  2. Hello, Since you're actively investigating a new management system, here are a couple resource lists with different software vendors to look into. List of CARFAX-integrated partners: https://service.carfax.com/csn/partners List of Auto Repair Software programs with user reviews: http://www.capterra.com/auto-repair-software/ You might also consider whether or not you plan to take advantage of other third party integrations, such as fellow ASO site sponsor Bolt On Technology's inspection solution, or your preferred labor rate provider like you mentioned. If you call any of
  3. This is a very relevant post, as these recalls are a stop-sale issue for your customers. I recently attempted to sale a 2008 CR-V that was affected by this recall, and had numerous buyers walk away because there was no date commitment from Honda for a replacement part being available at the time (it was fixed back in July). The sooner you can let your customers know that they are affected, the sooner they can get an appointment to have it fixed for free. Honda will also provide a loaner vehicle if no part is available. Honda has another great resource set up here: http://hondaairbaginfo.com/
  4. Hi SparkerAuto, Since you're using the TABS AutoFluent SMS, you might be interested in watching a quick check in demonstration video we put together highlighting our various integrations. You'll be able to make sure you're getting the most out of the myCarfax tools available in TABS - especially building trust by alerting customers to any open recalls on their vehicles, as well as having better conversations with brand new customers or vehicles where the car may have been previously serviced at a dealership or any of our 39,000+ reporting service locations. Thanks, Thomas
  5. Hi SMMotors, Sorry I wasn't clear - yes, Mitchell is a compatible system with our program. A couple thousand shops who use Mitchell choose to participate. For Mitchell users, there is a separate add-on that facilitates the reporting to Carfax. It did previously happen through Mitchell itself, but no longer. See Mitchell support article here: http://mitchell1.com/knowledgebase/article.php?id=638 When I stated that Mitchell didn't currently have our products, I was referring to shop-facing products like our QuickVIN license plate to VIN, Service History Check, and myCarfax Customer Signu
  6. Hey CAZM, We're happy to have Pomp's Tire in our network of shops! I wasn't involved in the Pomp's Tire roll out, but I imagine they've decided to start actively promoting the myCARFAX app to their customers as a way to help their customers keep up with their service history, and to let Carfax help keep customers coming back for their next preventative maintenance service. AlfredAuto and Geez - you mentioned Mitchell in your post. We don't currently have any of our products integrated inside their SMS, but we do make the Carfax service and repair history available to any participa

  12. Just a thought.. Giving a fresh look to a waiting area isn't necessarily a big spend. A fresh coat of paint, and some other little details could go a long way. I would look for great condition office furniture on Craigslist if I wanted to furnish it better. Assuming you have internet at the shop, go ahead and turn on free WiFi for your customers, and if you don't have a beverage bar, maybe consider a Kuerig or similar. You can stock something like that pretty economically at CostCo or Sam's Club. Just a couple ideas.
  13. Hi Jeff, You are correct. CARFAX did previously have a partnership with Mitchell1 for their management system. To clarify, at no time was an customer information reported to CARFAX. The only pieces of information shared with CARFAX were the VIN, what services were reported on that vehicle, and which shop performed the work. If you think about a CARFAX Vehicle History Report, we only receive information necessary to add a service record to that vehicle. Since that time, we've continued to build out our program - adding more value and benefits for the 37,000+ participating service locati
