Shop Management Software
Chances are, you’ve been thinking about shop management software for your business, to speed up making estimates, repair order creation, etc. Now, think about all the other benefits that auto shop repair software can provide for you, if that suite of software is equipped to deliver more than just RO’s.
The actual management of your business can be enhanced by 21st Century automation of steps you used to take manually (or not at all, because they were too cumbersome or complicated to do on your own). Think about it: there was a time when ‘mail’ meant envelopes, postage stamps and several days delay. Now, we have email.
There was a time when ‘phone tag’ was a game you played with busy customers, trying to actually get them on the phone (in fact you may well still play this game). Now, you send a text message, this functionality is built right into our software..
If it’s time for you to move your business beyond 20th Century management tools (everything on paper), or if you’re ready to step up to a better solution to repair shop management than your present method, then you’re ready for Auto Shop Software by ProfitBoost.
Profitboost’s Cloud-Based Auto Shop Management software can deliver so many actual benefits for your business beyond RO creation, that it helps to show you what they are:
- Time clock integration, for your technicians to log on and off jobs
- SMS (text) messaging to your clients, automated for you
- Internal messaging for your team, to keep everyone connected
- Parts store integration, so you’re always up-to-date with pricing and shipping costs
- Quickbooks integration, so your bookkeeping is effortless
- Marketing and customer retention through strategic partnerships
- Workflow App Integration
This Workflow App Integration can help the service writer manage the flow of the repair process in real time.
Your actual profitability depends on many factors. The more of these factors you can measure and manage, the more you stand a chance of maximizing your profitability and customer satisfaction. Shop management software that goes beyond just RO creation can help, especially if you don’t need to be a software pro yourself to use it.
The real power of Profitboost is its cloud-based service. You don’t need to depend on your computer being up 24/7, and never crashing. You can access this service via smart phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop computer. Backups are handled automatically, and have been for the past decade with no data loss, ever.
You, as the business owner, can also control who within your business has access to whatever PIF Pro tools are appropriate for that person’s job: techs can access the timeclock (and no more, unless you permit it), bookkeepers the Quickbooks, service writers the Workflow, etc. For those of you with more than one location, there are custom integrations available that can be tailored to each location and its mission.
As you can see, automation of RO’s and estimates is just the tip of the iceberg, when it comes to this shop management software. Your long-term goals and profitability depend on you taking all the right steps, in the right order, to make your business work at its best, all the time. The strategic planning elements of PIF Pro give you all the right numbers:
- Average RO value
- Average car count
- Profit Per Hour
- How much you sold last month, last quarter and even last year
If it’s time for you to move your business beyond its current level, or you just need help creating good estimates and RO’s, let this auto shop management software get you where you want to go, and get there on time and under budget.
