Slingshot Adds Version Tracking Features

Slingshot’s order management applications (Purchasing, Requisitioning and CRM) now allow any document (e.g. Purchase Order, Quotation or Acknowledgement) to be “versioned”.  Once flagged as versioned, the system automatically attaches a “snapshot” document (pdf file) to the order and increments a version identifier, whenever the document is forwarded to an external recipient (e.g. supplier or customer).  The new version can carry notes describing the changes made.  Internal copies of any version can be generated without incrementing the version identifier.

This new feature provides a simple and automated approach to tracking change order documents.  These “system generated” attachments cannot be removed, providing a permanent history which satisfies audit requirements.
