Invoicing is where we spend most of the time with workshop software so a great deal of time has been spent on perfecting this utility. G-E has many functions built into the invoicing utility to make your life easier.
For starters, the
invoice screen is split into two. The top section handles all the parts sold on
the invoice and the lower section handles the text. Both sections are visible at
Speaking of appearance, G-E prints a neat and tidy invoice. A
of thought and effort has been put into the invoice aesthetics. Your client sees the invoice
so a neat and tidy appearance is imperative as it may be regarded as a
reflection on your work.
G-E also utilizes an invoice "kits" utility. A kit is a complete invoice containing all parts, labour and sublet work along with the text. This is ideal for repetitive work and with this function a comprehensive invoice can be written in seconds. Invoices created for the first time can be saved as a "kit" for future use.
History for the vehicle being
invoiced is one mouse click away. What did you charge the client
for the last set of brake pads you fitted? The History control quickly
reveals that invoice. You can even copy the text from that invoice
and paste it into the invoice you are writing without leaving the
Tax adjustments (credits) can be written from the invoicing menu and adjustments can also be edited.
To sum up, we spend a lot of time writing invoices to clients, this is where we collect for our efforts! G-E presents an aesthetically perfect invoice, along with your logo if you wish. The invoice system is presented as if you were using a paper based system. You would normally list the parts and write any text in an invoice book.
GST totals are shown and all the maths is looked after for you. G-E gives you the tools you require to quickly generate your invoices. I am using G-E to write invoices every day in the workshop and I don't have time for anything but an efficient system.
