Hermes Release - Spring 2015

Posted by Manuel Soto Thursday, March 19, 2015

AutoPoint Platform WheelBosch FlexInspect Integration. The main feature of the Hermes release is integration with our new partner Bosch and their FlexInspect solution. FlexInspect is a web application designed to receive the results with a number of different devices for measuring vehicle system status and condition.

  • New Results Button. A new button has been added to the toolbar called "Results" that will display the FlexInspect inspection results in your default web browser. This way a technician can review the FlexInspect results right in MultiPoint without having to log onto FlexInspect or track down the FlexInspect report.
  • Results Assign. A dropdown menu exists on the Results button with the Option to change the results set assigned to the active repair order. If fa vehicle had more than one set of results from FlexInspect, you can click Assign to select the result set you want.
  • New Customer Report Page. A new page has been developed and added to the Customer Report Editor. This page lets you include the FlexInspect results as part of your Action Plan or KYV report.
  • TreadSpec Recommendations. The Bosch results page now includes recommendations made by TreadSpec based on the tire condition. A recommendation for alignment or tire rotation may be included in the tire section of the Bosch report.
  • Battery Starting/Charging Results. The battery test results on the Bosch results page now includes information regarding the starting and charging power of the battery.

Link Photos to Recommendations. There is a new option in the Photos dialogue box that let's you assign photos to specific recommendations.

  • This feature was implemented to support OwnerCare, our new electronic recommendation approval system announced at NADA.
  • When photos are assigned to a recommendation, they appear in OwnerCare along with the articles and videos about each recommendation.

CDK Writeback Op Code Support. This change allows the advisor to add an op code by typing it in when writing lines back to the CDK DMS.

DealerTrack Writeback Fix. This release fixes the issue where the job description is being written back to DealerTrack rather than the recommendation.
