Credit to the SMEs, measures extended to the 30th of June

15 April 2013 by vsalaris


On the 20th of March, the Italian Banking Association, throughout a press release, announced the extension to the 30th of June 2013 of the so-called "New credit measures for the SMEs".

edited by the Marketing Department

The validity period applied to the series of initiatives planned in order to provide support to businesses facing difficulties, promoted and developed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Ministry of Economic Development, in cooperation with the Italian Banking Association (ABI) and all the associations representing the entrepreneurial environment, has been delayed for a period of three months.

According to ABI, the measure (presented and enacted back in 2012) wishes  to "provide adequate financial resources to those businesses that, also if experiencing tension, present positive financial projections’. The measure is applied according to three types of actions in favour SMEs operating in all industrial sectors, provided that the companies are not facing “payment problems”  at the time of application submission. The measures grant to the banks the possibility to suspend loans and leasing, extend the loans period, bank advances and deadlines regarding the agricultural credit, as well as providing funding associated to increases in equity of the SMEs.

As for the suspension of the loans repayment, we are dealing with operations involving a 12-month suspension of the share capital of the loan instalments and a 12 or 6 months suspension of the share capital expected in the "real estate" and "Security" leasing , provided that the instalments are not overdue by more than 90 days and that loans and leases in question have not already taken advantage of the suspension issued in the common Notice on the 3rd of August 2009.

Extending the duration of the loans is now also possible. The expiry date of the short-term credit, regarding the advance of certain receivables and overdue credit, may in fact be postponed for up to 270 days in light of cash needs, while the maturities of the agricultural credit conduction provide an extension up to a maximum of 120 days. The loans suspended at the end of the interruption period are also admitted to the extension of the mortgages terms. Having said this however, remember that you can request an extension only for mortgages that have not already benefited from similar facilitationa (as per agreement for credit to SMEs on 16 February 2011).

The steps to promote the upturn and development of the activities are instead related to increases in its own equity firm. Even in light of the fiscal exemptions provided by the act DL December 6, 2011 n. 201, for companies that commenced processes in order to strengthen their corporate equity, the banks are committed in providing funding proportional to the increase of their own firm equity.

This important extension was decided in light of the critical situation the country is facing economically and for the coming into being of new initiatives in support of the SMEs. Banks and businesses are working in order to define a new agreement, possibly compatible with the evolving situation and the operating conditions of the credit institutions. In particular, certain issues, these being relevant to the development of the country, may be included in the new agreement, such as the mitigation of the impacts of Basel 3, the reinforcement of the Guarantees Fund for the SMEs and the development of business networks. The government in turn has moved in recent days by launching the act which immediately gives way to the settlement of the overdue payments to companies on behalf of the Public Administration. Over 40 billion Euros have been unblocked, useful for the payment of the debts of the Public Administration between 2013 and 2014. In parallel, the path outlined by the Government shall determine the compensation mechanism, by which companies can begin to balance out the amounts due to the tax agency through the Public Administration credits.

The need to exploit these benefits may depend on an obvious difficulty in collecting dues and make payments. The current economic circumstances characterising the national economy caused serious problems to those companies that find themselves in facing complex  repayment schedules of the credit granted to their customers, this causing negative impact on its creditworthiness in regards of mortgages and leasing. Besides benefiting from the support guaranteed by the credit measures, SMEs nowadays need to run fewer risks, managing efficiently and on time the credit granted to the customers.

The Mago.net Credit Limit Management module is the solution able to control the carrying out of orders based on their own needs, a reliable tool able to analyse the client situation and perform an efficient monitoring activity.

An efficient management for the health and social welfare facilities

12 April 2013 by vsalaris


The vertical solution GSA, made by Columbus Informatica, addresses all needs typically belonging to those facilities dealing with social welfare and assistance.

Edited by the Marketing Department

Gestione Servizi Assistenziali (GSA), the vertical solution for Mago.net developed by the Platinum Microarea Partner Columbus Informatica, suits all of those companies operating in the social welfare and assistance sector.

The Columbus Informatica vertical solution has been designed in order to easily create the accounting-administrative documentation connected to the clients belonging to the social welfare facilities: local healthcare authorities, regional organisations, private bodies, consortiums, and institutions operating in the healthcare sector.

Thanks to the invoicing process, GSA allows calculating the ASL (Local Healthcare Authority) advanced payments for a period of time and to distinguish between the amounts that shall be ascribed to the ASL from those that shall be ascribed to the families or covered by third parties according to the I.S.E.E. income. Throughout the Columbus Informatica vertical solution you can account for, and print, the ASL and Institution  fees, generating also the financial statements connected directly to the administration functions concerning the attendance of the patients. Thanks to these practical tools, the company will no longer need to fill out the attendance list of the patients, nor solve problems connected to the general or specific report of each and every ASL or social health welfare institution. The accounting process will take place in no time.

Throughout the masters of the patients and special agreements management, the monthly report generation of the due amounts relating to the supply of the services turns out to be simple, fast and intuitive. The integration with Mago.net allows accessing the masters of the patients, healthcare centres where the actual therapy takes place, reports regarding the administrative relationship with the ASL and local institutions, various patient treatments, and monitor the daily attendance.

