The Impact Group, Inc. Presentation Tool Development Requirements

The Impact Group’s FUSION™ software is a flexible, highly customized tool used by finance managers in auto dealerships to present F&I products to consumers in a low-pressure, consultative way.

Any number of tools can be utilized to present the features and benefits of your products, overcome objections, and educate the consumer.

This document defines only the technical requirements of the system. If you have questions about how to maximize the results obtained by your presentation tools, please contact us at 800-667-2614.

When developing custom presentation tools for your product(s), adhere to the following guidelines:

At a minimum, every product in the system must have an “Overview” file. Users are trained to use the Overview as a discussion outline to cover three main points with the customer:

  1. Why the product was selected for the customer
  2. What the risks are in not taking advantage of the product
  3. How the product eliminates these risks

General Considerations:

  • Be sure to use text size that is large enough to be viewed from across a desk, keeping in mind that the image will be scaled down to fit inside the Fusion user interface.
  • Additional supporting tools may be included (graphs, charts, etc) and should be designed with the same guiding principles as the Overview file. For supporting tools, please also include a name that will be used to identify the tool in the Fusion toolbar.


Tool files must be one of the following formats:

JPG Image

  • Must be high-quality JPEG image sized at 800x600 or 1024x768 pixels.

Motion Video

  • Any common video format is acceptable (AVI, MPEG, Quicktime, DVD, FLV, etc).

Flash SWF Animation

  • Can be created at any resolution, preferably between 4:3 and 16:10 aspect ratio.
  • Framerate must be 30 fps .
  • Place a transparent rectangle that is the exact size of the SWF stage on the lowest level of the movie. This is used by our software to determine how to scale the SWF to fit the available space.
  • Only use Actionscript 2.0
  • Make all variable references relative, i.e. do NOT use _root or _global variable scope.
  • Please supply source FLA file so we can audit the code for security.
