)-- “When it comes to the Parts department, it’s all about making the information easy to access,” explained Tom Edwards. “Users told us they wanted fewer keystrokes, screens and simplified navigation so we delivered.”
The expanded Partview Pro is the result of working with parts managers over the last 15 years. By adding user requested items such as “Quick list” icons, and a menu tree to the main screen, navigation has been simplified. To meet the needs of the broad spectrum of users, care was taken to include both ‘point and click’ and keyboard navigation throughout the Windows-based application.
Two additional examples of user requested tools include telephone number reverse look up (which allow new customers to be added in seconds) and electronic signature capture at the wholesale counter. Another example of a powerful tool that is now included in PartView Pro is the latest generation of the ACCESS Report Generator. This allows the Parts Manager to quickly and easily build and save custom reports which can be exported to Excel.
PartView Pro includes interfaces for most manufacturers’ parts ordering software and parts catalogs, Mitchell 1 estimating, as well as part masters. Part inquiries can be pushed to an RO, invoice or saved as a quote with ease.
As with all the other ACS applications, history is retained forever.
Dealership to customer communication is improved by including an email interface. This allows quotes, invoices, and special order notifications to be emailed with minimal effort.
The expanded PartView Pro is a free upgrade for ACS ACCESS DMS dealerships. PartView Pro wraps up the complete transformation of the ACCESS DMS to its new easy-to-use format.
ACS will be at booth 1906S at the San Francisco NADA Convention
