At Exact we never sit still. We are constantly innovating and seeking ways to enhance and improve our software so that we can continue to support you as effectively as possible.
Curious about what we're doing right now? Take a look at Exact's innovation kitchen and discover what else we have in store for you.
We do our utmost to achieve the scheduled innovations. However, we would like to emphasise that this schedule is subject to change at any time due to certain circumstances. No rights can be derived from this.
With Exact Warehouse Management (Exact WMS), the orders are picked up and collected by the warehouse employees, also called order pickers. They can see on the hand terminal where the goods are and how many are needed. The optimal routes of the order pickers are also determined with Exact WMS. Based on rules, the system indicates exactly which items must be picked from which warehouse location. In Exact Globe+ WMS extra is added to determine when goods should be picked from the pick location and when from the bulk location. If a customer wants a large quantity, then it is slimmer to pack full pallets directly from the bulk location. In Exact WMS you can already specify a limit value and this option will be expanded further. This way, your order pickers don't walk unnecessary miles in the warehouse. And you increase the number of orders that someone can pick up in a day. This saves you time and costs!
Capture the services of the office and link it to your clients. Innovations that make it easier to monitor service progress will follow later.
In Exact Online, you can already retrieve various Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) together with the corresponding benchmarks. However, retrieving and maintaining all this for each company requires quite a lot of work . That is why we are also working on a so-called KPI monitor that allows you to keep track of specific KPIs you can select for each company. We will keep an eye on all your companies for you and we will alert you when a certain KPI exceeds a fixed upper or lower limit. This enables your branch to proactively alert your clients when certain expected or unexpected opportunities arise or to warn your client about specific threats.
With Exact Warehouse Management (Exact WMS) you digitize your physical goods flows with barcode scanning. Receipts and barcodes are required at many points in the process. Think of pallet labels, receipt labels or product labels with barcodes, which are printed on receipts from a supplier or from production. BarTender is the solution to print such labels and is integrated with Exact WMS. In Exact Globe+ we support the latest 64-bit version of BarTender, which is release 2022. These innovations are planned for Exact Globe+. Our platform for the future. If you want to use this and the other many innovations, install Exact Globe+.
Exact Globe+ comes with additional SDK options to create your own bank sizes and custom layouts. In the future, a developer will be able to develop company-specific bank links. Consider, for example, a foreign bank that has a specific bank format. It also becomes possible to perform essential checks in the link, such as checking the bank number. In addition, it is made easier for a developer to adjust the Exact layouts themselves, such as the invoice or quotation. This way you have more options to, for example, make your quotation company unique. Exactly the information you want to show.
Exact Globe+ is our platform for innovations. And business software often does not stand alone. You can also work faster and smarter through good links with other software systems. For example, think of your website, a solution for your transport planning or what not. Exact Globe+ offers you the tools to easily and quickly create links. These tools will be further expanded. Think of new and improved web services for deliveries and making changes to orders or invoices.
We've expanded the CRM functionality in Exact Online Accountancy. It’s possible to add partners and children to contacts. This will give you a more complete picture of your client.
With Exact WMS you digitize the processes in the warehouse, using barcode scanning. At order picking we use the handheld scanner to register the goods that need to be picked and send to the customer. In a lot of cases you need to register the picked serial numbers as well. By that you can trace back which numbers are delivered to the customer.
When delivering multiple items, you need to scan the individual serial numbers. To save time these serial numbers can be combined in one 2d barcode which is available on the box.
Soon we will support the option to scan this 2d barcode and then register the pick of all the serial numbers inside the box! Instead of opening the box and scanning all the numbers inside, you just scan one barcode, saving you a lot of time, possible errors and making the picking process even faster.
The technology of our latest Exact Globe+ product has been completely updated. This solution is even easier and faster to use and has a contemporary look and feel. We have also updated a number of functionalities, such as the native PDF engine support.
When you have created documents, you may wish to print them in PDF format. You can generate a native PDF print in Globe+. This means you do not have to select the correct PDF format manually. This also ensures full compatibility with the installed fonts. You no longer have to use a trial and error method with barcode fonts or fonts with specific characters, for example. Finally, the document is now identical to the printed version in terms of text alignment, margins and so on. The settings for the PDF and printed versions match perfectly!

No more emails, phone calls or PDF documents, but a digital chain collaboration where you can only exchange electronic messages from your ERP system directly to your supplier's or customer's ERP system. Exact is also working on further digitising the chain. For example, we are working on the efficient exchange of purchase orders with affiliated companies via the Smart Connected Supplier Network.
Single Sign-On (SSO) is a form of authentication where you, as a user, only have to log in once to access multiple applications. This means that you will soon have to log in to just one environment instead of several. Extremely efficient and convenient!
