Saving users valuable time and effort is one good reason to adapt ERP solutions and business software. For this reason, the developers of ASWAQ6 were keen on building a lot of time saving features and procedures in the product. Below, you will find a few examples of these features and procedures.
Data Entry Reduction Measures
ASWAQ6 provides for "document templates". When setup and enabled, it allows users to fill certain fields with default values in any of the ASWAQ6 documents. For example, a repetitive sales invoice may be setup to include a default date, payment type and branch as it is initialized. Global templates can be setup to apply to all users, while each individual user may setup his or her own template for each document.
Documents Templates in ASAWQ6
ASWAQ6 provides for "recurring documents"; a feature that allows system implementers to setup repetitive documents. Unlike many other accounting products, ASWAQ6 does not restrict recurring documents to journal entries. Most of ASWAQ6 documents may be setup as recurring documents. The procedure to generate the repetitive documents is straight forward and robust.
ASWAQ6 may automatically general some special documents that are recurring by nature, like depreciation documents for instance.
ASWAQ6 provides for "document reversal" in many of its document. This time saving feature allows users to reverse a certain document with a few mouse clicks. For instance, a certain journal entry might be reversed simply by selection an appropriate tool after displaying the journal entry.
ASWAQ6 provides for "Duplicate" feature in all its documents and master & basic files. Using this timesaving feature, users are allowed to create an exact replica of a certain document or record with a few key or mouse clicks. For instance, all it takes to create a duplicate of a certain purchase order is to display the PO, then select the appropriate tool from the "tool" popup menu.
Context-sensitive smart search has been characteristic of ASWAQ since more than a decade. ASWAQ6 expands on that by providing auto-complete, multiple clipboards, and multiple inserts in documents as well.

Automatic Document Generation is another handy feature. For instance, while creating a payment voucher, the user may create a check and link it to the payment voucher without having to leave the original document.
Users can make their own "favorite functions" lists similar to the "favorites" feature found in internet browsers. Advanced users can setup their own menus to replace ASWAQ6 standard menus altogether.
