The first simPRO update for Q4 2019 will roll out from October 6. The update reduces the time you spend adding vendor quote pricing, catalogs and invoices into simPRO.
Import vendor quotes
It is now faster to add vendor pricing to customer quotes and jobs. The new feature is based on a popular request in the simPRO customer Ideas Portal and removes the need to manually update the price of items on accepted vendor quotes.
The process for creating a vendor quote remains the same. But when the time comes to email the request, vendors will now receive a standard formatted CSV file, along with a PDF, to complete and return. Copies of these files can be attached to the Vendor Quote Attachments so they are easy to find later on.
When the updated file is returned, staff can quickly and easily apply the quoted pricing against the vendor quote via a CSV import. They also have the option to associate the vendor with the catalog items that were featured on the quote.
The pricing shown will be the trade price, so that any one-off discounts provided on the quote are not inadvertently used elsewhere.
Automating Catalog and Vendor Invoices for Middy’s Data & Electrical
Available within Australia only
Middy’s Data & Electrical customers can now access automatic synchronisation for catalogs and automatic imports for vendor invoices. The change will reduce the time spent on manual imports, and reduce mistakes from data entry.
These automation features have been developed for a number of vendors across Australia and New Zealand in 2019, and simPRO continues to work on adding more to the list. If you have a suggestion for a vendor you would like included, please let us know in the simPRO Customer Ideas Portal.
