Product Updates - December 2017

TINA mid back office system updates

Now, you have the possibility to group the suppliers by category

A new field has been added in the Suppliers section, allowing the user to select a specific category it belongs to and to filter by it in the section. These new categories are available also in Fees management and Automation rules (Process services on orders and Add invoices), as it can be noticed in the images below:

Users Access and Access Profiles sections were redesigned

A new option - Agency - has been added in the Users section, from the Setup Module. This offers the possibility to define the access for each user.

TINA - define access for each user

Once an access profile is set for a specific user, then the User access option will be disabled. The access level can be updated either by modifying the access profile or by removing it from the user's profile.

The auto-balancing sections were merged and rebuilt

New changes have been included in the Auto-balance section from Financial Module. Now, users have the possibility to create multiple balances without confirmation, using the bulk management option. 

The balances suggestions cover both ticketing and other services.

The way the scoring is given depends on the elements existing on both Service and Supplier Invoice (for example the confirmation number, external reservation id, external reservation date etc.) - if they are matched, the score is higher and if they are different, then the score is decreased. Also, once one of the elements is missing, either from the service or from the supplier invoice, then the scoring will be ignored. 

The scoring can be seen for each component that is taken into consideration, by hovering the progress bar:

The entire process that offers the auto balances suggestions is triggered by the CronJob -  Auto balance services, that must be added and configured accordingly.
