BASIS International Ltd. releases 'AddonSoftware® by Barista®' version 12.0.

A major milestone of this release is the new Bill of Materials (BOM) module. Read all about the BOM features and functions in the 12.0 release notes. In addition, BASIS included significant performance enhancements, specifically in the area of grid management. BASIS also added new debugging capabilities to Barista, including the ability to dot-step through the code and generate performance analysis of the code. By no longer SAVEPing aspects of the Barista codebase, BASIS has greatly simplified the troubleshooting of AddonSoftware and custom code in the field
