How Do YOU Handle Receipts?


Recommended Posts

George, thanks for the reply. I just became a Mitchell user, signed up last week. I like that idea, going to give it a try.

When you say that the office person double checks them before they are separated, How are the "seperated" by vendor, date, customer???

Please elaborate


We do the same as Joe has said above, in the main office the invoices are stored by Vendor, each vendor has a folder and inside that folder the invoices are separated by month, and in sequence by invoice number.

We store all invoices by vendor. Each vendor has a file. As we pay the month invoices we have another drawer that has each vendor and we file the paid invoices in it. We also use Mitchell.

I prefer to keep my system pretty simple. I have a file box with copies of all outgoing invoices organized by date with the parts receipts used for that particular repair stapled to the invoice.


The electronic copies of the invoices are saved in my computer with the name and date as the file name so that they are automatically organized for me by name and then date of repair (example file name would be "Smith, Jerry 2013-07-02").


This system seems to be working very well for me. If I need to look up warranty on a part or pull a customer's previous repair invoice I simply find their name listed on my computer and the repair date linked to that file name tells me exactly what file folder to pull the paper invoice from my file box out of.

I am opening my first shop in a few weeks and have been sifting through the seemingly endless list of management programs. Protractor, rowriter, mitchell, bay master, a few others. Mitchell seems like the most user friendly program. Although I could not get a very good demo of it do to the sales guys lack of knowledge of his own program. The social module of it seems like a great advertisement tool to propel the business. Someone please just tell me which program to pick! LOL.

      A recent study, done by Harvard Business School, concluded that the real problem with attracting and retaining employees has more to do with the workplace environment, not pay or benefits. While the study did find that an adequate pay plan and offering an attractive benefits package did help with recruiting and retention, it’s not enough to satisfy the needs of employees, especially those of front-line workers.
      The study also stated that in 2021, many companies were convinced that giving raises, sign-on bonuses, and other perks would solve the worker shortage problem and prevent people from quitting. However, this strategy did not work. So, what does work regarding attracting quality people and keeping them employed?
      Essentially, it all comes down to the culture of your company.  Management: do all it can to consider the individual needs of your employees. Your employees want to feel that they have a voice, that their opinion counts, and that their role in your company is both respected and recognized. Yes, pay and a great benefits package will go a long way toward making your employees feel secure, but that’s only financial security. People want more than money.
      To attract and keep top talent requires creating a company that people feel proud to work for. You need to reach the hearts and minds of your employees. Become a leader that people are enthusiastic about working for. You want your employees bragging to their friends and family that your shop is a great place to work!
      Step one to attracting and retaining quality employees: Create an amazing workplace environment for your employees!  Trust me, happy employees make happy shop owners too!

      Hey all --
      My team is getting ready to release a tool that reaches out to your customers automatically to ask for a review. Positive feedback returns a prompt to review on Google and Yelp. Negative feedback is caught and an autoresponder asks them to contact you to discuss. It's a great way to boost your online reputation without much effort. It works standalone and can also integrate with your shop management software. When you close a ticket it can automatically trigger the outreach cycle. 
      As an ASO member you can use it for free for 3 months. No credit card required. 
      Check it out. Feature requests and feedback always welcome -- RepCaster.com
