Examples of Rapid Development
The XRP development tools enable you to customize and develop new features rapidly. For instance, when you are in a sales order, you can add an item. Today you can select an item from a drop down list, that has a small pop-up window. If you want to see a full window, you will have to customize that pop-up window, and make it expand fully. With most competitors such a new feature would take a week of development time. With Acumatica this takes about 30 mins, once you are trained for about 2 hours in the customization of features.
See how easy it us to do the above in the text below.
In the Sales Order (SO), Expanding the Dropdown List of an Inventory item to a Full Window
When you are in a sales order, you can add an item. Today you can select an item from a drop down list, that has a small pop-up window as seen below.
When you go to inventory ID column in the Document Details grid, you can select an item from a dropdown list when clicking on the magnifying glass. A small pop-up window will appear as seen below.
If you want to see a full window, you will have to customize that pop-up window, and make it expand fully.
An Acumatica ERP consultant shows you how easy it was to accomplish this in about 30 mins. Click here to see his blog post.
Result: The Expanded/Full Window
2. In the Sales Order (SO), when you select a warehouse, show also the available inventory besides Quantity On Hand
When you are in a sales order, you can add an item and you select the warehouse for that item. When you select a warehouse, you will see the quantity on hand but, not the available quantity (quantity on hand minus quantity already allocated to Sales Orders). To see the available quantity, you have to do some scripting but not programming C# in MS Visual Studio. This will take a few hours in Acumatica but not weeks as with legacy ERPs.
The result of the programming is shown below.
