- web-based search facility will speed up invoicing & improve cashflow
Bristol, UK, 2nd October 2008 – bluQube a leading vendor of financial management software, has today announced PinPoint, a new module for its bluQube accounting platform. The new web-based specialist search tool enables both finance professionals and corporate decision-makers to quickly gather and display all relevant financial documents relating to an accounts record on a single screen.
There is a wide choice of search criteria available such as ‘supplier’, ‘customer reference’ and so on and results will also track relevant correspondence such as emails with the ability to send further communications such as SMS alerts direct from the screen. Users of bluQube will be able to access PinPoint at any location where there is an Internet connection making it ideal for executives on the move.
bluQube CEO, Simon Kearsley, commented on PinPoint; “This new functionality has been created in part from the feedback we have received from our existing customers. One of their biggest daily frustrations is trying to locate and collate all the documents required from different files and sources to support or validate a financial decision. This new software will overcome this problem by displaying on a single ‘pop up’ screen all the documents a user needs with just one ‘click’ of the mouse. It’s incredibly easy to use so you can view pertinent documents quickly. This makes it perfect for both finance and senior managers who might want to chase an unpaid invoice and needs to analyse the trail of correspondence with the debtor. The simple single screen interface is also a very practical solution for those who want to view information on mobile devices such as a Blackberry.”
He adds, “PinPoint extends the availability and knowledge of both the finance department and other key members of an organisation’s management team so they are able to make financial decisions quickly and autonomously.”
The Key benefits of PinPoint are as follows:
• Saves hours of man-time searching for lost or misplaced documents
• Provides an instantly devolved self-service tool that can be used by any authorised user e.g. budget holders, senior management
• Improved efficiency as cheque and other authorisations can be carried out remotely
• Improves cash-flow as debtor’s queries are resolved quickly and alerts can be set when invoices are due for payment
• Improves security as all information is automatically backed up to bluQube
• Allows invoices and other documents to be viewed remotely at different sites without physically distributing the document
• Searches can be made on any criteria relevant to the user
• Can be used to send out messages such as reminders to mobile devices using e-mail to SMS service.
PinPoint can be accessed from any screen within bluQube including the personalised on-line Portal. Documents can be retrieved and displayed using a wide choice of search criteria, such as ‘supplier’s name’, ‘supplier code’, ‘document name’, ‘status’, ‘date from’ etc. For example if the user searches on ‘supplier’s name’, the information will automatically ‘pop up’ with a complete history of every document associated with that supplier on a single screen. In conjunction with using bluQube’s ‘Document Manager’ products (including VersionOne), even paper-based records such as invoices can also be retrieved.
