A system and method handling and sorting calls includes maintaining leads in a database, segregating the leads based on type, performing automated calls for each of a first stream of leads, and queuing the second stream of leads in the list manager application to provide a newest available lead to a user interfacing with the list manager application. The user initiates a call via the list manager application to the newest available lead, and transfers the call to a sales representative when the newest available lead indicates an interest to the user via a telephone conversation that a purchase may be desired, or ends the call when the newest available lead indicates no interest, there is no answer for the call, or there is no call being completed.

A panel assembly includes a multilayer panel including first and second layers made of loftable material characterized by a molded orientation resultant from lofting and subsequently compressing the loftable material during molding of the multilayer panel. The panel assembly may be light-weight with a low profile to minimize protrusion into an opening or compartment enclosed by the panel. The multilayer panel may be configured to as a floor panel enclosing an opening defined by a floor structure, which may be a vehicle floor. The multilayer panel may include at least one recess portion configured to strengthen the multilayer panel. A method of making the multilayer panel includes tethering the loftable material in a tethering frame prior to lofting and transferring the tethering frame including the lofted material into a mold to form into the multilayer panel. The tethering frame retains offal for removal from the mold after forming the panel.

A load bearing panel member having a first portion, a second portion, and an appearance surface portion is formed by injection molding such that the first portion includes a plurality of ribs forming a grid pattern on the first portion and another plurality of ribs extending toward the periphery of the first portion which may be non-orthogonal to each other and to the ribs forming the grid pattern. An internal channel may be formed within each of the non-orthogonal ribs by injecting a gas into the rib during the molding process forming the panel. An appearance surface portion attached to the first portion and second portion of the panel member forms an integral hinge between the first and second portions of the panel member. The panel member may be configured as a floor panel of a vehicle.
