Two-factor authentication (2FA)

Two-factor authentication (2FA)

Two factor authentication (2FA) is an authentication method where you have to successfully complete two steps to log in somewhere. From now on it is possible to use 2FA to log in to Qbil-Trade.

By using two-factor authentication, a malicious person who holds your password cannot access Qbil-Trade. This is because in addition to your username and password, your smartphone is also required to log in.

On the user page we added a button to activate 2FA.

Instruction:

  • First of all, download the Google Authenticator app on your smartphone
  • Go to Qbil-Trade. Via the menu at the top right click on “account” and go to your user page.
  • Click on the button “activate Two Factor Authentication”
  • You will be asked if you are sure you want to activate it.
  • Clicking OK will display the QR code you need to scan with your phone in the Google authenticator app.
  • Scan the QR code in Google authenticator.
  • Now that the 2FA has been successfully turned on, a green check mark will appear on the user account screen.
  • Once 2FA is enabled and the user logs back in with username and password, the user is asked for the code in the Google Authenticator app.
  •  If the user wants to deactivate 2fa, go to the user account page and click the button “deactivation two factor authentication”
  • Click OK and the 2fa is deactivated

 

The 2FA function is available to everyone and is free of charge. We advise to make company policy that everyone uses 2FA. If someone leaves the company, the account can still be deactivated by the administrator, as is the case now.

SIMAC, new Qbil Partner

SIMAC, new Qbil Partner

Simac Document Solutions is our new partner for scanning and recognizing incoming invoices. And the partnership between Qbil and Simac has been confirmed: the solution is currently implemented at the first joint customer Nutland.

Qbil and Simac about the benefits of this partnership

Mark Ellis (Financial ERP Consultant Qbil Software):

“Thanks to the partnership with Simac, we can now offer our customers a solution for scanning & recognizing incoming invoices that is seamlessly linked to our Qbil-Trade® ERP system. An investment that earns itself back quickly: in addition to saving time, there is also less risk of making mistakes, the loss of invoices and real-time insight into the status of your invoices. Either more overview and control. “

Dico Harteman (Sales Manager Simac):

“This invoice processing solution offers Qbil’s customers the opportunity to use a cloud solution that automatically recognizes at least 80% for paper, PDF or XML invoices. This usually results in a time saving of at least 40-70%. “

New colleagues

Since early June, Marcel van Meenen has been working for us in the position of Customer Support Engineer. Initially, Marcel focussed on getting to know our software and various tools. But from now he is fully involved in the team of Chris and Tajamul.

After a half year internship at Qbil, we didn’t want to lose him. HBO software engineering student, Stijn Leskens, started the last year of his study in September, but has also been working at Qbil for one day a week since then.

Since September, Zaid Saddiki, MBO application development, is doing an internship at Qbil. Zaid will stay until February 2019.