The integration with the Mago.net EasyAttachment module functions allows keeping within reach the incoming hard-copy documentation, fully available thanks to one click from your mouse.

by Fabrizio Perricone
Product Marketing Manager

Filling out documents in electronic format, instead of paper, means avoiding waste. We have already discussed at length the benefits for businesses and the environment arising from the document automatic filing.

We know already that Mago.net offers a fully integrated system able to store any type of file whether connecting the latter, or not, to the management documents: we are obviously talking about EasyAttachment.

The Mago.net document filing system is easy to use, integrated and reliable ... what else? Perfection would be if the stored documents in electronic format had also legal value.

A rich Service Pack 2 for Mago.net 3.9: looks more like a release!

8 April 2013 by fperricone


Over 30 new features in Mago.net 3.9.2: a true record for a Service Pack.
Article 62, WMS, electronic document storing: these are the chief aspects regarding this subject. Download now from the Product Download area. 

by Fabrizio Perricone
Product Marketing Manager

The Service Pack 2 is rich of new features: over 30 new aspects able to improve your company efficiency from all points of view.

Article 62 found within Law 27/2012 has had a great impact of the food and agricultural industry. Microarea promptly updated Mago.net in such a way as to ensure the necessary functional operations. In the SP2 for Mago.net 3.9 the integrated controlling has been introduced within the sales documents entering procedure, this in order to help the operator control the perishability of the products entered within the document. Still speaking of Article 62, in the payment conditions a new deadline has been introduced ("end of month following invoice date") allowing to manage with greater precision the expiry dates connected to the sales documents for the food products.

The data regarding the CONAI and ABI/CAB of the Italian banks has been updated.

Microarea doesn't simply adjust Mago.net to the constantly changing legislation. Microarea foresees and prepares Mago.net to the upcoming legislative modifications issued by the Tax Agency, an example being the "Spesometro 2013". The Tax Agency has not yet officially announced which information shall be included within the new declaration. The deadline for the presentation of the 2012 data is set to be the 30th of April 2013. Having said this, the Tax Agency itself declared that there will be a shift in the schedule, also if the new deadline has not been confirmed yet.
Microarea moves ahead and issues the update for the Spesometro (Tax Communication) developed according to the draft versions so far provided. Should there be differences with the official specifications provided by the Tax Agency, the Spesometro for Mago.net will once again be promptly updated. Also Hungary issued its own Spesometro: the functional localization is available in a new report that allows visualizing all the data that shall be communicated. Again on a fiscal, for Hungary a report is now available able to manage the invoices declaration received from the small entrepreneurs and artisans.

Important new features also within the Warehouse Management System. The SP2 brings along 15 new features concerning the WMS Mobile (handheld devices). The countless new aspects are also the result of an ongoing collaboration existing between Microarea, Partners and End Users: every "wish" expressed by the End Users is analyzed closely and, if reasonable, implemented into Mago.net. Let us make a few examples: the handheld devices now allow visualizing the details of the content and the maximum quantity manageable from the specific warehouse unit. During the receipt process you can now track a higher level of items in comparison to the ordered quantity while keeping the connection to the order (instead of creating a new line without the order indication), this being useful in order to maintain full precision between the documents.

The unlimited openness, inter-operability and integration of Mago.net with external environments is proved by a new outstanding function called MA-HyperCall. This technology allows creating a link to a document or report belonging to Mago.net. Generally you can find, within a website or an email, this type of link http://www.microarea.it, and this today allows creating a link to ERP items. Just imagine, for a second, sending an e-mail to a colleague of yours, where in between the text lines you can enter a link to the sales order on which you are debating. Your colleague can see all the details regarding the order within his Mago.net thanks to one simple click! This function allows generating link to any type of report (pre-setting also all the requested data in input). Try it out now!

The electronic archiving of the documents is a very popular subject nowadays among the Mago.net End Users. The module EasyAttachment allows archiving in Mago.net any type of document in electronic format. The SP2 carries along a new function allowing more individuals to manage the documents: the check-in and check-out of the files. Such function ensures full coherence of the electronic documents hence avoiding simultaneous harmful modifications by different End Users. Furthermore, thanks to the "Undo" function, you can now restore the document copy before being "hit" by the undesired modifications.

The electronic archiving of the documents allows saving money, space and time. Last, but not least, the electronic storage of the documents needs to provide legal value to the not printed documents. The so called "archiviazione sostitutiva" (substitutive storage) is a legal/it term regulated by the Italian law providing, as previously said, legal value to electronic documents. The Mago.net Service Pack 2 makes available the integration to the substitutive storage service made available by the Zucchetti Datacenter. Thanks to the Mago.net module called SOSConnector your closets will be finally paper free because your documents will all be in electronic format! We will soon give you further information regarding the SOSConnector in a new article.

There is only one thing left to do: download the Service Pack 2 for Mago.net 3.9 and get in touch with your Microarea reseller in order to upgrade.

Please remember that the download is available exclusively to those of you who are covered by the Microarea Live Update service. If your MLU has expired but you want to upgrade your Mago.net to the most recent version all you need to do is get in touch with the Microarea International Sales Department to find out the advantaged and benefits in being always updated!
