iPoint LLC, a full-service business management software provider for the home technology market, has updated its flagship business automation tool, iPoint Control. iPoint said that the software suite “streamlines business operations and provides a central point of communication and documentation” for the user’s entire company. And the latest update “empowers dealers to seamlessly invoice proposals and change orders built in iPoint,” which will allow the user to manage payments and credits directly from the platform, according to iPoint.
The company said that the addition of these “time-saving enhancements” build onto the already-extensive feature set that provides a single interface where the user can manage proposals, sales orders, change orders, invoicing, payment management, purchasing, inventory control, project management, scheduling, parts and time tracking, payroll, and more.
“Our unique payment system allows dealers to invoice a customer for a deposit without creating a posting transaction in QuickBooks,” Brooks Swift, founder and CEO of iPoint LLC, said in a statement. “This enables them to easily create progressive invoices, and wait until product and labor are delivered to the customer before applying sales tax. iPoint Control then seamlessly syncs the delivered goods invoices and payments into QuickBooks—saving dealers hours of tedious duplicate accounting.”
iPoint also announced major upgrades to its automatic notification engine. iPoint l has over 40 notification triggers, the company explained—each with custom parameters that allow the user to tailor alerts to their specific needs. Users can receive automatic updates for things like new proposals being created, a change order that requires approval, an accepted payment, or a product that needs to be ordered.
“iPoint notifications are like having a full-time project coordinator,” iPoint Control user Wynne Walker, vice president of Symbio Lighting + Control, said in the statement. “They are an integral part of our daily workflow and make the handoff between departments seamless. Without iPoint notifications, we’d be back to verbal conversations or physical paperwork to keep track of job progress, which is inefficient and error-prone.”
