Opening for BOLT ON will be John “JB” Burkhauser, who will present the importance and profit potential of keeping customers informed of their vehicle’s service through text messages and digital inspection reports. His presentation, “Communicating with Today’s Customers,” will get the crowd hopping Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 11 a.m. on the Let’s Tech Stage. BOLT ON’s Director of Education, Burkhauser is an industry rock star with over 30 years’ experience in all aspects of auto repair and instruction.
Throughout the expo, BOLT ON will demo its greatest hits, including:
- Pro Pack, the award-winning bundle that includes Lube Sticker Pro, Message Manager, and Report Pro. Syncing with the existing shop management system, Pro Pack ensures owners and managers will have all the information they need in real-time, at their fingertips.
- Mobile Manager Pro, which changes the way shops communicate with vehicle owners, creates digital vehicle inspections customers love, and lets owners and managers track employee time and other vital metrics from connected tablets.
- Text to Pay, a recently announced feature that facilitates faster payments and improved convenience for customers picking up their cars. During the expo, BOLT ON is also announcing additional new payment processing partnerships with Gravity Payments, CardConnect, HotRod Processing, and BASYS Processing.
BOLT ON will also showcase an exciting new release. With Workflow Manager, shop owners and managers can command activities of the entire shop, accurately communicating and adjusting workload in real-time, keeping techs productive, customers informed, and revenue flowing. Within seconds, they can change the status of vehicles, move jobs to different techs, color-code each stage of workflow to gain maximum efficiency and more, including:
- Send pre-built and customized text messages straight to customers
- View inspection points and invoices of any repair order
- Print lube stickers for any repair order
As shop owners realize that the direct correlation between the number of inspection photos they share the with drivers, the higher their average repair orders, the popularity of BOLT ON’s photo sharing software is at an all-time high. Recently the company just surpassed 33 million images shared by repair shops with their customers.
“AAPEX is one of our signature events of the year, and this year we’re performing stronger than ever as we debut new products and new partners that will turbocharge our shops’ business, help increase revenue, and increase customer loyalty,” said Mike Risich, founder and CEO of BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY.
