ISO 27001:2013 Security Certification
We are happy to share that SapphireOne has been re-certified, valid until March 2024, for ISO 27001:2013. The re-certification is aligned with our previous ISO 27001 certification in 2018.
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard for security information that sets global requirements for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). The ISO standard, updated in 2013 and currently referred to as ISO/IEC 27001:2013, is considered the benchmark to maintaining customer and stakeholder confidentiality.
The ISO 27001 standard requires a systematic examination of security risks, threats, vulnerabilities and their impact. SapphireOne has achieved the certification process by demonstrating that a comprehensive system of information security controls and management processes have been implemented. These processes ensure that information security controls continue to meet the organisation’s requirements on an ongoing basis.
Certification to ISO 27001 Information Security Standards provides SapphireOne clients and vendors with an independent endorsement that our commitment to protecting crucial information security meets international standards and best practices.

SapphireOne’s Drag and Drop feature eliminates manual data entry and creates complex sales orders within minutes.
March 24, 2021 4:00 pm | by John Adams
Use SapphireOne’s Drag and Drop feature to simplify data entry processes and import data instantaneously.
SapphireOne’s Drag and Drop feature is a game changer when it comes to streamlining data entry processes and an incredibly useful tool for reducing errors and time spent manually entering complex data.
The Drag and Drop feature is available to use across all SapphireOne Inventory Sales & Inventory Purchases Data Entry screens and gives you the ability to complete data entry in a matter of minutes.
Read on to learn exactly how to use this feature and the benefits it will bring to your business.
Easily import an unlimited number of line items and SKUs straight to your data entry screen.
At SapphireOne many of our clients are processing large sales orders consisting of over 100,000 inventory items, 800 line items and large order quantities, which can make data entry incredibly time consuming and confusing for employees.
Using the Drag and Drop feature, SapphireOne users can now eliminate manual data entry and make use of the feature to import and populate an unlimited number of line items and SKUs directly from their excel file into the SapphireOne system.
To use the Drag and Drop feature, simply follow the below four steps:
Step 1. Upon opening your selected data entry screen within SapphireOne, navigate your way to the bottom right hand corner of the screen where you will see two green icons.
Step 2. Select the left ‘toggle’ icon, and then select ‘Import Lines’ to choose the populated excel document you would like to import, or simply drag the excel document into the bottom Transaction Lines area of the data entry screen.
It is important to note that all excel docs must be saved as a csv file before importing.
Edit and organise your data before importing.
Step 3. Once you have selected your chosen excel document, you will be automatically shown the above pop-up screen which gives you the ability to easily edit and organise your data. Right click on the top heading columns to select the corresponding heading name that relates to your data.
As an example, this feature is perfect for creating Client Sales Orders and Purchase Vendor Invoices as it gives you the option to send an excel template to your all customers and vendors for them to populate with their orders. This excel document then be imported directly to your Client Sales Order or Purchase Vendor Invoice data entry screen within SapphireOne for instant processing.
All headings within every SapphireOne data entry screen are also fully customisable, and you can select from a range of heading options to meet your specific business requirements. In the above image we have selected Inventory SKU, Description, Rate and Quantity as an example.
Step 4. Once you have chosen your headings, select ‘Import’.
Simple, efficient and customisable data entry.
As you can see in the above screenshot, the Transaction Lines area of the screen have now been instantaneously populated with the data from the excel document.
This feature also works in reverse giving you the ability to export all data from any SapphireOne data entry screen to excel.
Whether you are importing a small amount of data or an order of 100,000 inventory items, SapphireOne’s Drag & Drop feature will function in the same simple and time efficient way and dramatically streamline data entry processes for your business.

