Our Objitec Logo
We were in need of a company logo so we made use of the excellent fiverr site and got one designed for us for five quid!
This is what the designer provided us with…
Which we were all very pleased with.
Direct Debit Payments
This month we went live on gocardless with a few customers. Meaning monthly payments for these customers will automatically enter our bank account without any further effort from us or our customers.
Due to us going live with direct debit for some of our customers we built an invoicing module which automatically generates an invoice for our services. Our customers can simply log into their admin module to view / print invoices.
Part of an example invoice:
This month we also coded PlanIt-BookIt to prevent people with expired memberships from viewing the members directory and from viewing or making any further bookings.
We also enabled admin’s to determine which membership types can be selected for renewing online. We did this to prevent people from changing their membership type to any of the other membership types – for example you wouldn’t want a standard member to change their membership to some discounted membership role such as say a club that has a reduced rate longstanding member.
Now that membership can be renewed online some of our customers requested to be able to view a list of members that had expired in the last 30 days so we added that to the admin module.
With SalesTalk we completed a number of cosmetic changes requested by one of our customers and we added templates for the costing module.
The idea being that if you add a template to a job then all the items associated with that template will automatically be added to the job.
The screen below shows where you can add items to a template…
The final costing module is going to be able to re-cost jobs by adjusting the sizes of the boxes being made. For this reason items are specified with a width, depth or height dependent attribute.
Nothing much to note in terms of new business this month, however we do have a very small business that might be joining us as a customer next month.
