Welcome to Issue No.37

In this issue the Chairman brings you up to date with what has been happening on the GDPR Issue, we draw your attention to the current deadline for the implementation of IPIDs and provide a summary of the Minutes of our Committee Meeting held in January.  In addition, we bring you news of Exclusive Membership Benefits and highlight the problems that can be encountered when relying on next day delivery of consumable items.

It is worth taking the time to click through and read these articles; you never know what nuggets of information await!

Important Open GI update to Integrated Products and Core.

The latest update of IP5.81.0 and Core 15.81A will be bringing the ability to Purge linked Open Attach records as part of your Core Purge.  This is going to be a huge time saving update, so keep a look out for it in the near future in your system messages!

As always we would love to hear from you with your experiences and suggested improvements for the Open GI system.

Barbara Pena - Administrator

    • December 2018 Welcome to Issue No.40 First off, let's start by acknowledging what a great year it has been for the User Group.  We've improved again our relationship with the key operators within Open GI and at the same time been able to make a real difference to our Members. Our recent AGM saw us welcome in a new Vice-Chairman, Tracey Filtness of Coast Insurance.  Tracey has been on the Committee for a number of years already and her knowledge, experience and cool head under pressure will really benefit the Executive.  Full details of your Committee can be found in this Newsletter should you ever want to contact us directly! The AGM was tied into this year's Members Day which I feel was the most successful one I've been involved in so far.  Hat's off to the long suffering Barbara Pena, who once again pulled the rabbit out of the hat and chose the perfect venue for the event.  There's a recap of the day in the Newsletter, so check out what made this event so special. Also, take a moment to see the benefits of Membership, with exclusive discounts from the Open GI Sales Team.  Maybe now is the time to upgrade your system and get some advice from other Users on our Forum.  That's just another great reason to sign up for Forum Access, here. So, grab a coffee and take 5 minutes to see why being a User Group Member is so important and remember, we're here for you.    Marc Pons-Burt - National Chairman   Committee Meeting Highlights - October 2018   The Open GI User Group Committee met with Open GI Limited on the 9th October, 2018, for one of their quarterly meetings to exchange feedback and raise issues and queries.  A summary of the Minutes has been produced for your information.

    • Hi Pete,   We use Truckwriter, and it has never prompted us, they just run out !. having said that while we don't do bucket loads of CV business on EDI, majority of our providers have set the number range at 999999. Is it by any chance Aviva that needs them doing ?, as last week we had to "TRY" and update and issue some new Aviva policy numbers (first time for years) and we still are trying to sort it !, the Truckwriter POS software was confused, all messed up, Aviva didnt know how top reset using RMA commands.   And agree with Mark, it is not connected with Open Suite, it must just be a coincidence.   Happy days.  
    • Hi Pete   Don't know the specifics for TW products as I'm not a low level user operationally   I'll nudge @Philr as he is a top bloke on these things and hopefully he can clarify   PS - I'd be surprised if this is anything to do with OpenSuite as they're not related
    • Hi Guys   on PC policys  the signons will get warnings about the certs going low  giving me time to ring/email the insurers asking for release numbers  before running out.  But on TW (Truck Writer) OpenGI are saying that no warnings for certs and you will only find out when your out.  I cant remember this happening before we upgraded to 5.82  
    • You should have #96 in Prospect Control so all new prospects are checked when created.   You can also set under #97 to also check when converted.    Also, #98 is where you set how often you want prospects rechecked during batch checks.   We recheck all clients every 30 days.
