Announcing "the Wishlist"

Gripes, grizzles, ideas, suggestions? In our 7 years we have implemented over 1,080 new features/enhancements and we are continuously seeking feedback on how to improve our products - maybe its an extra mouse click that you find annoying, or just part of the user experience that could be made better. Even suggesting a new feature or module that helps you get your job done.

Simply send an email to wishlist@poolcar.com with a brief description and leave a contact number so that we can contact you if we need more information. Whilst we can't promise that we will add every suggestion, our team will discuss each submission with a view to including it to a future version.


Credit Card Customers

Lots of changes this month relating to billing and particularly for those customers who remit by credit card. We are currently transitioning all credit card customers across to a new payment gateway which supports multiple currencies. Presently all card customers were billed in AUD which resulted in bank conversion fees. Going forward we can now charge USD customers in USD to avoid these charges. We are looking to add GBP support soon.

Card Customers can now also view and download copies of invoices/receipts online and nominate additional people to receive the receipt emails when a card payment is made.


Invoice Reminders

We have recently implemented a new reminder system in our accounting software to help customers track outstanding invoices.
