Streamlining inventory counts

Would like to see the development of a dedicated inventory count module (in a lightweight or mobile version) – whereby you can scan a part using a bar code scanner (or search for it by name, category, subcategory, sales description, etc.), it pulls it up in Aptora, and you can add your physical count for …

Item Reservation List

1.) Allow the user in TOM to use the “Reimbursables list” in the work order forms. Many times adding reimbursables to an invoice is too late in the process as the techs have already performed the work and collected payment. Add a notification that there are reimbursables available for the work order when the work …

Multiple Alias Part Numbers

Would like the ability to assign multiple alias part numbers from the same vendor. A simple example, multiple types of pex fittings are available from the same vendor under different skus.

Separate client emails for work order and invoice notifications

We have several clients where they have requested the work order notifications be sent to one email address and invoices sent to a different one. Currently only one email address is supported in TOM/Mobile and so both the work order and invoice are going to the same person without manual intervention.

TOM Contact Log

Right now there is no recorded history of invoices or correspondence sent from Mobile. We suggest, particularly with invoices sent from mobile, that they be recorded to the ToM contact log so there is history and “proof” that the invoice was in fact sent to the customer. It’s important to track all billing correspondence and …
