Transition to a more secure Amazon Web Services cloud storage, better integration of Roger with ORiON EDI or more advanced records of packaging materials in LOKiA WMS. Read the most important news we added to our systems in 2021. And also what we have in store for you in 2022.
This year was a turning point for ORiON, as we moved the entire platform to the global Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud storage. Thanks to this, we can now develop our solution even faster and add new functions; moreover, by switching to Amazon's servers, we have accelerated ORiON itself and increased the security of stored data.
More than 4 million documents per month are now transferred through ORiON. This has resulted in a large archive in twenty years of operation, which is why we have introduced a regular shredding of documents for which the statutory archiving period has expired and which are, therefore, no longer needed.
Another novelty in ORiON is the so-called liquidator - a module for processing invoices. This is used to compare the receipt and the invoice according to the delivery note number and thus prevents errors and differences between the stocked goods and those actually invoiced.
We have also improved the connection between ORiON and the Roger Payment service, thanks to which you can shorten the maturity of invoices. In addition to a better technical connection, we have also made several changes in the options for setting up and working with this service.
Since more and more foreign customers use ORiON, we have also prepared new language mutations in German and Hungarian.
Although we spent a lot of time improving existing functions in the past year, we also introduced a few new features. One of them is inline editing, i.e. the possibility to edit data from the document directly in the lines of the waybill, without the need to switch to editing mode.
We have also improved the work with duplicate invoices and now offer the possibility to use virtual validation of documents, thanks to which an external company will check the documents after extraction to see if everything has been extracted correctly and, if necessary, adjust or supplement them. You no longer have to check the extracted data from the invoice.
Furthermore, we implemented the function of templates in the Billing module, so that you do not have to constantly bill recurring documents manually. We have also improved the Recurring Payment module with overviews of recurring documents and further developed the Orders module, in which it is now easier to create recurring orders and work with foreign currencies.
Since iNVOiCE FLOW runs on the same platform as ORiON, we moved it to Amazon Web Services cloud storage. Thanks to this change, new possibilities for the future development of both products have opened up for us.
The LOKiA WMS warehouse system can now record packaging materials. At the beginning, you enter into the system, for example, all the types of boxes you use for packaging and their quantities. After that, you just write down which box you used for packing. The system will automatically reduce their stock and notify you as soon as new ones need to be purchased. Especially e-shops praise the function the most.
Pallet locations have also received improved records, which will be especially appreciated by companies that rent warehouse space. Thanks to more accurate records, you can now see, for example, whether a given pallet is unpacked or not. The Loading module has also been upgraded, which now enables the recording of picked or packed goods at the loading transfer position.
We have also introduced new management reports for a better overview of the data. In addition, we continue to collect feedback from you customers and improve the reports based on it.
Stocktakings have received a minor improvement - the recalculation of goods by individual pieces and entire compartments is now optimized, both in the web interface and in barcode readers.
The Android application has also received many updates, which now offers far more functionality and is noticeably faster.
Over the past year, the Roger Invoice financing service has come a long way and established new collaborations in the logistics industry with the companies ESA logistika and C.S.CARGO. On the Czech market, for example, Alza, Datart, MALL.CZ, Pilulka or Rohlík use this service, now satisfied customers can also offer the service abroad. At the moment, Roger has a payment license for Poland, Slovakia and Spain.
The efficient functioning of the Invoice Financing service depends primarily on EDI invoices. Thanks to a simple connection with the new ORiON interface for the electronic exchange of documents, everything can be arranged online in a few clicks.
