New "building list import" facility in Invoice Tracker

If you are an Invoice Tracker user (generating invoices in Tracker to import into Sage) you may want the latest update which features a button to import the building list into the invoice (one building per invoice line).  This is especially useful if you survey multiple buildings (eg domestics) on a single Tracker survey project.

This new facility is available to all Tracker users with a live support contract.  Contact the office to book your update.

New Order Tracking facility in Tracker Web Server - we need your ideas!

Several Tracker Web Server clients have asked if we can incorporate an order tracking facility into the system so that their clients can see the progress of surveys, reinspections etc and order new work through the web site.

You will be able to enable and disable the facility on a client-by-client basis so don't worry that the system will suddenly start showing information to clients which you'd rather they didn't see!

This is now in development so if you think that this is a facility you might like to use, please email or ring Elaine in the office with your ideas!

Tracker Web Server v1.5.145 available

This is a minor update but worth having - it improves the category/sub-category facility (where you can break your projects down by department/area/sector etc) and also includes some cosmetic changes.

2009/10 - Start Software's best year ever

We're just closing our books for the financial year Oct 2009 - Sept 2010 and it looks like we've had our best year yet.

Turnover is up an amazing 50% on the year before and % profit has held up pretty well too:

We've expanded into a second software development office (based at the University of Wolverhampton's e-Innovation Centre in Telford) and a major new software project is well under way.  We also now have a London (virtual) office for use for meetings, training etc.

Trading conditions are still difficult with customers taking much longer to pay, on average, than in previous years but our markets held up in the recession pretty well.

Thanks for your support and business this year - our success is down to your custom and your belief in us and our products.  We all look forward to working with you throughout 2010/11.

Tracker Web Server v1.5.122 available

The latest release of Tracker Web Server has much improved hyperlinking throughout the system so that you can move more easily from actions and inspections (whether in "edit mode" or in the lists) straight back to the sites they are attached to.
