Features Overview

Features to make your system easy to use, yet effective.

MBG Software is suited to many different business environments. It meets the requirements of sophisticated users, and is flexible, fast and easy to use. This system presents easy to understand programs due to the consistency of its operation. Options can be set to your company's particular way of doing business. Various options are available in every aspect of the system. System development began in 1978 and continues today. Countless hours have been invested to give you the best feature-rich, completely integrated system on the market today.

The software is designed as a multi-user system, and can support dozens of workstations and peripherals. The workstations and printers can be connected directly to the main system via a local environment, or communicate over the Internet remotely for instant control in a distributed environment.
Multiple Companies
The software is capable of running over 1200 different and separate organizations. Under each organization, over 1200 divisions, branches, warehouses or departments can be defined.
The software controls all facets of inventory movement and sales analysis. Data can be analyzed by combining and/or separating locations and departments, or most combinations.
Workstation Types
The system supports terminals, personal computers and some cash registers, depending on the hardware configuration.
The Security system allows the system manager to take advantage of the multi-level password protection capability. This provides very tight control over employee access to every major function in each of the modules. Passwords can be changed as often as desired. The security system will only display menu selections to the operator that s/he is authorized to use.
Reports and Listings
Complete Reporting and inquiry capabilities are supported by all modules. Some reports can be displayed to a workstation instead of on hard copy. When a paper or processing trail is necessary, an inquiry is not allowed.
The software makes inquiries available where appropriate. There is no reason to confuse operators with a lot of useless inquiry features that will never be used.
Functions can be selected through the menu or, as a user becomes more knowledgeable, by code allowing direct access to the desired functions.
Most prompts are standardized throughout the system. However, some are user definable. An example would be finish structures or options associated with a base item number. Consistency is appreciated in menus, reports, inquiries, and all transaction screens making each system easy to learn and use.
Help Look-ups
Look-ups are available throughout. Under inventory, look-ups are possible under item description, category, item number, or various combinations. Customer and Vendor masters can be accessed by name or number, or you can define additional fields to suit specific needs.
User Fields
The software provides user definable fields in Inventory Master, Accounts Receivable Master, Accounts Payable Master. The fields include places to identify codes, dates, amounts or anything the user may need. This can be valuable information displayed on reports, used to categorize or used for inquiries.
Parameter Driven
The software has thousands of combinations and options to suit any operation. Special reporting to General Ledger, Sales Analysis, Salespeople Commissions, Inventory Costing Methods, Accounts Receivable, and Accounts Payable can all be accomplished very easily and quickly.
Editing and Verification
The software has a high degree of intelligence. If data is entered that cannot be verified, it will simply not be accepted. This minimizes errors that are common in most systems.
Accounting Periods
The periods are pre-defined and can be left open until you officially close the year.
On-Line Updating
The system updates all critical data immediately including Inventory availability, outstanding orders, customer credit information, and many other performance metrics.
NBC can create and tailor these functions to meet your requirements. You define processing streams by function and daily, weekly, or month end processing. This allows the computer to work without operator supervision. All types of documents, listings, reports, and updates can be done with the auto-processing system.
The system has been developed with standardization and consistent operation in mind. From system design and programming to operator functions. Once the user has been introduced to the software, no matter what function is selected the screens will look and feel familiar. This gives the operator confidence and minimizes errors. This assures you of a system that is easy to learn, understand and use.
The software allows labels to be created from Vendor, customer or mailing list master.
Sample Data Base
Upon request, the software can be installed with a sample (or test) data base which is separate from your live data. This is the ideal place to experiment and train employees.
Automatic Defaults
The software allows users to establish defaults for a variety of information. Salesman, tax status, warehouse/location, store location, mode of shipment, etc. In using such defaults, common or repetitive information is entered automatically. This arrangement reduces errors and can be overridden if necessary.
Audit Trails
These are provided throughout the software to assure accuracy, making it very easy to track problems to the original source document.
Data Base
The software is a hierarchy of Data organization using an industry standard access method. Optional Data base is the Relational data base from Oracle.
