For example, let:
OverviewWings helps you set up an authorization process for some or all transactions.
For example: when an expense entered by a user crosses a limit and needs to be authorized by the CFO. Or, when a leave application needs to be authorized by a manager
Transaction Authorisation ensures this is done online. Data remains un-posted till authorisation. Transaction Authorisation is an invaluable tool to help many people work on the same system real-time.
Your business processes may require some transactions done by one person to be authorized by another, often a superior. To enable you to do business on the software and not merely enter data later, Wings offers a powerful Transaction Authorization system, which helps you to set:
For example, you may want to restrict a purchase order of more than a given amount, done by a user, only after authorized to do so by a superior. The approval levels can be by branch, transactions and users. Transaction Authorization can also be Simple or Conditional.
Simple Authorization enables you to apply basic approvals for transactions, irrespective of other criteria. Thus, you may specify that every cash payment by a particular user must be authorized by another user. If so, the transactions shall remain pending till approved.
Conditional Authorization enables you to apply approvals for transactions based on certain criteria. You can:
Set approvals for any transaction, transaction tab or any column within the transaction
Use operators such as etc. to apply authorizations based on conditions
Set conditional values for transaction fields/columns
Apply approval levels and sequences i.e. hierarchy of people who authorise the entries
You may specify conditions for transaction fields or columns such as rate, quantity, total invoice value, total cheque amount issued, etc. For instance, you may specify a condition on total sales quantity in a ‘Sales Invoice’.
Transactions for Approval
Whenever a user logs in who is required to authorize transactions done by another person, his system will show a list of transactions pending his approval. He can view the transactions online and approve or reject any transaction. All authorisation is done online.
All data shall remain un-posted till authorized by the authorizing user.
Wings offers reports giving lists of transactions authorized and pending authorization.
Transaction Authorization is optional. You may choose to disable it and not use it.
OverviewWhen you need to know the outstanding orders of a customer while making deliveries or outstanding receivables while making collections, Wings helps. It maintains a live link between sequential transactions. Pending transactions are shown in subsequent transaction screens for selection – resulting in increased usability, efficiency and fewer errors.
Linked Transactions ensure complete integrity between various functions in your organisation which are managed by different people and helps reduce errors dramatically.
Wings maintains a live link between all sequential transactions and keeps them tightly attached. Data relating to a prior transaction is carried forward and offered in a subsequent transaction for instant use.
Linked Transactions helps in increasing efficiency in data entry and reduces errors.
Sequential Transactions are those which happen one after another. For example, the purchases flow generally consists of Indents, Requisitions, Orders, Material Receipts, Invoices and Payments.
Similarly, sequential transactions exist in all functions covered by the software. Thus, offering you a flow-based and correct method of data entry.
Data Carried Forward
When you choose to use Linked Transactions, Wings carries forward relevant ‘pending’ data from a transaction to a subsequent transaction. For example, all pending orders for a customer are carried forward and displayed in the Deliveries transaction screen for the said customer. When you select one or more of the pending orders, the relevant data is filled up in the Deliveries screen instantly. This allows for instant offsetting.
In other words, you may set-off balances in the succeeding transactions such as, stock to be delivered, collections to be received, payments to be made, etc. fully or partially. Wings automatically stores and displays the balance information whenever you want to make the set-off in future.
You may select only those transactions from the pending list offered which you wish to set-off at the time of data entry.
Wings automatically locks the preceding data once used in any succeeding transactions. Thus, once a transaction is set-off against a subsequent transaction, the prior transaction cannot be edited. This is essential to maintain integrity of the data.
For instance, a sales order cannot be removed if set off in deliveries.
View Transaction Links
Wings offers Voucher Links to help you view all succeeding and preceding links for data entered in each transaction. This helps you get details of linked transactions which have been used by you for set-off.
Pending information in transactions is displayed based on several parameters such as, branch, currency, location, segments, date, party, etc. You may also set the parameters of your choice. This helps you to see only those pendings info which is relevant for you.
Linked Transactions is an optional feature. You may not want to use carried forward data. To give you a choice, Wings offers two kinds of transactions – one which are linked to prior transactions and one which are not. Thus, you will find ‘Sales Invoice Against Deliveries’ and ‘Sales Invoice’, in the menu. If you choose ‘Sales Invoice’, Wings will not offer you data relating to pending deliveries and you may just enter and create an invoice.
You may not want to use Linked Transactions, for example, if you wish to have the flexibility of editing prior transactions.
Accounting Alerts happen when you try to execute a transaction leading to customer balance or credit limits exceeding pre-set amounts.
Inventory Alerts happen when you try to execute transactions leading to negative stock etc.
Set Alerts for events such as, stock going beyond reorder level, customer or supplier exceeding limits, batch expiry, visa or passport expiry, etc. Wings will prompt you warnings and messages automatically at the time of data entry.
User Defined Alerts
Change pre-defined Alerts, Warnings and messages to your choice. Set your own text for the messages for display to users. You may also configure messages for each user.
You may wish to proceed with the data entry by ignoring certain alert messages. Wings helps you to set overriding options for alerts, for events within the software.
Grant permissions to override alerts. On enabling this, users can proceed with the data entry though the messages are prompted. For example, saving of sales invoice with negative stocks.
Restrict users not to save data by blocking transactions. This will prompt the user and restricts them to save transactions. For instance, a sales invoice should not be saved if the customer limit exceeds.
You may also set such options for each user.
Wings allows you to allocate an entire entry or some data of the transaction to only those segments which you wish to. For instance, you may allocate expenses related to each department or cost centre, incomes generated by branches, stocks delivered from each location, etc.
At the time of data entry, you can set the segments you wish to allocate the entire transaction data to. Wings automatically copies the segment you select to every line of every tab. Or, you may also manually select segments in desired tabs, to make separate allocations.
Segments for Pending Data
You can use locations, etc. for material orders, deliveries, invoices, collections etc. Wings stores and offers you pending data for set-off in future with the parameters you select. For instance, you may enter sales orders raised at a specific branch, stock to be delivered based on branch and location, etc.
Or, you can set-off only those pending information which are based on the combination of segments at the time of data entry.
Wings provides in depth analysis of your data with the help of segmental reporting. You can take any report based on any combination of segments such as sales by profit center, Location wise stock availability, Project wise expense statement, Location wise stock movement, etc.
You may enable/ disable any segment within any module whenever you need with the help of Settings. Wings will hide all related fields within all the transactions and reports.

You can maintain prefix, suffix and symbols for currencies. You may include these properties to print in documents, vouchers, invoices, etc.
Wings allows you to maintain any number of exchange rates for your currencies. You may set rates with ‘with effect from’ dates, to keep recording changes in exchange rates. The effective rate is automatically applied in transactions, based on the date.
Wings automatically processes the currency rate differences based on the rates assigned for each currency and effective dates, and allows you to post such fluctuations to exchange fluctuation accounts. You may know whether the difference in currency rates is a loss or gain before for fluctuations.

You may attach pictures or images with various kinds of masters and use them. For example, you may attach the picture of a product to the product master, of an employee to the employee master etc. These can be used while entering transactions, printing invoices, pay slips, employee id cards, product placards, price tags etc. A very useful feature.
