Today we have released new versions for all our products for master data verification right away. The reason for this is the two new functions that we have implemented for all products.
Create sample files
Due to several requests on how to build an import file, we have created the possibility to generate a sample file for all formats (CSV, JSON and XLSX). This contains the correct structure and can be used as a basis for the import.
These are available for selection via the Extras – Sample files menu. Just select the location and the file will be created.
Installation without administration rights
The lack of authorization when installing our application should not be a reason for not being able to use the software. We have therefore changed our installation routine to allow you to install our software products in your user context without needing administration rights. We hope that this will allow us to help not only one, but several customers (and those who would like to become one) to provide support in checking master data.
The just released version 2022.03.26 of our EORI-Validation has not only got an improvement in the program interface. Rather, this update fixes a runtime error that caused not every check to run successfully due to a change in the interface.
User interface modification
After separating ID Validation into individual applications, we have now slowly started to work on the applications visually as well. To avoid misunderstandings in the operation, we have arranged some elements of the interface differently. Also some additional information has now been organized differently so that it is easier to understand.
Runtime error fixed
Due to the change in the EOS interface for the EORI-Validation, runtime errors occurred frequently in the last few days. We have now revised the processing of the feedback and stabilized it as far as possible. Therefore, we strongly recommend to update to the latest version.
The version of our VAT-Validation released today corrects a bug in the processing of special characters. If certain characters were returned, such as a single apostrophe, it could cause the processing to be aborted under certain conditions.
This termination could result in an audit being incorrectly evaluated as negative. This resulted in a VAT ID number being returned as invalid. In some cases, processing was also aborted completely.
We would only be able to reproduce the behavior in the VIES interface (the BZSt interface is not affected) and here, interestingly enough, not even in every test run.
Nevertheless, we have changed the complete processing of special characters within the data of companies (company name, street, etc.).
If you find that you have records that are incorrectly returned as invalid, but they are returned as valid in the online offerings of the respective institutions, please send us that record.
We are very happy about the version 1.9.5 of our AWS Manager released today. First, we now have a Dark Mode to improve the look and feel of the AWS Manager. You can activate or deactivate this via the settings. In addition, we have made some tweaks to the UI to allow more AWS resources to be displayed in the view.
In addition, we would like to draw your attention to our new AWS Manager page. We are still interested in receiving your feedback to make our tool even better. For this purpose, we have created the page for collecting your suggestions.
Please take a few minutes to let us know what service or resource you are missing from AWS in our AWS Manager.
What’s next for the AWS Manager?
Well, we are very happy to answer this question:
AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)
AWS Trusted Advisor
Support for multiple AWS accounts
Whether exactly in this or another order remains to be seen.
Please also support us by sharing AWS Manager with your friends, colleagues and acquaintances. It doesn’t always have to be a donation or a link on your blog.
Finally, we were able to complete the performance overhaul of our Duplicate Check.
As the number of records to be checked increased, so did the desire to continue optimizing performance. Until now, the solution was always the same: “Please check whether a virus scanner is affecting the process. Please add the duplicate check to the list of exceptions”.
However, this could not be done by every customer, nor was it an actual solution.
Now we have completed the revision and were able to reduce the duration of the test by 84%. If 100,000 records previously took about 12 minutes, they are now processed in just under 2 minutes.
With the release of the latest version we have also changed something in the trial version. All checks are now fully available. However, the duplicate check only processes the first 100 records without a valid license. This should be sufficient for a first impression.
Many thanks to our customers and prospects who have given us feedback in the past about our duplicate check.
Duplicate Check 2022.01.25
Massive performance improvements for more than 100,000 data sets
All checks are now free for the first 100 records in the trial version for better testing.
The case-sensitive XLSX and CSV (when column headers are used) now only recognizes lowercase letters.
A workaround for the bug is to write the headings completely in lowercase, as described in the respective documentation. We are working on fixing the problem and will gradually release the corrected versions starting tomorrow.
An error in the background processing was reported to us. After a thorough check, we unfortunately found an error in the logic during import. This led to the fact that the files were not recognized and thus could not be processed.
Please update your installed version to ensure that background processing continues to work without errors.
We welcome any feedback you may have. Only in this way can we make our software even better and optimally support you in checking your master data.
