CounterAct is one of the most user-friendly software systems available in the market today.

Improvements have also been made to the product search and extract features. The distributed feature in CounterAct, that allows customer orders to be split over different orders and branches, has also been upgraded.
Other enhancements to CounterAct include the addition of two new statuses for customer orders – ‘Newly Available Today’ and ‘New /Goods Unavailable’, these will help users to focus on actions that may be required to meet order requirements.
