Adding new functions, enhancing existing features while simultaneously replacing dated processes with easy alternatives makes Scope faster and more effective. The latest release brings comprehensive features for our Mexican customers. All freshly packed and ready to serve, Scope users can enjoy improved shipment processing and cross-frontier customs declarations.
The filter for the shipment monitor has been improved. "Earliest / Actual Exception Time" is now available as a criterion.
Transport Orders – Button instead of action links
Instead of several action links, there is now one dedicated button which opens a selection list for the user to choose from. Additionally, the descriptions have been extended to explain each option more clearly.
Simple Shipments – Entry of Simple Shipments 'Road'
For Simple Shipments the entry for Road shipments has been enhanced. It is now possible to select a Buying Product in the shipment. Buying products need to be maintained in the corresponding partner data.
Air Freight – Validation in the FWB Address
Formerly only available in the AWB editor, the validation of the character entry (no more than 35 characters) is now available in the e-AWB (FWB) Address dialogue. If the address entered is too long, the user will be notified by a validation message.
Sea Freight – Enhancement of Container Delivery Order
There are now three different conveyance types available for a container delivery order. The user can choose between Road, Rail and Barge.
Sea Freight Tariff Import – Additional field available
The new additional field “Conveyance Type” has been added to the import function. These values will be allowed: Air, Rail, Road, Barge and Express.

Features for Mexico
Mexican Tax logic
Customers in Mexico now have the possibility in export and import shipments to mark the loading type as 'taxable' via check-box. This is implemented to comply with Mexican tax rules and prevents creation of a voucher if the partner has no valid tax ID.
There will be an automatic download from the Bank of Mexico of the Mexican Peso (MXN) exchange rate for the following currencies: USD, CAN, JPY, EUR, GBP.
An XML generation for outgoing invoices has been integrated within Scope (legally required in Mexico since 2016). The XML is named 'CDFI'. Scope supports both the actual version 3.2 as well as the next version 3.3 (as of July 2017).
Electronic seal for outgoing invoices
In Mexico, outgoing invoices must be (electronically) sealed by the tax authorities. Riege Software is currently developing a dedicated interface. Scope can now transmit and seal Mexican CFDI files, both in 3.2 and 3.3 format, as well as generate a valid Mexican pdf invoice.
