PROGRESS BILLING

August 21, 2017

Progress billings consists of a series of invoices that are prepared at different points in the process of a major project to seek payment for a percentage of work that has been completed so far.

A white paper is now available that discusses the preparation steps, creation of the Sales Order, and the release of the progress billing invoices when using ALERE for this function.

SOLIDWORKS INTEGRATION

May 12, 2017

Perhaps the world’s most popular CAD software, SolidWorks, can be integrated with ALERE.

Display the 3D modeling of products by inserting a hyperlink to the CAD file in ALERE where the image is to be displayed.

Clicking on the Hyperlink will start the SolidWorks E-drawings Viewer which will let you view the SolidWorks file without being able to edit the CAD data.

Hyperlinks are supported by single purpose apps. So any mobile device that will run the viewer will extend this capability remotely.

Importing bills of material from CAD assemblies is accomplished using the ALERE Import BOMs utility in the BOM module.

FIELD SERVICE

ALERE supports field service work. The native ALERE package comes with all the tools to handle field service work. This includes making appointments using a graphical schedule board, managing service personnel, creating work orders to track job costs, and even estimating time and distance between appointments!

The advantages include complete native integration; remote data entry using single purpose apps; access to the material planning resources; documentation of all costs including overhead; documentation of on-site equipment conditions and work done, and inventory control.
