ASF launches NextReports 4.1


A new release of NextReports was published. Version 4.1 solves some bugs and brings new features.

Some designer new features are:

  • An SQLite driver and it's corresponding dialect were added.
  • More properties for charts like pattern property for y column tooltips, main font property, xaxis and yaxis color properties.
  • Also, this version allows to use hidden parameters inside other not-hidden parameters even if they are not used in the main query.
  • Inside the designer every empty cell is considered to be text, not null, this allowing for fast property settings on empty cells. Previously, you had to insert a new text element and then you could format the cell.
  • A history of all selected colors inside the designer is saved for reuse for the time the designer is not closed.

Collection Agencies Module was implemented in Capone Banking

Given the present economic environment, many companies try to optimize their collection strategies in an attempt to lower their operational costs. Working with collection agencies is an option used by organizations to complement the work of internal departments. As a result of these needs, we developed the Collection Agencies Module.

This new feature helps collection departments to easily manage the relationship with collection agencies and other third parties involved in the collection process. Now, you can control the process of sending the file batches flow and reduce the costs through process automation. Also, Collection Agencies Module keeps a historic view of client’s behavior for in-house collection and third parties.

Managing the cases sent to collection agencies or other external providers is possible by using a dedicated tool.

There are 4 different administration steps:

1. preselecting accounts in automatic or manual manner

2. creating case batches
