The Repair Shop Module uses the department and work center structure and assigns cost parameters and varying burden rates by department. This is helpful when handling both internal repairs and outside service work. Job Types can define the item being repaired and users can define a nameplate template based upon each type. Labor Codes are user defined and these are used for quoting labor, tracking actual time and invoicing repair work. Labor and Material can be charged to a job from the shop floor using bar code technology and work stations strategically located on the shop floor. A full slate of Job Reports lets you keep up with the status of each job as it works its way through the repair process.

Order Processing with a flexible Point of Sale feature lets you handle the sale of equipment and parts ranging from counter sales to blanket purchases with extended delivery dates. Quotes for the sale of items or parts can be created and converted into sales orders or directly into an invoice with a single click of your mouse. Flexible look ups and inquiries let you search inventory, non-stock items and vendor catalogs to quickly find the item your customer is looking for.

The inventory Module manages the items that you stock with both Min Max and Order Point and provides costing flexibility with Average, Replacement, Standard, High, and Landed Cost plus the option of LIFO or FIFO. Lot and Serial Number Tracking are also available if required. The attachments feature lets you store pictures or related documents like material safety data sheets with each inventory item.

The Purchase Order Module is interfaced with both the Repair and Sales modules and Purchase Orders or Requisitions can be generated for non-stock items directly from a Repair Estimate or Sales Quote. Purchase Order line items for repair or sales related items can be tagged listing the specific Job or Sales Order number. At purchase order receiving items related to a job are transferred with their cost to the job cost folder eliminating the concern over lost receivers resulting in items not appearing on the repair invoice. Drop ship purchases orders can be created from both repair and sales. Purchase Orders can be e-mailed or faxed from the system or printed and mailed to the vendor. RFQ purchase orders are also supported.

The new CRM Module empowers the sales force letting them track their activity with both customers and prospects. Activities can be scheduled and maintained using the calendar function and notes of all meetings and events are stored in the contact history file. Mailings and e-mails can be sent to individual contacts and the mass mailings of letters or e-mails to selected audiences, using flexible filtering criteria is another option. Access to all customer information in the Repair and Sales Modules is available to the sales force via look ups and information drill downs to help them stay current with customer needs.

The Financials Package includes General ledger, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable with an optional Payroll Module. The General Ledger is the cornerstone of the MASTER Accounting Software and it integrates with all of the other applications for automatic postings of all General Ledger transactions. Supporting the Work In Process (WIP) Accounting functions all repair postings for labor and material are accrued to the appropriate Work In Process General Ledger accounts and a monthly WIP Reports is generated to balance with the GL WIP Account balances. A Financial Report Generator is supported to create custom financial reports beyond the standard reports contained in the GL. Financial information can be exported to Microsoft Excel for additional analysis.

Our Accounts Payable module aids in the efficient cash flow management of your business. Stay in complete control of payables tracking, and check writing functions. Save time with invoice entry matched to purchase order receipts, flexible invoice payment selection, and a built-in Bank Reconciliation feature. The Accounts Receivable module is an easy to use system for processing cash receipts, issuing statements and follow up for collection of open invoices. Flexible Aging reports can be generated for managing receivables. Customer comments, customer notes, and invoice notes all aid in the receivables collection effort.

The Payroll module provides an easy to use processing solution in the face of increasing government regulations and more complex employee benefits requirements. Multiple pay structures and deductions are satisfied with user defined earnings, deductions, taxes and employee contributions for multiple states and localities. Direct deposit is supported.
