How Can The New Workshop App Features Help Your Garage?
27th January 2023
Garages looking to improve their efficiencies and profits in 2023 are set to benefit from new features now available in Dragon2000’s Workshop App, providing service advisors with even more control over the day-to-day running of their department.
The Workshop App is essential for managing your garage operations when you’re away from your desk, providing you with instant access to the day’s workload from a mobile or tablet device. The app’s real-time service job tracking and transparency of time and attendance means you’ll have the power to analyse technician activity and make improvements where necessary, which could result in more cars being booked into the workshop and a healthy boost in profit each month.
Fully integrated with the DragonDMS dealer management system, the Workshop App can revolutionise your garage by simplifying and digitalising daily processes to save you valuable time, with a host of features including digital job cards, interactive condition reports and vehicle health checks all readily available to use on your mobile device.
The new Workshop App features for 2023 include:
Labour tasks can now be reassigned from one technician to another, allowing for flexibility throughout the day when unexpected changes need to be made, which could be due to various reasons such as staff sickness or simply jobs overrunning.
Access Recent Comments
Recent comments made by your technicians can be quickly accessed and viewed by service advisors from the mobile app, keeping them instantly up to date on anything that has just been logged in the service department.
Add Images To Comments
Technicians can add images to their comments on a job, providing further clarity on any reported issues and ensuring that service advisors don’t need to head over to the bay for a visual look at any problems. The images will also appear in the DragonDMS record for future reference if required.
VHCs Within Tasks
Vehicle Health Checks are now accessible within a task, allowing technicians to immediately begin the VHC on a vehicle they’re already working on. The vehicle details will also already be completed when opening the VHC, saving you time from re-entering information.
Fitted/Not Fitted Items
Items assigned to jobs can be viewed in the Workshop App and marked as either fitted or not fitted, avoiding any confusion with the status of your parts and the progress of the task. The part status within the job will also be updated in the DragonDMS to ensure maximum accuracy.
More Condition Report Templates
For garages working on vehicles other than cars, the interactive condition reports within the Workshop App have been updated to include layouts for motorbikes, motorhomes and HGVs, allowing you to more accurately pinpoint any vehicle issues and log them for future reference. The condition reports can also now be signed digitally within the app by customers to confirm the recorded check.
