Anybody used snap on verdic


Recommended Posts

Hey has anybody used the new Snapon Verdic yet?I'm test using one for a week.I had some issues.I think some of the screen I con are small and hard to see thy are hard to use w/ you fingers somtimes the pen seems to work better.It should be on all the time because booting up time isn,t made for flat rate tech.I like all the features it has .But it has some issues hooking up to some chrysler products.You can't get the data screen to say up.I called tech line and I got the immpression that snap on has got kinda erregant in its old age.I was ready to spend big bucks on what I wanted to beleive in.The Rep that visited me left me feeling like oh well I m sure it works on everything else and the'll probly fix this.And it isn't supported by Suzuki,Saab,volvo why? but Landrover is in it.I,d think that the adverage shop would see a Suzuki or volvo before a land rover can't they ever explore the possibility? They want and claim to be the best they should act like it ,at least make me feel like there trying .I was really going to buy it,but if I,m not getting support now what can I expect down the line.Id like to hear from some of you maybe I can be swayedI know one scanner can't do every thing but..so close..

I saw a demo of the Snap On Verdic and it looked pretty nice. The only problem with a demo is that the sales person is going to show you all the nice features to make it look impressive. I think you did the right thing by using it for a week and you bring up some valid issues. my concern is that the scanner debate is getting more confusing: should we go we OE? Or are there acceptable aftermarket scan tools that we do the job?

 

Let's hope more people will get a chance to use it and we can get more opinions on it.

      As a former auto shop owner, one of the things that kept me up at night was not knowing enough about all the labor laws and human resource regulations.  
      How do you keep up with all the changes to the labor laws and human resource regulations in your state?

      In the world of the customer, do they know what DVI stands for or what an inspection really is? Have you thought about calling it a “Vehicle Health Check?” My panel discusses the importance of transparency with your customer and why you might want to change the term ‘DVI.’

      Inspection vs Vehicle Health Reports. With a digital format available that delivers much more transparency and value, we need an UPGRADED term for our in-depth process that we present to each customer The value in GREAT and Personable Vehicle Health Reports to technicians, advisors, and the facility.  In states such as NY, any kind of "inspection" usually resonates with State Inspection. In-depth Vehicle Health & Safety Evaluation IN-DEPTH – An extremely high-value, thorough & extensive process that focuses on knowing actual conditions, measurements & facts.  If it can be known it WILL be known; and if it is known then it WILL be shown – C. White VEHICLE HEALTH – Just like the human body, a vehicle can be in a poor state of well-being, leading to unreliability, poor fuel economy, and inconvenient break-downs. SAFETY – Equally as important as Vehicle Health, Vehicle Safety or the lack thereof directly impacts the consumer’s peace-of-mind EVALUATION – A physical assessment (including test drive) of the entire vehicle performed by an expert technician in which the condition of every accessible system in the vehicle is scrutinized, documented, and reported to the customer in an easily understandable format.

      The word OSHA makes many shop owners cringe. 
      I was lucky enough years back to have my insurance agent suggest I perform a voluntary OSHA inspection. A private company did it at the time.   
      They found tons of violations; some we knew would be flagged, but most we did not. 
      Have you ever had an OSHA inspection? And what can shop owners do to protect themselves?

      According to studies from Northwestern, Birdeye, and other companies, people are most influenced by reviews with an average rating of 4.2 to 4.5 stars out of 5 — making this the ideal average star rating for purchase probability.
      Having all 5-star Google reviews can work against you.  People may not trust a company with all 5-star reviews. No business is perfect, and you cannot please everyone. Also, people make mistakes.
      Having negative reviews is not the end of the world, in fact, it may actually help your business.
