Version 2008 highlights:

In addition to traditional "face-to-face" training, abas eLearning offers its
customers further training that can be completed anytime online. The eLearning
feature is especially advantageous for customers who've already partaken in the
traditional training, but now must learn additional functionality. Instead of having
to invest the time and money to travel to the training sessions, customers now can
learn new functionality online at their home location. At CeBIT, an exemplary abas
ERP sales order process will be demonstrated using the abas eTrainer.

International address formats
Developed for multinational companies, this feature records all foreign address
formats and maintains them in one location for use in various printing methods. The
new address formats are created in the countries, regions and economic areas
database. The layout of the address with several lines will then be created
automatically for the print applications from this object.

Service center
All data pertaining to a service order can now be accessed online by the service
technician with the new service center feature. This interface has been created in
the eBusiness solution abas eB and can be operated per touch pad or touch screen.
The online ordering of spare parts can be further accessed through a Webshop

Pricing and discounting now follow a new logic. Existing blanket orders are first
taken into account, followed by price and discount lists, and then the product
master file specifications. The price, price unit, trade unit, unit conversion
factors and discounts are adopted from existing blanket orders. Price and discount
scales can be created in a customer, product, quantity and date specific manner.
Additional pricing highlights include:
Setup prices, unit prices, group prices and discounts, as well as multiple
discounts can be specified.
Pricing can either be carried out for individual purchasing and sales items or for
previously specified product groups.
Flat rate prices can now be specified.
Gross and net prices can be created and recorded separately

Preliminary and final costing
A new infosystem enables the direct comparison between preliminary and final costing
results from work orders or work order suggestions, resulting in improved
controlling measures. Preliminary costing can also be directly carried out from the
screen for work order suggestions. This new simultaneous costing is based on posted
finished production completions, posted materials consumption and the special direct
costs of production and sales.

FOP programming with groovy
The programming language groovy has been integrated with Java for flexible interface
programming (FOP). This facilities quicker development with the same quality
