  Future of Amsoft





What's New:

9-20-2001 We have added the e-mailing option to a larger number of forms, including the binder and the invoices. We have also added the e-mail driver installation into the program. To install the driver, click on 'File' 'Options' and click on the 'Install pdf print driver for email' button and follow the on-screen instructions. For more information about e-mailing, please see the e-mailing section of the manual.

9-15-2001 We have upgraded our word processor to a more complete version. The word processor now stores each client's word processing documents in his file. It also asks you if you wish to add the task as completed into the memos and suspense file. We believe this is a wonderful addition to the program.

To open a clients word processing file, highlight the client on the main client browse box, and click on the 'WP' button at the bottom right of the screen. The first time you enter word processing you will need to install the drivers by clicking on 'Install Drivers' from the wp menu.

This Word processor will read in many different file types, including Microsoft word, and should be able to read in any documents created in our old word processor. For documents created in the old word processor that have merge fields inserted into them, the merge fields will need to be deleted and then re-inserted. Should you have any problems opening old documents, the old word processor is still available to you

For more information about the new word processor, please see the word processing module section of the manual.

8-20-2001 Added a zip backup procedure to file maintenance. Should you need to make a quick backup of your most important files, you can do so with this utility. Go to 'File' 'File Maintenence' and 'Client Files'. Then choose 'Zip Files'. This should not replace your daily backups.

4-23-2001 The Certificate of Property Insurance is now available in our Form Manager.

4-6-2001 We have added the ability to include non-commissioned fees and taxes on the premium screen. This will allow you to enter the base premium and non-commissioned fees on the same screen, instead of having a separate transaction for every fee and tax.

4-1-2001 We have changed the Main client screen. The first tab now shows all policies, and turns the cancelled or expired policies red. This was needed to answer speed problems that many users were experiencing. If you want to view just current or just cancelled policies, click on the open folder icon button at the bottom of the screen, and those tabs will appear on the screen.

2-3-2001 We have a new version of Amsoft available with some revised screens. You will notice additional alphabetic search keys and some new color coding. Mostly, the new version has a lot of 'behind the scenes' stuff that will allow us to do a lot more in the future.

Now you can just go to the ID Card Manager, select the client you wish to print ID cards for, and go to the form. Not only should this make them easier to use, but should also speed up the printing process.
