More Automation Features For RemOnline Users in 2022
The holiday season is a good time not only for reviewing the year behind but also for planning the next one. Let's review the biggest achievements of the year and take a look at the new functions that RemOnline will offer you in 2022.
2021 was Feature-Rich
Despite all the difficulties, the past year was productive for both our clients and the RemOnline team. The total turnover of our users' goods and services amounted to more than €400 million. We are very happy about such success of our clients. Thank you for using RemOnline to build your business!
It has also been a busy year of new feature releases and updates — 24, to be precise. Another inspiring number is 20,000 — it stands for new companies that evaluated RemOnline in 2021. Thank you for being active users and sharing your feedback! We are so proud to receive many positive reviews from you on Capterra.
Here are some of the major functionalities you empowered us to build in the passing year:
RemOnline App For Field and Office Teams
Besides field crews, employees of the brick-and-mortal shops do not always work with work orders at their workplace, nor have a computer at their fingertips to quickly verify customer data and work order details. But with the RemOnline App, your employees can work effectively from any location or while being on the move.

The RemOnline App allows you to view the total list of work orders and their details, filter, and quickly find the right one using the search (for now these functions are available on iOS and will soon be launched for Android). You can add photos, files, and comments, and view the event feed of each work order using your smartphone.
RemOnline Boss App For Mobile Leaders
Most SMB managers and executives spend most of their day at the shop to personally monitor employee productivity and company operations. To make them more mobile we launched the RemOnline Boss app this year.

This mobile application helps to stay on the same page with stats in real-time, view and filter data for any period, analyze customer reviews, contact employees with one tap, as well as secure an RemOnline account with two-factor authentication.
Activity Log Report For More Internal Control
Previously, managers had to navigate through different pages and documents of the RemOnline web to monitor the actions of employees. Now you can view all actions they do in RemOnline on a single page of the Activity Log.

Having this information easily accessible will help you avoid fraud and theft in your company. All actions of your employees are recorded in a single report showing you who created, edited, or deleted sales, work orders, and other documents. It is also possible to recover deleted customer data.
The new Tax Management feature helps business owners meet tax compliance and avoid errors in tax calculation and financial accounting.
Sales tax calculation set up in RemOnline
You can add or exclude taxes on a price for goods and services, set up company-wide rules and tax exemptions for certain categories, use multiple tax systems within one account, or set different tax rates for locations. You have to configure this once, and further RemOnline will do the calculations for you.
Employee Work Schedules For Better Organization
The bigger the company, the more employees it has. And the more mistakes in planning working hours and client visits can occur. To eliminate human error risk, RemOnline has introduced the Employee Work Schedules.
Employee Work Schedules Overview in RemOnline
You can record and schedule your employees' work, sick leaves, and vacation days. Based on this information, it’s now easy to set up an individual payroll scenario for each employee to automate the calculation of daily and hourly wages as well as paid and unpaid days off and sick leaves.
Company Insights to Drive Growth
To understand how good your business is doing, it is not enough to only track daily performance metrics. You need to go deeper into the data and analyze it in detail, looking for useful patterns and points of growth. This is what we have developed the Company Insights Report for.

This is a data visualization tool where you can view key business metrics in dynamics to see a big picture of how your company’s performance. You can generate an unlimited number of diagrams and trends on work orders, sales, calls, employees, and cash flow for any period in a few clicks.

Improved Functionality of the Module “Services”

It will be possible to combine employees into groups and subgroups according to the organizational structure of your company for a more convenient setup of the Employee Work Schedules.
Printing of Documents in a Certain Status
For each work order status, you will be able to configure the documents available for printing.
Display of Work Orders from Multiple Locations
If you need to quickly find a work order or other document, but you do not know what location it is in, you will be able to select a Group of locations instead of one specific location.
These are our goals for 2022. Stay tuned for more automation of processes, improved workflows, and constant growth of your company thanks to the new features of RemOnline.
