RSS Insights

Running an Auto Repair Business isn't a game. You built this because you wanted something better. You opened your own shop and thought it would be simple, just need to keep the customers happy and have plenty of cars to fix. You weren't ready for years of 16 hour days, no vacations and a spouse wondering why you're coming home late every night. What you don't know, can destroy what you built. Let us help.

A web based program designed by shop owners, coaches and web engineers focused on getting you the financial data you need to analyze and run your business without all the usual hassle of remoting into your machine at work and opening multiple reports to get the info you need now.

Brought to you through a cooperative effort from the people at AutoApps and Repair Shop Solutions. Leaders in simple and effective programs for the Auto Shop Owner.

RSS Insights - Financial and marketing information

Innovative Technology

We've got the reports you need at your fingertips. Sales, Profits, Margins, Hours Sold, and on and on..... You'll love the ease of pulling your numbers, especially if you're involved in a twenty group and need to report your numbers. Getting a quick mail merge file for your best customers or one that haven't been in for a while is a snap.

Our system takes your financial info and picks through all the data to get you what you need to make timely business decisions. Not a monthly report from your Accountant 3 weeks after the month is over, but daily and right down to the hour reporting.

Get your info on the go. No need to dial in to your shop computer or wonder at lunch how the shop is doing. We can put it in your fingertips in seconds. Even on your cell phone. Your data is protected with the highest level of security from Microsoft Azure Cloud Services and we do not share your data.

At the end of each day, you can get an email, text message or both giving you a quick look into your sales for the day, week, month and an overview of what's still in the shop. For multiple locations, each of your Managers can get a customized message each day.

Sample Reports

These are just a few of the reports available
