In 2018 your business needs software to help manage it efficiently. No matter whether you are a Transmission shop, a general repair business or a Diesel shop you need the numbers and efficiency that comes with using software. It doesn’t matter whether you are a small 2 bay shop with you and part time help or a multi shop, multi bay operation trying to work with handwritten RO’s and spending hours on the phone ordering parts just doesn’t cut it anymore.
For those of you mulling over your choices in managing your business via software, the main question should be, “What works best for my business, long term?” Having the software installed on your company’s computer system could seem like the best choice – until you think about what happens when your computer crashes, when the hard drive dies, gets stolen in a break in or is invaded by malware or ransomware. The last thing you want to be is at the mercy of a faulty machine or a crooked hacker.
This is why Web based repair shop management software is the best choice for your business.
- Works on PC or Mac
- Works on Tablets
- Any machine Any where
- Nothing to install
- Doesn’t care about Windows updates
Yes, you will have to set up your account for the first time, but that won’t be preceded by installing any software (and hoping it works right the first time, or finding that their software is not compatible with your version or Windows).
Once that’s done, it’s easy and effortless for you and your staff to carry out the steps you need to effectively manage each job, for maximum efficiency and profit. You will instantly be able to access:-
Customer and vehicle management
- Parts Ordering
- Time Clock
- Profit Per Hour indicators
Your staff can use the timeclock function to let you know exactly how long each job is taking – and who is most efficient at his or her job. You also have access to conveniences, like the ability to send an automated text to your customer as soon as the job is done. No more phone tag with your customers for you or your staff. There are even connections with online parts suppliers, and a direct connection with your Quickbooks accounting software.
Profitboost does all this, and more. It’s easy to use, intuitive, and has been battle-tested for more than 15 years. In fact, it’s that ease of use that makes it the best choice for those that are less than eager to ‘computerize’ their shop management. Add to that the ability to see if your jobs are maximizing profits, and you have just the right combination of benefits for growing your business.
Whether you are a small shop in a single location, or a regional business that’s growing all the time, this is the cloud-based system for all your management needs. You control access to the system itself for your employees: workers have access to the timeclock, your accountant has access to the money management, and you have ultimate control of profitability with a Profit Per Hour indicator.
Profit Per Hour can be your ticket to a better bottom line, by allowing you to price each job according to actual parts prices, real-time shop floor hours, all your real costs (more on that soon) and your desired margin of profit.
There’s one more benefit to consider: cloud-based security. You have the peace of mind of knowing that all your information is backed up automatically, on a proven system that’s been working for over a decade without a failure. You won’t have to depend on your machine being in proper working order, all the time, every time you need it. With a Web-based interface, even a smartphone will allow you to run your business, even if there’s a local power failure.
With Profitboost your answer to the question, “Will Web Based Shop Management Software work best for me long term?” is unequivocably Yes!
