You can also set minimum and maximum production limits and different costing methods for each BOM. Keep track of serial numbers, batch tracking , wastage and machine time. Compare actual versus schedule to find areas where profitability can be improved.
- Extended Production Module – This module allows unlimited components and sub assemblies per BOM. Components include inventory, items, overheads, labour, resources, alternate, milestones, outwork and “Phantom” assemblies. Each component can have it’s own notes. Work in progress costing is available at all levels of the build.
- Demand Analysis Module – Customer demand can be calculated from open sales orders, production runs, stock shortages and minimum stock levels or any of these in combination. The demand analysis module looks at sales quotes, orders, deliveries, invoices, job quotes and other production runs to produce suggested order quantities for the selected work orders.
- Supply Analysis Module – Streamline the management of your supplies using the Supply Analysis module. Using inventory stock level, open purchase orders, lead times and components required, the supply module simplifies the work flow of purchasing goods in a timely manner. Once analysis has been completed, purchase orders can be automatically raised in your linked accounting system.
- Job and Bulk Entry Module – Job Entry allows for quick data entry of production runs against existing BOM’s or sub assemblies. It also provides a facility to import transactions from external data files.
- Production Quotation Module – This module allows users to customise BOM’s to suit a particular request from a customer and provide a quotation based on the anticipated costs of the customised BOM. The BOM can be modified at any sub assembly level and assists in calculating the sell price based on full costing and margin information. Accepted quotes can be converted to planned production runs, and sales orders raised in the accounting system automatically.

Once the customer gives the approval, you can issue materials directly from the estimate or from supplier quotes that have been obtained and stored during the estimation process. Purchase orders can be created for estimates using a “wizard” function to ensure accuracy and timing for delivery of materials.
All types of costs can be tracked against jobs, such as materials, timesheets, labour, cash purchases and subcontractor claims. Invoicing the job via our project invoicing module allows you to see all costs and claims outstanding against budget prior to posting the invoice. You can produce a pro forma invoice for approval prior to posting to your accounts.

Time sheeting seamlessly integrates with ABM’s accounting system. When staff timesheets are entered, they automatically update the job with the relevant costs immediately.

Disbursements such as travel expenses and sundry costs can be processed in the timesheets module and posted against the relevant linked jobs, allowing for an easy way for sundry costs to be added to the job costing module.

