Review 2018

2018 Customer Day

Another successful WINPACCS Customer Day – 23 October 2018. The 2018 Customer Day focused on the launch of the new WINPACCS 2018. The new WINPACCS Cloud was showcased under the heading: “WINPACCS 2018 – the integrated software solution for development cooperation”.

Other interesting items on the agenda were the new functions and additional features, plus our schedule for the switchover. A particular highlight was thus the exciting testimonial on the successful, worldwide rollout of WINPACCS Project cashbook and WINPACCS Project accounting at Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), presented by Birgit Klose and Renate Vial.

As in past years, the participants appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and the chance to talk with other WINPACCS users and mbi staff at the event. 
The next WINPACCS Customer Day will be held in Wetzlar on 6th November 2019.

The new WINPACCS Project Controlling

Gain a first impression of the new WINPACCS Project controlling. The new components of the WINPACCS Cloud allow you to examine posted costs and income in your own or external projects directly on the screen, as well as create diverse analyses. Budgets can be integrated straight into overview tables and utilised for a wide range of calculations. The software also enables you to easily break down project costs and display them in tables on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.
