PrimaV® FSC Accounting system

Automatic cost determination and control

The demand for FSC-certified material is constantly rising as it guarantees the consumer sustainable forestry practices. Here, the focus is on a product’s entire value chain. From the processing, the dealer, and to the end consumer, certified FSC goods must not be mixed with other materials.

The PrimaV® FSC module provides all the necessary functions to ensure a consistent flow of FSC goods. It considers the entire product chain, from purchasing through production, to accounting.

A prerequisite is providing the FSC markings for the master data within the PrimaV® application. This includes customers, vendors, sales items and materials, as well as the associated vendor items.

The printout of the FSC category (incl. percentage for FSC-Mix) and the article-specific FSC number can be made on the order side as well as on the customer side.

A final evaluation or comparison of the receipt of goods and the outgoing goods (including rejects) can also be generated.

EDI - Electronic Data Interchange

Fully automated data exchange

PrimaV® EDI makes it possible to convert business data (such as orders, delivery notes, invoices) from your own ERP system into structured and standardized data and send it electronically, in just a few seconds.

This gives you a great potential for rationalization in your business transactions. With EDI, you can significantly reduce the manual effort required, while increasing data quality.

EDI can give you competitive advantages over those not using it. It improves your company’s organisation and simplifies and intensifies business relationships with partner firms (suppliers, customers, freight forwarders, banks, etc.). In this way, you can prove your quality and skills to your partners competence, for example with just-in-time deliveries.

Prerequisites for using EDI are standardised data formats for messages and uniform communication channels for their transmission. To achieve this, both business partners need EDI software. Our partner is Softzoll GmbH & Co. KG in Berlin.

PrimaV® supports the following message types:

Orders (commissioned by customer)

ORDRSP (order confirmation to customer)

Desadv (Delivery Advice Message)

Invoice
