Today Google announced the availability of their own web browser, titled “Chrome”. For those of you who want to learn more, here’s a link to the Official Google Blog posting about Chrome
IE 7 remains the preferred browser of choice when using APR sites and applications. Firefox, Safari and now Chrome each offer some additional features and benefits to specific groups of users. If you are interested in using Chrome, I encourage you to download a copy for use on your home computer. Please do not download/install this Chrome for use on company-owned computer equipment.
Dear APR Associates,
We have just launched a new tool on SAVI (my.apr.com) called Dashfly. Dashfly provides the most efficient route for viewing properties and keeping track of your mileage. This service is quick and easy and allows you to create a route in seconds. Tired of studying your maps or sifting through Mapquest trying to determine the best route? Showing or touring properties this week? Dashfly will save you as much as 1 hour a day mapping and driving routes, ultimately allowing you to show more homes, get more clients, expand your market, increase transactions, and save time.
Dashfly features include… * Optimized route for showing/touring as many as 25 properties * Turn-by-turn directions and drag/drop rerouting * Save routes and track mileage * Take secure notes with property information and client feedback * Email and print routes * Create mileage reports for tax purposes on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis
The application is very user friendly and intuitive. Here are a few pointers:
1.) Click the Dashfly icon in the Tools Menu / Listing and Community Information.You will be directed to a page where you can pick the level of service you would like and create a password that can also be used at www.dashfly.com.
2.) To create a route, enter the start address and each stop address in random order. Please remember to write the city and state (i.e. San Francisco, CA) at the end of the address.
3.) Once you have created a route, you can print and email. You must save your route to track your miles. Your route and mileage will be saved on the "Routes" page of the application. This page will keep track of all of the miles driven for expense reporting.
4.) The "Support" page immediately sends a request to the Dashfly tech support dept, which will respond immediately should you have any problems or questions with the application. Your feedback, experiences and requests are most valuable, so please do not hesitate to share! Dashfly will be rolling out new features and will notify you via email.
Enjoy the new service! THINK SMART. THINK SIMPLE. THINK DASHFLY.

SAVI will be undergoing planned hardware maintenance this Saturday night, beginning at 10PM.
A faulty circuit breaker on one of Baynet’s power distribution units has been the cause of several outages in the last month.To ensure this problem is eliminated, Baynet plans to install new PDUs in its rack on Saturday night. We plan to begin work around 9PM and expect temporary service outages to begin around 10PM and last no more than 2 hours (likely, the system will be up most of the time, with 10/15 minute outages occurring here and there as machines are power cycled)
We will also be improving hardware in some areas of our system to resolve identified and potential performance bottlenecks (RAM, etc.)
