Logitude Release Notes – November 2014

1. Introduction

Logitude World provides the first true online freight forwarding software solution. It combines the power of cloud computing and modern technologies with a deep understanding of the freight forwarding industry.Since Logitude’s SaaS solution is rich in software modules, Release Notes are regularly issued to update about new features and enhancements as well as changes that were made since the previous release.

This version of the Release Notes introduces new features and functionalities and describes existing features that were enhanced.

2. New Features

2.1 Consolidated Invoice – available in Business Package only

Upon customer’s requests, we have a new process called the Consolidated Invoice.
This new feature allows issuing one single Invoice for one customer over a certain number of daysregardless of the number of shipments providing the benefits of reducing the time, paper, and costsrequired for individual shipment invoicing.
When creating a new AR invoice, you will have the option to choose if it is a regular invoice or if it is a constituent. You can define if the customer works with Consolidated Invoice (Billing tab). In this case, the system will suggest to issue a Constituent Invoice for each Shipment and not an Invoice. A new query in the Accounting tab is available for all open constituent invoices called “Open Constituent”. In Accounting Transfer, Constituents are not transferable while the Consolidated are.
More details can be found in Getting Started -> “How to” section.
