New Features

The quotes workspace has been entirely rebuilt in HTML with an all-new interface to bring it inline with the look and feel of the job and asset workspaces. Beyond the new interface there are also a host of other improvements to make quoting easier and more enjoyable, including the ability to

  • Quickly convert a quote to a job, optionally copying over tasks, description, and the quote value as the job approval limit

  • Choose who you email the quote to for approval, along with the ability to compose the email in full rather than depending on a pre-defined template

  • Cross-reference the quote value against a job, with easy links back and forth

  • Optionally refine a quote, even after it has been sent

  • Please note: All of the underlying quoting logic is largely unchanged, so all of your existing quotes will be unaffected, with minimal impact to your business processes

  • Please note: The new quote workspace is only available in our paid plans. Contact us if you'd like more information.

Our incredibly popular report-a-problem feature has been extended significantly to support a host of new features including the ability to

  • Report and view problems directly against assets and sites, along with photos, detailed descriptions, location information and more

  • Report problems of different types to help categorise and track what problems are occurring most often

  • Filter your assets and sites in list and map views to easily identify those with open problems

  • Create 'resolution jobs' against individual problems, allowing you to easily action and resolve problems by completing or closing the job

  • Please note that the current version of our mobile app (1.4.1) does not yet take advantage of the new problem functionality. You'll see this introduced in the next version.
