Amber's Tips & Tricks
Sales Transactions NOT Moving to History?

This months tip comes from our Partner Accolade Publications. On occasion, Sales Order transactions do not move to history. This typically occurs when the last remaining items ordered are cancelled or the quantity on order is reduced to zero.

CAL Support Reminder: Schedule Time-Sensitive Support

We do our best to handle support issues as quickly and efficiently as possible. We have been experiencing a large number of support calls from clients in need of immediate assistance because an outside consultant, executive or accountant is onsite that day and that day only.

We request that if you are expecting a situation like this and feel that you will need immediate access to a CAL support tech, please schedule this with us as far in advance as possible, by calling (860) 485-0910 x 3 or emailing support@calszone.com. (Please make sure you receive email confirmation).

If this is not scheduled with us in advance we cannot guarantee that the right person will be available to help you immediately. We appreciate your understanding as we strive to provide top quality support to all our clients.


Trim Your Overworked Day

Americans work more hours than anyone in the world, and the workload is taking its toll. Forty% of workers say their job is “very or extremely stressful,” according to a study by insurance firm Northwestern National Life. But many of us work more hours than we need to.

Check out USA Today’s article to find out some time-saving tips to maximize your focus and energy.
