Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2006 -- 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.
Version 9.30 was released on December 1, 2005. Encompix customers Automatic Systems, Inc., and Delta Technologies were involved in the beta testing.
In addition, there are significant changes to many other areas of the system including enhanced Job Costing, Contribution Reporting, and 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 onto the Encompix menu.
