Operations

OPTIMIZED AND CONTROLLED

Dams, bottlenecks, crises, high tides and floods. If the operational business flows, users save valuable time and the company increases efficiency. Use tacoss.eTRADE to ensure the efficient and transparent handling of your business transactions and cover all important process steps clearly and accurately.

Goods management


Integrated order system


The integrated ordering system can be used to generate and monitor offers and order confirmations for customers or price requests and orders from vendors. This also means that you can park an order process for using it in the weighing system at a later time. Also transport and vehicle orders can be generated automatically from these parked processes. Being able to post goods receipts also simplifies the order processing for the purchase of goods.

 

Shorten throughput time, optimize inventory management, reduce input errors, and improve product control by parking the predefined orders. In this way the data entry can be redirected to the responsible departments. 

The ordering system also covers stock transfers. Storage facilities can register their demand for goods with orders, which are affecting the inventory and offers, which are not affecting the inventory.

In the program windows for managing orders and goods purchases, the user can display processed orders and delivery instructions. 


Fleet management


The transport order can be generated automatically from a purchase order or can be entered directly in the transport order window manually.

The module tacoss.eTRUCK can be used as an option to ensure a smooth flow of disposition and fleet management. This module contains the program windows for recording, coordination and handling of transports and logistics via transport and vehicle orders. Scheduling, weekly schedules and delivery lists can be created for own vehicles and external forwarders. The software supported contract management helps the user i.e. by displaying contract rates which need to be fulfilled. 

Logistics costs such as freight are assigned to the order and order items. The freight rates can be stored in separate freight tables based on customer, quantity and distance, and can be assigned to individual contracts and special conditions. The truck toll can be recorded and evaluated separately. 

 

You can send freight documents to the forwarding agents or receive freight bills from them. When you enter the freight invoice, you are presented with all the underlying freight movements. This makes it possible to check the individual freight positions by quantity and value. 


Third-party goods


tacoss.eTRADE enables you to handle third-party goods quickly and flexibly. You can process these in the invoice credit procedure and in the incoming / outdoing invoice procedure. The sales process is linked to the purchasing process via a database reference and can thus be explicitly evaluated. 

You can address purchase and sales orders as well as contracts when editing and processing third-party goods. Route-based provisions can be created for a day-to-day valuation of the company.

A simplified example shows the software-supported handling of third-party goods.


Commission


During order entry the programm checks automatically whether a commission is available:

  •  storage
  •  outsourcing
  •  external storage
  •  preemtion 

If it is available, the program identifies it and allows you to view stocks and movements for the respective commission. You can also display the average qualities in regards to all movements of the current commission (for example, in the case of storage).


Scales


tacoss.eSCALE can be used to connect weight-based vehicle scales, flow meters as well as bulk scales and multiple weighing systems for  loading train wagons. The connection takes place via a self-developed communication layer, which is adjusted system-specifically. The current weighing systems and protocols are already supported. 

Systems which are not yet known can usually be implemented within one day. Your advantage is, that no third-party software is needed. We directly connect to the weighing system, which also includes the internal alibi memory. Serial weighing systems can be connected to a networked by using a specific tool. 


Cash sale


The checkout module allows cash transactions, incoming and outgoing cash payments, as well as cash sale. A cash invoice can be printed immediately. In addition to the classic order entry mask, a reduced, comfortable POS input mask is also available.

Data entry can be done by means of a scanner or by entering the article number or description. It is possible to assign different barcodes per manufacturer to the same article. The prices are stored in a cash sale price list. 

You can also work with special offers and promotion prices. Receipt printers, displays and card terminals can be used for your transactions. 

A cash report is prepared for each fund, which must be concluded at the end of the day. The integrated user- and rights manangement allows you to determine which actions could and should be carried out by whom.


Energy (Fuel oil and diesel)


Enter and process your inquiries and orders efficiently and flexibly and keep track of past orders with individual access options for processed transactions. 

Using the eCTI module, the inquiries and orders can be processed quickly and all information and price agreements are available to the user at any time.


Petrol stations


Automate your processing in the area of fuel data processing and billing. Whether it is your own consumption or your customers' fuel card bill - automatic data exchange, importing of fuel quantities and assignment to orders ensure a smooth process and maximum transparency. 

In regards to billing, the system supports direct debits, discounts and one-off costs, such as deposits.


Production


The production module in tacoss.eTRADE allows you to manage your different production types (feed, fertilizer, seeds, etc.) clearly, comprehensibly and with the involvement of 

  • batches
  • batches
  • storage areas
  • recipes
  • parts lists
  • costs
  • inventory entry
  • commissions
  • weighing orders, etc. 

Detailed evaluations support the production process. 

 

Production quantities are recorded via parts lists, consumption or inventory changes. This data can also be read and processed by means of component-based consumption files when exchanging with external systems. The evaluation of individual components and products takes place on a daily basis per article, if necessary warehouse-related.


Pricing


The software has a comprehensive system for determining prices, increases and reductions, discounts, parities and terms of payment including specifications for the calculation of due dates. These can be stored in the customer as well as in the sequence control (workflow), the contract type, and, of course, in the contract itself. Depending on the transaction type and the rights, these properties can also be adjusted directly in the order or in the order item. 

Customer-based conditions and prices can be set in the following areas: 

  • contracts
  • Purchase
  • special conditions
  • Delivery addresses
  • Articles
  • subgroups
  • main groups
