The latest edition of Encompix ERP Software, version 9.30, was released on December 1, 2005.
According to Roger Meloy, Director of Marketing for Encompix, "There are significant changes to many other areas of the system including enhanced Job Costing, Contribution Reporting, Manufacturing Part processing and Serial Traceability. Some newer features include Alternate Item overrides, Project Reserved Inventory and Long Lead Item (LLI) processing. The new Automated Clearing House (ACH) functionality processes direct payments between banks in the United States. The user-interface has been updated with a more modern look and feel and the system provides a mechanism for adding custom programs and external files on the Encompix menu."
The highlights of version 9.30 include three new standard modules. They are Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to integrate prospect visibility and tracking through customer orders and service, a new Nonconforming Materials (NCM) module to integrate quality tracking through purchasing, shop floor and inventory and a new Engineering Bill of Materials (E-BOM) to provide item revision control, a BOM import and BOM posting to jobs. These new modules are included in the standard product for no additional charge.
Chuck Stewart, Executive Vice-President of the Cincinnati-based ERP Software firm noted, "The majority of these enhancements are driven directly from the input we receive from our engineer-to-order customers."
