Additionally, within the bid, users will have new folders for Contract Items & Phase Codes or WBS, which include all of the items that will be exported to the ERP system.
Reduce data entry and errors when bringing Bid Summary data into Vista or ProContractor. Each Bid Summary component line can now be exported to ProContractor or Vista. Users also have the ability to set up line items to include calculated values such as Tax Amount, Overhead/Profit Amount, Labor Dollars, etc.
Improved help makes it easier to submit and manage cases and enhancement requests. Features have been added to Help for better case management, and easier submission of new cases.
