OnCall Air is designed to help a wide variety of HVAC dealers of all sizes grow their business. However, it’s not a fit for all dealers.
The criteria for enrolling in OnCall Air include the following:
All of these criteria will be discussed in an Enrollment call, as discussed in the Getting Started section of the site.
The CE Connector is a unique technology that connects to the Carrier Enterprise E-Commerce site so that a CE Dealer’s product, availability, and pricing information is automatically available.
OnCall Air supports the creation of proposals for the equipment combinations listed below.
OnCall Air supports the creation of residential HVAC proposals including Carrier, Bryant, and Payne-branded equipment, including the automatic update of cost, pictures, product information, and AHRI matchups.
With the Custom Equipment feature, OnCall Air also enables proposals for third-party brands as well (in this case, the information is loaded by the dealer and is not automatically updated. AHRI matchups are also not enabled for Custom Equipment).
You can create proposals that include either one, two or three side by side options.
Yes. As part of your onboarding, our Customer Success team will even create a custom badge that highlights your unique services. This helps your proposal stand out from the competition.
Accessories — such as thermostats, IAQ devices, or smart home systems — can be offered from any brand, whether they are sourced via the CE Connector, or loaded by the Customer Success team.
Yes, for most system combinations OnCall Air will calculate the appropriate match. The system combinations where AHRI matches automatically include: AC + Air Handler, Heat Pump + Air Handler, AC + Evap Coil + Furnace, Heat Pump + Furnace, and Furnace Stand-alone.
We do not currently match AHRI for Ductless systems or Boilers. We also do not match AHRI for custom or third-party equipment bundles.
You can either present the proposal directly from your tablet or laptop, or you can email a digital leave-behind to the customer. You also have the option to print each proposal option if the customer is not able to receive the digital leave-behind.
Yes, the system allows you to select the outdoor unit, and then multiple indoor units and accessories. However, there is currently no AHRI matching support for Ductless combinations.
Yes, you can create a proposal that includes up to 3 options. Each option could be for a different system type, for example: A Furnace Only as one option, and a full AC + Furnace as a second option.
Currently, If a home requires 2, 3 or more systems, each of those need to be created and presented as separate proposals. As an alternative, you may also use the customization features to specify the additional equipment included in a proposal.
Yes, as of August 2017, you do have the ability to incorporate third-party brands using the Custom Equipment feature. To set up equipment from third-party (non-CE) brands, you’ll use the OnCall Air Office system to load and configure cost, product descriptions, models, and photos. The Custom Equipment feature does not automatically match on AHRI, and the product information does not automatically update the way that CE products do.
OnCall Air calculates the final price of the proposal — also referred to as the “Investment Amount” through a series of calculations. These calculations can be divided into 3 steps:
Additionally, discounts, rebates, and financing amounts can influence the Investment amount on each proposal option.
By setting your pricing automatically based on your desired gross profit margin, you increase the probability of meeting your net profit objectives since gross profit margin target should cover your overhead expense.
Unlike the Base Equipment pricing, the Accessories are priced on a traditional markup scale that you determine. You can also override the markup scale and enter the exact sales price you want for any accessory.
Of course! Right before you present your proposal you have the option to add multiple discounts and/or multiple rebates to create the right incentives for the proposal.
Yes, you can create multiple Equipment Pricing profiles, that let you select a different set of pricing assumptions (margins, labor, material) on the fly. This could be used to manage pricing by season, by region, or whatever else may be your objective.
OnCall Air does support financing options, so that you can present a monthly estimated payment alongside your proposal.
While it may work on a larger smartphone screen size, we do not certify the software to work well on devices smaller than a tablet. The size of the screen is simply too small to effectively build a proposal. However, when you send a digital copy of a proposal to your customers, they can view your proposal on ANY device, including their smartphone screens!
You can build proposals from OnCall Air from any small tablet or larger device that supports a web browser including: iPad, iPad Mini, Android tablets, Google Chromebook, Surface Tab Pro, all laptop and desktops.
OnCall Air supports many modern browsers that run on tablets, laptops, or desktops. For the best experience, we recommend using either Apple’s Safari browser or Google’s Chrome browser.
NOTE: We do not recommend using OnCall Air with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) browser.
Consumers may view proposals from any smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop device. The proposal is automatically adjusted for the appropriate screen size. And they can also accept the proposal right from the device.
Once you have reviewed the demo videos, or have had a one-on-one demo with OnCall Air, schedule an enrollment call to review your requirements and to answer any questions. Following the call, you’ll receive your Welcome Pack describing the onboarding steps.
If you are not satisfied with the system after onboarding you can receive a full refund as long as it is within 30 days of signing up.
The onboarding process consist of three sections: configuration, training, and testing. First, OnCall Air’s Customer Success team works with you to configure your Business Settings and Equipment Strategy. Next the Customer Success team will provide trainings on any aspects of the APP that you may need assistance with. Once everything is setup to your liking, you can test it out by creating “test bundles” to make sure everything is working properly.
