Auto shop efficiency hinges on the technology that automates your processes and the skilled technicians that fix your customers’ cars. A talented technician certainly has their pick when it comes to finding an auto shop to share their skills with.
Still, the infamous question remains, “How can you get the best local talent to choose your shop and stick around for years to come?”
Start with technology. If your shop is still using exclusively paper and phone-based methods, you’ll want to step into the latest century. Now more than ever, innovation is essential for survival. It’s no secret that talented technicians take jobs at auto shops that are packed with the latest technology, allowing them to produce their best work. This also allows them to crank out more jobs on a daily basis – a win-win!
Are you an auto shop owner or manager that is just not sure where to start? From dedicated workstations to digital vehicle inspection capability, there are a few simple additions you could make to your auto shop that will draw in top technicians. Adding the four tools found below is the first step in revving your auto shop to new speeds.
Retaining top technicians will definitely help your shop to stay on top in the highly competitive automotive repair industry. When you allow your technicians to complete digital vehicle inspections from dedicated workstations, they’re able to work a lot more efficiently – getting vehicles in and out of your shop without the hassle. Even better, digital estimates allow for ease-of-use for staff and quick approval from customers. Go digital and get to ‘yes’ faster. Shop-Ware has found that auto shops receive an 89% digital estimate approval rate on average. One thing is for sure: when service writing is fast, smooth, and profitable, both technicians and customers are happy.
Watch profits skyrocket as this is just another awesome result of implementing the latest technology. With technicians working faster than ever before, your auto shop will be able to complete more jobs and be more selective with the jobs you take on – increasing your average RO. If you’re considering upgrading your shop’s technology, it is important to remember that the latest technology provides a complete solution – from retaining talent to increasing profits.
