ABM Tips

Are you constantly re-running the same reports

Did you know:-

If you leave a report displayed on your screen for some time the information that is displayed can get out of date if there are other users processing transactions in ABM. This is useful for:-

  • Monthly Financial Reports
  • Just minimise the report, process journal transactions and press the refresh button to update. The refresh button can be found next to the print button on the report ribbon.

“We have used Strategic Software for many years for our Accounting Program as well as our Payroll and have found them to be extremely efficient and reliable. They have a vast knowledge of Accounting Systems and Payroll, nothing was ever a problem. Payroll was a very easy and painless task, Strategic Software took care of every aspect and the reports we received weekly were very detailed with all the information we needed. We have since changed our programs to match our Head Office, however . . . during the change over Strategic Software couldn’t have been more helpful. Their understanding of what was needed was paramount for a smooth transition.”
