simPRO Update: Let your pre-builds do the talking

by Erin Haywood
July 6, 2017

Prepare for a pre-build rebuild! Many improvements to the handy function in simPRO are on the way – the first of which is included in our next update, rolling out from July 9.

To see a step-by-step video on the new features, head over to the release notes. Otherwise, read on for more details.

See clearly now

You let us know you’d like to include pre-build descriptions on your quotes to provide greater visibility to your customers – now you can do this and much more.

You can now add pre-build descriptions to selected quote, job, and invoice forms (with or without quantities or prices), so you can quickly see what each pre-build includes and what it’s used for, and your customers can know exactly what they’re getting in a scope of works. How’s that for convenience and great service?

Refreshed pricing types

We’ve also refreshed the pricing types for pre-builds. Now, when you create a pre-build with a pre-determined sell price, you can select the ‘flat rate’ pricing type, previously known as ‘set price’. Easy!

To see additional improvements included in this release, see the release notes.

This is one of our regular software updates, aimed at bringing in new features and improving existing features in response to client feedback, and making sure our software helps our clients stay ahead of the game as the trade and technology landscapes continue to evolve.
