HLMSW Build 8.01 resolves a problem that has been plaguing all companies exporting packages into the European Union (especially post-Brexit). To avoid delays in customs clearance, exporters must include an Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI) with their shipments.
To assist HLMSW users in this process, the Delivery Address screen now includes a new Import/Tax Code section which you can use to store EORI numbers (and other mandatory delivery codes) quickly and easily.
The new options are available here:
If you have multiple accounts for the same delivery address, you can select a previously entered code by clicking on the icon to the right of the number (the Company Name, Postal Code and Country must be the same).
When sending, the value is displayed on the consignment screen here:
and the value can be printed on forms using the DIMPORT field of the Consignment table.
For B2B orders, EORI numbers will be included with your request, and changes to Zinfonia to ask your customers for this information will be available in the coming months.
This update also includes a new feature for multi-domain HLMSW systems where you can now use different email hosts for different companies.
As this is a major upgrade, please contact us to arrange installation.
