Beneath the surface, the inside view

Auto Repair Bill has many subtle, powerful features that are often easy to overlook.  Most features in our software are interconnected and feed into each other in a natural flow, this may not be obvious just by casually using or looking at the app.

In this post we intend to demystify and debunk some of the inner workings, showing you how to get to maximise productivity and save time on data entry.

For maximum efficiency, set your labor rate. Use the QUIK Service for vehicles requiring scheduled maintenance, add the desired items to the repair order, then make any adjustments you need in the RO editor, when the job is finished, the One Click invoice button will produce a fully costed and prepared invoice to give to your customer.

1) Streamlined, Every repair document can be converted into an invoice with one click


Below you will see the Repair Orders screen, note the highlighted icon, this will instantly convert the select repair order to a chargeable invoice with one click, auto calculating the total labor and adding parts for you to preview and edit before saving. Labor line items from a repair order will be formatted to the labor field on the invoice, with a total calculated.

You can do exactly the same in our auto repair software with an Estimate, with one click invoice creation to convert a quote to an invoice.

2) Set your labor rate in settings

Setting your labor rate in Settings allows Repair Order and invoices to calculate labor costs based on time involved on a job, this particularly speeds up RO creation.

3) One click QUIK Service for Invoices and Repair Orders

The QUIK service feature is a very simple way to create an RO or Invoice for a vehicle by entering VIN, mileage, date since last service, and you will be presented with a list of scheduled maintenance items from manufacturer, you can opt to chose which items you wish to add to your document.

NEW: Improved inventory and markup on parts

We are happy to bring you even more functionality to our inventory and  parts sub system, you may notice on invoice creator that you can now add the markup percentage you wish to apply to a given part.

The Inventory system of our auto repair software has been updated to efficiently handle multiple markup options, you can enter a markup for part in your inventory that will be automatically applied when you invoice out that part from stock.

It is also possible to set a vendor markup rate, applying this markup rate to all parts from this vendor when a part is invoiced.

Upcoming updates will provide stock reporting on Inventory in PDF format for stock taking or general review.
