Insider's Usage Tip...
FLAT RATE PRICING
Dynamite 2000 now fully supports flat rate pricing and automatically reduces inventory. This new trend in pricing is easier for your customers to comprehend and accept.
For example, when you get your car serviced, do you really need to know that the mechanic is going to charge you $1.47 for each quart of oil and 22 cents for each squirt of grease? What you really care about is that the total Lube/Oil/Filter Change is going to cost exactly $17.95.
Dynamite 2000 will accept the item charge ALOF-6CYL@ and will explode it into its components: 5 quarts of 10W-30, 1 filter, 1 pint of grease, and a half hour labor. Each component's inventory is then decremented and costed. Financial reports provide profitability analysis by service order and by customer. You have the flexibility to define your own flat rate products to best suit your own business needs.
Upgrade to 5.2 to take advantage of this feature.
Visual Dispatching with MapLinx
MapLinx Corporation of Dallas, Texas has produced an affordable product that enables you to easily plot service calls on a customizable map. Dynamite 2000 now creates a ADispatched Order@ data base to be used by the MapLinx software. The map below is an example of what is possible. The software can provide zip code boundaries and display major roads. A single user version of MapLinx is available for under $100.
