Ask the Expert: How effective is creating my own checklist versus using inspection software?

Using software can save you and your customer valuable time.

Q: How effective is creating my own checklist versus using inspection software?

A: Besides the fact it takes up your valuable time, vehicle inspection software, such as Inspection Connection's ProSpec, saves the valuable time of your customers, which we all know is important to everyone striving to make it in the world today.

Quicker inspections and the ability to send electronic reports greatly cuts down on the time needed to complete the inspection and move on to performing necessary service repairs. Clients are able to leave in a lot less time than in other repair shops, making you stand out among the rest. Instead of creating multiple checklists for different inspections or using one long checklist, it is not as effective as the electronic database available in the palm of your hand. Inspection software, such as Inspection Connection's Prospec, allows shops to provide customizable coupons and utilize marketing tools for customers for upcoming services quickly and easily.
