Shop Flag Notifier 1.0

 The Shop Flag Notifier provides visual and audio notifications triggered by changes to shop flags. Ideal for parts departments wanting notifications for parts-related flag changes.

Once minimized, it runs as a small icon in the bottom right-hand side of your computer’s taskbar. Right-clicking the icon will allow you to change the application’s settings or exit the application. Configurable options include selecting only the flags for which you want notifications, the sound the notification plays when it pops up, and the length of time for which the notification stays on your screen.

Downloading Instructions

Click on the Download link to download and install Shop Flag Notifier. Once the installation completes, a shortcut to launch the application will exist on your computer’s desktop as well as in the Start Menu. When the application is launched the user will be presented with the settings screen. At that point, select your shop, select the flags you want to receive notifications for, then set any additional options as desired. Once the settings are saved, the application will minimize and run in your computer’s system tray (bottom right-hand side). Double-click the icon to open the settings dialog, or right-click the icon for other options.

ShopWatch

AutoPoint’s ShopWatch technology is tightly integrated with the Appointment system. ShopWatch is designed to take shop efficiency to a whole new level, which results in fewer carryovers, improved CSI, and increased customer retention.

Many unhappy customers come from dealerships who can't deliver the vehicle at the promised time due to accidental overbookings. Which is why properly loading your incoming work into the shop is so important. AutoPoint's strategic shop-loading algorithm automatically takes into account the number of technicians, their work hours, and your shop's technician efficiency while also accounting for your average walk-in traffic and daily upsells. You'll never have to worry about overselling or underselling any given workday.

ShopWatch technology allows your appointment-setting staff, including advisors, BDC members, and appointment coordinators, to visualize how full each workday and week is at a glance, ensuring your shop's load is properly scheduled to fit its true capacity.

Minimum Requirements Checklist

AutoPoint’s MultiPoint platform uses cloud-based services to provide data to AutoPoint clients. The system therefore relies on the customer infrastructure and internet connection for good performance results. Sub-standard internet connections or network traffic issues can cause slowness and disconnect issues for one or all connected clients. To ensure acceptable client performance, you need to meet the following minimum baselines.

Websites

The following ports and URLs must also be whitelisted on the dealership firewall. We have also found these exceptions need to be entered into your Anti-Virus software to ensure no performance impact occurs. (many Anti-Virus software will perform “deep packet” sniffing on the AutoPoint web-based communication that can slow down the performance):

Ports:

80 and 443

INTERNAL NETWORK:

100 Mbps minimum network speed

1.5 Mbps or greater minimum internet speed. For dealerships with over 10 users, use the following formula: .12 x number of users = megabits per second of needed bandwidth. Less than 150 ms ping times from each client to our cloud servers. (app.autopoint.com)

Wireless Network

For WelcomePoint users: WIFI is a requirement at the same bandwidth and speed requirement stated above, with connectivity available in the entire service department area, including the entire perimeter of the outdoor service drive, which is where the application is primarily utilized.The WIFI network must be dedicated strictly to the use of WelcomePoint and must have at least medium connectivity strength in all areas of use to optimize performance and reliability of the application.

Please refer to in-house IT resources to validate the performance of your WIFI network; they will be your primary contact.

Should your dealership not have an in-house IT resource, AutoPoint has prepared instructions to validate connectivity strength and speed of the network:

For Android and iOS users:

The App ‘Network Analyzer Pro’ is an easy to use and sufficient network-testing app for performing speed and signal strength tests on your drive.  It does come with a $3.99 cost but a primary resource at your dealership could find it invaluable for other troubleshooting.

For Windows Tablet users:

The app called ‘Wifi Tool’ (also available for Android) is an easy to use and sufficient network-testing app for performing speed and signal strength tests on your drive. It does come with a $2.49 cost but a primary resource at your dealership could find it invaluable for other troubleshooting.

    Can I run MultiPoint in multiple instances on one computer?

    One of my ROs disappeared from my active list.

    Check the ‘Inactive ROs’ list to see if it was closed or inadvertently ‘checked’ as closed.

    Note – checking the box in the far left column will drop it from your list, but not everyone else’s list in the service department.

    The Pop up screen for an RO# disappeared.

    If the ‘Pop-up’ was set by the employee Tools > User Preferences > Notification > Enable Pop-up It has a variable setting for how long the pop-up appears.
