This iPad only app, is for those people who make price quotes on the go. Do you buy those pads of blank sales orders at the office supply store? Well, you don't need to restock anymore, this app will replace that need.
SETTING UP COMPANY INFORMATION:
Open up the app, and fill in your company information, tap on “Change Defaults” to start and tap on "Save" when you are finished. This information will be displayed on each price quote. You can change this information later by tapping on the "Change Defaults" button.
The following fields can be edited: Company Name, Company Slogan, Address 1, Address 2, Phone Number, Fax Number (some users change this to website address or e-mail address), Quote Number, Company Policy 1, Company Policy 2, and Sales Tax (some countries prefer other naming instead of “Sales Tax”). Tap on the “Save” button when you are done editing the defaults.
NOTE: If you change the company information it will only appear on future quotes.
ADDING A LOGO:
Your logo file should be named “logo.png” NOTE: lowercase spelling and PNG format. If you don’t know or you aren’t sure how to change the format of your logo file, you need to contact your graphics designer. NOTE: YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE FORMAT BY SIMPLY RENAMING THE EXTENSION TO PNG. A logo designed with 100 x 100 pixels works best. You can use the default logo if you like.
