New Features - Build 6
 1. The mobile quoting solution for QuoteWerks - QuoteValet mobile is now available. QuoteValet Mobile is included in your QuoteValet subscription at no additional charge. QuoteValet mobile is a platform independent mobile quoting solution for tablets.

 3. New Inbox tab on the QuoteValet Dashboard. On the Inbox tab you will Only see new QuoteValet activity notifications. This is an improvement over the Reporting tab which just shows all activity.

Each inbox notification displays an icon indicating what type of activity has happened since you last checked.

 4. For QuoteValet users, on the QuoteValet Dashboard, the reporting has been enhanced. The Manage tab has been renamed to Reporting, and now there are some new reports. There are separate "Customer Activity" and "Internal Activity" reports. The Expiring/Expired reports have been separated into "Expiring" and "Expired" for more effect use. A new report "Uploaded for Customer Acceptance" is useful for knowing how many quotes where uploaded for customer acceptance during any given date range. Another new report is "Accepted (with balance due)" useful in tracking down those customers that have not paid yet. Another related new report is the "Payment Received" report. Lastly to pair with the new QuoteValet Mobile functionality there is a new "QuoteValet Mobile Documents" report. The QuoteValet document activity history now is color coded so that Customer activity is different than Sales Rep activity. You can now also filter documents by "Doc Name contains", "Company starts with", and Source (QuoteWerks or QuoteValet Mobile).
