    Data Integrity - Our sync framework is transactional, so each invoice, quote or other records will only send up or down as whole intact records with all of their related data. You get the whole invoice will all the tasks or no invoice. This is data integrity. An example would be if you were sending up several invoices and quotes for the days work from your iPhone and the phone rings. The phone takes priority so it will interrupt the sync in process. No problem, the whole records that have been sent are processed, any that were not completed when the call came in will not be committed to the host because they did not complete. When the sync resumes or on the next sync any unsent records will be sent.

    FlatRate Pro™ video Tour

    What is a Flat Rate Book for? The primary reason is to enable you to earn a fair profit for the company. A good flat rate book is also to sell jobs to your customers, presented in the best way possible presenting a level of trust and credibility in your company and your price for the job.

    What is the point in having a flat rate book that will not create the quotes and then provide an invoice for the customer to sign?

    FlatRate Go™ will allow you to select the tasks and options to present a price to your client in a non threatening way using the well known Paper Towel Close.

    It's easy to show options with subtotals for each so your clients can easily select what they they want to have done from your quote. You just touch the screen to select the options chosen and create an invoice that can capture their authorization signature for the work. When you are done they can sign to accept the work done, enter the payment(s) made and email copies of the invoice in PDF format to the client and office. Then sync your work with your office host computer/server.
