Ensure your garage is prepared for winter with Autowork Online
Winter is here and van owners are busy preparing for the cold months ahead. The appropriate tyres are being purchased, good quality lights are being considered to combat the early nightfall and health checks are being carried out to ensure vehicles are ready for the cold snap.
There is no better time for garage owners to take a look at their own software to ensure they are utilising all necessary features to prepare for the winter rush.
Autowork Online is the comprehensive web-based application that simplifies and manages every aspect of running a busy workshop and garage from raising quotes and job cards, a repair time database, CVRT diary, a comprehensive workshop management diary, along with many more essential features.
Together with TeamView, the paperless job and technician’s activity add-on for Autowork Online, garages and workshops can ensure they are fully prepared for winter and beyond.
Using TeamView, garages will be able to perform winter services utilising the in-built electronic vehicle health check (eVHC) functionality. Digitising health checks can ensure no unnecessary costs on paper and no additional time spent recording this information.
Winter also sees an increase in road accidents due to the adverse weather; TeamView includes a dynamic damage inspection module that can record all necessary inspection data and photographs.
All information is passed back into Autowork Online where any potential jobs or replacement parts can be sold. Autowork Online also has a deferred work functionality. Deferred work ensures that any work that would have been deleted can be deferred to a later date ensuring sales aren’t lost.
Deferred work, upcoming CVRTs and sales promotions can all be sent to customers using Autowork Onlines intuitive SMS and email messaging functionality. Business’ can keep in constant contact with customers and ensure that appointments aren’t missed, money isn’t lost and customer satisfaction is at an all-time high.

“With winter approaching, many time-consuming jobs can be actioned with ease, it’s the best time to evaluate software and decide whether its maximising the potential of your business.”
