Android App licence plate scanner

Our Android app had been neglected for some time due to an issue with our licence plate scanner, which thankfully has now been resolved.  We are happy to introduce the new plate scanner which will scan a plate, read the number, then once you select the State, it will attempt to auto fill VIN, Make, Model and Year, all to save you a little more time everyday! We think this will make our mobile app a more useful compliment to our web app when it comes to incoming new clients.

You can now directly dial or send a text message, or email to client from the app on the view client screen.

Other general bug fixes have been applied, including updated permission handling for Android Marshmallow, we are also working on a general redesign which will be on the way shortly too.

We are looking to add service history checks to mobile app also, but we will first need to check with CarFax terms if this is okay to do.

NFC Time management for mobile app

Time management and billing accordingly can be a hassle, and all of us forget or lose track from time to time.  As it is, we have covered this in many areas of our automotive invoice software, with the existing Repair Order management screen, for clock in/out on PC, along with our android app for clocking in/out on the go.

NFC for time management? We are considering adding this to our app, you can use stickers, keyrings, wrist bands, lots of different ways to clock in/out!

And wouldn’t it be easier to simply tap your phone against a sticker to clock in and out?  The one disadvantage foreseen here is that for NFC to work, it is usually on the back of the phone, and hence the phone needs to be removed from any casing to make contact with the NFC surface, we welcome your thoughts on this issue in the comments?

Easy time management, Repair Order clock in/out

Repair Order clock-in and clock-out is available on web app and our smartphone app for auto repair invoicing.

After you create a new RO, you can manage from RO dashboard on web or phone, or alternatively printed RO’s also have a QR code, that can be scanned to check in.

Below is the web app RO dashboard.  The green clock is to clock in to RO and begin work, this will update to the current time, similarly the red clock out icon clocks out and marks the current time.
