To accurately capture the details we recommend scanning the Drivers Licence as a minimum and where possible a Business Card.
A lookup function is available to search for existing customers, for returning address details, and if the customer's postal address is different to the physical address, this can be entered here.

6. Confirm Custom and Click Add

To proceed to the next step click on the red 'ADD' button at the bottom of the screen.  As it is so important to maintain a clean and tidy database, if you have not already run a customer search, the system will automatically run one and let you know if their are similar customers already in the database, and if so provide an opportunity to update any details that may conflict with the info just captured.
