  1. Customizable POS interface

    It would be nice to have more of a customizable POS interface. Whether the customers can do it themselves through an editor or it can be done through a customization department at CMS. It should be easy and provide the availability for quick turnaround.

    • saving documents

      Is Denali going to have the feature of saving documents to a/r accounts and a/p accounts? i loved that in Cougar and think it should be implemented into Denali.

      • AP 1099 Default

        In AP vendor file it would be helpful if the default for 1099 was non-employee compensation instead the current default.

          • Feedback

            I find it frustrating that I cannot access your demo. I had been referred to you while doing a search on another site and have a call scheduled with a rep shortly. However, they sent the link to your site in advance of the call. When I looked on the site and saw "try our demo", I thought I'd actually get to try the demo...which I would have loved to have been able to do in advance of the call, so that I could ask questions about things specific to what I saw and how our organization operates. Since you…

              Thank you for your feedback!

              I am forwarding this to our marketing manager for review and possible re-wording.

              We are always trying to improve our communication with prospective customers. We chose the word “demo” because we do not offer an actual “trial” version of our software. Because Denali is highly customizable, we prefer to have a representative give an initial demonstration to help you get the most from your time evaluating the functionality.

              We realize this may not be as convenient, but as they say “time is money”, and we want to make your analysis and consideration of our software as quick, accurate, and complete as possible so you can make the right choice for your organization.

              Sincerely,
              Troy Kesner
              Product Development Coordinator

            • Upgraded to Denali Payroll Nov 14. Our MI unemployment tax calculated all wages, not just under $9,500. Need to adjust all taxes now.

              Tax error. Why did it calculate unemployment on total wages for payrolls after upgraded to Denali Payroll. Should have only calculate unemployment tax up to $9,500; which most employees already have reached. Now need to correct all postings in AP and GL.......no easy fix.

              • invoice date

                previous versions allow users to change invoice date - current version only use system date and does not allow to change invoice date. not a good idea for users who have not time to invoice everyday and invoice only in batches once or twice a month

                  • taxable and non taxable sales

                    many of our customers conduct both taxable and nontaxable purchases. When they do not tell you ahead of time, this creates a lot of extra work. Before Denali, this was no problem - just change the taxable status. It does not go so smoothly in Denali when each invoice must be tendered. Do away with the "Tendering" and just let us run straight AR. This will also eliminate all the sales types on the lower left of the invoices. Too much clutter.

                    • Sales-Qty Price Breaks

                      When you enter a Sales Order the sales price is pulled from the pricing table based on quantity. However, if you edit that sales order to change the quantity, the price is not adjusted according to the quantity. Please correct this.

                      • reconciling bank statements- Denali

                        When reconciling bank statements the horizontal scroll bar scrolls to the right every time you clear a transaction which makes it impossible to see the far left column while clearing the boxes. There are no columns past the cleared column so the scroll bar seems to be unnecessary.

                        • Sort employees alphabetically by LAST name is payroll batch.

                          When keying a batch into payroll, the employees are alphabetized by last name. If I have to leave the batch and then return to the batch, the employees are alphabetized by FIRST name.

                          • Gl-Journal Entry

                            Would like ability to delete or insert lines in a journal entry that was created by recurring. The Recurring JE is created using all possible accounts that could be affected by the transaction. But not all of the accounts are used every time the transaction is created from the recurring entry.

                                There are several videos on our www.cougarmtn.com website that demonstrate the features of Denali Payroll, and a CMS Professional vs Denali comparison video can be found at: http://payroll-software.cougarmtn.com/portfolio/denali-payroll-vs-cms-pro-video/

                                Denali Payroll has most of the same functions as CMS Professional, but if you would like an in-depth comparison of specific features, Call us at 800-388-3038 to arrange a short demonstration or a personalized training session.

                                We have used CMS Pro for over 10 years and have boxes of pre-printed checks. Denali no longer gives me an option to use those checks. I would like to be able to use the checks I have.

                                  In our latest Denali update (5.1) we offer a “Check-Stub-Stub” format, as well as the option to use a custom form. To get updated, contact our Technical Support at 800-390-7053.

                                  All Pre-Printed checks from our recent CMS Professional versions should be usable in Denali as well. The check print format can also modified for non-CMS pre-printed checks.

                                    We have put several pricing options and package pricing on our Cougarmtn.com website. We have also added the capability to purchase custom formatted reports through our E-Commerce website!

                                    Cougar Mountain is a modular solution, with many different pricing options. Our sales representatives are happy to explain the pricing options for prospective and current customers.

                                  • AP, AR, GL Reports all take too much paper and are spread out too much for each entry.

                                    There is not a good reason that I can determine that extra lines are added between each entry. The reports use a lot more paper (& ink) than they used to.

                                      We always try to accommodate our customer needs when creating report formats. Some customers desire as much information as possible, while others only want minimal details. That is why we have condensed and summary versions of many reports in the report parameters.

                                      If a summary or condensed format does not work for your organization, we also offer Crystal report customization services, so that you can get the reports exactly as you want them. If you would like more details, please call your Account Representative, and they can offer some options.

                                        Unfortunately, no further changes are currently planned for CMS Professional.

                                        All future development efforts and enhancements are planned to continue in CMS Denali. This ensures that our software is compatible with new and future equipment standards. Be sure to contact a CMS Sales Representative for more details!

                                        Denail Improvement- Record Date Posted in the transaction file for Denali like it was in CMS Pro

                                        This was a feature contained in CMS Pro but was dropped when Denali replaced CMS Pro because of End of Life. This is a critical component for analyzing accounts that change constantly.

                                          Thank you for the idea. We recently completed this and as of Denali 8.2, the general ledger does keep track of the date posted going forward. It is also a field that you can add to your GL audit trail report and your reprint posting report. Both can be done through Crystal Reports. If you’d like to talk to someone about adding this field to your reports call 1-800-390-7053.
