• Alerts and notifications can be enabled by the user to keep track of key changes that are important to them.
• During setup, users can tailor the terminology used throughout the platform to enable local terms to be used wherever necessary.
• The highly-customisable permission management system allows detailed control over which reporting options are available to each user and in which form, and this can be changed at any time.
