Support for multiple vehicles per customer

We are adding this to our to do list of features on the way, we recently published the most requested features from our competition, and are busy on the way towards implementing these upgrades for our automotive invoice software.

As the system currently stands, each new vehicle is created as an individual account, this can make it difficult when trying to manage a customer that has more than one vehicle registered on the system.  We plan to introduce the ability to link customers.  This will enable our recently added customer statement feature to list all, or  a selection of vehicles belonging to a client on one statement, which has obvious advantages for both you and your customers to see where  they stand with their auto repair bills.

As always, stay tuned, and follow us here, or on facebook and twitter for updates.

New features planned for 2015

We recently held a facebook competition to gain insight into what our customers would like to see in our auto repair shop software.  Many thanks to all those who took part, providing many valuable suggestions, which we are taking on board on a priority basis by demand, and congratulations to our winner of a one year unlimited acccount, Denis O’Carroll, we hope you are happy!

While many suggestions were made, minor and major, we have compiled the following shortlist of next to be added features:

  • Vendor/Inventory management and better control of part costing.
  • Repair Order history on the client dashboard.
  • Automated reminders, for unpaid invoices, and to send for service reminders.
  • Sales/Income reporting and charts.
  • More video tutorials.

The RO history is likely the first of the above that we will tackle, as we update the software we will, as always, keep you informed and up to date on new feature rollouts here on our blog and our facebook and twitter profiles.

New features: Client account statements now available

Firstly, thanks to the folks who contributed bug reports and feature suggestions for our auto repair invoicing software over the months, we take all comments into consideration and always have more on the way!

Numerous bugs in navigation have been resolved, searching for clients by name has been fine tuned, as well as some issues on the Bookings management.  We have revamped our Repair Order screen, many felt this was cluttered, it is now much clearer and improved upon, as well bringing as-you-type part prediction, which we also will be implementing soon for labor items on repair orders.

By far the largest request in recent times has been for client statements, to print of an overview of a client’s account, with all transactions on their account, i.e. invoices sent, cash, checks, paypal payments received, and any adjustments to payments on the account. For auto repair shops that have large clients with much repeat work will find this useful, as will your clients that may require such for expenses and accounting purposes.  Our client statement feature is in it’s infancy, and there will be upcoming refinements in coming weeks, including PDF, and down the line a custom statement generator, which can be spread over date range and also combine multiple vehicles that belong to one client, as ever, Stay Tuned!
