Further Improvements to Viberent – Part 1

1. Send Quotes/Rentals with Thumbnail Images

When you print or email quotes or rentals, you can now send these with Thumbnail images.  Follow these steps:

  • Click Print/Email in your Quote or Rental screen
  • Click Print Template drop-down and select BASIC
  • Tick the box titled “Show Item Image”
  • Click Print/Email (depending on which option you chose)

You will see the image appear in your print-out or PDF as below.

2. Automate Payment Terms / Due Date

You can now set default payment terms / due in # of days if you do not have standard terms for your customers. For example, with some non-account or one-off customers, you may wish to give them 1 day or few days as terms.  In Company Configuration screen, you can now set the default terms / due in # of days by ticking the box titled “Automate Payment Due Date”. Simply specify the number of days below.

3. Kits – Calculated Component Values

In many situations such as rental of security fence panels, scaffolds, platform decks and other situations, you can now have the component values calculated based on quantity of main kit item required for rental.  For example, a security fence rental business may rent fencing based on length of fencing required (eg 150m) but require number of fence panels required based on length of each panel. That is, for 150m of fencing, 116 panels of 1.3mtr length fencing may be required (ie 150/1.3) or 84 panels of 1.8mtr fencing may be required (ie 150/1.8).

When creating Kits in inventory management screen, tick the box titled “Calculate Component Qty” and specify the components calculation factors such as “/” for division, “* for multiplication” etc.

You can specify whether the calculation is based on the main kit item or one of the components by clicking the “Calculated From Item” drop-down

4. Automated rental reminders

You can now automated rental reminders to customers about their rental coming to an end.  In the Company Configuration – General System Configuration screen, you can specify the number of days earlier you require such reminders to be sent automatically.  You can also specify the email template that you wish to use for the rental reminders,

5. KIT Items creation from Inventory Management Screen

Now you can create the Kit items directly from inventory management screen (without going through Inventory – Kit Management screen).  To create a new Kit item, simply click “Add New Item” button, tick the box titled “It’s a Kit/package” and click Add Components button. Follow the instructions to create the Kit item and post to your accounting system if required.
