  • Parcel tracking information can be recorded during billing. This is available for viewing throughout the invoicing process and from invoice history.
  • Order Entry requires RealWorld Accounts Receivable and can be interfaced with Inventory Control, General Ledger, IQ Report Writer and Sales Analysis. Order Entry can be used without Inventory Control by selling Accounts Receivable goods and services.
  • Your order entry can be much faster. Over 30 fields can be set to selected defaults. (During entry, you can still change selected fields or up arrow to them for occasional exceptions.) The line item entry screen shows seven lines and scrolls for faster data entry or review.
  • You can use standard bills from A/R (similar to kits on the fly) on orders, recurring orders, or quotes. Quotes can become orders or invoices.
  • During billing, you can select serial numbers or scan them. The same is true of parcel tracking numbers. Later inquiries on the order, invoice, or invoice history show serial and tracking numbers.
  • Parameter driven order confirmation and RMA forms can be printed immediately or in groups. There is an option to have the order number become the first invoice number on an order.

Purchase Order

RealWorld Purchase Order helps you order goods and services from vendors.

  • New and changed purchase orders can be easily entered and edited. The Change Purchase Order function allows line items to be added to posted purchase orders. An audit trail is provided for purchase order changes.
  • Vendor item data can be easily entered, edited and printed. Multiple vendors can be set up for any item, and marked as first, second, or third choice vendor for the item. You can also copy groups of items from one vendor to another or load items from Inventory Control into Purchase Order. The Vendor Item file has a conversion factor between ordering and stocking units.
  • A separate purchasing address file (shared with Accounts Payable) can be used to obtain the address for a purchase order. The vendor's address on the purchase order can be changed. Phone, fax, and e-mail address fields accommodate foreign numbers and extensions.
  • Receivings, with or without purchase orders, can be entered and edited. A Fast Enter function is provided for receivings. This allows an entire purchase order to be received without having to enter individual receivings for each line of the purchase order. An edit list and register can be printed.
  • Blanket purchase orders, shipments to multiple locations, incomplete shipments and over-shipments are handled. Programs inform you of incomplete shipments both on the screen and in reports. Unknown prices can be entered at a later time.
  • Inventory Control features such as serial numbers, component cost fields, and multiple aisle/tier/bins in a warehouse are supported.

RealWorld Payroll helps you maintain employee payroll information, handle voluntary deductions, calculate taxes, and print payroll checks.

  • Unlimited number of cash accounts can be used. Employees can be set up so that a group of employees can be paid from a specific cash account.

  • Up to 36 custom-built fields may be defined for both employer and employees.
  • Employees can be associated with more than one state or city for SUI, resident/non-resident taxes and handling of W-2s. Payroll handles employees who live in one city/state and work in another and/or work in more than one city/state during a pay period. The SUI reporting method can be computed based on home state or work state. Fixed earnings, 401k and fixed before-tax deductions are pro-rated across states and/or cities.
  • Multiple pay rates per employee handle shift differentials and employees with varying jobs and/or locations paying different rates within the same pay period. Each employee can have three default special pay rates entered on his or her employee record. A different workers compensation code can be assigned to each employee pay rate.
  • When entering payroll transactions, you can have up to 10 different pay rates per pay period or state. You can easily override any employee's special pay rate during transaction entry.

Supplemental earnings can be calculated as a percentage of gross pay. A total of 18 voluntary deductions or 15 earnings are available. A flexible deductions report allows reporting by deduction. You can show total deductions/earnings for a specified period and a specific deduction code.

  • Magnetic media reporting can be done for federal and state quarterly unemployment insurance reports and annual wage and tax reports.

System Manager (Required)

The System Manager provides a consistent interface with the RealWorld modules running on your computer system. The features described below are either in the System Manager or are system-wide (in each module).

  • Fast access to information is the principle behind the many advanced features available through the use of our windowing interface. You can access other menu items, even add information while working within a function and then return to the original function without disturbing your data. You can create Access Groups that allow you to associate commonly used functions for quick access. For example, when entering customer invoices, you can add new inventory items or verify payments from customers.
  • The optional use of passwords ensures the security of your accounting records. You can assign passwords to each user and specify each menu and sub-menu selection the user can access. You can change a password without having to re-enter access selections or copy access privileges from an existing password to a new password. Reports also have password protection and can only be printed by users with a password for that report.
  • You can use change logs to provide a record of changes made to non-financial information such as customer or vendor names or addresses. This informs you of the date of the change and the identity of the person who made the change.
  • Data Lookup allows you to scan previously entered data in more than 2,500 fields.
  • The System Manager contains the definition of the account number structure for each company. Segments can be defined for major cost centers, minor cost centers, main accounts, and sub-accounts. The System Manager has a list of General Ledger account numbers, and, if cost centers are used, the valid lists of cost centers that can be used by all modules.
  • Special functions assist in converting Chart of Account numbers from earlier versions of RealWorld software and other accounting packages. This feature also works for downsizing from mainframe to micro computer or for upgrading structures in growing businesses. You can also cross-reference your account numbers from earlier versions or an external source.
  • Complete audit trails are maintained for all financial information. Every distribution to General Ledger can be directly traced to its original entry, and each report is assigned a unique number and reference showing its source.
  • Innovative field-locking technology allows multiple users to access the same record simultaneously. This feature eliminates the problem of users being locked out of a needed record or file because it is being used by someone else.
  • Optional batch controls allow grouping of transactions into user-defined batches that can be used for entry, edit, selection, or post. Audit log shows posted batches and tracks transactions that impact the packages.
  • RealWorld software includes data integrity programs to verify the accuracy of the data on file.
  • Unlimited date/time stamped notes may be printed from many of our packages.
  • RealWorld software includes extensive backup, restore, and file integrity analysis functions.
  • Other software programs (such as Lotus and WordPerfect) can be defined as menu selections and run directly off the RealWorld pull-down menu.
  • The System Manager allows you to select either a multi-level menu or a pull-down menu bar from which you access other functions or packages.
  • Reports can be displayed, printed on the most popular printer models, or stored on disk. You can move forward and backward when displaying reports. All reports and forms can be printed on Hewlett-Packard and fully compatible laser printers. A separate directory is used for reports printed to disk. When you post and print, all registers can be saved to disk for a user-specified number of days to allow reprints. You can select to have reports automatically deleted after the number of days specified (a warning of pending deletion occurs).
  • The System Manager is required to run the other modules in the RealWorld Accounting and Business Software line.
  • Displayed reports can be scrolled back.
  • Existing notes are indicated on the screen.
  • Better pop up windows make codes available.
  • Registers can be printed and saved to disk.
