Release 5.2.99 May 13, 2024 barney

Includes database changes you need to log terminals out during upgrade

This version includes a new POS terminal integration option into Tillpayments terminals. At time of release the solution is not certified for production use yet but assuming all goes well with ongoing testing/cerification this version will be the first version that permits direct connectivity to tillpay terminals without having to go via PCEFTPOS / Linkly. Desired outcome is to eliminate presence of Linkly entirely and avoid all the reliability and complexity issues that come with it.

This version includes a significant functional change with Unit Finance Sales.  Previously finance sales would post sporadically to AR and AP balances creating a mass on AR/AP statement for the finance provider. This behaviour is mainly because of how v4 AR/AP worked and has remained in place since. This version of c9 exploits newer capabilities in v5.2 c9 to heavily rationalise onto one or the other while keeping the number of lines on the contact txn list to a sensible minimum.

  • For Finance contacts tagged as debtors / both : everything will rationalise onto AR
  • For Finance contacts tagged as creditors : everything will rationalise onto AP
  • For straight purchases invoicing Both / creditor : everything will rationalise onto AP, otherwise AR
  • Note that encumbered tradeins the encumbrance will always post to AP (as before)

Generally with this change in place you may want to flag your finance providers as being 'Creditors' so that circumstances where encumbrance is same as finance provider then everything rationalises onto AP.

This version advances a ease of life too started back in 2018 : statement reconciliation.  Import a PDF statement file and cross check it against txns in your system. A heap of changes here to try and make it more useful. Targeting KTM group dealerships first because their 'statements' are not statements in the classic (correct) sense and their accounts are extremely challenging to reconcile against because of this. Hopefully this tool will be especially useful here. Goto view transactions on your KTM Group supplier, click on statement reconciliation and feed in a KTM statement pdf. Things it does

  • Match txns on PDF statement against txns in c9.
  • Matching is 'fuzzy', so copes with slight typo variations, missing or extra characters in reference, mistyped numbers etc
  • Help visually identify missing or misinputed invoices.
  • print or export result to csv
  • KTM specific nonsense:
    • filter to spares only to remove pages of floorplan stuff
    • Mash split payments on statement into a single record
    • Some logic to try and filter older records in c9 but not on ktm statement because ktm only show things they consider 'open'
