What is VSS?
VSS utilizes FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go to allow BoatU.S. captains to fully digitalize the tow order process from beginning to end. As soon as distress calls are received, any employee has the ability to send mobile orders from the office or an iOS device to themselves or other in-field captains. The captain receives the order on an iPad and, after assisting the boater, updates and submits the order back to dispatch for final processing.

"We're excited that VSS has shown such success in the industry and we're dedicated to continuing to improve upon the solution and expand its capability and compatibility. We're committed to providing a product that is equipped to help our clients succeed and offer the ability for further customizations." Marc Larochelle, CEO, Productive Computing, Inc.
VSS QuickBooks Functionality
VSS is designed to connect with a client's QuickBooks Desktop or Online file. The solution pulls a list of items from QuickBooks that captains can use to fill out orders for services rendered. Once reviewed, cases can be pushed to a client's QuickBooks file as invoices either one at a time or in batches. When payments are applied in QuickBooks, information about remaining balances and paid on dates can be pulled into VSS. The solution includes list views and visual icons to indicate a case's status in QuickBooks Desktop or Online.
