New features in HireTrack NX

To keep HireTrack NX at the forefront of rental management software we are constantly monitoring how the production industry is changing and listening to our customers about how their businesses adapt. We regularly update our software to respond to these industry developments by adding new features and enhancements. This page is generated automatically from our development schedule, and as such publishes all the significant improvements to HireTrack NX since its release.

HireTrack NX version 3.1.254.x release scheduled 28 February 2018
Equipment List – Option to preserve line discounts that deviate from the global discount when setting new target price/discount [1,868]

NX now introduces this as a Rule that is then copied to the Equipment List header to give full control over how line discounts are affected by global discount changes.

Configuration Book – Email Templates. Make is possible to DELETE and RENAME templates. [2,180]

As well as introducing these improvements, the editing of Email Templates have other refinements to make the process more intuitive.

Equipment List Editor – Pricing dropdown needs a user confirmation to change because all the pricing on the list is affected [2,973]
Warehouse Activities – Add traffic light indicators to lower grid to make it easier to see the Prep progress of specific lists [3,124]
Operation Note – Option to show the text of Eqlist Notes by clicking on column header. Option should be “sticky” [3,227]
Sales Lists – Cost of sale fields added and populated for profitability statistics [3,233]


The above fields are only populated if new Rule RentalCostsAsMisc is turned off. In other words, both Rental and Sales costs will be written to Misc Costs if RentalCostsAsMisc is on; if RentalCostsAsMisc is off then both Rental costs (Prep and Usage cost) and Sales Costs are written to Eqlist.Costs and the three new Jobs costs fields.

Equipment List Editor – option to Ignore Late Returns to remove “shortages noise” [3,238]

If equipment is back but not checked in, the Late Returns component of the available checking algorithm can make a list going out TODAY look far worse than it is for shortages. Option to ignore Late Returns removes any contribution officially overdue kit is making to availability.

Availability GANTT chart. Add option to force Late Returns entries to appear towards the bottom of the chart [3,239]

It can be tedious to scroll past loads of these to get to lists that are coming up.

Global Returns – Option for “Single Stage Only” procecessing [3,241]

When this option is checked a barcode will only be Returned, not Returned and Checked In. This allows system to know that it’s back via a fast “scan of the truck”, and a proper Check In can take place later.

Repair Module – barcode scanning support introduced to find and create repairs [3,242]
Late Returns – Return All. Skip Barcoded checked by default and confirmation feedback for including scanned items. [3,248]

Helps to prevent user unwittingly returning stock that should be properly checked with a scan.

Prep Subhires and Loans: Flexible Roadcasing option displays non subhired/loaned roadcases and allows roadcase additioni [3,250]

With “Flexible Roadcasing” turned on Prep Subhires and Loans will see roadcase types that have been booked on a list without the need to subhire or loan them. Moreover, any scanned and “auto-added” roadcases will appear too. This allows subhires to be allocated to in-house roadcases.

Prep Notes – Case Code drop down combo boxes also list case IDs that have been assigned to other Prep Notes for a list [3,251]

Thus making it easier for a subhire to be put into a roadcase that had processed on a Prep Local note. All roadcases on an equipment list are available to be selected.

Equipment List Security – two new options to control who can edit Price Locking [3,257]

“Price Lock My Jobs Only” – users can only edit if they created the job
“Price Lock Any Job” – users can edit any job

If neither options are selected then no editing at all is possible.

Database lookups maintenance – improved performance by factor of five [3,252]

Will be particularly noticible when bulk updates on “register tables” like Hetype.nx1, Company.nx1 etc.

Job and Global Loans – requirement to be able to loan Consumables, particularly when some Rental equipment supplied with them [3,254]
Inventory Book – Barcodes page. Display the last stock check “seen” date with user that did scan [3,260]
Inventory Book – Barcodes page. Move details to right hand panel and display barcodes in simple grid on the left [3,261]

Makes it easier to scroll through multiple barcodes

Inventory Book – Keep Items page and Types page in sync on equipment type if Items page has no filters or just a Type filter [3,263]

So when going to the Items page, if there is no filter set or there is an active Equipment Type, set the filter to be the same as the current type on the Types page; similarly, if the Type filter is active on the Items page, then keep the Types page in sync

Inventory Book – Keep “Manage Barcodes” tab in sync with Equipment Type filter on the “Barcodes List” tab [3,264]

If filtering by a type then going to “Manage Barcodes” already selects this type.

