Links! - TIW’s new ALERE Accounting package
and shopLink integrate seamlessly. Install shopLink, answer a couple of
straightforward questions and the links are established instantly! Now
you can have an integrated accounting package and an entry-level
manufacturing system from one vendor - TIW!
Images for Bills of Material - Up to two images
can be assigned to any bill of material! Adding images to a BOM is easy.
Just click on the new BOM Image tab, double click in one of the
two path fields, and select the image you want. The BOM will accept BMP,
GIF, JPG, and ICO formats. Export CAD drawings as BMP files and include
them in your bills!
Each image can have a description associated with it that will accept
virtually unlimited text! Write all you want about features, options,
assembly instructions, or any other “special” notes! Using the TIW Dynamic
Screen Sizing technology, the screen can be stretched to enlarge
the image or show more lines of description!
BOM Child Hyperlinks - Child records on the BOM
Child tab are hyperlinked to the inventory list! Simply highlight a
child record and open the Inventory screen. It will automatically
find and display the inventory information on the child! This is an
excellent way to validate inventory settings and check stock levels!
Finished Good Location Defaults - The recent
introduction of ALERE™ Accounting, with its host of new features,
allows the capabilities of shopLink to be expanded. The first area to
benefit is the material order.
The ALERE Inventory Module supports default locations for each item.
When a material order is created, the default Location, Store, and Bin
can now be looked up for the item and automatically entered on the
Language Settings by User - This new feature
allows each user to be assigned a default Language on the User
Login Options screen. In shopLink the most practical use would be
setting defaults for the report options.
For users who want extended control over shopLink, the WorkShop
Developer’s Source Kit can be used. The Language settings
could be used to support different languages, resizing screens,
presetting screen options, etc.
Diskless Workstation Installation - Here is a great way to
quickly install the five user version of shopLink on a workstation
without a CD! Just double click on SETUPMU.EXE and the install process
for the workstation is automatically started! The program can be found
in the program directory and is optionally installed during the server
Special Function Keys - To make life a little easier, the special
function keys to use for Add (F7), Get (F8), and Save (F9) have been
added to the buttons on each screen!
Support for Build 2501 - For our users who operate on the
Pro/shopLink platform, we have included in this release compatibility
with ACCPAC Pro Series Build 2501!
HTML User's Manual - The User's Manual has been
rewritten in the HTML format and uses Internet Explorer for viewing.
This means that every user can have their own copy of the manual right
on their desktop. The manual is much more useful because it works like a
web site and newer versions can be downloaded for free from the TIW web