IMPORT COSTING ALLOWS YOU TO COMBINE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT PURCHASE ORDERS INTO THE ONE SHIPMENT AND APPLY THE COSTS OF THAT SHIPMENT ACROSS THE PRODUCTS ACCORDING TO A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT COSTING METHODS, SUCH AS WEIGHT, VALUE OR VOLUME.
When costs are finalised and the goods are received, the shipment is updated and the stock on hand for each product is increased by the goods received and the unit cost used includes the suppliers cost plus a proportion of all the landing costs and charges that apply to that shipment.
The shipment information that is stored includes dates for leaving the port, in transit, estimated arrival and actual arrival dates as well as names and reference numbers for each shipment.
Costs incurred can be in a number of different currencies and may need to be allocated using different methods. For example, one cost may be apportioned by quantity and another may be apportioned by weight. Some products may attract duty while others don’t. Advanced Business Manager’s Import costing program allows for the full range of different options available.
Most Import costing systems only allow you to add purchase orders from the one supplier. Advanced Business Manager’s Import costing program allows shipments to be made up of purchase orders regardless of the supplier, allowing you to fill a container with products sourced from more than one supplier and still be able to allocate costs across all goods purchased.
Please click on the image for a brochure on the Import Costing module for Advanced Business Manager.
STRUCTURED STOCK MANAGEMENT
STRUCTURED STOCK IS ALSO KNOWN AS STYLES, SIZES AND COLOURS. IDEAL FOR THE TEXTILE AND FOOTWEAR INDUSTRIES, STRUCTURED STOCK ALLOWS YOU TO SELL THE SAME PRODUCT IN MULTIPLE DIFFERENT STYLES, SIZES AND COLOURS IN A MATRIX STYLE FORMAT. THIS REDUCES DATA ENTRY CONSIDERABLY AND MAKES IT EASY TO SELL MULTIPLES OF THE SAME INVENTORY ITEMS TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.
Similarly, you may need to buy products in multiple styles, sizes and colours from your wholesalers to stock and sell to your customer base. Advanced Business Manager’s structured stock module can assist with both buying and selling items by different styles, colours and sizes.
Other industries can benefit from structured stock. Timber, carpets, bicycles, plasterboard, and paper are just a few of the products available in the marketplace today that are sold by style, size and colour.
Typically, in the clothing industry, sizes are set as SML, MED and LRG or everything from XS (extra small) to XXL (extra extra large). These sizes can be set in sizes order, rather than alphabetical order, making them more logical for data entry.
The structures stock module supports EAN barcodes, allowing you to create different barcodes for each style, size and colour. The module also integrates with EDI and Scan Packing, allowing you to receive and send orders to the major retail chains and other EDI partners electronically.
By providing a matrix format for style, size and coloured items, customer and supplier invoice layout can be streamlined, making it easier to read and process transactions where the same or similar products are purchased or sold multiple times in the one order, invoice or delivery.
SUB CONTRACTORS AND RETENTIONS
ADVANCED BUSINESS MANAGER HAS SPECIFIC SYSTEMS TO ACCOUNT FOR SUBCONTRACTOR CLAIMS AND RETENTIONS AGAINST A JOB OR PROJECT.
When you setup a supplier as a subcontractor, you can assign them to specific tasks or jobs. As the subcontractor submits claims for the work done so far, these can be entered against the related job allowing you to keep track of actual invoices against budgeted cost for that subcontractor.
Subcontractor claims can also manage any tax to be withheld and paid on the supplier behalf.
When setting up a job or project, you can set a retention amount to be retained from customer invoices. The system will then track and report on the due date for each amount retained. This saves time and reduces errors when tracking the retention amounts and can make a difference to the profitability of the job or project.
Advanced Business Managers’ job costing system allows you to track parent and child jobs or projects and can be used to assist in tracking multiple jobs for the one customer, or branch jobs where reporting and cost controls need to be provided at both branch and head office levels.
ABM SERVICE MANAGEMENT ALLOWS YOUR BUSINESS TO EFFICIENTLY RECORD AND TRACK ALL SERVICE WORK PERFORMED FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS. STARTING WITH THE TERMS OF YOUR CONTRACTS, YOU CAN SETUP AND RECORD THE DIFFERENT FEATURES OF EACH ONE.
The next step is to link your customers to the various contracts on offer. Each customer may have a different number of items that require servicing. Each item is setup and tracked, complete with location, description, serial numbers and full history of all service and maintenance work performed.
ABM Service Management allows you to allocate open calls to service personnel for scheduling and has full calendar style tracking for appointments. Where the service personnel are remote to the main office, logged calls can be despatched to the engineers via portable mobile devices. Full tracking of time of call, time engineers accepts the call and time on site are all recorded.
Customers can log their own service calls using the Web Portal module. You can provide your customers with access to add a call, or simply view the status of their calls by logging in via a web browser.
Once a call has been finalised, you can invoice the calls from within the service management screen. Automated and recurring invoice routines can be used to make the process more accurate and efficient.
The main area of concern with most service management systems is the connectivity between the service work and invoicing. There is no need to rekey or import invoicing into your accounting system, as Advanced Business Manager Service Management is part of the accounting system.
Reporting is a key feature of any service management software. Managers need to be able to highlight the exceptions and view statistics or overviews by type of service call. Not only can you access reports that will provide this information quickly, dashboard style results are available on screen as soon as you log into the service management area and can be automatically refreshed.
EXTERNAL APPLICATION INTEGRATION
EXTERNAL APPLICATION INTEGRATION IS EASY WITH ADVANCED BUSINESS MANAGER’S OPEN SOURCE SQL SERVER BASED ENGINE.
If you are trying to export master file information from your accounting database into an external application, this can be done via SQL Script and can be scheduled to run at preconfigured intervals.
Custom fields can be added to the database and calculated fields can be added to transactions or master file records within the system. This allows us to make sure your system is uniquely modified to suit the business requirements.
Another feature designed with programmers in mind is the ability to trigger these third party programs on events within the system such as when adding a new masterfile or transaction record.
Advanced Business Manager allows programmers to drop their own programs into the accounting engine and they can be run seamlessly from within the package, so they look like they are part of the accounting engine. Ajendico have the correct tools and skill-set to undertake any integration of existing systems into the ABM platform.
