NEW: Use local Inventory for autocomplete

Our autocomplete feature saves a lot of time but the list has grown and has many duplicate entries as our user base has grown.  We recently added improved local inventory support, and are now taking this a step further.  You can still choose to use the global list to build your local inventory, as you select parts they will be copied to your local inventory.

Other updates include being able to completely switch off global autocomplete and manage your stock independently. In this case any new parts added on an invoice, or on the Inventory screen, will be added for use in your local inventory and autocomplete.

If you are using the global autocomplete and stock management, you need to ensure you are selecting the corresponding part that has previously been added to your local inventory, admittedly this can get confusing, so it may be easier to decide on using global and switching it off after Inventory is built up with your most used parts.  The global list will still be useful to new users.

NEW: Improved inventory and markup on parts

We are happy to bring you even more functionality to our inventory and  parts sub system, you may notice on invoice creator that you can now add the markup percentage you wish to apply to a given part.

The Inventory system of our auto repair software has been updated to efficiently handle multiple markup options, you can enter a markup for part in your inventory that will be automatically applied when you invoice out that part from stock.

It is also possible to set a vendor markup rate, applying this markup rate to all parts from this vendor when a part is invoiced.

Upcoming updates will provide stock reporting on Inventory in PDF format for stock taking or general review.

NEW: Parts & Inventory Management

Auto Repair Invoicing Software (1)

It is now easy to manage your suppliers, parts and stock.  You can set your stock levels, and these will be updated when you create an invoice. You can manager your vendors and suppliers here also.  Parts you have used previously, and add from now on will appear in your inventory, you can choose to create vendors and update the listed parts with the appropriate vendor once you have created a few vendors to work with.

You can also directly email your auto repair parts supplier directly from the app, and send an email ordering more parts.  This is something we intend to automate in the future, i.e. notifying you when stock levels with a vendor have reached, or are approaching zero. Along with this we are building an automated parts order document, listing the parts, quantity required, and for your own benefit, showing you the cost of parts you need to order, this order sheet can then be emailed or printed. We hope to have this new feature of our auto repair invoice software ready in the coming week or two.

We are working on integrating this with the Repair Order creator, to let you know if you do or do not have the required parts in stock, with the option to order the required parts, this will be coming shortly.
