Quantrac attends Carriers 2004 National Convention
Jan. 2004- The Carrier 2004 National
Dealer Convention took place at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las
The Carrier show was a huge success. Carrier executives estimated that
4,500 dealers and their guests attended the show. The Quantrac booth was
nearly overwhelmed with interested dealers that want to either computerize
their offices or move from other brands of software to Quantrac 2004 HVAC
Office. 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 2004, Release 8.0 is complete and ready for delivery!
December 2003- We have completed the
programming, debugging, and testing HVAC Office R8.0. You will enjoy the
following changes, additions, and new features of our highly-respected
On-line Knowledge Base
October 2003-Quantrac Corporation is committed to providing our
customers with both the information and the tools for a timely resolution
to any technical computer-related issues that may involve the ease and
reliability of operation of Quantrac 2000 / HVAC Office. 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. At any time if you
cannot find a resolution to your issue, or simply would rather communicate
directly with one of our representatives, don't hesitate to contact Technical
Support by clicking on the Quantrac Live Support Icon at www.quantrac.com;
or by calling our support center at (972) 271-6898. We are dedicated to
helping you whenever you have the need.
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. In addition to
providing a convenient source for technical support and answers to questions,
it eliminates the time & money that might be spent on long distance
telephone calls. By introducing this enhanced on-line live one-on-one
Web chat option, Quantrac now provides a convenient choice that simplifies
access to technical support answers, tips, and instructions. 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

own Flat Rate pricing structure and to publish price books based on the
actual costs of providing services. This new feature can be used stand-alone
or can be completely integrated within Quantrac 2000 HVAC Office. This
Flat Rate pricing program is already in successful operation at many of
our client dealerships.
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.
Corporate Name Change
July 28, 1997-Quantum Data Systems, Inc., creators of HVAC

heating and air conditioning dealerships that wish to computerize their
businesses without having to invest in software designed for larger companies.

efficiently including Customer and Jobsite management, Service Call tracking,
Equipment logging, and Warranty tracking. In addition SuperLite can be
upgraded to any of our other HVAC Office software versions, including
the Professional version at any time.
