Since version there is the program variant Winweigh Light. The further development of both variants is proceeding in parallel. Improvements may affect Winweigh Plus only, Winweigh Light only, or both. In order to keep the administrative effort for naming the improvements small but still maintain a complete overview of the novelties, a marking at the end of each novelty has been introduced:

[+/L] – concerns both variants
[+] – concerns Winweigh Plus only
[L] – concerns only Winweigh Light

This document describes the differences as of version

Search revised [+/L]
When searching via the quick search dialogs (QuickSearchDialog) or the search filters in the master data windows (F3 key), an asterisk (instead of the percent sign (%) is now used as a placeholder. The logic of the search has also been simplified. A search string is now interpreted as begin like or occur. Begin as means the match at the beginning of a searched term in the number of given characters. If, for example, the search term Falk is used to search for names in addresses, the addresses Falkner GmbH and Falk Erich will be found.When searching for occurrences, the search term must be preceded by an asterisk (*). In this form, the given string is searched in the entire field. For example, if you want to display all addresses that contain the term GmbH in the Name field, the search term is *GmbH. The result is: Estriche Kuninger GmbH, Falkner GmbH, Faltermeier GmbH, etc. The search is not case sensitive. The examples given here have been made with the data from the demo database.
Support of bitmaps in print templates (ReportBuilder) [+].
When creating documents, an image in bitmap format can be assigned to them. It is saved in the database or as an external file. When printing such a document, the image can be loaded and printed. Until now, only static bitmaps, i.e. images that were statically inserted at the time the artwork was designed, could be used. This functionality is usually applied on a job-by-job basis, because it is always the source of the bitmap (signature on a touch panel, photo from a digital camera, etc.) that determines the application form.
New form system Extra [+]
The introduction of the Extra form is a consistent further development of the program standard. It is designed to manage tables with numerical values. The number of values per record is limited to twelve. A record is identified by a unique identifier and a 50-character name. The number of records is unlimited. Using the standard customizing in the field settings, the formlar can be assigned the designations that the customer is accustomed to.
Swiss waste management: Monitoring according to VeVA replaces VVS [+].
In the Swiss waste management industry, the previous VVS system has been replaced by the so-called VeVA (Ordinance on the Transport of Waste). The main innovations are:

    • Adoption of the EU waste catalog, adapted with CH-specific changes
    • New waste category “other waste subject to control (ak)” (e.g. waste according to VREG list, waste wood, used tires, end-of-life vehicles, mixed scrap, used cooking oil, cables). These wastes may be transported domestically without a consignment bill.
    • New consignee permit and annual reporting requirement for “other waste subject to control.”
    • New accompanying certificate for domestic traffic. This can also be filled out online via the Internet and printed out locally (veva-online).
    • The notification of the received hazardous waste can be recorded online on the Internet or transmitted as a file via the Internet to the central computer (veva-online).
    • Nine-digit VeVA company number instead of the eight-digit VVS company number.
    • Publication of VeVA establishment numbers on the Internet (veva-online).
    • Publication of CH waste management companies on the Internet (veva-online).
    • The company numbers are issued by the cantons,
Extension of the order management [+]
Some new functions have been introduced in the handling of order management, which have resulted from experience gained through the use of Winweigh Plus by various customers. In detail, these are:

    • Specifying an Other Customer – In addition to the previous customers and carrier, a third date, an Other Customer, can now be specified for an order. Consequently, this date can also be specified as the invoice recipient.
    • Printing jobs – A job can be printed using a newly introduced button in the Job view. The appearance is determined by the new print template Pfister-Auftrag.rtm. Customer-specific print templates are of course also supported as part of the variable print management.
    • Support of temporary orders – If the internal organization of the company is such that the work at the scale is basically done only or mostly through orders, and at the time of an operation at the scale such an order does not yet exist, it is possible to help oneself through a so-called temporary order, without having to give up the usual document-to-order relationship. At the moment of initiating a new operation, for which an order is missing, the operator can enter the data on the document as far as they are known. In the order record, a document is marked as such via the newly introduced temporary order button (to the right of the order number). The program automatically assigns a temporary (negative) order number, creates it in the order management and assigns the document to it. The process can subsequently be completed as usual. The temporary order number will be replaced by a concrete one at a later stage in the order management. The reference to the generated document is automatically set correctly by the program.
New discounting [+/L]
The present version has been prepared for improved discounting on the part of the database and master data forms. The complete implementation, so that it is possible to work with it, will be realized in the next version due to time constraints.
New form of cashless payment ECash [+/L].
Winweigh now supports a so-called ECash function. This allows bank or credit cards to be accepted in the weighing operation for cash payments. The necessary technical equipment must be obtained from the provider of such services.
New client parameter “Preset VeVA site number” [+].
This parameter defines which abbreviation of the clods “Customer”, “Transporter” or “Other” should be used in the weighing mode to determine the VeVA site number from the customer master.
New plant parameter “Cash amount lower limit” [+/L].
Negative prices result from offsetting; i.e. a receivable is offset against a liability or vice versa. From a fund’s perspective, a negative amount is a withdrawal. Due to the possibility to settle negative prices as well, this parameter can be used to set the lower limit for an amount. A negative amount of -1000.00 means: withdrawals up to 1000.00 of the set main currency are allowed.
New system parameter “Cash payment-acceptance-allowed” [+/L].
This new parameter allows the limits set by the settings of the system parameters Manual correction cash amount-p and Manual correction cash amount to refuse to accept cash payments.
New client parameters “Discount rule” and “Discount mode” for extended discount calculation [+/L].
The new parameters serve to expand the discounting options. The discount rule (RVS) defines the discount data from the master data – related to the determined net price of a material – to be used for the application of the discount calculation. It is composed of a list of terms (e.g. construction site;customer;customer2;material), each separated by a semicolon (“;”). The way of discount calculation for the client is determined by the definition of the discount mode. Entries such as “priority”, “cumulative” or “RVS subtotal” then determine the calculation of the discount.
