VOC Dealer Portal User Guide
Introduction
Overview
This document is a user guide describing the interface and functionality of the
Volvo On Call (VOC) Dealer Portal for a dealer or a dealer agent.
The dealer or dealer agent can use this document to find information about the
VOC Dealer Portal, as well as get instructions of how to use the VOC Dealer
Portal in order to:

Get a user account

Activate and deactivate units

Add and remove subscriptions

Update customer information

View expiring subscriptions

Contact helpdesk
What’s new in the Dealer Portal?
In the latest version of the Dealer Portal you will find that some updates have
been made to the Customer Administration form and the way that vehicle
searches can be performed.
Customer Administration Form
The Customer Administration Form is available when adding a new Volvo On
Call customer and editing existing customers. From the first week of
November, 2013 all new Volvo On Call customers are required to have an Email address registered via the Dealer Portal. This is to support Volvo Car
Corporation’s rollout of VolvoID – a single account for all services – and will
aid in mapping a Volvo On Call subscriber to the VolvoID that the user has set
up on the web. When entering this information, please take care to enter the
email that the customer has used, or will use, to create their VolvoID account.
New address fields have also been added to the form. We’ve moved from
having four generic address fields to having four generic address fields in
addition to a city field, state/district field and a postal code field. The new
address form allows for the collection of data in a more structured way. Steps
to structure address information and remove redundant fields have been taken
in order to support the integration and exchange of this data between several
Volvo systems in the coming software releases. This will enhance the
customer’s experience since updates to data in one system will be visible in
other systems.

VOC Dealer Portal User Guide
Vehicle Search Results
When a vehicle is associated with a customer, the search for the vehicle will
only be successful when the dealer performing the search is in the same market
as the vehicle. However, when the vehicle has not been associated with a
customer – for instance, a new vehicle or one for which the customer
association has been deleted – it is visible in the search results, no matter which
dealer has performed the search. This behavior has been added since it is not
possible for you, as a dealer in a specific market to change the vehicle’s
registration country. In order to associate the Volvo On Call subscription to a
new owner in a different market, the customer data from the original owner
must be deleted by a dealer in the original registration market. Following this, a
dealer in new registration market can add a customer to the vehicle. The
vehicle’s registration country will automatically be updated to the dealer’s
home market.

Volvo On Call (VOC)
The Volvo On Call service package
Historically, Volvo on call has been offered in two separate packages, the
Safety package– encompassing the vehicle-centric services such as On Call,
SOS and Crash Notification – and the Security package, including services
such as theft notification, stolen vehicle tracking and remote door unlock.
From 2011 year models, "Volvo On Call" exists as a single service package.
Customer’s purchasing vehicles of model year 2011 or later which are
equipped with Volvo On Call shall automatically receive a two year initial
subscription in Europe. The services that are included depend on the market.
As a dealer, you will only be able to select one service package when
activating new subscriptions.
In most countries where Volvo On Call is offered, customers may have access
to the following services:

On Call

Crash Notification

SOS

Remote Heater Start

Remote Door Unlock

Theft Notification

Stolen Vehicle Tracking

Remote Vehicle Immobilisation

Unauthorised Driver Detection/Unauthorised Movement Detection
The VOC Dealer Portal will support both the historical and new service
packages until that time when all customers have been "migrated" to the new
service package. Customers who have one or more of the previous service
packages (Safety and/or Security), will maintain those packages until the date
at which they expire – or until subscription renewal – when the new Volvo On
Call subscription package, applicable to the registration country, will apply.
Original Service Package Subscriptions
During the transition phase between the old subscription types and new, the
Dealer Portal will support both. Below you will find information about the old
subscription types.

Safety Package
The safety package is standard when a customer purchases Volvo On Call. The
safety package consists of the following services:

On Call

SOS

Crash Notification
These services are vehicle-centric, meaning that the safety package is
associated with the vehicle. The services can be used by anyone using the
vehicle.
Security Package
The security package includes the following services:

Remote Door Unlock

Theft Notification

Stolen Vehicle Tracking
These services are customer-centric, meaning that the customer must authorize
the Volvo On Call customer service centre to initiate and/or terminate these
services once the security package is added. Authorization is given in the form
of a customer selected password which is determined at the time of the
activation call.

tool used to make accessory purchases when a customer wishes to prolong
his subscription.
