Site Search

Global Search window -> Site # field -> Site Search

Accounts Receivable Menu -> Customer Information -> SITE button -> Site Search

Sites indicate where the equipment or services is being used.
The site address information displays as it will print on the document.

A flag in the Additional Information for each customer can be set, forcing the operator to enter a valid site code on each document for that customer, with the exception of Point Of Sale Invoices.
A flag in the Required Document Information in the Company Contract Parameters can be set to ensure that this Ship To City is a valid city registered in City Tax Codes.
When the Ship To City is mandatory on documents, and there is a 'Prov' and/or a 'Postal' code associated with the selected city in the City Tax Codes table, then these Province/Postal values will default to the Shipping address when the city is entered on the address.

Customer and global sites are both setup in Customer Site Information.

Determining the Site on a Document:
If a Site is not a mandatory field, when the Site Information window is opened on a document, the site address initially reflects the customer's billing address, and can be changed as required.
The site details entered in this situation, apply only to the document and are not saved for the customer.
Map and Directions from Store to Site:
If the URL direction and map information has been entered in the Mapping Tools section of the Address Tools tab on the Software Integration, a SHOW MAP button is provided on the Site Information window to launch your firms preferred locator site in a standard Web browser such as Internet Explorer, as outlined in Map Location.

Site Service Interval:
When this window is triggered to view an existing site and a Service Interval has been defined in the Customer Site Information, the default is displayed but can be over-typed as required when the site is selected for a specific contract.
Refer to the Job Site Service Schedule on details of this feature.

Delivery/Pickup -WinRoute:
When an existing site is displayed the three Delivery/Pickup values default from the Customer Site Information and only display when WinRoute is activated in the Software Integration, and when the site search is generated from a rental document.
They are used by the WinRoute delivery/pickup scheduler to calculate trucks and routes, and can be over-typed as required.
The Site Type is used to identify site neighbourhoods that restrict certain types of trucks, and the Loading Dock and Call First flags provide information to the driver.

To select an existing Site the following Site Search option can be accessed from the window on the Site # field, or if the Site is mandatory on each document as configured in the Required Document Information in the Company Contract Parameters, the Site Information window is skipped and the Site Search list is generated to select a valid site.
Options are provided to add, change and delete the sites stored in the Customer Site Information.
