security is very comprehensive. It consists of System Sign-On
security as well as security for each module. For example,
users are granted access to each module by the Admin User.
Additionally, each user is assigned access rights to each module
based upon their needs or job functions. There are five
security levels that can be assigned for any given module.
- Prevents a user from accessing or viewing a form, applied when
Read access is not active
Allows users to view the form, but not change any data
Allows users to view and update data, but not add new records or
Allows users to view, update and add data
Allows users to delete data
each user to provide a userid and password for system sign on.
The system security prevents unauthorized users from accessing your
critical business data and also ensures system users only gain
access to those modules and associated data that you authorize.
there is a console lock feature that can be setup to secure the
PowerPro application after a certain period of inactivity or upon
user request. For example, when the F&I Manager, or your
A/R person leaves their office, instead of having to shutdown
PowerPro, they can simply click a button to lock their PowerPro
console, preventing anyone from gaining access to their terminal and
accessing confidential information. In essence, you can take
comfort in knowing your business data is secure.
Here is the
Security form where each user's specific access rights are assigned:
You can also
setup and assign access rights by functional groups when you have a
large user base.
The Admin user
(shown above) is the only user that can assign access to the various
system functions. In other words, only the Admin user can open
the User Access Rights form to grant and revoke user
privileges. Also, you can disable the logon capability for any
user, except for the Admin userid. This comes in handy when an
employee goes on vacation or takes an extended leave of absence.
By the way,
PowerPro allows you to define an unlimited number of users.
Additionally, once access rights to a particular module are granted,
the Repair Order module for example, the Service Manager can sign-on
at any terminal and gain access to his specific functions. So,
if he happens to be at the parts counter and needs to check
something on an RO, he doesn't have to walk back to his
office. He can do it right where he is!
easy with PowerPro!
