Hello again . . . Kevin here, ModSolar’s CTO and VP of Product Development. For my second blog post, I want to tell you about another new feature that we just added to the ModSolar Platform.
We have many installers, of varying types and sizes. And we know that not all installations are the same — with residential vs. commercial vs. municipal, roof mount vs. ground mount, different panel manufacturers, different roof configurations . . . we know that “one size fits all” is not what you want to hear. And with the ModSolar Platform, it’s certainly not what you’d expect, because we make it our goal to provide you with tools that you can adapt to YOUR needs, not the other way around.
Up until now, we’ve provided you with 3 different installation schedules, one of which has automatically been chosen for inclusion in each proposal, based on the size of the PV system. The schedules reflect typical stages in the lifecycle of a project, and differ mainly in the total time: 90 days, 7 months, or 10 months.
With our latest enhancement, we now have EIGHT different schedules. We’ll still select one of the 3 original ones based on system size, but you can now OVERRIDE the choice to select ANY of the schedules — and they’re all available to match the color theme that you’ve chosen for your proposals. To change the installation schedule, just click the “Change” button on the proposal review page; you’ll see a new drop-down list where you can select one of the following schedules:
- 45 days
- 60 days
- 90 days
- 120 days
- 150 days
- 180 days
- 7 months
- 10 months
Here’s what the “Change the Proposal” window looks like, with the new drop-down list:
But that’s not all . . . you can also have your own CUSTOM schedules! You can provide us with the image(s) (one for each custom schedule option), and we’ll load them into your list, where they’ll be available EXCLUSIVELY for you. Or, tell us what you need and we can have our graphic designer create a custom installation schedule image for you, quicker than you can say “Sign here if you want to start saving money every month on your electric bill!” You can have as many custom schedules as you need, and name them anything you’d like; they’ll appear in the drop-down list, before any of the standard schedules.
We hope you like this new feature; like most of our enhancements, it was inspired by direct feedback and requests from our users.
