We are a dynamic company passionate about what we do. We are continuously finding new ways to enhance our products and the profitability of the workshops that use our software. We already have more than 200 workshops using our products. These include workshops within the Bosch, e-CAR, ACD Auto Care, Quick Lane and Point-S networks.
Our Products are web-based, which means you can have access to your data anywhere in the world on any device, and you never need to back up again.
In 2009 we launched our first product – AutoEstimate. It remains the only system to produce kilometre-based service estimates using the vehicle manufacturer’s service instructions and specification. The estimates are workshop-specific because the labour rates and the mark-up percentages of the workshop are used to compile the estimate. In 2012, we launched AutoQuote. It enables workshops to produce final quotes using the actual part prices from their supplier.
With AutoQuote, facilities were added to obtain part prices from suppliers online and to enable customers to view and authorise quotes online. AutoManage developed into a complete management system in 2015. This product comprises an online booking system, the printing of customer and workshop copies of job cards, the conversion of quotes to customer invoices, customer receipts and supplier payments, creditors, debtors, stock management and customer statements.
