SMOTGO January 2016 Update

SMOTGO January 2016 Update

The following changes were launched on January 29, 2016.  They have also been demonstrated in the YouTube video below.

  • The used part functionality has been removed.  This feature was not being used and was not that effective.
  • The Invoice and Estimate notes have been improved and the customer and vehicle note editing have been removed from the note tab on the invoice.
  • The major change is the adding if priorities to the jobs.  It is a best practice to present issues in a prioritized order.  The first issues that should be addressed with a customer are the ones that are their concerns.  That is what they asked for when they came in.  The next would be anything that would put the driver at risk, then the passengers, then anyone outside the vehicle.  After that is the items that may cause more damage if it is not address.  Right now beyond that are “Maintenance”, “Other”, and “Unclassified”.  If you use appointments, those items will automatically be set to “Customer’s Requests”.  Any job after that are “Unassigned”.  Changing the priorities is pretty simple and demonstrated in the video.  The jobs and recommendations are now ordered by priority.  A new estimate and invoice have been created that I believe is a bit cleaner, includes the customer address and you can include phone numbers.  The estimates and invoices also have the jobs and recommendations ordered by priority and the priority is displayed for the customer.  I’m sure you have all been asked what jobs are most important or to prioritize, now it is much easier to address that.
  • A new estimate and invoice option were added.  These are cleaner, easier to follow, The customer’s address is displayed and you can select which phone numbers to display.  These also incorporate the priorities mentioned above.

Odometer Mileage Correction Actual Mileage – SMOTGO

Question: What is the difference between the odometer, mileage correction, and actual mileage fields on the invoice?

Answer:  The odometer field is for the current odometer reading.  The mileage correction is used if the vehicle has a different number of miles on in then on the odometer.  Mileage Correction is a tool to help you better track the actual mileage on the car.  If you had a car that had the odometer replaced at 50,000 miles, you would enter 50,000 as the Mileage Correction.  Or you might have a vehicle with 50,000 miles on it that you put a used odometer in that has 75,000 miles on it.  In that case you would enter -25,000.  Actual mileage is a calculated value based on the odometer reading, adjusted by the mileage correction.  The next time the first vehicle in my example comes in and you enter the odometer reading of 60,000, you will immediately know that the vehicle actually has 110,000 miles on it.  To make it simplier to use, you can update the Mileage Correction right on the invoice and it will update the vehicle info as well.  When you are evaluating what services a vehicle needs, it is far more important to know the actual mileage on the vehicle.

Are you looking for a replacement on off switch for your Oral-B Sonic Complete Toothbrush?

My Oral-B sonic Tooth Brush switch started failing.  It would not turn on sometimes, not turn off, and eventually stopped working all together.  I searched for sometime to find a replacement switch as I had a hard time throwing away a $250.00 Tooth Brush because a small switch was bad.  It took me some time, in fact I had pretty much given up and purchased a new one.  I held on to the old one in hopes of finding a new switch.  Well, I finally found some.  I replaced my switch and the brush is working perfectly again.  I bought several and am now offering them for sale here.  I am selling them for $10.00 each.  Just use the contact form and we can make the arrangements.  This offer is totally unrelated to this site and selling switches is not my business.  This is one of my blogs and I thought there might be others looking to fix their brushes.  This may even fit other models but the one I repaired is a Sonic Complete.  The brush is very easy to take apart.  I can send you some instructions if you need them.  If you know how to solder, you can do this.  There are a few more images below.