Creating an Accounts Receivables Balances Report in SapphireOne.
SapphireOne has a variety of Accounts Receivables reports available, each allowing you to report dynamically on client data for many different purposes. The aim of the Account Receivables Report tutorials is to take you through each of the six reports so you can stay informed and up-to-date on SapphireOne reporting functionalities.
SapphireOne has six different types of Accounts Receivables reporting options, these include:
- Show Reports
In our previous post we looked at when and how to create the Client Details Report. In this post we will be looking in more detail at the second Accounts Receivables reporting option, the Balances Report.
The Balances Report.
The Client Balances Report gives you the ability to create and print a Credit Information report on Clients who currently have outstanding balances, giving you an overview of exactly which Clients owe money.
When selecting the Balances Report, you are presented with a print dialog pop-up enabling the selection of items required in the report:
This reporting function gives you the ability to choose from 20 different report types to best suit your specific reporting requirements. Below is an overview of each Report Type, and what each type can be used for:
- Standard Balances – This report shows the Standard Aged Balances.
- Un-posted Values – This report includes the un-posted values in the Standard Aged Balances Report.
- Credit Control – This report adds information about last receipt date and amount, contact, position and phone details.
- Wide – Balances – This report allows for the print of the reports in a wide format increasing the amount of Balance Data displayed.
- Wide – Un-posted – Allows the printing of the reports in wide format increasing the amount of Balance Data displayed, including un-posted.
- Wide – Credit Control – Allows the printing of the reports in wide format increasing the amount of Balance Data displayed, including Last Receipt details.
- As at Period Balance – This report gives the Client Balances as at a particular period in time. This should agree with the Balance Sheet Control Account for the same period.
- As at Date Balance – This report gives a balance report based upon current transactions.
- As at Detailed – This report gives a balance report based upon 7, 14, 21, 30, 60 and 90 days. This report also provides the Client’s agreed terms.
- As at Detailed Unallocated – This report prints balances for each client that are overdue and are also unallocated as of the entered date.
- As at Detailed Unallocated Periodically – This report prints balances for each client that are overdue and are also unallocated for a chosen period.
- Cash Flow – This report allows you to specify a given date prior to viewing balances to aid in cash flow projections.
- Cash Flow Detailed – This report allows you to specify a given date prior to viewing balances and transactions to aid in cash flow projections.
- Sales Analysis – This report gives a brief Sales Analysis of each Client.
- Sales Analysis Full – Gives full details of the Sales Analysis.
- Total Due Check – Simple Report that only prints: Total Due, Historial Total and Current Total.
- Standard Balances (Landscape) – This is the same as the Standard balances report, but in landscape format with extra room for Company name.
- Payment Performance – This prints a report in the form of a chart for the selected Clients displaying their payment performance as a percentage for payment term periods.
- Balances with Average Pay Days – This report prints out for the selected, Clients the average time in days it takes a Client to make payment.
- Standard Balances in FX Currency – Prints the balances in both the Local and FX currencies.
The ‘Report Selection’ drop-down menu also allows you to select which Clients balance data you would like to report on, allowing you to get more granular and specific with your reporting capabilities:
- Balances Only – This will print out all of the active Client balances. It will be limited to those Clients who do not have a zero balance.
- Unposted Balances Included – Will print out a report which includes all active Clients balances which will now include any unposted transactions and again those Clients who do not have a zero balance.
- All Records – This option will tell the system to print balances for all active Clients currently in the system including those with a zero balance.
- All Records Include Inactive – The system will print the balances for all Clients in the system including those who are currently marked as inactive. This will not reset their inactive state to active and it will also list those who have a zero balance which should mostly be the inactive clients.
Once you have chosen your defined report details, and selected ‘Print’, you have the option to open the report as a PDF or print the report directly from SapphireOne.
Stay tuned for the next blog post in our next Accounts Receivables Reporting Tutorials, where we will be focusing on the Transactions Report.

Three of our SapphireOne testimonial clients, Monier Prime Rooftiles, and Moyle Bendale Timber have processed payruns this week and successfully lodged their first Single Touch Payroll (STP) event for the current financial year. Numerous other clients have also successfully lodged their first STP event with the Australian Taxation Office within the first week of its operation.
The Australian Tax Office has made it mandatory for any business operating with a staff capacity of 20 or more employees to implement a working Single Touch Payroll solution on or before July 1, 2018. SapphireOne was certified for this Single Touch Payroll on 1 May 2018.
To assess whether you need to implement Single Touch Payroll on July 1, 2018 you were required to do a count of your Payroll / HR employees as of 1 April 2018.
If this count is 20 or more, then you are a ‘substantial employer’ and will have to report through STP. If it is 19 or less, then reporting through Single Touch Payroll will be optional until 1 July 2019. After that, it becomes mandatory for every employer to report through STP which is of course subject to changes in the legislation.
As part of the Single Touch Payroll process, the ATO matches the information sent through the portal against the corresponding employer/ employee profiles. As a result, businesses will no longer be required to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year as it will have already been done and available to employees through myGov.
The following are some important aspects for employers to know regarding the Single Touch Payroll process:
- A regular pay cycle (pay event) is when an employer carries out payroll at fixed regular intervals to remunerate employees. This is usually weekly, fortnightly, bi-monthly or monthly.
- When you start reporting through your Single Touch Payroll-enabled solution, your pay event will need to include minimum reporting requirements in order for the ATO to receive the file.
- The employer must report the year-to-date values of gross salary or wages, allowances or other payments (as relevant), deductions and PAYG withholding for each employee included in each pay event.
If you currently fall into the “Substantial Employer” category and do not yet have a solution that works with STP, contact one of our SapphireOne team to go through your options in finding a resolution to your current systems short comings.
