Ability to Import PDFs into PowerClaim
Any PDF document can be quickly imported into PowerClaim XML and wrapped into reporting. The possibilities are endless, as many documents today are more than likely generated in the popular PDF format.
New Backup Utility
Anyone who has experienced a data loss understands the importance of backing up data. With our new backup utility, you can hand-pick what is backed up or do a full-scale backup, schedule backups easier and even save your information directly to a CD.
The addition of an advance payment field allows you to denote the payment in the claim file and choose to include it on your reports.

Depreciation is a hot topic in the industry. Eliminate any disputes over your estimates on trade depreciation with the new ability to apply depreciation directly to trades.

Multiple Invoices for one Claim
Many of our users requested the ability to create multiple invoices for one claim. We took that request and went one step further. Not only are you able to create multiple invoices per claim, but you also now have an sophisticated payment structure. Show and track multiple payments for your multiple invoices, including partial payments and still due amount.