Equipment List – warehouse menu options moved to “Quick Warehouse” main menu to make functionality more obvious to users [3,277]
Job and Global Subhires – Extend “Quick Warehouse” operations to include subhires [3,278]
Equipment List editor – security option to hide pricing information from users [3,279]

‘Display Equipment List Pricing’ option added to User security. If turned off, not only is all pricing information turned, but operations that can affect pricing like changing dates are turned off.

This option designed to facilitate the new “Quick” warehousing options introduced in release 3.1.240.x

Emailing – Incoming emails now tracked by HireTrack and automatically matched to email addresses and outgoing emails. [3,280]

Makes HireTrack NX a one stop shop for managing all correspondence about a job.

Help and Support are – option to upload data to support from the System Info page [3,283]

More convenient and less technically demanding than doing this task from the server. Also gets around problem of the file server desktop not being available to many users.

Warehouse Book – New “Quick Operations” page added, giving simplified view of equipment list a customizable search form [3,286]

Levering the power of the in built generic “search form”, numerous “views” of equipment lists that need processing can be displayed. Users can then quickly open a list and use the new “Quick Warehouse” menu to process various operations.

Warehouse Book – extra “Overdue” tab added to Activities area (now renamed as Advanced Operations) [3,287]

Warehouse Activities (renamed as “Advanced Operations”) now has three tabs: Pending, Overlooked, Overdue. The new “Overdue” gives an advance access to ALL late returns, rather than those up to just 7 days late on the Pending tab (needed for optimum performance)

Equipment List – New grid added to header displaying the progress of warehouse operations and all the warehouse operation notes [3,288]

Gives better oversight over what has been done for warehousing operations, particularly for users wanting to use the new “Quick Warehousing” facilities.

Reporting – Re-introduction of quick outputs to file for email, clipboard and export facilities from the print preview [3,304]
Equipment List Editor – Unit Price column. Add button to give use the option to reset the Unit Price to the default for type [3,305]

“All Users” vs “Selected Users” added to the “Select Permitted Users…” drop down.

Allows for quicker navigation in the program.

Stock Check – Summary Page. Barcodes list to show “In Repair” for Last Seen if item has been “seen” while in repair bay [3,319]

Helps user to understand why a stock checked item is still not on the shelf.

Sage UK 50 Accounts Integration. New “system” QBEs installed, along with a new version of the Sage Connection DLL [3,324]
Returns and Check Ins – expose the Sections filter [3,325]

Helps users work on specific areas of a return.

Operations Note – make Composite masters and Priced Aliases more salient by displaying in bold and with deeper colour indicator [3,332]

Master lines are now displayed in bold and with a darker indicator colour.

Operations Note – Introduce a “Select” column so that users can process a specific batch of items in a single go [3,333]

As an alternative to entering the Quantity against each line processed (e.g Prepped), users can use the selected column to specify which lines have been completely processed. A “Process Selected” button then operates on those lines.

MagicKeys – prevent user from “un-highlighting” the data in supported controls by single clicking in the editor to set a cursor [3,334]

If the user does this then “listening” apps cannot retrieve data from the control.

Stock Check – if a stock check is active then when “On Job” items are Returned create a “seen” stock check record [3,335]

Although items on jobs are accounted for ins the Stock Check figures, when these are returned users are obliged to add these to the Stock Check in order to be considered seen. Automating this process saves time and removes the possibility of omission errors.

Inventory ROI Page – Excel export to include Site name in the file name [3,338]

Exported data is now easier to reference.

Equipment List – Movement grid, Barcodes popup form. Display the user that scanned the barcode [3,339]

Offers a quick way to “no quote” for all your Crew or Transport.

Inventory Book – ROI tab. Daily Usage graph added [3,346]

The inventory book now displays a graph showing daily rental and subhires usage for the “Get Usage By Day” function.

Allows the good scans to just go through so that problems can be looked at later.

Popstock – set the Smart Search box as the active control with blinking cursor in it so users can start typing straight away [3,368]

By checking for a control character, such as Ctrl + B, HireTrack NX can now automatically focus the barcodeeditor and get it ready for accepting the remainder of the scanned barcode.

Warehouse Book – Late Returns page. Add facility to bulk return all records in the grid. [2,981]
