Any small shops using Auto Repair Cloud?

Recommended Posts



Cloud software is typically safe, but I don't know anything about these guys. 

I'm using Protractor, which is cloud based.  I'm sitting at home and accessing my system from my laptop.   My software provider can see my data if they wanted to as they have a master password (but I trust them to play nice).

Make sure that you use good passwords since it can be accessed from anywhere.  And change them when anyone leaves.  You will need a backup plan for when your internet dies.   (This could be a Cradlepoint router or using your mobile phone to create a mobile hotspot).   No internet and you are down.

Thanks for the tips! How much is Protractor? Couldn't find pricing info on their site. 

I think it's $350/month for 3 terminals and I know it's $399 for unlimited terminals.   This one is quite mature - meaning many features and few bugs.  For the (mostly behavioral) issues that I've found, they've added features to make it better, which both surprised and pleased me).  They update every 1-3 weeks.
