More updates have been released for our Alpha Tracker software for asbestos surveyors and consultancies. This update, SVN399, has the following improvements:

  • projects and sites can now be deleted by Superusers [14 & 17]
  • you can now include an extra line of information on the footer of your invoices [16]
  • there is a more obvious prompt to perform a second analysis of non-asbestos samples [15]
  • if you allow deposits to be received on a job before invoicing, the invoice will now deduct the deposits [21]
  • there is a new list of projects "in progress" where data has been received from surveyors [19]
  • there is better control of closed projects stopped accidental data modification [53]
