Since last year’s show, we’ve been working hard to update Current RMS with lots of new features useful for your industry. We’ve got lots to show you! Just a handful of our new features include:
We know how important appearances can be, especially when communicating with your customers - Discussion Templates allow you to customise the communications you send from Current RMS by creating templates. This is great for storing common messages that you frequently send, or for adding your own company styling to them. Do a Deal is also another feature perfect for those of you working in the events industry. It allows you to apply a blanket deal price straight to a job, either to everything on your job or just to individual groups you’ve got set up, ideal for ensuring the cost you’re charging the customer is exactly what was agreed. Finally, Choosing Accessories gives you much greater flexibility when adding items with accessories stored against them to jobs. You can now specify how many of each accessories you’d like to add under the parent product, with their availability shown. See all of our new features in action during the show!
We’ll also be sharing with you a sneak peak of our upcoming Automatic Costing and Purchasing modules! We’re hoping to have them released in Current very soon. These new modules will automatically pull through additional costs onto a job, including sub rents, freelance costs and any purchases. Users will also be able to create purchase orders to send from Current, and post these across to accounting software Xero and Quickbooks Online. If you want to see how they’ll work, visit our stand, where one of the team will happily run you through the modules so far!
