BusinessCraft offers BC Go for use in the field for certain Contracts Module activities. BC Go is designed to sync data between the BusinessCraft server and remote devices. The application is designed primarily for use by Building Supervisors or other field staff in the construction industry that are required to work offline due to communication services not reliably available where they normally work. As a connection becomes available the data recorded offline can be synced back to the server and updated information available from the server is synced back to the remote device.

Supplier Rebates Product Guide published
BusinessCraft Supplier Rebates provide the ability to track and claim Supplier Rebates offered by Suppliers.
Supplier Rebates can be configured so that the Supplier offering the Rebate (Rebate Supplier) can be different from the Supplier providing the goods/services (Purchase Supplier). The Rebate Supplier must be linked to a Customer Code so that generate Supplier Rebate invoices can be directed appropriately.
Supplier Rebates can be configured for a specific period of time and can be based on a percentage, or fixed amount with specific refinements available depending on whether the Supplier Rebate is an Item Rebate or a Supplier Rebate.
Supplier Rebates comprise either:
Item Rebates which are recognised on posting of Accounts Payable Invoices matched to Purchase Orders by Line.
Supplier Rebates which are generated periodically within the Supplier Rebates module
In both cases, Supplier Rebate History records are created which are then used to Generate Supplier Rebate Invoices from within the Invoicing Module.
Invoices can use specific Sales Codes so that Supplier Rebates are posted to appropriate General Ledger accounts.
