InterStaff has released Crescendo version 3.0.
InterStaff, a partner of Unit4 Business Solutions, provides Crescendo-BSPM, the amongst CODA-Financials users popular product for bank statement processing.
Crescendo version 3.0.xxx is a step towards the complete transformation of Crescendo into a .NET ClickOnce application.
A .NET ClickOnce application can be executed on a PC, without having to actually install the application on that PC.
Another important principle is that this version should offer “High Performance” batch processing.
In order to achieve this, it was necessary to completely redesign and develop the Crescendo architecture. In this process new and improved functionality became available, for example:
Improved performance thru:
- database optimization
- support for CODA version 10.101.xxx and later allowing overhead for old versions to be removed
- new architecture creates the possibility for parallel processing
Improved selector options:
- more data elements in CODA have become accessible
- information in “strange” tables have become accessible
- information in “strange” databases have become accessible
- and/or logic constructions are achievable
Logging transferred to database:
- information concerning process has been separated from information concerning data
- information integrally available and chronologically ordered
- information can be easily selected and presented to the user
- Unicode database support
- support for CODA XMLi
- CODA Callable Link no longer supported
Crescendo-BSPM version 3.0.xxx distinguishes 3 main components:
Within the Crescendo Server you will find all of the batch functions, like posting documents to CODA-Financials and matching. Although everything has technically changed, it all still functionally compares well to Crescendo version 2.6.xxx. There are some additions of new functionality
Crescendo (Classic) Desktop
The Crescendo Classic Desktop is still the familiar Desktop from version 2.6.xxx allowing the user to initiate various Crescendo en BSPM functions.
The applications that are found here in version 3.0.xxx will be redesigned as.NET ClickOnce applications in future releases of Crescendo-BSPM. The applications that serve to implement Bank Statement Processing can also be found on the Classic Desktop. Your Bank Statement Masters an Filter Rules that you implemented in version 2.6.xxx will, after some minor modifications, be reusable after an upgrade to Crescendo-BSPM version 3.0.xxx.
The Crescendo Portal is a .NET ClickOnce Application, the chosen technique en design will also be applied to the future redesign of Classic Desktop functions.
Incorporated into The Crescendo Portal are system management functions that have originated during the development of Crescendo version 3.0.xxx, for instance creating and maintaining Crescendo Jobs and managing the Job-Queue.
