COMING Soon! Easy RO/Invoice creation with our QUIK Service

We have been quietly working on some major upgrades in the shadows, and are now almost ready to release the fruits of our efforts!

Labor Rates

Firstly, many of you had asked about labor rates and time costing in the past. We are happy to announce that this has been addressed now. You can enter your invoice time as either time or cash value for your labor, similarly when creating Repair Orders, you can enter labor in hours and automatically calculate labor cost.

For labor cost calculations to function you must enter your labor rate in Settings, you can also conveniently look up the local labor rate in your area by ZIP code.

QUIK Service

Creating a QUIK Service is a breeze. Basically, you go about creating an RO or Invoice as per normal.  Given that the vehicle VIN is supplied, then you see a list of service items, and can refine by mileage and time since last service.  This is a massively time saving function, please see the video above for a demonstration of QUIK Service in our auto repair software.

Pick the service items you wish to add to RO or Invoice, and viola, a fully created, costed and calculated document is produced in seconds!

You can create an invoice using the QUIK service in  a very similar fashion as to creating an RO using QUIK Service.

These new updates are expected to be released later this week, so as ever, stay tuned and watch this space.

NEW: Vehicle spec lookup and service history checks

We have added new features to the homescreen that allow you to quickly and easily look up vehicle spec data, or service history using just plates, VIN, or even make, model and year.

You can do this without needing to first create a new client, so if  a new customer comes into the shop, you can immediately and easily lookup the service history and spec on that vehicle using the plate number or VIN.  These new tools in our auto repair shop software also offer a valuable source of reference data for sourcing parts or knowing the exact model of a vehicle, as well as records as work carried out, and other valuable information, e.g. recalls or write offs.

The following short video shows the new features in action:

New: VIN Decoder for Northern America

We are happy to once again bow to user requests, and add support for VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) decoding.  Using this is a simple process, when you are entering a new client record you can specify the VIN number, you can leave blank of course when you do not have this information to hand at the time, and use the update client link to add the VIN at a later time.

Auto Repair Invoicing Software (6)

We anticipate that many of you may wish to see this in a print-friendly format, we working on a PDF document that can be printed and this is planned for sometime this week, as always, stay tuned for more!
