Property Management Software – Issues resolved and new features:
Novtel Property Changes
• Added the Validate Invoiced Costs feature.
This feature can be used to compare invoiced reservations to their respective customer
and supplier invoices in Pastel, and then recover additional costs from Pastel
which were unexpectedly removed in Novtel.
You can find this feature under Process -> Validate Invoiced Costs
*On the form, select which month you wish to validate. The month you select should contain
invoiced reservations and/or subhires
*Select ‘Validate Reservations’ to compare invoiced reservations to its corresponding Customer Invoices in Pastel,
and/or select ‘Validate Subhires’ to compare invoiced subhires to its corresponding Supplier Invoices in Pastel
*Check ‘Generate and Display Report’ if you would like to generate a report detailing the differences
found during the validation process.
*When a reservation number is shown in green, it means that the costs in Novtel corresponds completely
with the invoice lines in Pastel.
*When it is shown in red, it means that a difference was found which will be shown in more detail on the report
*When the Invoice Costs Validation function finds differences between Pastel and Novtel, you will be given
the option to import the missing additional costs back to the Novtel reservation/subhire.
All recovered additional costs will be recorded in the reservation’s audit log
NOTE 1: Please read the report carefully and make sure that the costs shown should really be in
the Novtel reservation and/or subhire
NOTE 2: Please be patient while this process is running. It can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes
depending on the amount of reservations in a given month as well as the size of the given Pastel company
• Fixed a spelling mistake on the Setup Documents form
• Fixed an incorrect label on the Record Maintenance form
• Updated all Pastel dll’s to the latest version and added support for Pastel 14 Partner and Express
Novtel Meter Reader Changes
• Fixed an error that occurred when you attemted to record a mutation on a new meter
• Changed the meter application to use all previous meter reading data instead of only the last 6 months’ data.
This was a problem when a meter was not used for a period longer than 6 months, and suddenly a new reading was taken.
The meter would then show no previous reading information because of the time of inactivity.
This was fixed in Novtel Meter Reader 126.96.36.199
