Estimating with Winworks AutoShop

Whether you’re creating a quick estimate or a complete work order, AutoShop gives you five different ways to write up the job. You can import parts and labor information directly from one of your own Standard Tasks.

Standard Tasks are canned jobs which can contain a labor estimate, any number of parts, and a detailed description of the work to be performed.

In Winworks AutoShop you can create Standard Tasks “On the Fly” saving you time and ensuring standardized pricing for the same job.
Winworks AutoShop can also import information from separately purchased 3rd party databases such as the Mitchell Parts and Estimating CD-ROM, ALLDATA for Windows estimates and Quick Quote estimates.

Writing Repair Orders

Winworks AutoShop makes writing work orders a snap. AutoShop’s automatic fill-in feature fills in the customers name as you type. There’s plenty of room for repair instructions and a unique “tech only” feature to print messages on the technician’s copy that don’t print on the customer’s copy. If you don’t know the customer’s name, just use the vehicle window, enter part or all of the licence plate, and click Find. After the vehicle appears, click the Write W O button to write the work order. Easy!

Winworks AutoShop is a Task Based system and can separate up to 99 jobs on a work order. Separately proposed and calculated jobs mean better work order print-outs for your customer. They’ll understand a large bill easier if each job is broken out separately. And you’ll get valuable profit information by job so that you’ll know which jobs make money and which don’t.

 

Edit customer information on the fly

Winworks AutoShop works the way a windows program should. When you’re in the work order window, you can click the Customer or Vehicle button on the tool bar to edit changed information. Our customers love it!

Automated Time Keeping

If you pay your mechanics by the hour, wouldn’t you like to know how long they spent on a job? Wouldn’t it be helpful to know their average productivity? Maybe you could give bonuses to those most productive. AutoShop puts that productivity information at your fingertips with its automated time sheet system. Employees clock in at the beginning of the day and charge out their time to work order tasks. Our point and click interface means learning the system will be a snap! And you’ll benefit because you’ll know the TRUE labor profit on a job based on charged and actual hours and the shop labor rate and employees rate.

Easy Windows-Based Marketing with AutoShop

The AutoShop Marketing Machine makes it easy to send out reminders for customers needing service. But it does much more! You can select customers based on where they live, how they heard about your shop, when they were last in, what kind of car they drive, or whether they’re a new customer. With that list, you can create labels, post-cards, a diskette file, or a printed report. And the Marketing Machine uses the same tractor feed and laser labels and postcards that you can buy at your local office supply store. You told us marketing should be this easy and we listened!

Finally, an easy and fun way to better service your customers by reminding them which services should be performed to maintain safety and performance! But the Marketing Machine does so much more allowing you to also create reports and data files.
