Rework of Messages in Main Menu with new Release 13.20 No Comments

Release Highlights 13.20

In version 13.20, significant enhancements have been implemented in the “Messages” module:

There are now three Categories of Messages: System Alerts, News and Tasks. By setting up Messages of type “Task”, it is possible to notify Users about specific Tasks which have to be completed by them (like, for example, Invoices which have to be approved). Messages of Type “System Alert” and “News” can be used to distribute general information of any kind to Users, whereby it is also possible to use up to ten Pictures in Messages of Type “News”. It is recommended to user “System Alert” for Messages with high priority and the Type “News” for Messages with medium and lower priority.

Example for System Alert:
Notification-Center4
Example for News :
Notification-Center5

In the Main Menu, Users are informed about the number of new (unread) Messages:

Notification-Center6

Clicking on this icon opens a sidebar in which the Messages are shown. Clicking on a Message opens it in a popup.

Notification-Center7
Messages of Type „Task“ include a „Go To“ link which directly opens the appropriate Module for the respective Task. (For example, if a User clicks on “Go To” in a “Close Financial Period” Task, the “Close Financial Period” module is opened.)

Review – Digitalization in the canteen kitchen (March 2019) No Comments

Digitalization

On March the 28th, 2019 the symposium for digitization in the canteen kitchen took place in Leipzig. The Catering Management team organized a great event with a lot of interesting lectures in the Westin hotel.

We also attended the event as partners and exhibitors and gave a lecture together with our partner ventopay. Our joint presentation was not only about the interaction between our inventory management software and the ventopay POS system but also about the future of our market. We are researching and working on solutions that will be indispensable in the coming years in order to meet the requirements of canteen catering.

Among the speakers was our partner Eaternity, who talked about the integration and displaying of CO2 values together with our customer Apleona. Two years ago we created an interface to Eaternity and have been part of the pioneer work for CO2 reduction. The integration between the two systems gets the CO2 values per item in real time based on the menu plan. Therefore the CO2 values together with allergens and nutritional values can be easily labelled and displayed. 

This is mainly about transparency but also about raising consumers’ awareness. The consumption of meat and its production is a big environmental problem and so it is not sufficient to just label the CO2 values. At the same time it is important to focus more on the preparation of vegan and vegetarian dishes in order to offer table guests a tasty and varied alternative.

Why every software developer should also be a hacker No Comments

sec4dev: Conference and Bootcamp

From 25th to 27th February 2019, the Campus Gußhaus of the TU Vienna was transformed into a hotspot for regular exchange and further education on the subject of secure software development. The sec4dev-conference offers practice-oriented lectures, workshops and full-day boot camps in the areas of secure coding, secure operation, security testing and much more. Participants will have direct access to the knowledge and experience of security experts, software developers and software architects.

People who have been involved in computer science since prehistoric times are always saying: “In the past, security was just firewalls, and that’s it“. And that’s probably true: If a computer has executed code, it has been protected by simply making it inaccessible to the rest of the world via a network.

As a software company, the topic of “security” has of course always been very important to us. As a technology leader in our industry, this topic will continue to be a major focus in the future. Therefore, it was a matter of course for us to participate in the 2-day event to extend our knowledge. Susanne and Christian represented our development department at the event and learned a lot of new interesting topics.

“Only the latest hacks are presented at the security conferences, the latest tools are presented at the software development conferences, but so far there has been nothing that connects these two areas,” says Thomas Konrad. A small team from SBA Research (Julia Pammer, Stephanie Jakoubi, Thomas Konrad and Yvonne Poul) has set up sec4dev , the first conference in Austria that combines these two areas.
