Free Simple Shop Management Software

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I'm Ricardo from Complete Auto Reports.  You may have heard about the shop management software that we made at a shop in Linden NJ. 

We've been really busy over the last year trying to refine the process at a shop through the software.  We have come up with something we think that people can and will benefit from.  We want to start with smaller auto repair facilities who are looking for something to transition out of paper and pen, as well as word documents and/or excel spreadsheets.  

We've taken our software and made a free package that allows the following from any device with a updated and functional browser:

  • Take appointments from your customers
  • Digital Vehicle Inspections - Included in every service request and sent to each customer if performed
  • Workflow - Pending, Under Process, Awaiting Approval, Approval Completed, Work In Progress, Completed
  • Ratings - Customers can communicate ratings directly to you
  • Messages - You can communicate with customers through the platform
  • Customer App - All service history available, can schedule appointments with the app, transfer vehicle records to new owners
  • Sales Reports

100% mobile - Works on everything from your 5inch iPhone to your desktop. 

You can presently upload all of your customer information: name, address, phone numbers, email.

Paid for versions offer parts ordering through PartsTech.com and Employeement modules that track employee time on jobs.

Are there members here who are interested in trying the free platform to see if it's a fit for their business? Anyone interested in the paid for versions, can also get 60 days of free use and discounted rates available from our SEMA promotions.

Our 3 plans can be broken down into these simple differences:
 
  • Free:  No inventory, no online parts ordering through PartsTech, only one photo/video per service request, one login, no employee management
  • $50 per month (also have yearly options to save $): Includes online parts ordering through PartsTech and includes inventory, one login, no employee management
  • $100 per month (also have yearly options to save $): includes everything with 5 logins to access the system.

We often get asked, "What use can a bigger shop possibly get from the free plan?"

With the free plan, you can take appointments digitally from your customers and then upload a copy of their receipt from your existing system to their profile in CAR. Reducing paper waste and creating a digital record for your customer to always have.  You can also use the free plan to send your customers a video or photo of the services you are performing, complete with billing the customer through the free plan at the end of the service.  These are all features that you pay for with add on systems, they are all available for free with us as you learn to adapt to smarter, more efficient technology.

Data:

The data you enter is yours, we do not have any agreements presently to share it with anyone and we certainly will never be sharing any personally identifying information with anyone.  Majority of the data we are interested in is to build better features to serve you better.

Should you ever decide you no longer want to use our platform, your account will be available to you for free for one year at minimum.  In addition to that, we can and will provide you a complete data dump of all of your records within 72 hours of the request.  These companies that make it impossible to recover YOUR data is the reason for our open policy.  We want everyone to change their practices and we're leading by example.

Cancellation:

If you decide to cancel your subscription for any reason, all of your data can and will be exported and delivered to you via a USB stick you provide or through email in the way of an Excel file(s).  Additionally, you can access ALL OF YOUR information on our server for one year without any interference from anyone at CAR.  Most of you may not know, but I actually own a shop and if it's one thing I can not stand behind, it's these companies getting access to all of our information for secretive reasons or keeping us from having the very data that belongs to us in the first place.  You will never encounter this experience with us.
