Winfotinto is already present at 25 countries, thank you.

Dear friends, we would like to celebrate that Winfotinto is already present at 25 countries. This week we have had our first customer from Australia.

Thanks to the confidence you are placing on us we can go on improving Winfotinto, so that little by little it can get to be the best program in the world for Dry Cleaners Management.

Our goal for 2010 is to be present at 100 countries. To be able to get to this number in such a short time, we are making a 50% special discount on Winfotinto’s retail price to the first customer from each country. For us, to get to a new country means to know its particularities, tax regulations, common work system,… In some countries we need to make specific adjustments for Winfotinto to meet the rules of the country or else we need to adapt to the common habits and customs. Once we get the first customer from a country, we can adapt Winfotinto to its needs, so that getting a second customer is much easier.

That’s the reason why we think that a 50% discount is a very interesting offer that can drive the person interested in it make the decision to buy Winfotinto and so allow us to have Winfotinto adjusted to meet more countries needs. For example, in Australia we have been asked to make Winfotinto invoice without the customer’s financial identification...

The different Winfotinto printing options:

eltron zebra

Dear friends, today we are going to deal with the different options allowed by Winfotinto when printing customer receipts, tags for items and adhesive labels.

To begin with, I’ll explain the different document formats printed by Winfotinto, so that we can see the possibilities of paper or media to use.

Customer receipt: It’s the ticket kept by the client. We speak of ticket to mean that it’s printed by roll-to-roll ticket printers, and it allows logo printing depending on the printer. It is the most common format used for individuals, and it is usually always printed. This document cannot be changed. In the event that you need a customized ticket, the customer collect sheet must be used, since it allows changes. The customer collect sheet may have the same format as the ticket, if desired.

receiptCustomer collect sheet: In the event that you don’t like working with a ticket format, you can work with this format which allows you to use preprinted paper with you data and logo, paper with multiple copies, different sizes, etc. For example it is usually used for hotels, restaurants, etc. We have several default formats you can try, to...

winfotinto updatesDear friends,

We are advancing the news on Version 2.1.6:

> Marketing
This Winfotinto version integrates the possibility to send text messages to customers’ mobile phones and e-mail or generate phone numbers lists for the IVM program. Different filters can be applied to select the customers we want to send messages to.

To use this new option we need to enter the Marketing option within the Queries menu. First, we need to select the type of forwarding we wish to perform (SMS, e-mail or IVM). Then, we need to select from the list the type of filter we want to apply. After selecting the filter we need to introduce the necessary data before applying it. For example, for the clients that do not bring items filter we have to indicate how long the clients have not brought items (number of days) Press the Apply filter button to display the clients you will send the messages to. In case you send them via SMS or e-mail, we have also a box to decide whether the forwarding will be only for clients with the SMS or email forwarding option enabled in their records.
Prepare the message to be sent according to the type of forwarding. In case the means is SMS, we need to write the message to be sent to the filtered clients taking into account the...

How to control the home delivery service with Winfotinto

home delivery1) In the program, create a HOME service2) Create a Home Collection item and a Home Delivery item

3) Apply the price you charge for collection and delivery. If you do not charge for home services, leave the price at 0; if you charge different prices for each home service item, create the price for each different charged item. The usual procedure is to get a upcharge for collection or delivery. It is not very usual to have different prices for home collection or delivery items, even if we have some clients who do it.

4) When a client calls up or calls in for home collections, you create a delivery note including at least home delivery service if you have to collect the items and you don’t know the clothes to be collected; or you create a delivery note with home collection or delivery and the items the client tells you to collect. In selecting the home collection or home delivery item on the ticket, you can include the date and time of collection or delivery on the item.

5) You can print daily a list of outstanding items for collection from the HOME service, to see all the outstanding items for home collection or delivery. Notice that in order to...
