Unimarket 4.17 contains the much anticipated ability to change the amount on a blanket order. We have also added more unit price invoice matching options and an improved layout of Unimarket emails to make them pretty.
Change a Blanket Order Amount
For a while now you have been able to change the dates on a blanket order, however the situation often arises when you might need to also change the available funds. An example might be a blanket order for project consulting work that needs to be extended to meet new project deliverables.
To cater for this we have added the ability to increase or decrease a blanket order amount and route the changes (if increased) for approval. The best part is, all versions of the order are linked, so suppliers can still invoice the original order number.
When increasing the blanket order amount users can include a justification for the approver.
Decreasing a blanket order will warn users of any existing release orders and invoices allocated to the blanket.
Invoice Unit Price Matching
We have added a new unit price matching option that applies the matching tolerance to the item unit cost, and ignores the total value of the line. You can use this if you want to ensure each individual item falls within a prescribed tolerance.
Other Enhancements and Fixes
- The Unimarket generated emails have been cleaned up and made to look pretty just like the application.
- The validate-account-code integration has been made more flexible to allow the approver to be checked for funds authorisation instead of the buyer.
- General bug fixes and security improvements.
