Concierge Option Is Announced
     The new ReloSpec Concierge option will be available beginning in February.  This new option will allow you to track requests for Concierge services for clients in the ReloSpec Referrals table. 
     For example, let's say a client contacts you and needs a plumbing service.  Using the Concierge option you may select up to 5 suggested vendors to fill the need.  You simply select the vendor(s) and click the 'Send Email' button on the Concierge page.  An email is automatically sent to each of the vendors with the client contact information along with the needs detail.  In addition, an email is sent to the client with a list of the vendors you suggested.  And, a note is added to the Notes table documenting all that was done.
     There are also forms and reports associated with the Concierge option that allow you to track what vendors are being selected and the feedback from the client regarding the service.
     The introductory cost of the Concierge option is $199 during February 2009 and $249 beginning in March 2009.  To see a demonstration of the Conceirge option click the 'Concierge Option' in the Training Videos page (ReloSpec Main Menu, Training Videos) or register for the Web Seminar
    
New Cartus Forms Available
     Five new Cartus Affinity forms are now available for Cartus members.  These are the new forms announced by Cartus Broker Services this month.  They do not replace the previous forms which are scheduled to be available until the end of March 2009.  All new Cartus forms appear in the ReloSpec FORMS page and begin with "Cartus New Affinity...".  There is a new Training video that demonstrates the use of the Cartus forms, and is available on the Training Videos page.

Updated Training Videos and Web Seminars
     Between now and February 6th, several new Training Videos and a few updated ones will be available for viewing.  The Training Videos are a good way to see short videos on specific ReloSpec topics and are available at no charge 24 hours per day.  If you haven't seen any of the videos, be sure to check them out beginning in February.  A complete list of available videos is on the page.  From the ReloSpec Main Menu, click the 'Training Videos' link, then click on video of your choice.
     In addition to the Training Videos you may register for upcoming Web Seminars, which are 30-minute seminars with a live host on specific ReloSpec topics.  Seminars are typically held on Tuesdays at 11:00AM Central time and Thursdays at 1:00PM Central time.  You must register in advance for the seminar, and there is no charge to attend.  We encourage all ReloSpec users to attend as many as you find helpful.  A complete list of Web Seminars is available online.  From the ReloSpec Main menu, click the 'Web Seminars' link, then click to register for the seminar(s) of your choice.
Adding Multiple Email Addresses in ToDo Page
     Now it is easier than ever to add multiple email addresses in the ToDo page.  From the ReloSpec Referrals List page click the 'ToDo' link on the left side, then if needed, click the ADD NEW button to add/edit a ToDo item.  You'll notice on the right side of the page there are buttons with labels for the various email addresses you may want to insert.  In the past, if you clicked more than one button, the email address would be replaced by the latest one clicked.  Now, you may click for multiple email addresses that get inserted for you automatically.  This makes it much easier and faster to enter the desired email addresses in the ToDo page.
Export Records to Profit Power
     Are you currently looking for a way to get data from the ReloSpec Referrals table into your Profit Power accounting software?  It is now possible to export individaul records directly to Profit PowerAfter receiving numerous requests for this service, we can now provide it for a minimal ($140) setup charge. 
    Once the option is in place you will be able to select a record in ReloSpec, enter the closing information in the Closing page and when you click the UPDATE button the record will automatically be inserted into your Profit Power database. 
     Please let us know if you are interested in the Profit Power export feature.
