Ability to quickly access IQ/3 IQ/4 IQ5 from any entry screen
This enhancement allows you to type Q3, Q4 or Q5 during order entry, purchase order entry, stock transfer entry, quotation entry, or intercom message entry. Once the IQ screen is exited you are returned to your original starting point.
Tracking pre-payments, deposits, credits, etc.
VSS has developed a series of programs to track payments, prepayments, deposits, master releases, cash, credits, orders and adjustments as they relate to each order. As each transaction is entered or updated it is written into a file called PP-INDEX. This index then has all related payments, orders, master releases, credits and adjustments. The screen can be viewed in IQ/3 and IQ/8.
The program offers two options:
1=Posted transactions only, 2=Include open transactions
Unposted cash is shown with a type of UNPOSTED CASH. Unposted orders are shown either as ORDER or SHIPPED depending on their status.

Two related modifications are also available relating to prepayments.
1. Instant updating of cash when entered into IQ/8 cash screen. (prohibits employees from deleting cash records).
2. Sequential numbering of master releases. If the original order number is 1234, then the first “release” would be given a number of 1234.1…next would be 1234.2, etc. This simplifies tracking these orders.
