Version 10.0 – December 2015
We made dramatic user interface improvements in version 10.0, including major changes to Sales and Purchase Orders. For example, the SO and PO “Header” and “Detail” tabs were combined and re-organized. It’s a lot easier to quickly enter orders now. All screens are now re-sizable and can be maximized too. We’re using a more modern look-and-feel that looks better on Windows 10.
Version 10.0 includes a powerful Track & Trace feature for companies tracking lot numbers. It will look backwards and forwards, compiling a list of all transactions and customers receiving the product or any finished goods (assemblies) that contained the lot number as a component. This feature is critical for food and beverage companies, to ensure quick and accurate traceability reports for FDA and quality control.
We’ve also merged the separate “EDI Manager” into the main Acctivate desktop, along with support for processing multiple EDI partners and transactions all at once.
Authorize.net is now supported for processing customer credit cards, including the two-stage “Authorize and Capture” functionality (which is also available for QuickBooks Merchant Service).
There are tons of other improvements. Please be sure to read through the Highlights and Details (linked below).

Version 9.0 – May 2014
We introduced new integrations with best-in-breed cloud solutions, such as SmartVault Document Storage and Sharing, plus Avalara’s Sales Tax Service (AvaTax). These new integrations are sold separately as add-on modules.
We also included some major improvements to the core Acctivate software. The ability to easily move, insert and delete lines on Sales Orders and Purchase Orders. We added a Sales Order Scheduling function to the Sales Order Mgmt tab of Business Alerts, which lets you re-schedule a huge number of sales orders quickly and accurately after receiving stock in from purchase orders. We made numerous improvements to lot/serial numbers and introduced great stability for companies managing a large number of lot/serial controlled items.
Email settings are now available per-user. This is a great enhancement for companies using cloud email services such as Office 365 or Gmail.
