Delegate Australia spent the day at ‘Dietitians Unite 2018’ conference in sunny Brisbane. The team enjoyed mingling with Dietitians and getting the Delegate brand out there. The event is run by an organisation called Dietitian Connection, made up of passionate Dietetic leaders who strive to share knowledge and experiences to inspire and encourage learning amongst the Dietetic community. The organisation has over 3,400 members from around the world, networking and accessing information about market trends, and being supported by being kept up to date with latest and greatest, actively making use of social media to get their information across.
The Delegate team found it uplifting to be connecting with a group of young and enthusiastic Nutrition professionals.

If working processes become more and more complex in a company or institution, then the probability rises that in one form or the other Authorization Processes are necessary in order to structure and organize what permissions and rights employees have. Authorization Processes enable a company to monitor actions and control User limitations. These mechanisms can take effect for example if Purchase Orders and Receipts or Transfers are booked.
These processes can also be represented in Delegate myMMS & Patients Service. The application hereby provides a technical solution to the simple question what an employee is allowed to do and what he is not allowed to do? Who does have the right to authorize or book documents? Whose permission is required for Purchase Orders/Receipts to be booked? What can an employee decide for himself or his Role and for what processes the permission from a superior is needed?
With version 12.20 the whole Authorization is now officially released. For more detailed information, please see User Manual “Delegate myMMS & Patients Service – How to use Authorization”.

Like many other companies, we too ventured a step further into the digital age and created our Xing and LinkedIn company profiles in 2017. Before doing so, we asked ourselves: Why use Social Media channels, and for what specific purpose?
We reflected a lot on the issue and wanted to make a clear decision when taking this step. It was very important for us that we do not simply create a profile and upload content now and then. We rather wanted to plan ahead and create a distinct added value for our existing and future customers and potential employees. After a period of intensive planning, we started our Xing and LinkedIn profiles last year and will continuously evolve them in 2018.
To put if briefly: Our Xing and LinkedIn Accounts will be strongly aligned with the news section on our website, providing interested parties with the most up-to-date information. These news will also cover product enhancements and interesting features in new software versions. We noticed that communicating such information to our customers becomes increasingly difficult, given the sheer volume of the Release Notes and Documentations. Therefore, we want to present important new functions on our Social Media channels as well.
In future, we will strongly promote communication with end users as well as potential employees via our Facebook und Instagram accounts. We will provide current news there, but rather in a summarized version whereas the other platforms will feature in-depth reports. We will also report about features, configurations and other interesting issues. With this approach, we want to respond to our customers’ and end users’ needs, enabling them to conveniently view smaller portions of important information instead of having to read Release Notes containing 100+ pages.
Our Social Media channels will also reflect our Newsletter which we previously issued twice per year. We will process the individual topics into concise, well-structured reports and continue to provide you with all relevant information about our product enhancements and events in the future.
Digitalization at your fingertips
Style matters, also when it comes to food. Therefore, attractively designed menu plans are important in large-scale catering. Moreover, the European Food Information Regulation sets new labelling rules for allergens, additives etc., creating an increasing demand for practical labelling methods.
This is where Delegate as provider of modern material management solutions comes into play together with qnips. This innovative company supplies solutions in the field of apps and digital signage and provides just that: attractive menu plans which include comprehensive information on allergens, additives, nutritional values etc. in apps, via (touch) displays, via web or as PDF – fully customizable and highly efficient.
Based on an xml interface, the customer can export all the required information from Delegate in a simple and convenient way and transfer them into a comprehensive system provided by qnips. This comprehensive data retention enables individual information such as pricing levels as well as all allergen, additive etc. specifications required by law. Nutritional values can be displayed in great detail and it is also possible to display versatile and customized icons, images and more.
Learn about the menu plan export of your Delegate solution now and benefit from the advantages of a fine-tuned partnership!
qnips GmbH offers customized, industry specific software solutions for efficient customer retention, accurate quality management and integrated mobile payment. These solutions are based on advanced interfaces and versatile tools from qnips’ own module toolkit, with which, among other things, already existing menu plan data from material management solutions can be processed for further usage.
Customers can use systems based on the qnips module toolkit via apps for iPhone, Android & Windows Phone or via any form of display solution with our without touch function.
As already reported in our news section around September 2017, we have changed the licensing model with the new version 12.20
With Version 12.20 the Licensing Model has been rearranged. Instead of the previous used “etc.dll” License-File the new “etc_new.dll” License-File will be needed. The existing Licenses have been rearranged into more meaningful groups. However, the User Right Settings will be backed up so that in case of a forgotten License, the current settings won’t be lost.
Please note that we will no longer provide an empty Test-License during the installation to grant access to MMS Base functions, so the new License-File has to be available at the time of the installation. Please communicate a planned update to version 12.20 as soon as possible to your Delegate Projects & Services team so that the new License-File can be checked twice before it will be delivered.

The whole last week had been dedicated to our franchise partner “Delegate Benelux” with further planning for 2018. We reviewed and analysed the past year and made new plans for this year.
We are living this partnership under the brand name “Delegate Benelux” since a couple of years already and the business has grown over the years. Our partner did not only take over some existing customers from the Benelux region, he also managed to get new customers on-boarded. The current team has been successfully expanded to make sure to deliver the best services possible.
The main topic was to review the year of 2017 and the strategic planning for the future as well as optimizations on both sides for an even more efficient collaboration. We also discussed new customer projects and the existing Delegate road-map for further feature development as well as specific requirements for customers in Benelux as well as general requirements for the Benelux region.
