GL Soft Close
MRI Software has launched an update once again! 10.5.2- filled with some polished touches on several features. GL Soft Close now allows users with an Advanced GL or Enterprise Ledger license to soft close a General Ledger (GL) period for a specific entity or entities, so that only users with sufficient access can enter transactional data and journal entries into that period.
