Magic Touch Software releases version 8.4 of DLCPM™

  • Scheduling System: In the Global settings, under the TryIn Invoicing section, a new check box option has been added to transfer the completed Tasks to the newly added Case during Invoicing for TryIn.
  • In the Production Tasks maintenance section and the Product Task settings, a new check box option has been added to identify the task as a “TryIn Break Point”. If a given task is set as the break point, all tasks up to and including this task are re-scheduled. All tasks beyond the set break point are deleted from the case schedule.
  • In the Case edit Schedule tab, a new menu option has been added to the right click to set the break point manually and delete all subsequent tasks. This will clear the tasks that are not performed at this time. If the Forwarding Scheduling is used, the Ship Date will be set to the Due Date of the last Task.
  • A new check box option called “Partial TryIn” has been added to the tab for Invoice & Totals. If you intend to invoice for part of the case and send the rest for try in, this option will cause the system to prompt the user with the list of products that have been added to that case. In turn, the selected products are invoiced and removed from the newly created case (Sent for TryIn).
  • Technician Pay Rate: A new interface has been added for adding technician to tasks. You now may select multiple tasks to set the pay rate with one click as opposed doing it one by one. A new radio button set has been added to set a technicians pay by a percentage as it was before or Flat Rate by entering an amount.
  • Product Tasks: A new button has been added to this form to allow users to copy the tasks from the current selected product to another.
  • Case Entry: On the tab for Follow Up Call, a new check box option has been added to create the call for the default Customer Service Rep (CSR) or optionally select from the list.
  • Schedule Pickup: A new button has been added to schedule pickup for Customer or Practice Doctor. Some Customers may have practice doctors at a different address. This is available for both Local and Carrier pickups.
  • Shipping Manager: When creating shipment with UPS, you may now request return label to be printed. These labels are created for the purpose of providing your customers with a return label to send that case or any case back to your lab.
  • Customer Form: A new check box option has been added to the Practice Info below the License Expiration Date for prevent Case Entry if a Doctor license has expired.
  • Holiday Pay & Time Clock: On the Setting Page of Employee, there is a new field to enter the number of hours to be paid for approved Holidays. On the Holiday Maintenance section, there is a new check box option to identify the Holiday as a Paid Holiday. DLCPM™ will automatically check for the Holidays and adds the necessary time clock records for the Paid Holidays taking the number of hours assigned to each Employee.
  • Accounts Receivables: With V8.4, unapplied amounts on payments are no longer subtracted from the aging balances and are kept in separate columns. This new process requires at least one statement to be created after the upgrade. Although the unapplied amounts are not subtracted from the aging balances, they are included as part of Finance Charge calculation.
  • The check box option “Don’t Apply Finance Charge” has been replaced with “Apply Finance Charge”. During the conversion, all existing data will be corrected. If your lab doesn’t apply finance charges at all, this check box option will be disabled. A new checkbox option “Use Global Setting Rate” has also been added to allow specifying different finance charge rate for each customer individually. If this check box option is left unchecked, users will be able to enter a finance charge percentage different from what is set in the Global Settings.
  • Shipping Manager: A new option to verify shipment has been added to the shipping manager form. This option would allow scanning the barcode of a case that was recently invoiced to find out if this is the only case in the shipment or how many other invoices have been completed. This option eliminates the need to search through the entire list of shipments in the shipping manager.
  • Task Management: A new check box option named “Ignore Quantity” has been added to the Production and Product Tasks. If checked, the schedule is created with quantity of 1 regardless of the product quantity specified in the case.
  • In the Lab Settings, a new page called “Scheduling” has been added. On this page, users will be able to define Transit Tasks to be added to the schedule automatically. For example, users may now create a transit task with a duration of 1 day, which must be assigned on this page. During scheduling, depending on the settings based on the Invoicing or Production Lab, the tasks will automatically be added to the case schedule to account for the transit time.
  • Lot Number & Part Number Scanning: The lot number scanning feature has been re-written to allow for selecting of materials for each product when scanning the lot or part number.
