Custom Dashboards
Use the customisation extension to define and develop your own Dashboards to deliver the analysis your business needs. (Customisation extension required)


A new era of skins
The new range of skins are replacing all previous layouts available, providing greater accessibility and support for larger screen resolutions and increased font sizes with many colour options available. We have, where possible, mapped the skin currently being used by each user and replaced it with the best matching new skin on upgrade, including where multiple skins are being used across different company databases.

Job Cost transaction line changes  
Line types for Job Cost transactions have been streamlined in the same way as other transaction areas for overall consistency. The line types now available are General Ledger (GL), Labour (LB), Inventory (IC), Creditor (CR), and Cashbook (CB). If the Type is set to CR and an item is selected from the inventory list (Item 2), the line is treated as a Job Stock (JS) line. Now, negative lines can also be added to Jobs on purchase transactions. (CR180838408)

Easily make corrections to a specific line in a processed transaction

Breakpoint extensions            
New Breakpoint extensions have been added to allow further customisation of cells on sales and purchase transactions within Sybiz Vision. These new extensions allow further control over the transactional grids such as disabling manual entry of certain cells. 
New Open/ Save dialogs           
Sybiz Vision now uses skin-based dialog windows instead of a default display when opening or saving and as a result, the dialog buttons presented when closing a form with pending changes have been altered. They are still in the same logical location/ sequence but instead of reading "Save", "Don't Save" and "Cancel" they now read "Yes", “No" and “Cancel.”
