* New print layouts required for Quote Options and Consolidated Purchase Orders

These two new 10.6 features require different print/pdf layouts before they can be used.

We have standard templates available for both new layout kinds.   Once you’re on Synergist 10.6 you can download them here.

You can copy and paste branding graphics from one of your existing layouts onto the new templates.  (You may be using a PDF “watermark” for your layout branding, if so you’ll need to associate it with the new layouts)

Customised versions of both layout kinds, in line with your current layout design, can be done for you at a charge of £75 + VAT per layout.  Have more than 3 quote or 3 PO layouts?  Send your current quote and/or purchase order layout set to to obtain a costing.

Layout customisation will be carried out by either client services at Express Systems or the Synergist support team.  Any additional changes to new or existing layouts are charged at £100 per hour.
