ALERE Accounting v7.0 Released

EASTON, PA – May, 2011– TIW Technology, is pleased to announce
the release of ALERE Accounting v7.0 as the latest addition to the ALERE Business
Applications family of products. ALERE Accounting v7.0 represents a major advance
in accounting solution development. Three high profile features have in particular
set this release apart from the rest of the field.

The DRP (Distribution Resource Planning) module’s purpose is to determine
what is needed to replenish inventory at warehouses based on the criteria of
what is in stock and what are the current and future demands. ALERE uses MRP,
a time-phase order point approach, to calculate any necessary purchase orders
to maintain sufficient inventory levels.

The Commissions Module manages the sales commission process by giving the user
the tools to:

  • Designate who is eligible to earn commissions
  • Design rules governing which items qualify for commissions and at what
  • Calculate the commissions to be paid
  • Create a report listing those individuals who will receive payment through
    a payroll system
  • Create a payable for those individuals who do not receive payment through
    a payroll system

This module also provides a system for testing the rules before they are released
for use.

ALERE Data Acquisition is not a module but a new addition to the ALERE Business
Applications family of products. ALERE Data Acquisition comes embedded in ALERE
and is key-activated.

Using either wedge scanners or those running under terminal services, ALERE
Data Acquisition will help speed the entry of items on:

  • a sales order
  • a purchase order
  • shipping line items
  • receiving items
  • transferring items

Data Acquisition does all scanning in real time. Furthermore, it has the ability
to scan large numbers of items being entered on a sales order and total the
number of each individual item on a single line as opposed to the one scan/one
line approach.

These are but a few of a truly large feature set that has been crafted into
ALERE Accounting v7.0. If you would like to review all that ALERE v7.0 has to
offer, please use the link below to download a copy of the 8-page, full-color
