We’re always pushing the envelope in dealership operations and efficiency, looking for ways to help dealerships take advantage of the latest technology. DX1 is adding to its arsenal by giving dealers an improved way to access the platform. Introducing the new DX1 Windows 10 App! The DX1 app is easy to install from the Microsoft app store and it’s free for all DX1 customers.
Dealers will experience improved speed and performance as well as enhancements only available through the DX1 Windows 10 App. The app provides an optimal user experience by utilizing the full screen display since it doesn’t need to account for browser framework.
Oftentimes, browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari contain unnecessary add-ons that can slow performance and cause challenges for dealers. The Windows 10 app isn’t affected by browser add-ons or versions - it will automatically update to the latest browser version available.
It can also be very time-consuming to install technology platforms on multiple computer stations throughout a dealership. The set-up process for the Windows 10 App is much faster because it pre-checks the system for hardware/software requirements before allowing the app to launch. The app will check the computer system to ensure all requirements are available - if not, the app will alert the dealer as to what requirements are missing before it will enable the app. Dealers only have to install the app once, and it will automatically update as features and enhancements are added.
One of the top features the DX1 Windows 10 App offers is improved microfiche integration with partners like ARI Parts Smart, HLSM, Parts Manager Pro, Yamaha and Honda. Dealers can select any part that’s accessible in DX1 and see the quantity, bin location and cost in real-time!
Label printing through the DX1 app is easier and faster than ever – dealers can print 100+ labels in matter of seconds thanks to preloaded data and PDF presets. We have also improved printer set-up support for dealers’ current hardware - receipt printers, thermal label printers.
In addition to various receipt and label printers, the app will assist in the installation of supported pole displays. Certain states require dealers to show the customer each item being purchased. The Windows 10 app will utilize large screens on Verifone terminals to support line item display so no additional screens are necessary.
The Windows 10 App will be the method dealers use for the industry’s only Verifone EMV chip card compliant credit card processing integration. The Verifone terminal will utilize the Windows 10 App to process secure, EMV-compliant credit card transactions. The DX1 platform is the first in the powersports industry to offer EMV technology to dealerships, partnering with MIC’s BankCard Program. Verifone’s first EMV hardware/software platform customized for a specific industry is an important step for our industry, as it helps to protect dealerships against the liability for any fraudulent chip card transactions. This is paramount as it becomes increasingly important for dealers to secure their transactions and customer data.
We encourage our customers to visit the Microsoft store and install the Windows 10 app to take advantage of the many benefits the app offers.
