Release notes
Blue10

Our release notes provide an overview of all our new features and all the bugs we’ve fixed in Blue10. All updates are categorized per month, which makes it easy to access the correct information.

Please note: we update our software on a ring-based deployment. This means we’ve categorized our users into several groups, and we’ll update our software step-by-step according to those groups. As a result, it may take up to three days before any updates mentioned in the release notes will be available in your Blue10 environment.

Invoice Management – General 

  • Blue10 recognises multiple IBANs on an invoice
    With the IBAN check, Blue10 verifies if the recognised IBAN on the invoice matches the IBAN set up for the supplier in the accounting system. Want to know more? Read further here. The IBAN check has been optimised, and from now on, Blue10 also recognises multiple IBAN’s on an invoice.

    • When one of the recognised IBAN’s belongs to your company, that number will be ignored. If only one IBAN remains after this check, it will be suggested in the validation screen.
    • If multiple IBAN’s still remain, no specific IBAN will be suggested. Instead, we will display a drop-down menu with the various recognised IBANs for you to choose the correct IBAN. Additionally, it is always possible to enter an IBAN manually.

Invoice Management – Enterprise

  • Automatic Coding and Posting of Electronic Invoices (e-invoice template)
    With an e-invoice template, a purchase invoice is automatically posted in the ERP/Accounting system. For each supplier, a one-time link must be created between relevant booking data from the electronic purchase invoice and the financial master data synchronized from the accounting system. New product lines in a subsequent purchase invoice need to be linked once and will be automatically coded and posted in the administration from then on. Want to know more? Read further here.
