Lentune steps


Introduction

If your customers are using Fergus for job management, Lentune can be linked to their account so their payable invoices are sent automatically across. This will eliminate the need for invoices to be manually re-entered to the Fergus system, or to download the invoice file and upload it.

Fergus user step

Please refer to your Fergus support for full instructions. Here is a summary of the steps your customer using Fergus should complete:
This feature is called invoicing email ingestion.
  • In Fergus, start at Setting > Integration Centre.
In the section of standard integration, they will see your wholesaler logo.
  • Click on your logo. This opens up a landing page.
  • In the Configuration tab, they will see the toggle to turn on this feature, and once turned on, a unique email address will automatically be generated.

The customer will now need to advise you what this new email address is, so you can send their invoices to that email address.

To do this:

  • Click the send email button.

This populates the email body with the information on this new email address.

  • Now you can proceed to the Lentune steps below.
