Marketing/DMS Release July 12th, 2021

Updates / Features in this Release


Lead Detail Page Updates

We have updated Lead Detail page layout to make it more user friendly by organizing the lead contact and status information at the top of the lead, added in the ability to convert a lead to a customer with a click of a button and simplified the create a quote process by allowing a sales rep to be assigned and a unit of interest to be designated from the Create Quote pop-up.  Additionally, once the quote is created , the user is taken to the invoice automatically when the page refreshes.

To convert a lead to a customer,

  • Click on Convert to Customer button at the top of the lead detail page

    • The Convert a Customer button will not display on the working sales page if the lead is already associated to  a customer

  • Add additional customer information that is required to create a customer.

  • Click Save and customer record is created 

  • A System Generated Note is created detailing customer record was created by username and create date

To Create a Quote from lead detail page,

  • Click on Create a Quote at the top of the page

    • Add UOI if it is missing

Commissions - Phase 2

You can now set up and configure default Commission Types and then apply them to MU Quotes and Deals at any point. This enables you to clearly see how the commissions will impact overall deal profitability.

DX1 Commissions allow you to:

  • Set up default Commission Types for the dealership

  • Assign a Primary, Secondary and F&I Salesperson to each deal for more accurate commission reporting and deal management.

  • Automatically apply and where necessary split commissions if a default commission type is set.

  • View the estimated unit and invoice profitability with commission included.

  • Reporting after the deal has been posted.

Polaris Ride Ready Integration

Our integration with Polaris Ride Ready allows all authorized dealers to Review and Accept (or Reject) service appointments created in the Ride Ready System without leaving DX1.  

When an appointment is Accepted it automatically creates a new Work Estimate in DX1 and populates the Work Estimate with as many details from the original appointment as possible (Customer, unit, notes, labor, parts etc).

Toast Notifications Implementation

We have had a number of DX1 users point out that there are many unnecessary clicks in the DX1 work flows.

In this release we have removed a number of the Save and Refresh notifications which each required a click and have replaced them with “Toast Notifications”. Toast notifications are small messages that show up in a box and disappear on their own after a few seconds. They do not require a click and do not prevent users from moving to the next step of the workflow.

Some examples:

  • Printing invoices (require Save or Save and Refresh)

  • Requesting parts or service from a new Quote (requires a Save)

  • Going to a parts or service invoice from an MU Deal (requires a Save)
