Alert Weekly Help Desk Notes & Support Survey!

Welcome to your weekly Help Desk Notes and Support Survey!


Look What Alert CanDo!

Welcome to Alert’s weekly feature where we discuss things Alert does that
you may not know about! Let’s PAWS and learn!


Import/Export Features

Have you ever needed to update a field all at once, for everyone?
Did you know that there’s a quick and easy way to do it?
Welcome to Import/Export! Alert has three versions of Import/Export
and we’re going to  talk about all three over the next three weeks.
Today’s focus is on Customer Import/Export, and we’ll talk about
Sales Items and Assets later. Import/Export is an Add-On Module,
so let us know at sales@alertms.com if you’d like more information or a bid.

Customer Import/Export is useful when you want to update one or many fields
at the same time for many of your customers. For instance, perhaps you’d
like to turn on Damage Waiver for everyone, or an Admin or Environmental
Fee. This feature can be used to change the flags in your Alert customer files.

With this sales support software, simply export the customers to an Excel spreadsheet, make the
changes, and import them back in! You can pick which fields you’d
like to Import/Export so you’re not overwhelmed with data. Voila!

Other examples include: changing customers to require a PO# or jobsite information,
changing a % discount for many customers at the same time,
updating the preferred contact method, or changing billing cycles.

If you’ve ever wondered if Alert can do that – the answer is probably YES!
Just ask – we’d love to help you. support@alertms.com


Version 19 News!

This Week’s Featured Enhancement

New Back Office Reports

We put new reports in Alert every new revision and are excited to
share a couple with you today!

There’s a new Average Number of Days to Pay report and Average Number
of Days Open for Unpaid Invoices Report. Both these reports can be found on the same
input: Customer->ARFinancial -> Average Days to Pay.
The reports are run together, by date and location.

The below report samples are from our demo system –
your reports will be much more meaningful!

Call the Help Desk or email us at support@alertms.com to schedule your free upgrade!
