Come see us at the World of Concrete!

Be sure to stop by the GivenHansco booth (North Hall #757) while you’re at the World of Concrete in Las Vegas next week. Mike, Ron, Don, Mark, Craig and Brett will be demonstrating our latest products and previewing some exciting new features still in development.

Two of our newest modules available for Keystone Accounting include Document Imaging and Enhanced Financial Reporting.

Keystone Document Imaging lets you scan and save your documents using a world class image recognition engine from KOFAX. Your documents are then easily accessible through KEYSTONE. There is no switching between programs, and it’s easy to view, print, or email documents with just a click!

Keystone Enhanced Financial Reporting (EFR) allows you to create boardroom-quality, customized financial reports in Microsoft® Excel, quickly and accurately – with no re-keying! Keystone EFR delivers integration with F9, a powerful, easy-to-use financial reporting tool that dynamically links General Ledger data to Microsoft® Excel.

We’ll be previewing some exciting new products at the show as well, including a new streamlined batch panel, a Purchase Order module for Accounting and a web-based Management Information Dashboard.

The new Keystone batch panel has a more streamlined look and feel to it, while still keeping its simplicity and use of non-proprietary parts. The new design allows for users to decide if they want a physical manual panel or a soft (PC driven) manual panel.

The Keystone Purchase Order module allows entry and printing of Purchase Order forms and incoming product receipts. Receipts may be associated with a Purchase Order but do not need to be. Receipts are linked to an A/P Invoice during vouchering for automatic inventory and General Ledger updating.

Our upcoming web-based Management Information Dashboard is in the early stages of development. We’ll be previewing a very simple version and accepting ideas for information you’d like to see on the dashboard.

Keystone 2.5.1 is here!

Hot on the heels of our Version 2.5 release of Keystone Accounting & Dispatch, this version – consisting mainly of payroll year-end changes – does include a few significant new features:

  • A/P ACH Payments
    A/P Invoices may now be paid by electronic funds transfer (ACH). Note that this must be coordinated with your bank. (Contact GivenHansco if you are interested in this feature.)
  • Payroll to A/P Payments
    The Payroll module can now create an editable batch of A/P invoices for payments that are the result of employee deductions (i.e. child support, employee paid insurance, savings accounts.) (Contact GivenHansco if you are interested in this feature.)
  • News & Notifications
    When a user (who is connected to the Internet) logs in to Keystone, a new “Keystone News” window will appear next to the menu. This will contain the latest news & notifications about Keystone, including any critical updates that must be installed.

There are several other enhancements and corrections included in this update. Click here for the complete Release Notes for Keystone 2.5.1.

Keystone 2.5 is here!

The latest release of Keystone Accounting & Dispatch is now available. This version includes some significant new features:

  • Document Imaging
    Delivery Tickets may be scanned and linked to the corresponding Keystone ticket information and may be viewed in Ticket Maintenance and A/R Inquiry. (Contact GivenHansco if you are interested in this feature.)
  • F-9 (advanced financial reporting) Integration
    F-9 is an Excel-based advanced financial reporting tool that processes Keystone G/L transactions live and provides virtually unlimited control over the report format. (Contact GivenHansco if you are interested in this feature.)
  • QuickBooks Ticket Export
    For those customers with an existing QuickBooks installation, Keystone now has the ability to consolidate and export tickets from the Dispatch & Ticketing modules directly into QuickBooks 2002 and higher. (Contact GivenHansco if you are interested in this feature.)
  • Inventory Transfers
    Keystone now provides a simple option for transferring inventory between plants.

There are many other enhancements and corrections included as well. Click here for the complete Release Notes for Keystone 2.5.

One of the other significant improvements to Keystone has been behind the scenes. When Microsoft introduced Windows 7, they greatly improved the security of the operating system. To take advantage of this, Windows applications had to be modified and had to adhere to a strict set of guidelines. With the 2.5 release, Keystone is now fully Windows 7 compliant.
