CAPITAL Business Manager is an integrated Australian accounting and business management solution designed for small to mid sized companies. It has a strong focus on inventory control, warehouse management, distribution/wholesale, service management (such as field service with call scheduling) and job costing, production/assembly, hire/rental, and assets with scheduled maintenance.It also incorporates a full range of financial management functions for business, such as cash manager, general ledger and GST reporting.Many systems sound great on paper but aren’t all that friendly or flexible once you use them. Does your current system let you open an existing quote, select 5 items, press shift-click, and let you seamlessly paste those selections into another quote? Or in other words, was your existing system built by real world users or only by computer programmers?
My Work Day
A great place to start each morning in CAPITAL Business Manager V8 is in the My Work Day window. My Work Day summarizes appointments, to-do list tasks, quotes requiring follow-up, unpaid customer or supplier invoices, the status of open service manager jobs, and has an overview of your workload. And if you’ve also installed CAPITAL Sales Force Manager V8, it tracks the status of open cases, leads, opportunities and contacts requiring follow-up. You can add or view transactions or activities, or ‘roll up’ those areas that don’t currently interest you, giving you more screen space to focus on what you’re working on.
Lots of Connections
A CAPITAL record such as a customer, supplier or job, connects automatically to their transaction activity, as well as notes, contacts and documents. For example, attach a credit application to a customer account or write a note with dynamic spell checking included. And entities such as customers and suppliers may have sub-entities such as sub accounts (for when the main entity is a head office) as well as sub-contacts, such as the contact details of the accountant, purchasing officer, managing director and so on. Contact groups (i.e., all ‘purchasing officers’) can also be selectively emailed in bulk, using the Send Wizard.
Made a mistake and need to edit an invoice before the goods are shipped? No problem. Don’t want John from the warehouse to be able to change an invoice? Easy. Or perhaps give Sue or Shane editing permission but only for transactions that are 24 hours old. The choice is yours.
CAPITAL software has been around for a really long time. Nearly 30 years in fact. So it’s had plenty of time to become really smart. Would you like to know what you last charged a customer for a product item you’re billing him right now, even though he doesn’t have a special price arrangement entered in the software? Or be reminded that product X (which is out of stock) is equivalent to product Y? (Which you do have in stock.) Or automatically convert an order into one or more purchase orders with the click of a button? Or produce a sophisticated product catalogue complete with product images? How about recording serial or batch numbers before the goods have arrived or after they’ve been invoiced or at any point in-between? Or how about producing a stock take for a random selection of your most important ‘A Class’ products? Or having the system forecast what stock items you’ll want next month? Or sending a customer a statement with copies of all unpaid invoices included? Need multi-location, multi-shipping address, multi-department, multi-currency, multi-company handling? CAPITAL is just about ‘multi-everything.’
No system may be able to do everything you may want, so for when very specialised requirements are involved, CAPITAL Business Manager V8 comes equipped with an internal scripting engine called CBS, short for ‘CAPITAL Business Script’. Do you have a complex credit control procedure? For example, the credit limit might be a little more flexible if your customer has no overdue transactions? Or you need to upload invoices to specialised software across the web or selectively restrict which customers may purchase which items? It can all be done with CBS. And if you’re not technically orientated - and most users aren’t - get one of our CAPITAL consultants to write the CBS script for you. CBS lets you combine all the benefits of off-the-shelf software with upgrade compliant custom solutions.
