Happen Business Release Jim2 v4.2

Happen Business are the creators of leading ERP/Accounting software package, Jim2 Business Engine.

Sydney, Australia – 6 June, 2018

Leading Australian enterprise resource planning software developers Happen Business proudly announce new multilevel manufacturing functionality, and user security enhancements to Jim2 Business Engine.

Jim2 Business Engine is a complete business management software system used by hundreds of sales, service and manufacturing companies across Australia and internationally to manage every aspect of their business workflow.

The latest release, Version 4.2, arms sites with new features to manage fixed cost manufacturing functionality, perfect for businesses that use multiple sub-assemblies within their manufacturing process. Jim2 enables these sites to lock in costs at each level of the multilevel manufacturing process, while capturing actual labour costs, expenses and materials costs in the general ledger.

This new addition empowers businesses that run multilevel manufacturing processes to manage each level of the manufacturing workflow in Jim2, capturing quality data in this integrated system, enabling businesses to improve overall visibility using ERP software.

Jim2 v4.2 also features a range of enhancements to user security management that enable businesses to achieve greater visibility over user security access, and match users’ Jim2 security with the multi-faceted roles of their staff. For staff that job share or perform tasks outside of their core role, new functionality enables managers to attribute multiple role-specific security profiles to a user’s access which creates a new ‘effective’ security group that reflects the varied nature of their responsibilities.

This release also features new tools to review and compare user security ‘By User’ or ‘By Group’ helping managers to review staff system access individually and compared to other users, to ensure they have the right level of access, and identify changes. This update makes it far easier for businesses to manage Jim2 user access across the board. Other highlights include: Enhancement to Items which enables jobs or sales orders to be allocated to members in select user groups. New trackable report logging to record when a user views, exports or prints a Jim2 report. Enhancements to performance with Jim2 Server and Jim2 client now using less memory, faster at re-loading lookups, and faster at backups. New region-specific field naming, currency, date formatting and GST settings for Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Enhancements to nominate multiple email contacts that receive invoicing, statements, purchases, and to ‘email and print’ invoices and statements.
