Material Shortage



The materials shortage is set to continue and prices could continue to rise. These shortages will likely lead to construction delays and could affect small companies, self-builders, and renovators. Not only is lumber in short supply but we are now seeing a shortage of steel, cement, roof tiles, electrical components, paint, and plasterboard. Some manufacturers are weeks and even months out on supplies. Builders and contractors looking for ways around this problem might try substituting materials if possible or adding higher costs for the materials in their budget. If you’re planning on a DIY project or renovation this summer plan as far as you can in advance so you aren’t caught by surprise with shortages and price increases.

OnRivet Updates



OnRivet is excited to announce that bills and purchase orders are no longer linked together. You can create them independently. Purchase orders are the first step in business transactions. Po’s are documents sent from you, as the buyer, to a supplier with a request for products or services as an order. The invoice is a bill issued by the seller when that product has been delivered or the service has been completed. As you can see in the picture below there are two separate tabs for purchase orders and bills. We hope this will help your business run smoother and be easier to use. If you have any questions or need help with our new updates feel free to contact us at info@onrivet.com.
