Web-based option

AdminBase is now available as a web-based version, including the AdminBase data export service and an improved dashboard feature that allows installers to create and manage contract ‘to do’ lists at a company level.

The new web service also integrates sales leads from an installer customer’s own website, directly into the AdminBase system, and includes a copy of the Canvassers app, which gives canvassers or showroom staff the ability to submit leads remotely, via tablet or smartphone.

“Many people still prefer desktop applications, and while we still offer this service, the popularity of web-based services is increasing – and for good reason,” Ab Initio managing director Rhonda Ridge said.

“A significant percentage of the UK workforce operated remotely, from home, during lockdown. Many will, understandably, not want to return to the office for some time. Some businesses, in fact, may struggle to safely accommodate staff, while others have found they are actually more productive, and prefer the flexibility of home working.

“In any case, our new web-based system allows our continually expanding customer base a much easier, more user-friendly way to remotely access all the benefits of the AdminBase system, which has been providing state of the art business management for installers for around 20 years now.”

The new web-based version of AdminBase is being offered as a free of charge upgrade to existing installer customers using the previous cloud-based service.
