  • Release Notes for Release 5.0
    QAD CSS Version: 5.0
    Release Date: January, 2008
    QAD Product Suite Compatibility: QAD 2008 Enterprise
    Note: During the product life cycle, QAD changed the name of the former MFG/PRO eB2.1 product to QAD 2008 Standard. Individual releases are identified by a decimal number; for example, QAD 2008.1 Standard. (The Service Pack 5 and 6 releases were branded as QAD 2007 and QAD 2007.1, respectively.) The Enterprise Financials version of the product is called QAD 2008 Enterprise and follows the same convention of identifying individual releases with a decimal number.
    The following fixes and changes are included in this release and require additional configuration and installation change.

    New and Changed Features
    This release of QAD CSS fully supports QAD 2008 Enterprise; it cannot be used with earlier versions of QAD product suite.
    QAD CSS now supports item replacement. This feature lets the customer place orders for item B as a substitution for item A when the original item A is no longer available. Replacement items are defined in Item Replacement Maintenance (1.23.1) in the QAD ERP.
    QAD CSS now supports item up-sell. This feature lets the customer place orders for replacement items or assemblies that are an upgrade or a level above the requested item in the item’s product structure when the requested item is not available during order entry. Up-sell items are defined in Item Up-Sell Maintenance (1.23.5) in the QAD ERP.
    QAD CSS now supports item cross-sell. This feature lets you offer to the customer items in addition to the item being ordered. Cross-sell items are typically complementary products to the requested item but do not replace the item being ordered. Cross-sell items are defined in Item Cross-Sell Maintenance (1.23.7) in the QAD ERP.
    This release of QAD CSS includes a new context-sensitive help system; as a result, the Help Maintenance module is now obsolete.
    QAD CSS now commits sales orders to the QAD ERP through an API instead of CIM loading. Also, sales order field mapping has changed in this release.
    Only active and complete customer records in the QAD ERP can now be loaded into QAD CSS.
    Credit Card Security Code (CSC) can now be provided during credit card payment in QAD CSS. This code is a three or four-digit number that appears on the credit card and provides a cryptographic check of the information embossed on the card.
    The credit card address now defaults from the billing address of the shopper. Previously, the shopper had to enter a billing and shipping address and then enter the address associated with the credit card.
    The Type column is removed from Credit Card Report as AR type is no longer used in the QAD ERP.
    A new Market Desc field is now available to provide detailed marketing descriptions for each item. This field is displayed in the item detail page and can be turned off in Item Layout Maintenance in QAD CSS.
    You can now look up module names for entering search criteria in Module Report.
    Phone Number fields in QAD CSS are lengthened to allow for extension numbers.
    Invoice Date From/To and Order Date From/To fields are added as additional search criteria in Internal Invoice History Report.
    The PUK column name in Data Translation Report is changed to Primary Unique Key to be more intuitive.
    Currency format is improved in the product price fields.
    QAD CSS now retrieves active country data from the QAD ERP. Previously, country data was hard-coded in a number of modules.
    QAD CSS now retrieves currency data from the QAD ERP instead of having them hard-coded in some modules as they were previously.
    When creating customers, QAD CSS now uses the DefaultLangForB2CCust registry setting to set the customer default language code.
    You can now add multiple items to the shopping cart in Order Entry by clicking a new Add All Selected Items button.
    This release of QAD CSS is fully Unicode-compliant and supports multiple languages.
    QAD CSS can now indicate in the order entry process whether an item is an expensed memo type item. You can enable or disable this feature using the AlertMemo registry setting. Memo items have no effect on inventory or MRP when they are placed on an order.
    In the Address Setup page, QAD CSS now only displays countries marked as Active in Country Code Data Maintenance (2.14.1) in the QAD ERP for selection.
    QAD CSS now uses QXtend Inbound to communicate customer data to the QAD ERP.
