From the Collection tools includes:
Model button – The model data includes the basic make, model, style, and colors, along with a general description. This screen is used to prepopulate other screens to reduce data entry.
History button – This screen captures the history of the asset. In most cases you will populate this with manufacturer history on perhaps the number of units produced, key features from the manufacturer, or fun facts about this particular asset. You may want to include build sheet decoding. You may also include any prominence for that car once owned by Jay Leno. And it includes a tracking of prior owners if known.
Awards button – With an acclaimed collection, you will want to track all awards received, the award class, and when and where. You can store award photos in the photo gallery for the asset.
Accreditation button – If your asset has letters of accreditation, or certifications of originality, there is a place to store that information along with the date received. Copies of accreditation can be stored as an image in the asset photo gallery as well.
Condition button - We have chosen a standard six-point rating system used by valuation guides and insurance companies. Enter your opinion of the assets condition and the App returns a full description of that condition rating.
Insurance button – Track your policy number, type and agent contact information form the insurance button. This also includes notification from the maintenance activity screen. A summary report of the asset can be exported to excel complete with stated value and a robust sampling of photos you chose. That report can then be forwarded when requested to your insurance provider. If you want a quote, you have a direct link to Hagerty, one of the nations trusted insurer of antique and classic vehicles.
Notes button - The notes button allows you to record any notes you want to associate with the asset. These notes can be captured during the project phase and transferred with the asset when it is completed and moved to the collection, or you can associate collection notes directly to any asset in your collection. These notes are complete with a title, a note field, a source, and a date.
Valuation button – Recognizing the condition rating, you can set your valuation for the asset for reporting and insurance purposes. Add in supporting text, and associate pictures in the Asset Photo gallery. We have provided a link to Hagerty’s on line valuation guide if that helps establish the value.
Title button - Track basic ownership and title data along with renewal dates. When renewal is required, the application will notify you from the maintenance activity screen, and an expired title turns the asset’s title button red as an additional reminder.
Set up a Project and access tools that include:
Budget button – When a project is created, you select an asset type (the app currently supports automobiles, motorcycles, planes, boats, bicycles, tractors, trailers, and ATVs). The application automatically loads a template for major components and their sub components. You can then edit this listing to add or delete both components and subcomponents. This sets up the structure for project management. With the structure in place, you can then develop a budget based on the component or subcomponent level. This budget will be tracked against actual expenses for labor and materials if you use those features.
Task button – planning upcoming activities allows you to plan your work and work your plan. The activities are tracked like a to do list and you can mark them as completed to take them off the list. Or you can show all tasks. This activity planning can be as detailed as you like.
Time button – I track all my time as I want to know how much time it takes me to build a motor, or steam a new bottom plank for my boat. Time tracking lets you assign time to a project, describe the activity, and assign a category and subcategory if you like. It also has a start and stop timer if you want to gather your time by task in that manner. You can export to excel a listing of time records at any time. And you can even track your fellow restorers who want to contribute their time to your project. Setting a shop labor dollar value in you or your fellow restorers user profiles calculates the value of your time and rolls your labor up to a total labor actual cost in the budget comparison.
Parts button - Identifying the parts you will require is just as important as painting parts. Building a comprehensive listing of parts to be sourced, along with the best vendor and budget price is the best way to save money on shipping and potentially receive bulk pricing discounts. This feature helps you track required parts and then export the list to excel. And you can do this from your phone while working on the project.
Invoices button – And when parts come in, track your vendor invoices and their cost components for shipping, associated vendor discounts, taxes, and deductions. Invoice totals after deductions also roll up to a total actual parts cost which is compared, along with labor, to your budget on the budget screen. All of which can be exported to excel in a detail line item report by vendor.
Notes button – The project notes button allows you to record any notes you want to associate with the asset. These notes can be captured during the project phase and transferred with the asset when it is completed and moved to the collection, or you can associate project notes directly to any project underway. These notes are complete with a title, a note field, a source, and a date.
