Save Time With Tekmetric Digital Vehicle Inspection
Vehicle inspections have always been a paper-based process, and it typically goes something like this: The inspection is conducted, everything is written down on paper, it is signed off by a manager and then stored in a file somewhere until it has to pulled out again someday. However, as technology is becoming more advanced, and businesses are expanding, paper-based systems have started to become a hinderance. Here is how a Digital vehicle inspection can save you time.
Work begins immediately
After a technician meets the customer at their vehicle, their personal details are typed into a handheld device. The licence plate or VIN number is scanned into the system and automatically stored. The information is then sent for approval, a technician is assigned to the job and work begins.
Other service recommendations
The majority of cars require additional service and maintenance beyond the basics. Digital vehicle inspection software can alert techs and service advisors about any recommended repairs prior to the customers arrival. The system has access to all previous service histories which assist in the recommendation process.
