An advisor can view a customer’s visit history and see maintenance not previously done, so you can follow up, upsell, offer, and build trust with customers. With the convenience of integrated BG canned jobs, suggesting preventive maintenance services are easier to offer and integrate into the work order. This automatically generates the Lifetime BG Protection Plan® Program details and prints on the back of the repair order.
Tekmetric for Technicians
Tekmetric lets technicians to stay more organized through the Tech Board feature which allows them to easily see in one place, all the jobs that are assigned to them and the billable hours associated with those jobs.
They can load pictures on their phone or tablet to visualize the multi-point inspection results. The customer and the service advisor will know exactly what needs to be done, to the level of severity in a matter of minutes. This maximizes work-time efficiency to keep them producing billable labor hours.
A unique feature of Tekmetric is the vehicle specific fluid capacity and torque guide that is pre-populated to that vehicle’s work order. This is designed to reduce time searching for miscellaneous information such as torque specs and fluid capacities.
