PreeVu Release V.2.3.0005 June 10, 2012

New Look
We enlisted the help of a great group of designers – our customers – to help refine PreeVu for a smoother user experience and overall feel. You will notice a whole new cleaner color scheme to help keep the clients focused on your wonderful work and designs. Adjustments to fonts and navigation have also been updated to increase efficiency and effectiveness. While we have done much to enhance this part of PreeVu we are interested in your feedback to make it even more effective for you.

Session Tracking
Now you can “tag” your activities such as booking an appointment and invoicing your clients with a session code id. Make your own custom session types such as family, senior, or wedding then add a session code id to “tag” them for later reporting. Why is this such a big deal? The information that will be available to you will help you make better business decisions on pricing, profitability and effective marketing. This new feature goes hand and hand with our new budgeting center. And of course all this information is readily available on all synchronized computers. See Tutorital Here.

Budgeting Center
The all new budgeting area of PreeVu is very powerful. You can setup several scenarios to see what the best possibilities will result in. You can setup a session average by type then pop in an estimated average sale, click calculate and check your results. If you need more revenue you will either need to do more sessions or have a higher average. Export to budgets to pdf, email, or csv for further data crunching in your favorite spreadsheet program. Plan your work, then work your plan. Speaking of working your plan, now you need to measure your results.

Accounts & Sales Tracking
The all new account manager is in the early stages and will require feedback, testing and a few more updates before we recommend total financial reporting in PreeVu. Business Management reporting and tracking is intact and will shortly be expanded. Now you will be able to work from one software for all your business needs. This area of PreeVu has a lot under the hood for business management of your studio. There are several reports already setup and more coming soon that will make very good use of this data: like profit-loss or income statements, Cost of Sales, product performance and more.

Report Manager
Sales ave per session reporting, Employee commissions, Orders in Progress and Products lists are already live. The all new report manager allows for adjustable dates (where applicable), printing of reports, exporting to pdf or csv files. Now you can also email reports directly from PreeVu. Many more reports are coming shortly if you have a suggestion for a built in report that would benefit your studio or other please let us know about it asap. See Tutorial Here.

Wild Sorbet
Look for the New Beach House Collection from Wild Sorbet under the Classic Builder in the Wild Sorbet Builder. We are going to introduce a limited selection of Round-About and Signature Frame options in the coming weeks.
