Comodo Code Signing Certificate

Posted by Colin Wynn on Jun 26, 2007 in Commercial Administer, Move Administer, Shipping Administer, Survey Administer

ComodoAdminister Software Limited are pleased to announce that we have recently purchased a 3 year Comodo Code Signing Certificate for our software products.

Code Signing, through the use of digital signatures, enables software developers to include information about themselves and their code with their software. End users who download digitally signed 32-bit Portable Executable (.exe, .ocx, .dll or other) files can be confident that code really comes from us and has not been altered or corrupted since it was created and signed.

Recent operating system updates to Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and the new Windows Vista make it vital to use digital signatures in application files and installation packages. Vista uses code signing more widely than earlier versions of Windows. With the increased level of warnings in Vista, signing our application and installation files gives end users the reassurance they need to proceed with the installation.

Expect to see the use of our code signing certificate in forthcoming product releases and updates.

Summer Development Plans

Posted by Colin Wynn on Jun 15, 2007 in Commercial Administer, Move Administer, Shipping Administer

Administer Software LimitedFurther to our recent user survey (and many thanks to all that participated), we now have an idea of which enhancements are of high and low importance.

It is our aim that all 47 enhancements will appear in Move Administer, the majority during the summer period (now until end of August).

There were no surprises in that the facility to generate multiple PDF attachments on a single email was top of the list, which just goes to show that emailing stationery to customers is a huge advantage to our users. Runner up to multiple PDF attachments was a call back feature enabling reminders to be automatically and manually set (work has already begun on a prototype).

There were some surprises too, a margin report appearing to be of low importance to users, so too was the facility to share prospect addresses that were outside of their prospecting area.

An additional 15 enhancements were also provided during the survey, of which we see 10 being of benefit to others, and will probably be added to our summer development plans.

Work has now started on some of the enhancements, while the major ones will start in July, so please keep checking back for some interesting development news.

Declared Liability

Posted by Colin Wynn on Oct 28, 2005 in Commercial Administer, Move Administer, Shipping Administer

Changes in the way Move Administer handles declared liability are now complete and with our testers for their comments. When we originally added declared liability to Move Administer we simply removed all insurance fields, however since talking with our users we have made the following changes:

Liability can now be calculated and charged as a percentage of the removal charge. Yep, you did read right, charged!

For example, Move Administer allows you to produce a quotation with a Nett moving figure of 500.00. Lets say that your rate of liability is 10%, therefore your Liability would be calculated as 50.00. VAT is then calculated on the Nett + Liability, with the Total being the Nett + Liability + VAT.

When the Quotation is printed the customer sees the basic removal charge at 550.00 + VAT. When the Quotation is accepted the invoice generated will have a Nett figure of 550.00. There is no mention of the 50.00 Liability to the customer.

You also have a checkbox which if ticked will print that extended liability has been included, and the extended liability can have its own valuation cover that is different to the standard cover on a per product basis (Inland, European, Commercial, etc).

This new way of dealing with Liability allows you, the remover, to claw back some of that lost insurance revenue. And although on the example above £550.00 would be posted to the sales code assigned to the Quotation, Move Administer will have reports to show the breakdown of accepted Quotations, so you can then see just how much Liability revenue was charged in any period, allowing you to adjust your sales turnover figures accordingly.

The new liability rate can also be charged for additional services offered, and when it comes to Storage you can charge the Liability as a percentage of the weekly rate or a percentage of the declared valuation.

Fingers crossed that our Declared Liability testers find this a great addition to Move Administer.

Stationery: Commercial Quotations

Posted by Colin Wynn on Jul 27, 2005 in Commercial Administer, Move Administer

Here’s a sneak preview of the Commercial Quotations.

Each PDF consists of 2 pages consisting of a Quotation and an Acceptance. Whilst no Additional Services are shown, you can of course produce an Additional Services Quotation and Acceptance to accompany your Commericial Quotation.

As with Inland Quotations, free text can be supplied as Included and Excluded options.

So, first up is the layout used for those who are regulated by the Financial Services Authority and can therefore offer and charge for insurance cover.

Next we have the layout used for those who offer extended liability.

Comments appreciated, as always.
