New features for Financials, Logistics, Store management areas and updates to Mago4 price list

Don’t miss out on the new features of MagoCloud 1.6 and Mago4 3.4. We have prepared a summary of the most interesting ones, divided by functional areas. The new releases will be published at the beginning of December. More information is available in the Microarea private area (release notes and Help Center).

Financials
Romania
For the Romanian market has been introduced the possibility of disabling the control “Tax check service on customers / suppliers” while entering master data in “Preferences > Masters > Company user Master data settings”. In this way, you can update the information of a customer and supplier manually without proceeding with the automatic procedure that searches for the VAT number. The feature is useful if the external web service is not responding. Another new feature concerns the VAT Declarations 300, 390, 394 currently in use. You can manage changes to the fields without waiting for a new Mago release in “Company/User Accounting Settings”. 

Brasil
Starting from MagoCloud 1.6 e Mago4 3.4 it is possible to manage boletos, according to also the Daycoval Bank standard. Data has been updated to satisfy the technical requirements of the Bank.

Logistics and Store Management
Germany
An important innovation in the Store Management area concerns the integration of MagoCloud with ePOS, the Cloud point-of-sale solution. The integration of MagoCloud with ePOS Cloud is an important innovation. ePOS is a point-of-sale solution developed for the fashion market and only available for the German market (for now). We will explore in future newsletters the advantages of the integration of MagoCloud-ePOS and during dedicated training courses. Another new feature for the German market concerns the deposits, that since MagoCloud 1.6 and Mago4 3.4 are managed in WMS.

All countries
The Pre-Shipping project for Point-of-Sale Transfers allows you to exploit the potential of WMS in the field of point-of-sale management, offering seamless management of warehouse processes.

Imagine a chain of restaurants where the point of sale are supplied directly from the headquarter. A Pre- Shipping document is generated in the main warehouse of the head office, managed in WMS, for transfer between the point of sales. Picking in the warehouse is done via WMS Mobile, while the shop uses the InStore App to manage the goods receipt procedure.

Let's move on to another new feature that involves the Mago-TCPOS integration. It is possible to set the menu and the individual dishes available in the restaurant directly in MagoCloud and Mago4.

Invoices from receipts can also be generated in Mago, if the shop only issues the receipt and the invoice has to be sent to the customer at a later time. The new report "List of Invoices from receipts" is available to check this kind of invoices in Retail > Documents > Report.
The use of the Variant Management grid has been also added to all active and passive cycle documents.

With the new releases, you have three new reports at your disposal that allow you to monitor the progress of one or more Points of sale. The reports “On-hand by shop/storage/item and variants” check the quantities in stock per Variant in the different storages assigned to the stores. You can select a Vertical or horizontal view of the Variants. In the report “Stock by item number / variant / store number / storage number” you can display the available quantities of each item variant sorted by item number, variant, store number and storage number. The reports are only available for configuration that include the module Store Management.

My Mago Studio
Last but not least with MagoCloud 1.6 is it possible to import/ export customization made with My Mago Studio.

Mago4 Pricelist
Download the Mago4 price list in Microarea private area. The Infinite - PAT Connector has been removed from the price list. The function “Automatic transfers from cost centers to cost centers and/ or jobs/product lines” (Analysis & Controlling) is only included in the Enterprise editions.Finally, Variants Size/ Colors is incompatible with Bill of Materials and not, as previously mentioned, with Variants. The Prices remained  unchanged.

MagoCloud development tools
All you need to know about My Mago Studio, TaskBuilder Cloud, Reporting Studio Designer and MagoAPI

The ability to adapt to different business needs is one of the key features of MagoCloud, which is further enhanced by the development tools: My Mago Studio, TaskBuilder Cloud, Reporting Studio Designer and MagoAPI. These solutions have been developed specifically for the Cloud and allow you to make customizations and develop vertical solutions, integrated with MagoCloud.

On the MagoCloud website, you will find a page dedicated to the potential of these tools and in Microarea Help Center the technical guide to install, configure and start working with TaskBuilder Cloud.

Let’s take a look at the functionality of the customization and development tools.

My Mago Studio
My Mago Studio is designed for advanced users who are familiar with the application structure and data of MagoCloud. You can personalize reports (with Reporting Studio Designer) and documents, extend the data model and the graphical interface with a suite of interactive tools, available directly in the application product. My Mago Studio cannot extend the structure of the company DB, the data model is customized using a “logical database”. New tables and columns are stored in a dedicated json structure. Starting from MagoCloud 1.6 you can also import/ export customizations generated between subscriptions.

TaskBuilder Cloud
The development platform par excellence, designed to develop vertical solutions and applications that work in symbiosis with the ERP. Thanks to TaskBuilder Cloud you have access to the framework and tools that we use to develop. It is a very powerful programming platform that allows you to extend the functionalities of MagoCloud and customize existing ones, without changing the source code. Advanced development skills are required.

The in-depth guide is available in the Microarea Help Center. You can find information and video tutorials on how to install, configure the environment and start developing vertical solutions.

Before starting, it is necessary to:

  • Download the zip file of MagoCloud (different versions are available)
  • Create an account on the MagoCloud store (if you don’t already have one)
  • Send an email to assistenza.sviluppatori@microarea.it to request the developer role
  • Install and configure TaskBuilder Cloud
  • Follow the instructions in the Help Center and start developing your applications

The developer support team is available for more information, you can contact them at assistenza.sviluppatori@microarea.it.

MagoAPI
MagoAPI is an approach for interacting with a product installation: the MagoCloud back-end provides a set of communication APIs. You can insert data, extract business objects and work with tools of your choice, but they must be able to communicate via REST and work by interfacing bi-univocally with the MagoCloud API.

For interfacing via API, we have selected some specific functionalities that are exposed by various microservices, such as authentication, ESP, Data Service, etc. MagoCloud development and customization tools are constantly evolving.
