Here’s a great idea for efficiency and compliance: Standard Repair Times.
These could be as simple as providing jobs in the system pre-setup with Parts and Labor, so that a single click will apply it all to a Repair Order.
A larger shop could really make use of defining standard times for jobs and invoicing the work based on those standards. These standards can also be used to identify where techs really excel in certain areas, learn who are the best people for different jobs, and if fleet work is being submitted to head office, the system can compare the repairs against the appropriate standard repair time for approval compliance.
It’s all based on VMRS codes so your business analysis can be made using industry standards that make sense.
