Concept of a Patrol Group
Patrol Groups are defined by several components. These components set rules for how the system will bill clients for the jobs performed by mobile officers.
Service Dates: Services dates can be finite or the end date can be left empty for ongoing services. This allows admins to create services groups for ongoing and temporary mobile services.
Other Charges: This allows admins to enter service charges such as fuel and other charges that cover additional costs associated with the scheduled mobile jobs.
Patrol Billing: Link the jobs of this patrol group to a contract for the site. Additionally this section allows admins to define the bill item for these jobs, set a discount (if applicable) and set the method of for charging the client. The Charge Type can be set to bill each job (contracted) or set to a flat rate (flat rate) for all jobs performed during the billing period.
Holiday Billing: If jobs that fall on holiday require a billing adjustment, this section allows admins to set the adjustment for those days.
