With Elliott's Note feature, you can maintain key information throughout the system. Notes can be used to record your phone conversation with your customers, vendors, employees, and more. Notes can be printed on selected reports (i.e. invoices, picking tickets, acknowledgements, Bill of Lading, and more). Notes are integrated with the new tickler function. Notes also have an advanced search function.
Elliott will allow users to launch a menu item automatically from the command prompt. For example, NW32 02 0101 02 will start Elliott in the A/R module, customer file maintenance, and change mode.
Laser Forms Designer
A graphical user interface laser form designer is used for the laser forms implemented in Elliott. The designer allows you to create a template for each form, such as invoices and purchase orders. For each form you can change the margins, change the line thickness, color and position, specify your own text literals and use your own company logo.

Laser forms with bar codes

COP Purchase Order
PO Purchase Order

Elliott supports all Windows printer names up to 220 characters long. Elliott also supports saving printer dev mode, which means any printing characteristic of a printer driver can be saved and remembered in Elliott by workstation and report. For example, you may choose to print a certain print job to a certain printer and paper tray and Elliott will remember that and use it the next time as the default. You can also send a print job to multiple printers at the same time. For example, you can print one copy of a picking ticket in the office and one copy to the warehouse at the same time.
From the print options window users now have the option of choosing "Email" in addition to "Print", "Defer", "Screen", and "Spool To Disk". The print job will be sent as a .TXT file attachment. This is particularly helpful in emailing order acknowledgements to customers or emailing weekly reports to supervisors. It is important to note that the Email functionality found in ELLIOTT will be greatly expanded upon in future updates.
In Elliott, you can setup links just like you setup note. You will need to provide a valid document path in the link (and URL path is also consider a valid link) to associate with each master record (like customer, item etc.). For example, the contract you negotiated with a customer may be a word document. You can put that into the link for that customer. An image for an item can be setup in the link for an item as well. A hot key can be assigned to link. For instance, you can simply type ALT-I (or any key you choose) to bring up the item image from the item file maintenance or stock status inquiry.
In addition, you can
use Link to implement view map features. Elliott will provide
the view map feature in the customer file maintenance/inquire, vendor
file, employee file, salesman file, order inquiry and invoice history
inquiry. For example, from the customer file maintenance screen, by pressing
a hot key, the system will launch your browser which will take you to
Yahoo Map and show you the customer's location on the map.
Think about Event
Handling in terms of the e-business solution you want to provide your
customer. Event Handling is a one of the features that truly makes Elliott
The results of any search can be modified. Once the emails are sent to the selected contacts, a history file is updated with a copy of the email for later review.
Multiple e-mail processors
may be run at the same time, even on the same machine, because each process
has a separate handle to MAPI.
In Elliott, the administrator can force either all or some users to periodically change their password. The administrator can also define the number of login attempts allowed before the user account is suspended. A summary format of User List is provided now to make it more readable.
The administrator can link a user to a salesman. If a user is identified as a salesman, additional restrictions will apply to this user to prevent them from accessing another salesman's orders or customers in the following areas: Contact manager, order entry, order edit list, acknowledgement, quote printing, sales desk, stock status inquiry, freight calculation, order and invoice inquiry, open orders by salesman report, customer file maintenance & inquiry and customer account inquiry (both original and summary). By utilizing Internet and Terminal Service technology, it is now possible to allow remote sales or manufacture rep to login Elliott to view their orders, invoices and customers information securely.
New security flags
are also added to control the following:
It is suggested that
you review new Elliott security flags in Global Security immediately after
you upgrade to the latest version of Elliott.
How will the Webservices Components benefit you? You will be able to develop an application for order entry on your web site which will call the Webservices Components for Elliott's order entry. This means all you need to know is the Elliott Webservices Component interface. You do not need to know or write the complex order entry code yourself. It's that easy and you can use any tool such as Visual Basic, ASP.NET, Visual C++, etc that supports Webservices.
Components are available as an add-on package to Elliott Business Software.
