We’re pleased to announce that we’ve just upgraded your software and added two new, much-requested features to give you even greater control over your planned contracts. The new features, Retentions and Per Property Surveys, are available now to all customers using the PlanWorks module.
Typically Landlords would use this to retain a percentage of payments due to their contractors until final completion of the planned maintenance work, thus ensuring that snagging and additional work is promptly dealt with. The new retentions feature is highly configurable, allowing you to set variable rates across different contractors and projects. All calculations are automated based on the parameters you’ve provided so you save time and reduce the chances of human error affecting your planned maintenance projects.
Per Property Surveys
We have seen an increasing number of users moving from model cost based planning to per property surveys. With this addition to the software we now fully support Per-Property Surveys as well as the traditional method. In each case you’re planning creates a baseline from which you can clearly understand the variance that is occurring as the works progress.
Additionally we are pleased to tell you about our new look and feel delivering a fresher look and simpler user experience. The new look & feel starts in this release with a new logon experience removing the steps required to get you to where you need to be. Subsequent releases will see the new look & feel more widely adopted making its way further into the product.
If you have any questions on how to use this or any aspect of the software then please contact the support team: firstname.lastname@example.org
