EnterpriseOne Version 2.3 is now out

1. Role-based user experience

The entire user interface is now role-based. The roles determine the style, type and behaviour of all screen forms. Role-allocation is a modern method for security management and user experience management.

2. Fully reorganized user interface
The User interface has been fully modernized. The new style, influenced by the latest trends in user interfaces, is neater and more accessible. Users who prefer a more classic style, however, are given the option to switch between styles.

3. Third-party hosting opportunities
The new options of the server part of EnterpriseOne make it suitable for specialized third-party hosting. This means that independent data centers can now offer EnterpriseOne hosting not directly connected to ALOE Co. 

4. Binary TCP/IP communication support
The Client and Server part of EnterpriseOne can now communicate via binary TCP/IP protocol. Up to now, communication was possible only through the HTTP channel over TCP/IP. The new protocol is highly suitable for use in busy networks as several microseconds can be shaved off each server call

5. Conditional colouring
All navigators and templates now allow conditional colouring. For example, the Margin Analysis report allows colouring in red for losing transactions and in green for profitable transactions. The Sales template allows the user to introduce colouring for insufficient quantities, etc.

6.
Server administration

The options and the security system of the server part have been significantly improved. Server administration now follows security rules defined in the so-called “Administrative base”. There is also an option for entering a “master” password for administration purposes.

7. Other changes

The version contains a series of smaller changes in the platform, logic and server part. Some of those improvements are:

-
Fully overhauled and improved appearance and functionality of EnterpriseOne Server Manager
-
Capacity reservation and schedule changes are now possible for issued Operational orders 
- Types of suppliers connected to the security system
- Comparison of actual sale prices with standard prices
- Assessment of goods transfers per standard prices
- Visual editing of data fields now includes time (reminders, meetings starting time, etc.)

9.
NEW MODULE: FINANCIAL ANALYSIS
The new module allows structuring of financial data and visualization of different parameters of the financial analysis. With the help of the new modules, parameters such as Profitability, Turnover ration, etc., can be visualized and compared.
