Any program for scheduled maintenance?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if there is a program for scheduled maintenance? I'd to sell more but I have no way of cost effectively finding out what each manufacterer recommends. We currenty use Mitchell and I have yet to find anything in the program that can help me out.

      Over the years we have developed some generic maintenance intervals to use on most vehicles. We have revised them as time goes by to reflect changes such as extending oil changes or extended coolant. Here's what we are presently recommending. Our POS system, Winworks Autoshop allows us to set up these intervals so that as a vehicle hits these mileages it automatically recommends them and when we do the service it automatically resets the recommendation in the future. Thoughts?
      Oil changes:  semi syn  4K,  full syn  8K
      Alignments: 12K
      Tire rotations  5K
      Brake flush  30K
      Auto trans svce  60K
      Man trans svce  60K
      Coolant flush  60K   [older type coolant] 30K
      Cabin air filters  30K
      Fuel filter   30K
      Fuel injection cleaning  30K
      Spark plugs  copper 30K,  plat, irid 60K
      Drive belts  80K
      Coolant hoses  90K
      Timing belts   90K

      We are trying to come up with a bonus program to include our estimators, office staff and parts employees. I think it would have to be structured differently for each but I am not sure what to base the bonuses on. Any ideas?

      Looking to see if any one uses a program for bad credit clients for automotive repairs if so and who.
      We have used a program thru a company but they have been to difficult to use any longer - No credit check had a $35.00 fee-- client had to pre date three checks up to 90 day's out. They charged 7 percent of bill.
      Was based off if they had a job and income verification. we passed cost to client.

      Hey everyone,
       
      I was recently having a conversation over lunch with a college buddy of mine who has a PhD in computer science and owns a web development company we were casually talking about business etc and started discussing websites and ROI. This got me thinking about my shops site and how efficient we are in tracking the ROI. We currently use Autoshop solutions (were with them before he started the web company but plan on switching) and pay about $190 a month in web maintenance fees with includes updates, hosting and a portal to login to track views etc but it made me start wondering if I really knew the true ROI of my website. Every month I look at the numbers and the reports and see bounce rate, time per page etc but never really have sat to think what that really means and if my website is serving its purpose (to capture the attention of and bring in new customers). On top of that we have our adwords budget and all in all I feel like we are just throwing money out there hoping it will stick and assuming that the site is making us money.
       
      So my question is how is everyone else tracking the ROI of their website?
       
      Also, if you don't mind my asking, what is the typical amount (or rough estimate) you pay monthly for web maintenance (if you have it) and do you feel like you are getting your money's worth from your hosting company? My buddy has offered me an opportunity to come into his business (I have a background in IT as well) and to offer some insight in capturing some business from the automotive industry but I just wanted to get a feel for the problems which you guys are facing today to see if I am the only one with these questions and issues or if this could be an industry issue worth pursuing.
       
      Thanks!

      Hi everyone,

      In case you hadn't heard, here's something you need to be aware of...

      AAA is making some changes, in the way they are doing business.

      Within the last few years, AAA has decided to build their own company-owned facilities.

      Here is a link, with an example of search results, drivers will see when they type in a zip code:
      http://bit.ly/2bk7prG

      Pay special attention to the search results marked (AAA Owned Facility).

      The facilities are impressive and are gaining traction:
      http://midatlantic.aaa.com/Automotive/ClubOwnedRepair/Aboutus/New

      As you can see, their slogan is, "Auto Repair From A Name You Trust".

      This is genius marketing, on their part...

      Because customers equate the AAA logo, as a shop they can trust.

      The other major change they've made is...

      The new requirements for the AAA certification renewal.

      Many shop owners did not read the fine print or notice the changes to the agreement.

      In other words, the fine print requires certified shops to give AAA access to the shop's customer database.

      The biggest concern is if you give them access to your customer database and then, they open a AAA Owned Facility, in your backyard...

      They now have a built-in customer base they can market to.

      What that means to you is...

      This a major conflict of interest because now, they have all of your customers' information, which they can use to actively market and essentially steal your customers.

      So, this is something to be considered, in deciding to continue to be affiliated, as a AAA certified shop.
