In this newsletter we inform you about upcoming April’s release and the change in company name from 1st of May 2013.
Release content (release date 18th of April 2013)
- Out of office -activities such as holidays are shown directly on work hour entry page (day view).

New version of Proposal add-on
With Proposal add-on user can create proposals directly with Severa.
Proposal tool is getting a complete re-design. Re-design is taking care of most known issues:
- Allow using proposal as estimate, quote, purchase order or sales order.
- Do not lock case that has a proposal.
- Don't show proposal data in reports as actual costs or uninvoiced before it's accepted.
- Allow case to have more than one proposal.
- Support proposal's partial acceptance.
- Support value based pricing, i.e. hide quantity and unit price or even individual rows that add up to a subtotal (e.g. hours or estimated supplier costs).
- Use a real template behind the proposal that can include proposal rows.
Pilot version with known issues was release in April. Before going live with this for all customers, we'd like your feedback. We know that there's bound to be something that we haven't considered. Contact our customer service if you are interested in trying it already in April and May. A commercial version that's available for all customers will follow in June 2013 release.

Visma Severa Oy’s name and VAT number change from 1st of May 2013
Visma Severa Oy’s name will change as part of corporate restructuring. The merger of Visma Severa Oy (VAT FI18712620) into Visma Solutions Oy (VAT FI19675438) will become effective from 1st of May 2013. Visma Severa as a product name will remain to be used in our service and marketing.
The name change is related to restructuring that begun earlier 2013 when Netvisor Oy changed its name to Visma Solutions Oy. With combined knowledge the new company provides leading solutions for financial management and project business management. “For our customers the combination will result in improved and wider offering” says Ari-Pekka Salovaara, former Managing Director of Visma Severa Oy and future Managing Director of Visma Solutions Oy.
