ATLANTA, April 20, 2016 – Exact, today unveiled Macola 10.4, an enhanced version of its flagship ERP and business software. New features and functionality including enhanced workspaces, business intelligence functionality and a financial consolidation tool are being added so that manufacturers and distributors need to look no further than Macola for help in automating, powering and growing their businesses.

The company released the news at its annual customer conference Exact Macola Evolve. Currently taking place in Atlanta, Exact Macola Evolve 2016 focuses on trends and disruptions in the manufacturing and distribution markets and how that information is driving new product development.

Macola 10.4 new features and benefits include:

  • Workspaces 2.0: Macola 10.4 includes a new generation of personalized workspaces that streamline day-to-day business tasks. In addition to an enhanced UI experience, users can now extend workspaces functionality into transactions and configure menus that give them direct access to the functions they need most during the workday.
  • Exact Insights Powered by Qlik: Coinciding with the release of 10.4, Macola will make available a new business intelligence tool that offers users deep informational insights into their businesses. Macola tapped the Qlik analytics platform as the engine behind this new tool -- Exact Insights. Users can pose questions in the tool in an interactive fashion and drill down into analytics around different parts of the business, from sales to inventory levels – creating real-time ad-hoc reports.
  • International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS): As part of its expansion strategy into Latin America, Macola 10.4 will now support the IFRS model for financial reporting used by many countries in the Americas and hundreds of countries around the world.
  • Financial Consolidation Module: Macola 10.4 includes functionality that allows users to aggregate financial data from multiple business divisions for a true 360 view of business financials. With this module, users can work across divisions, and even pull in financial data from outside the Macola software.

“Seattle-Tacoma Box Company is proud to be able to stay on top of the technology that is continually being released in Macola,” said Cindy Nunley, controller at Seattle-Tacoma Box Company. “We are excited to start exploring the new functionality offered in 10.4.”
