Exact Software offers version 10 of its shop-management software, JobBoss. The new version is fully compliant with the 32-bit business-edition versions of Microsoft Windows Vista Business, Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate. As a result, users can take advantage of Vista’s enhancements, which include a new user interface, an improved search engine and more powerful graphics technology. The software will continue to run on Windows 2000 and Windows XP workstations.
In addition to Vista compliance, the software offers various usability enhancements and new functionalities. These include vendor price breaks to ensure more accurate material pricing as well as greater flexibility for transferring raw materials from a job back to stock. Also, improved raw stock look-ups in both order processing and purchasing enable users to quickly and easily find materials to place on jobs or purchase orders, the company says.
