Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

My Little Salesman, industry leading marketplace for buying and selling new and used trucks, trailers, and heavy equipment is pleased to announce integration with Linxworks Equipment Manager Dealer Management Software.

Inventory managed through Linxworks software automatically appears on My Little Salesman’s website for a free 90 day trial and discounted thereafter. Users interested in continuing advertising with My Little Salesman should contact Will Bowman (541-431-3079) for more information.

This is just another step in a historically successful business relationship between My Little Salesman and Linxworks, formerly Point2 Heavy Equipment software that began over 10 years ago.

Opening zipped files from Data Export or Nightly Sync Reports

6 Sep

Linxworks Manager’s DTS/data export zipped files have an extension of .dts_archive.  This was set up to overcome issues with zipped files, viruses and fire wall restrictions at some equipment dealers. To open these zipped files make sure you have unzipping software (e.g. WinZip or 7zip) installed on your computer (always check with your IT dept. before installing any software.)

 TO OPEN .DTS_ARCHIVE FILES: using WinZip as the example:

1. Open the email

2. Save the attachment to your desktop

3. Right mouse click the attachment, from the drop down Click “OPEN WITH…”

4. Choose WINZIP or WINZIP EXECUTABLE from the software list.

5. Click the check box at the bottom “Always use this program to open these files“.

6. Click OK

Once this “.dts_archive” extension is associated with WinZip, your computer will now recognize these attachments and open them automatically with a double click.

REMEMBER:  Our streamlined Linxworks Manager application system allows you to:

  • Upload your equipment listings automatically
  • Copy your equipment listings to Craigslist & eBay, as well as our syndication partners’ sites
  • View a quick spreadsheet of all your equipment listings (includes links to your photos)
  • & More

Troubleshooting 101 – the Refresh

16 Jan

When surfing Manager, UsedIron or any other web sites you visit often, your browser stores the web page in a cache so that it does not have to be downloaded every time you visit the site, making your browsing faster (this includes photos, graphics, pages you viewed, etc.)  If these pages don’t resolve / display the way your think they should…or they are just plain slow as molasses, try the following:

  • REFRESH – allows you to reload a web page where the content may have changed over time.  Click the button with the two green arrows at the end of the Address bar (usually at the top of the browser) or hit the function key F5.
  • HARD REFRESH – will bypass any cached files and display the web page as it currently appears on the site’s server. This can also be useful to clear forms and ensure that you are viewing the page as it currently appears on the site’s server. This would be common with websites that are constantly being updated (non-static sites.) The control key is held down while clicking on the refresh button or pressing F5 (CTRL F5.)

This works with most browsers like Internet Explorer or FireFox. For information on this and MANAGER tools, CONTACT US.

Upload you equipment listings automatically to MANAGER

9 Nov

Why re-enter the same equipment info over and over again? Data from your business system, a spreadsheet or even heavy equipment websites can be uploaded to MANAGER either nightly or as a one time bulk upload. Details, features, conditions, availability and even photos can be automated. Less errors and more time to sell iron. For information on this and other MANAGER tools, CONTACT US.

Copy your MANAGER listings to craigslist and ebay classifieds

17 Oct

Linxworks MANAGER gives you the tools to “copy and paste” from each listing into an ebay classified (non auction), craigslist or   Kijiji classified account.

On the Syndication tab, click SUBMIT to get a “copy” (or snapshot) of your listing, including photos.  Each corresponding SUBMIT button will format the “copy and paste” to that site.

If you sell the unit or changes are required in Linxworks MANAGER, make sure to update the classified sites too.
