October 2016

We are excited to have started work on the next generation of WinBEAT which will be cloud based and accessible anywhere, anytime and on any device.

You will be able to run your business and access your clients, policies, claims and accounting from your Mac, PC, tablet or even your phone (if you so desire!). Using next generation technology and multi-tier architecture, ease of use and security are key criteria. WinBEAT is well known for its easy to use interface and our next generation product will take away your server and hardware woes and free you and your team to work anywhere, on your choice of device.

We will keep you updated on the progress of our development in future eBEAT newsletters and on the website.

WinBEAT4.1 Invoice Update

WinBEAT System Administrators please note:

If you are considering purchasing new invoice stationery, especially if you pre-print on the reverse of your invoice paper, you should contact the WinBEAT helpdesk to discuss your options.

We are currently in the process of incorporating an "Invoice Reverse" into the WinBEAT Forms module to allow you to automatically add a back page to your invoice.

This means that you will be able to either duplex print the invoice, or PDF and email the invoice without having to add attachments for your invoice reverse wordings. You will no longer require pre-printed stationery to handle your Duty of Disclosure and other wordings.

In order to make our invoices consistent and to incorporate our new Background Funding module, we are implementing a 90 mm remittance for all invoice forms by March 2017.

The 90 mm remittance is currently applicable when you activate:

  • Macquarie Premium Payments (DEFT)
  • NAB Transact
  • Background Funding

The Invoice Reverse function is available in WinBEAT4.1.58 or above for Background Funding, NAB Transact and the Macquarie Premium Payments new EFT module.

Invoice reverse printing will be made available for all other invoice forms in our next release which is scheduled for March 2017. You can review the WinBEAT4.1.58 Release Notes, or the WinBEAT Forms User Guide, which is available via our online 'Help' for further information about utilising Invoice Reverse.
