Limiting Pricing Visibility

You can decide who sees pricing and specifically limit the visibility of item, customer, list or total pricing for each user in the system.  This allows your technical staff to focus on the delivery of service while sales, ownership and management can decide separately on individual charges when invoicing.

What are Visit Reports (Field Slips)?

Visit Reports include all the details about a Customer Visit as reported by the Technician

  • Usually entered in the App by the Tech
  • Usually based on the scheduled Visit details created before the visit, but can also be created from scratch in the App
  • Can also be created in the Web System

Field Slips have all the information useful for Billing

What are Invoices?

Invoices are sent to Customers for Payment

  • Usually made up of one or any number of Visit Reports, but can also be created from Scratch
  • While you can adjust the pricing of individual line items in the Field Slips these are carried over to the Invoice
  • Can also be created from Estimates instead of Field Slips
  • Based on individualized Custom price for each Customer if setup.Field Slips have all the information useful for Billing
