fitting measurementsDid you know that in Cyclo, you can record your customers measurements, and fitting details, allowing for fitting of every bike the customer owns, and linking to any job ticket that the bike fitting is booked in for.

What this means is your customers fitting and measurement details are always there, at a single press, for your staff to see and use.

This feature allows you to take your customer service to the next level, with the customer not needing to be ‘fitted’ every time they book their bike in.

The measurements and fitting details are on the customer details page, on the right hand side under measurements. You can also access this area directly from the sale, when booking in a job. Simply click on the job to bring up the work order popup, select the workorder tab and select ‘customer fit’.
