NEW: Servicing Guides for Northern America

We have recently introduced a raft of vehicle data information, from VIN decoder, service history and plate lookups to our auto repair shop software.

You can now also look up service guides for vehicles in North America, including servicing schedules, frequency.

It will also tell you the required labor time and required parts, as well as part costing.

We soon plan to tie this in with pre-calculated labor rates to automatically add labor to invoices and repair orders.

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.
