Technology Launch

December 1, 2017 in Features

It’s official! Our new technology platform – designed for you, our extraordinary OPTAVIA Community – is now live! Here is a comprehensive look our new technology features, unveiled today.

OPTAVIA Connect

OPTAVIA Connect provides you with the tools needed to build and grow a successful OPTAVIA business. The new back office features powerful reporting and support tools to manage both your Coach Team and your Clients. OPTAVIA Connect makes managing your business simple so you can focus on what matters most – helping others to achieve Optimal Wellbeing! The following are the features included in OPTAVIA Connect:

  • Performance Banner – After you login to OPTAVIA Connect, you will see a performance banner that includes your current performing rank, your next rank, as well as the easy steps to get there!
  • Business Dashboard –
    OPTAVIA Connect’s new Engage dashboard gives you a snapshot of your business in real time, right at your fingertips. From Lives Impacted, to Frontline Volume, to a CAB Countdown, your dashboard shows you the areas to focus on in your business each day.
  • Reporting – Select from a variety of pre-defined reports or create your own with the filters you choose.
  • Tree View – See information and search for all of your Clients and Coaches in your entire organization. Simply click on a name to view their information and contact them directly.
  • Editing your Story – Now when you edit your “About Me” section of your personal website, your story and edits will appear live immediately, instead of waiting for approval from our Compliance team! Should any edits need to be made, an OPTAVIA Compliance team member will contact you directly.
  • Real Time – Because OPTAVIA Connect is running and showing reporting in real time, instead of a delay, there will no longer be a one-hour time period after placing an order during which you can change that order. As soon as an order is placed online or over the phone, it will move through the fulfillment process at our distribution centers, and no more edits to that order can be made.

The redesigned OPTAVIA.com site and your personal Coach website feature the following enhancements:

  • Redesigned, the OPTAVIA Way: The new OPTAVIA.com website has been completely redesigned and features new content, new shopping cart, and a simple, streamlined checkout process. You and your Clients are able to access a new "My Account" section and receive OPTAVIA branded emails.
  • Editing OPTAVIA Premier: In addition to the redesign, the site contains new functionality for easy, streamlined editing of OPTAVIA Premier orders (formerly BeSlim Club®).
  • Same Day Processing:
    OPTAVIA.com allows for same day processing of OPTAVIA Premier orders! Now on any day, especially on the last day of the month, you and your Clients are able to set your OPTAVIA Premier order to process online, instead of calling our Client or Coach Success Teams.
  • Find a Coach: When Client Candidates request an OPTAVIA Coach, they have the option to request one geographically located near them by entering their zip code. The name, photo, and personal story of the closest five Coaches is displayed for the Candidate to request a local Coach right in their community!
  • Client Account Cross Reference: When a current Client “accidentally” requests a Coach while trying to locate their Coach, they will NO-LONGER get “assigned” to a new Coach. Instead, they are re-directed to their actual Coach's website to complete their order!
  • Text Messages: Clients can opt in to receive text messages from OPTAVIA within "My Account" after logging in!
  • Single Sign-On: All platforms within OPTAVIA.com and OPTAVIA Connect operate with a single sign on! Once you log in with your email address and password, you’ll have access to your account, OPTAVIA Connect, OPTAVIA Share, OPTAVIA Buzz, OPTAVIA Learn, OPTAVIA Answers, OPTAVIA Pay, and more!
