The latest release to the Autosoft Sales and F&I application is now available. It contains the following enhancements.
Sales and F&I Sales Users Can Now Filter the Deal Search Table by VIN
Benefit: Empowers users to quickly find a specific deal in the Deal Search Table
Details: The Deal Search table in Sales and F&I is now equipped to filter by VIN. That means that users can simply enter a VIN in the Vehicle Info field, and the Deal Search table will filter out all deals that don't match that VIN. Users can enter either the full VIN, or a partial VIN. Sales and F&I will recognize the VIN if you enter the last 6 or 8 digits.
Sales and F&I Sales and F&I Payment Value Increased to Six Digits
Benefit: Allows users to view deal payments over $99,999.
Details: On the Desking page, the deal Payment field has been modified to allow six digits (not including decimals). Previously, the Payment field only allowed values up to five digits. That means that you could only enter payments that maxed out at $99,999. But now dealerships can enter payments up to than $999,999.
Sales and F&I Users Can Now Minimize Sales Graphs on the Sales Dashboard
Benefit: Allows user to hide Sales graphs and focus on Deal Search.
Details: The Sales Graphs card now includes a caret that the user can click to hide the Sales Graph. When you click on the caret, The Sales Graphs card will collapse and the Alerts window and Sales and Lost Sales graphs will be hidden. The Deal Search card will move higher on the page. Click the caret beside Sales Graphs again to open the Sales Graphs card.
Sales and F&I Assessment Value Field Removed from Selling Price Card
Benefit: Dealerships Only Need To Enter Base Selling Price
Details: Previously, Georgia law figured the tax for a used vehicle based on its assessed value rather than the sales price of the vehicle. On January 1st, 2020, they revoked that law and now tax is calculated based on sales price, not assessed value. In Sales and F&I, that means that the Assessment Value field on the Selling Price card has been removed. Now, when desking a deal, you’ll only see the Base Selling Price value.
Sales and F&I Taxable Front Adds Now Listed When Vehicle Price Is Negative (Pennsylvania Only)
Benefit: Displays a Simpler Tax Lets Pennsylvania Dealerships View Front Add Price When Vehicle Price Is Negative
Details: For Pennsylvania dealerships, when a vehicle trade allowance is larger than its selling price, causing a negative vehicle tax, the front option tax will be included in the overall Vehicle Tax on the Financed Taxes card.
