Finding equipment is one of the most frequently used functions of LocPlus. This feature is designed to be a powerful, flexible tool for helping you meet equipment requests from customers. This can be a simple tool that can be used quickly but at the same time is a powerful tool which you should review from time to time, so you can learn some of it's advanced functions.
Equipment is most frequently searched by equipment classification. The equipment classification search can be powerful because you can filter (or limit searches) by the size or capacity of the equipment or by who owns the equipment (i.e. is it inventory, another dealers inventory, an end user owned item, etc.)
You can also lookup equipment by Reference code, Manufacturer, and UED code. And there is also a special function to search through all your equipment for a key word anywhere in the description.
Once you find equipment that matches a customers specifications, you can review the detailed information and detailed specifications before sending them a quote.
By Classification tab (tan section):
Minimum and Maximum (Price: and other size fields):
For example, if you wanted to find all wanted requests for a 200 ton stamping presses with a 5 inch stroke, select the class and enter those sizes in the size boxes. A wanted request for a 200 to 250 ton stamping press with a 3 to 5 inch stroke would match the request. If ANY of the specifications doesn't match, the request will not be displayed. (i.e. a request for a 200 to 250 ton press with a 6 to 8 inch stroke would not be included)
BUTTON: 'Search Now':
BUTTON: 'Print Report':
BUTTON: 'New inventory':
By UED / Mfg tab (tan section):
Under this tab you can select equipment by either or both of these features. For example, if you enter in both a UED code and a Manufacturer, then when you press the 'Search Now' button requests that meet both criteria will be displayed. The company requirements displayed under the 'Search from:' heading are also incorporated into these searches. See the explainations for these fields as they are the same on the 'By Classification' tab.
Search options TAB:
You may set the Maximum number of records. Do not set this too high as it will reduce performance. You may also have LocPlus MLS automatically perform a search when the classification is changed by checking the box labeled 'Search Immediately after changing class'.
Changing these options will only be temporary unless you also press the button labeled 'Update default options for XXXX only'. (Your search from ownership options will be saved also.)
Wanted Request Details TAB:
Tnis tab does not perform a search. This tab shows shows some of the information for the machine requests found. After the wanted requests are displayed on the bottom half of the window and a request is displayed, other info fields are displayed in this tab.
