Another productive week

Wow.  I can’t believe that January is almost over.  The good thing is that work on the new database software for DataPro is going great – each day new features are being implemented as well as current features being upgraded for better functionality.

We have taken a lot of input from our dealers over the last year on some features as well as some functionality and I am happy to say that we are implementing almost all of them.  Some features were just not possible due to limitations of the dealers software that they are using and some other features were too specific to one dealer and would have had a negative impact on other dealers that use certain features differently.

Although we are still very much so still under development we have started to enter new data and import data from our existing database into the new system.  We are starting to beta test the data to a few dealers – we have been testing the data with imports into all the software programs in our office, but need to get some feedback from others.  Even though this data is “beta” it is ready for prime time use, the import process will take a little longer since the data fields will not be mapped to the defaults to your software program and you will need to manually map the fields when you perform an import.  All of the data currently part of the beta is Proposal Ready Data (PRD) – since we are still developing a new system for I/Os we will not be working with Engineering Ready Data (ERD) as part of the beta for now.  As we progress with the development we will start to beta the Engineering Ready Data.

If you are interested in being part of the data beta testing send an email to  Make sure to include all of your company information and contact information as well as which software you use and what version of that software you are using.

And if you have any suggestions send them to us as well.  Also what do you think about the logo for DataPro?
