• Added the Validate Invoiced Costs feature.
This feature can be used to compare invoiced reservations to their respective customer

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

depending on the amount of reservations in a given month as well as the size of the given Pastel company

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 1.2.0.2
