SafeFrame Product Training – 20 Minutes with Big Benefits

SafeFrame Product Training Header

Not all of you were able to get in your SafeFrame™ training during February. But there is still time to make sure you know all the ways that SafeFrame can help build your success. We can still schedule a brief product training session with those who haven’t attended. Contact your Sales Rep to choose one of the time slots available for your training session.

The 20-minute session gives you a high-level view of the product and its benefits, as well as how to quote and order, and where to spec it.

Our goal is to have every distributor trained and ready during our big SafeFrame marketing blitz that kicked off this month. If you need help scheduling with your Sales Rep, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

To make sure your distributors know all the ways that SafeFrame™ can help build your success, we have asked you to schedule a brief product training session with each one during the month of February. Please continue to use the email template we sent you to get your distributors to choose one of the time slots available for their training session.

The 25-minute session gives them a high-level view of the product and its benefits, as well as how to quote and order, and where to spec it. Please reserve time at the end to listen to any specific questions that they have, or opportunities to support their efforts.

Our goal is to have every distributor trained and ready when our big SafeFrame marketing blitz kicks off in March.

DoorBuilder Tool Tip #4: Quote Forecasting & 
Probability of Sale

door builder

In order to continue making the DoorBuilder tool the fastest, easiest way to configure Total Door Systems and deliver a quote, we will share tips from time to time to make it easier, more effective and more efficient.

In previous newsletters we’ve shared how to add or subtract the columns you want to review on your quotes page, how to use the search function to find a keyword or distributor and how to find a quote. In this month’s newsletter, we share a tip on how to use quote forecasting and probability of sale within DoorBuilder.

First you need to add the Probability of Sale and Forecast Date columns to your quotes page. To do this, log into DoorBuilder and click on the Quotes tab.

quotes button

You will see a box with three dots along the top, next to the Search button. Click on that box to open the available columns.

search bar

Once that is open, search the list for the Probability of Sale and Forecast Date options. Click on the box next to them to select and then hit Apply.

Probability and Forcast selection

You will now see these columns on the far right. These can be updated by clicking on either one (they both open up the same window). When changing the Anticipated Close Date, you need to click at the very top of the box. This is not standard procedure, but it is a workaround due to a bug in the system at the moment.

Once you have made your updates, simply click on Submit. That is all there is to it.

Thank you to Brian Butler for finding and sharing this tip. If you have a DoorBuilder tip you’d like to share, please send it to Candace Kitchen (candace@totaldoor.com).

Jack Robbins Training Tour Update

Jack Total Door Training Update

Our educational tour with Jack Robbins visiting each sales rep team for a four-day session is about halfway done. As of now, Jack is not scheduled to travel again until April 13 at the earliest. If travel concerns remain, due to the Coronavirus, we will look at setting up web trainings to keep the momentum going.

In the meantime, we thought this would be a good time to get some feedback to share with you. We talked to agencies who have already been through one of Jack’s training sessions to see how it went. Here’s what we found out.

The feeling was that committing your agency to this much time was a big ask, but well worth it. Total Door has spent recent years growing, changing, innovating and creating new product, new tools, a new website and more. So, the agencies felt the time was right to get trained up and absorb everything so they can go out and put it into the field. They felt it was good to get their whole team together to really see and understand the complete Total Door toolbox.

Agencies started out listening to and watching Jack present the PowerPoint tools. Then, they were able to do it themselves. It was sort of a dress rehearsal presentation that Jack could observe and critique. By the time they were done, everyone felt comfortable enough to go out and present the information.

After going through the training sessions, Elliott & Associates had a couple of really great lunch and learn events. One had over 70 people attend from a big firm and they came away with two very large projects.

“Total Door has been developing all these new tools and products and making these investments and commitments,” said Peter Elliott. “You have to make sure you can take advantage of that and leverage that. You can’t do that through osmosis. As great as webinars, teleconferences and YouTube videos are, nothing replaces that in person, face-to-face presence. It was a great few days we had. We felt like we got a lot done and it’s helped us increase our momentum moving forward.”

Thank you to all of you who have completed your training with Jack and for sharing some of your stories. For those of you still on the schedule, we look forward to meeting with you and hope you find it increases your momentum moving forward, too.
