Conveniently keep your important files in one place with document management improvements

We’ve been working with customers to improve our document management capabilities to make Readysell an even better place to store documents related to your business. Some of the changes you’ll see include:

  • Previewers for PDF files, Word documents, text files and images will give you a quick glimpse into a file to make sure you’re looking at the right attachment without having to open it
  • Attachments can now be linked to multiple records, meaning you won’t have to make unnecessary copies of the same file
  • Attachments are automatically linked to related records, making it quicker and easier to find attachments when navigating through the system

Improve technician productivity with easy access to service machine documentation

Documents attached to service orders, machines and their models (for example, copies of contracts, service manuals or other reference material) can now be conveniently accessed from the mobile app. Within a service call, just hit the “Attachment” icon to see the list of related attachments. Readysell Mobile will download the attachment from your server and open it with the native viewer application on your mobile device.

Ensure data integrity and improve productivity with barcode scanning improvements

We’ve made a number of improvements to barcode scanning in Readysell to help you use your scanner more effectively in more places.

  • Customer credit requests and supplier credit requests now correctly support barcode scanning. You can scan multiples of an item, and you the correct quantity will be scanned (either positive or negative) based on the transaction type.
  • If you have split a purchase receipt line and wish to scan items against the split line, you can now highlight that line and scan the item. The scanned quantity will count against the highlighted line (rather than always going to the first line)
  • We have a new “location scanning” mode for purchase receipts. If you already know the location of the product when you scan your receipts, you can turn on this mode to scan stock directly into these locations by scanning the location barcode rather than having to change the locations manually.
