San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2006
DBA Software Inc., a leading provider of manufacturing (MRP) solutions for small business, has released version 3.1 of its DBA Manufacturing Next-Generation software package. The single-user version is free of charge and can be downloaded from DBA’s Website (http://www.dbamanufacturing.com).
“With version 3.1, our manufacturing solution can be used with any accounting system,” said Michael Hart, President of DBA Software. “This capability is ideal for any company that is satisfied with its existing financial software, but needs to improve the manufacturing side of its business. It also provides a smaller-scale manufacturing system for any branch office or division that must tie into a corporate ERP system.”
DBA accomplishes this through its unique Manufacturing Ledger, which uses a parallel chart of accounts to store all the financial transactions generated by the manufacturing system. All financial detail remains in DBA, complete with audit trails. On a daily basis, customer and supplier invoice totals are transferred to the accounting system for payment and collection purposes, and once per period a summary total for each account is transferred to the general ledger.
“You can use your outside accounting system for the financial functions of receivables, payables, banking, payroll, and general ledger,” continued Hart, “while DBA handles the manufacturing functions of planning, production, purchasing, and sales.”
For companies that wish to operate within a single system, DBA includes its own set of integrated financial modules, consisting of Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Banking, and General Ledger.
“From a price standpoint, it makes no difference whether you use our financial modules or those of an outside system,” said Hart. “The entire DBA system is sold for a single package price, regardless of which features or functions you decide to use.”
Other significant new features in version 3.1 include a job control panel, which enables jobs to be released, processed, and closed in batches instead of one at a time, and a custom item generator that enables jobs to be created for custom products that are not defined with a part number and standard bill of material.
DBA’s Features Guide, which provides a comprehensive list of all system features, has been updated for version 3.1 and can be downloaded from the Features page of the company’s Website (http://www.dbamanufacturing.com).
