We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new Alerts and Alert Management feature. Alerts is a brand new addition to the Radius+ platform that helps users to stay on top of market changes. Users are able to create three types of Alerts - Pricing, Inventory and Facility. We wanted to make this feature as easy to use as possible, so we included a bell symbol that users can click anywhere on the app to generate their own customized alerts. Alternatively, users can generate alerts by clicking on Alert Manager on the dashboard located on the left hand-side of the Radius+ application. Users' personalized notifications will continue to be sent until they are deleted or disabled. This new feature is perfect for users who want to stay ahead of the market and make sure they don't miss any opportunities.

Pricing

Pricing alerts are alerts which users can create to track any changes in pricing. There are five alerts which can be created through pricing -

The Radius+ user will be able to track any unit sizes and feature combinations meaning that they will never miss a price change again. The user will be able choose all or any facilities within a 1, 3, 5 and 10 mile radius within their desired trade area. As well as specify the type of pricing they wish to be notified by, whether this be web or in-store. Furthermore, having the possibility to track the type of pricing over the last seven days, such as average, high, low or latest ensures the user can be notified from their desired criteria. To allow users as much flexibility as possible, users can define the chosen amount in either dollars or percentage.

Pricing Alerts

Inventory

Inventory alerts are alerts which users are able to create to track any changes in inventory. Users will be able to define the type of inventory change -

The user can track any unit size and feature combination in a 1, 3, 5, and 10 mile radius and choose all or any facilities within that trade area.

Inventory Alerts

Facility

With Facility alerts, users are able to create alerts which track any new development projects and new facilities in their desired trade area. With the option of choosing any pipeline status to track -

Users will be able to be notified on any change within their criteria and can choose between 1, 3, 5 and 10 mile radius.

Facility Alerts

Review Your Alert

Users will be able to read a summary of what they have set for all Pricing, Inventory, and Facility alerts before saving them. This gives the user a clear indication of what they will be alerted about and allows them to double-check that they haven't forgotten to track a particular feature.

Alerts Manager

Users may view notifications and change all of their existing alerts with the Alert Manager tool. Users will be able to modify and delete their alerts, as well as enable and disable them. Users can also view notifications for their alerts and navigate to the facility profile page of the facility that they have created the alert for.

An alert can be created anywhere on the app by clicking on the bell icon or by clicking on the 'Alert Manager' on the dashboard. This allows for a clear section to navigate to when users are wanting to alter their alerts.
