Border has started issuing the latest CounterAct update to its customers. Release 2-8B is a major upgrade with over 620 changes and improvements to the software.

Highlights of the issue include the ability to mass-release delivery notes, an option to use thermal printers to print account collection and return notes, as well as cash receipts.

Border has also added improvements to the way electronic signature capture pads operate for account collected sales. Other enhancements include the ability to determine how effective a supplier is by using information data provided by CounterAct, which shows supplier orders that have been, for example, delivered on time, in full or not arrived.

Finally, Border has enhanced the way CounterAct deals with specials. Users can now set a default analysis group for specials from a supplier as well as specify the default margin that they should be making on new special products from a particular supplier.

Full issue notes will be sent to all users when they receive the upgrade. Border will also be producing You Tube videos to support and highlight the most useful enhancements and to help users get the most from their investment in CounterAct.

The software is developed in-house at Border’s offices in Monmouth. All Border customers receive system updates as part of their support contract.
