One of the Highlights of this weeks Release is the new Product Banning Functionality, allowing to specify products that shall not be sold to customers/ bought from vendors although they are defined in Product Prices. This detailed Feature is helpful when maintaining global Product Prices but wanting to limit the selling of certain rare products to customers.
Another great new Feature is the Vendor Assessment report, that provides Information about Vendors, Purchase Orders, Quality Issues in Material Receipts and more. This new Report is a very good starting point for Vendor assessments and comparison among all vendors of a company.
