Introduction to 819

We charge $375 for our Automotive Shop Management software. Compare our software to any on the market, it works on Windows & Mac's (& Parallels) on a network, wireless or hard wired, Our 'RO Status Board' was developed from a request by a shop owner, Labdog (our software) costs what some companies charge for a month. You really should compare...

In our shop we have eight computers and a server, each mechanic has their own laptop. Half of our computers, those in the offices are hard wired to Ethernet the mechanic's computers are wireless. The Server is an Apple G5 Xserve with three 700 GB hard drives. All of our computers are Apple Macs running OSX, with Parallels, a Windows Emulator installed to run vehicle Diagnostics software which often run on Windows only. Each new version of Labdog is tested with our staff.

In 1992, after building and managing an independent auto repair shop, P.A.T. Inc., for fifteen years, I realized that the standard business model just doesn't fit auto repair.

Over those twenty years, I attended numerous seminars, tried different software programs, listened to the guys with the latest 'secret'. I finally realized that there is a difference between the Daily Management of a business and the Accounting Management of a business and that the standard time management of auto repair (Flat-rate or commision), isn't really time management at all. I also learned that the software packages available for auto shop management, are not only 'Old School', but are also simply book accounting, put on a computer.



Computers have been in our shop since 1982, but it wasn't until we designed and produced our own software that auto repair finally made sense. Our software's focus is on the daily if not houly needs of our shop, we wanted to answer the questions:

If you are nodding your head and smiling, you should really take a look at our Auto Repair Shop software. . The most important thing you can do for your shop, your self and your employees is be serious about how long your mechanics are working on a customer's vehicle. We have a job time recording component to our software and a hand held time computer.

Labdog Auto Repair Shop software works on Windows and Mac computers, is Multi User, provides in-depth business Analysis and a simple labor profit process.
