At least two dozen current enthusiastic users also visited the booth to either help explain the software or to view the latest Release.

"In over ten years of attending trade shows, this Carrier 2004 dealer show was the best I've ever seen", said Ken Ridout, President of Quantrac Corporation.

We are pleased to present our new On-line Knowledge Base, which implements a process that integrates knowledge management into our overall work flow. The Solutions have been created through technical support working with customers over many years to resolve their issues. This On-line knowledge base is in addition to our ongoing technical support sources.

Quantrac 2000 Version 8.0 Release Update

September 2003-The EIGHTH release of HVAC Office is almost complete. This release includes a parts inventory package, giving users the ability to create PO's for parts purchases and track the order to completion. The parts quantities will be maintained in Quantrac until adjusted or sold via an invoice. This is a very complicated function (both in real life and computerized). We are working to make it as easy, simple, and user-friendly as possible.

When is Release 8 going to be released? Well, software takes four times the amount of expected labor before release. Then, the manual has to be completed to match the operating system. With that in mind, we are hoping for a release date within the next couple of months. Check back here for updates. We are working very hard to keep your software ahead of the competition.

New On-line Technical Support Service

March 2003-A new FREE on-line technical support option for Quantrac Customers is up and running on our website.

As a result of this new free support option, the majority of all issues are resolved the first time a customer contacts a Quantrac support technician, with the remainder escalated to priority support for resolution. Technical support on-line adds a completely new dimension to customer support and provides our technical representatives operating the service with greater awareness of the needs of Quantrac customers which widens their knowledge base." The new on-line technical support service complements the existing telephone support service. Both are manned by our technical staff which operates reliably during our normal office hours. We are proud of our technical support staff and their reliable service to our customers

Quantrac 2000 Version 6.1

July 1998-Designed exclusively for Windows 95/98/NT, version 6.1 takes the next generation of HVAC Office to new heights in performance and reliability. Incorporating more than 50 enhancements and bug fixes, HVAC Office 6.1 will surely keep Quantrac Corporation on the forefront of contractor specific office management software.

Using Microsoft Access 97 as the database engine, HVAC Office is now able to offer dealers the features that they have been waiting for such as lightning speed, an improved interface to 32-bit Windows operating systems such as Windows 98 and NT, and Internet connectivity.

Users will be able to see speeds increase by as much as 30% on some functions over previous versions of the software. Intensive reports and other functions, which used to consume the processor to complete, are now completed much quicker. Additionally, networked computers should notice a speed increase. The server computer, now with more time to process these functions, should respond much more efficiently to network requests.

HVAC Office 6.1 is now available for all new customers. Current HVAC Office users will be upgraded to the pure Windows 95 program later this summer.
