Customisable Information Panel
The Information panel (accessed by pressing F9) is now fully customisable. Users can add or remove fields and even create a tabbed window.

Posting receipts and payments for jobs straight from cashbook

Custom Pivots support drill-down to underlying data
Custom pivots are a flexible way to look at data in Sybiz Vision, turning your data into valuable information. The pivots are now even more powerful with the added ability to drill down into individual lines.
