System Wide Functionality
NewVision Distribution Software is a scalable solution that consists of modules
and granules within those modules. This segmentation offers
you the maximum flexibility and allows you to purchase
precisely the functionality that you need to fit the
requirements of your business. As your business model
changes and you develop the need for additional
functionality you simply purchase the required granules.
adds two additional dimensions to the general
ledger and to any of the other ledgers in
NewVision. You can assign dimension codes to
each transaction that involves a general ledger
account, customer, vendor, fixed asset, or
inventory item. In addition, you may define
default dimension values and rules for the
default values for all account types (G/L,
customer, vendor, item, etc). This feature lets
you easily add dimensions to all transactions.
Examples for use of this functionality would be
to identify projects, profit centers, regions,
Advanced Dimensions gives you an unlimited number of
dimensions to use in transactions in all ledgers. In
addition to an unlimited number of dimensions, you get
advanced dimension capability that allows you to:
Set up rules for how to combine dimensions and dimension
values. This will assist you in controlling the use of
dimensions and make output based on dimensions extremely
Set up rules for prioritization of default values. This
gives you the possibility to define dimension rules to fit
your specific business processes.
Set up and use analysis views. In analysis views you can
analyze general ledger transactions per dimension and
combine dimensions as you require.
The security features are a function of the NewVision
database. User IDs and passwords control access to each
table, window, menu, and function of NewVision. Users can be
assigned to customized menus and windows to provide each
user with only the functions necessary for his or her job.
Security has two levels. User IDs and passwords gives you
control of access to the solution, and gives all designated
users full permission. User Permissions and Control is an
advanced and detailed system for assigning and limiting user
permissions. It requires the configuration of user IDs and
Multiple Languages enables the user to switch language on
the client in real time provided that the language is
available in the program.
Multiple Document Languages allows you to set up alternative
descriptions of your inventory items and to print reports in
multiple languages (for example, you can create invoices in
the receiver’s language). The descriptions can be linked to
individual customers as well, which is especially useful for
sales in foreign countries. The alternative item
descriptions are automatically selected through the Sales
Order and Purchase Order options.
Multi-Currency makes it possible to manage multiple
currencies throughout the system including payables and
receivables, general ledger reports, resource and inventory
items, and bank accounts. Currency conversion is performed
according to exchange rates that are stored and maintained
in the exchange rate table. You can transact business in any
number of currencies for any customer and vendor. For
example, companies can issue an invoice in one currency and
accept payment for that invoice in a different currency.
This feature lets you define a set of reason codes which can
be assigned to individual transactions throughout the
system. This provides for an analysis tool to be able to
determine, for example, reasons for lost sales and quotes,
or reasons for returns.
The three Designer Granules, Table, Form, and Report and
Dataport Designer, give you unparalleled flexibility to make
changes and modifications to the NewVision Software. The
changes made through these Designer granules are made at the
object level ensuring the ongoing integrity of your system.
With the capability of making many of your own changes you
can continue to “fit” the software to your changing business
needs and reduce the long-term cost of ownership.
The Table Designer allows you to change existing table
definitions or add new fields to existing tables and create
new tables to store data specific to your requirements.
Also, you can create new keys for sorting information in new
ways, and you can change or create new flow fields and flow
filters for “slicing and dicing” information in new ways.
With the Form Designer you can change existing forms; remove
data fields currently on the form, add new data fields, or
move them to another location on the form. You can match the
data entry screens with input data forms or create custom
screens by user for field level security.
Report and Dataport Designer
This granule allows you to change existing Reports and
Dataports or create new ones. You can create new reports
through a “Reports Wizard” or copy an existing report to use
as a starting point. Every report in NewVision is created
using this tool, and therefore can be easily customized.
Dataports are used by the system for importing and exporting
data. You can, for example, create a dataport to export data
from the NewVision system to an Excel spreadsheet or to any
