If you work at a dealership
that uses Reynolds and Reynolds ERALink ® you are, no doubt,
frustrated that you can't import customer and vehicle information into
your estimating system. You have to type everything, and if the customer
is new to the dealership, you have to type it all twice.
Those days are now over. I
finally got fed up wasting time retyping information and wrote this
software. Reynolds Converter allows you to download administrative
information from your Reynolds and Reynolds server right into your
estimating system. With just a few mouse clicks you'll be writing your
estimate instead of filling in the customer's name, address, VIN etc...
only works with Pathways ®.
Reynolds Converter is very
easy to use. First, you click a button on your ERALink ® toolbar. You
enter the last 6 digits of the VIN and all the information is extracted
from your Reynolds server. Next, you double click a button on your desktop
and all this information is transferred to Pathways ®. Now you click the
New Estimate button in Pathways ® and then click the Create w/ Prior
button, type the first few letters of the customer's last name, choose the
customer from the list on the left and the vehicle from the list on the
right. Finally, click the Use Customer/Vehicle button and your
administrative pages are filled. You'll still have to click the Decode VIN
button like you have to whenever you use an existing customer. The only
manual entries you'll need to make is the insurance information, the
mileage, production date and the state of license.
Reynolds Converter is a big
time saver, and it makes your estimates look more professional. If you're
like me, you are probably just entering the customer's name and the
vehicle information. With Reynolds Converter, all the other information
will also be filled in.
