In this process, the web-based magnet™ convinced with its high technological standard (SQL-DB etc.), modular pricing concept, scalability and user-friendliness, among other things. For this reason, CLX recommended softcash ag’s magnet™ for the replacement of OfficeWings.

For some time now, AutoDownload has been used to automatically download bank files (MT94x, camt.05x files, e-documents) and FX rates. With Rel. 20.1.0.0, magnet™ also received Robotic Process Automation (RPA). New jobs are now constantly being developed for the so-called ServiceAgent, e.g. PAYMENT. With this, mass payment files (supplier and/or wage files) can be uploaded to magnet™ fully automatically and within fractions of a second after being saved in the ERP. Internal fraudsters and external hackers no longer have a chance to manipulate such a payment file.
Other jobs are DEBTOR for uploading OP lists, etc.
