As we wrap up another big year on behalf of the entire simPRO team I would like to say thank you for being a simPRO client and for providing us your business, ideas and opportunities. It is only because of your continued support we’re able to continue to develop the product and it’s features.
2013 was a big year for most of you and it was certainly a hectic year for us at simPRO as well. Below are some highlights from 2013.
Changes affecting clients using Customer Retentions:
This weekend we’ll be releasing simPRO Enterprise v11.3.
Enterprise v11.3 introduces a specific asset account for Customer Retentions. Setting up these accounts will ensure that retentions are posted to the correct general ledger account in your linked accounting package when invoices are sent across. The new method aligns with those set out by relevant accounting standards.
New User Guide article: Posting Customer Retentions to Accounts
After the release you will need to take the following action before posting invoices across to your accounting package:
- On Monday 9th December visit help11.simpro.co
- The User Guide home page will guide you through what you need to do
- Failure to enter valid accounts will not affect your data; an error message will simply prompt you to make the change.
- There will be no change to how customer retentions appear on your jobs or invoices; this change only affects how they are posted to your accounting package.
Congratulations to our North Island Business Development Manager, Marcel de Witte, on receiving the Paul Fellows Medal from the Rotary Association. He also has received an award from the Auckland Council for his services to the community.
Not only is Marcel a champion within simPRO, he excels in all his efforts within the community. His projects included fundraising NZ$1 Million for the Hawke Sea Scout Hall in Cox’s Bay and managing its restoration.
We are lucky to have such a hard working and community-focused person on the simPRO Team. Great work Marcel!
It’s that time of the year. For many businesses, December can be a quiet time where everyone gets a little time to reflect on the year gone by and strengthen our business relationships for the oncoming year. For others, it becomes a season of madness, and they struggle to keep up with the sheer volume of work by which they’re utterly inundated.
In either case, it can get tricky to single out the few individuals to whom you will thank for their patronage during this holiday season.

Now the only decision you have to make is what to put in the hamper!
Being involved in business improvement and consulting in various industries, from capital city retail stores through to trade services in mining country, has given me a good vantage point to observe what various businesses across different markets did and did not do well in 2013.
