02. Quote/Job Defaults

    Step 2 is to configure the default labour rates, Markup percentage, etc. Click on the relevant button and the following screen will be displayed.


    Please Note that the following sections are only available in the Professional version of Veculim:

    • Gross Profit Target
    • Default Towing Origin

    Quote and Job Settings

    Labour Rates

    These are the default values the system will use for labour rates for each new quote. Each value may still be changed by the user when creating a new quote. These are not fixed values but merely act as a guideline in the absence of any determined value. You can also set default labour rates for each insurance company which will override these default labour rates values when creating a new quote for that insurance company.

    You also have the option to not show Zero Values on the Quote by ticking the box. If you check this option, then where R0.00 would normally be printed, the area will instead be blank.





    Here is where you can enter the Parts Markup, Paint Markup and Paint Material Cost (as percentage). These are overrideable for each insurance (as with the Labour Rates).



    This is where you can set the default Sundries percentage, maximum amount allowed for sundries and also the Consumables percentage. These are overrideable for each insurance (as with the Labour Rates and Markup).

    In this window you will be able to enter a disclaimer,certification and/or Clearance certificate Guarantee details (or any other message a user may wish to enter) which will be printed at the bottom of the quote.

    The number or work bays can also be configured in this window and will allow the system to indicate the workshop capacity and the extent of availablity.






    The Default Towing Origin can be specified in this section and will be used when creating a tow in record. This is useful if your tow-ins generally originate from the same location (like a contracted yard for storage).
