Next on our plate

We have a lot of irons in the fire currently and are working hard to finish up the above features as quickly as possible. After these pieces are complete our priorities become simplified and we will focus on 3 main areas:

1) Cloud Development

This is absolutely where we see are future. After Analytics and Cloud CRM, our next priorities are:

  1. Ticketing System
    • Estimating development to begin early 2024
    • This is a feature that has long been requested of iPoint
    • Cloud CRM paves the ground work for the majority of features ticketing needs (i.e. email integration), so we expect the development of Ticketing to go pretty speedily
  2. Cloud Proposals
    • Estimating Development to begin early 2024
    • This is where we plan to handle the bulk of major Proposal Feature Requests
      • Duplicate Locations
      • Flat Dollar Modifiers
      • Unlimited Customizable Modifiers
        • Able to turn on and off modifier per item or CO
        • Set cost and taxability per modifier
        • Have modifier be based on item cost instead of price
      • Revision Comparison Report
      • Enhanced Reporting Options for Optional Items
  3. Cloud Invoicing
    • Estimating Development to begin 2024

2) Enhance iPoint Performance and Simplicity

While big new modules are built in the cloud, we will focus of FileMaker developers on refining iPoint so you continue to have a better experience. We will be:

  • Reviewing our support tickets to tackle repeat issues you all face
  • Reviewing our Feature Request list for the most voted on and requested features to implement
  • Identify our slowest processes and work to increase the speed of them so you have a faster experience
  • Enhancing the Native Apps so they are a simple, fast, and effective tool for your techs to do what they need in the field
  • Review iPoint recommended processes and build them in app so it’s intuitive what next steps are so your team doesn’t have to maintain their own documentation or reach out to iPoint support for help

3) iPoint Library

  • Add and Maintaining items within the Library
  • increasing our direct vendor relationships to improve our data
  • iPoint Library Tier 3 (Add-On)
    • Engineering Data
    • Accessory Management
    • Punch Lists

The iPoint Library has been something we’ve been asked for by many dealers for years. We truly appreciate the founding dealers who helped support the development of it – thank you! We look forward to more and more dealers using the library so we can continue to expand it and meet the needs of the community!
