If you are a certified mechanic and you have the mindset of an entrepreneur, one of the best businesses to set up is an auto repair shop. Cars are one of the many items that will never go out of fashion. People are always going to drive cars and they are always going to need maintenance. This means that the services you provide are always going to be required. During times of economic hardship, an auto repair shop will continue to thrive because people would rather maintain their old cars than buy a new one.
On the other hand, if you are currently running an auto repair shop, you know that one of the most tedious aspects of the business is administrative tasks. You will often find that you spend more time on paperwork than actually doing any repairs. If this is something you are struggling with, we have a solution the Tekmetric auto repair software! It will help you to streamline your business and make it easier to manage your administrative duties so that you can focus on more important issues.
One of the most tedious tasks is appointment scheduling, even if you are no longer using the antiquated system of a physical diary and you have upgraded to an excel spreadsheet, you are still not being as efficient as you could be. Our auto repair software will let you know when there are appointments available so that you don’t overbook. If it’s an existing customer all you will have to do is click a button and the system will automatically input their details. You will no longer have to rummage through paper work, or scroll through an online calendar looking for available appointments.
Another administrative task that is far from cost effective is having to call customers to remind them of their appointments, or to let them know that their vehicle is ready for collection. With our auto repair software, you will input everything into one central system. This means that when you are working on a customers car, the entire process from appointment to what is wrong with the vehicle, to the parts that it will need, to how long it will take to fix, the repair process and when the repairs have been completed are all stored in one location. You can use the messaging system to remind customers of upcoming appointments, keep them up to date with the repair process and let them know when their vehicle is ready for collection. Messages are sent via text message and email. On the rare occasion, you might need to call a customer, but that is not going to be very often.
If you have read this far in the article, you are probably thinking, “Well this sounds great, but how much is it going to cost?” The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! We are so confident in our auto repair software that for the rest of 2018, it is completely FREE OF CHARGE. You are not bound to a contract, you can try it out, and if it hasn’t benefited your business, you are under no obligation to pay.
