Do you stock tools and other parts for your contractors?
We currently have one supply module available which supports the medium and small sized install shops. This module supports an unlimited number of tools and parts that you make available to your technicians. Invoices are created for incoming and outgoing supplies so accurate inventories are possible.
Our future plans are to include a supply module which supports scanning of UPC's for larger warehouse style shops.

To view invoice lists for technicians. Click "Tech List" on the top menu bar and the option to view the invoice list will be available.
6. Tool and part pricing.
Tools and parts both have two sets of prices, the cost to the technicians and the wholesale price. The amounts seen as the current price on the screens throughout this tour are the current technician price.
The prices for tools, parts, provider parts, and equipment are set in the administration panel of this software. Setting tool prices is briefly described in the "Administration" part of the tour.
This system is designed to provide accurate accounting of pricing for all items in the system even when the price of a part fluctuates. Price changes are added to the item along with the date. When an invoice or report is created a date can be used to find the proper price.
