Workflow Rules

SI 2018 R2’s new Workflow rules help business managers maintain control over company standards and processes. Workflows can be set up to trigger an action and/or send a notification based on user-set criteria for the following SI entities: Projects, Purchase Orders, Tasks, and Service Orders. Entities and/or their reports can be locked when a rule is triggered, requiring a user with permissions to unlock them before edits can be made.


Notifications can be sent to SI users in-app, as well as emailed, to inform team members of project and sales activities such as when a project’s margin falls below limit, when a project is approved, when revisions have been made, and more, to ensure everyone assigned to the project has the information they need to adapt as the parameters of a project change, and to stay on-task as required.  

Calculated Product Costs and Labor Items

Users can now easily calculate the Unit Cost and Unit Price values of products and labor items derived from formulas based on a variety of fields within SI. With the unit cost and unit price of product and labor items, SI can automatically calculate overall project items such as shipping, per diems, allowances, and more. This helpful new feature helps managers ensure product and labor costs remain consistently accurate and within budget.

Mobile Install Enhancements

Documents and site images added to Mobile Install can now be synced to SI, providing centralized storage of project files.
