The first page for every user is login page. They can choose the language in which they want to access SIMSWeb4. Currently we support English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Turkish languages.
The dealer can login with username and password. The SIMSWeb3 required dealer to use group with the username like if a dealer name DLR with SIMS group want to log into the system, they need to login as DLR-SIMS. But in SIMS Web4, dealer can login with just username DLR, no need to specify the group and the SIMSWeb4 can automatically recognize the group of the dealer.
The account holder or contacts in account can login using account number as username and pass card as password. E.g. if there is a contact JOHN DOE in the account 01-01-0001 and has pass card 1234. Then he can login to the account with username: 01-01-0001 and pass card: 1234. The account must be set up to allow contact JOHN DOE as one of the WB? users, say WB1 (we support WB1 to WB9) and account should also be set up to have web access setting on the premise page. In addition, the Central Station must have WB1 to WB9 operators configured in SIMS.
The Welcome page after login has the statistics about signals, work order and accounts.
The Special Message section shows the special message from the central station and dealers. The Central Station message from a user with group “????” is will be displayed to all the dealers, but not to the account logins.
