Cloud Based ARM Software Features

The Auto Repair Manager software (“ARM”) is the premier point of sale and management
software designed specifically for the auto repair and maintenance industry.

  • Unlike most shop management programs available in the market today, our software was designed and developed not merely by programmers, but by individuals with over 100 years of combined experience in the automotive industry.
  • Our software has been operating in numerous auto repair stores, including large franchise chains, for over 20 years and is the simplest and fastest system for writing up customers and generating invoices.
  • Repeat customers can be issued an estimate in less than a minute.
  • We do not require any long term contracts or a large up-front investment. All you pay is the monthly fee and you can cancel at any time you no longer wish to use the software. We are proud to state that we have never lost a customer unless that customer closed the shop.
  • Highest level of security insures that only you and your authorized personnel have access to your valuable customer information. Role assignments insures that only you would have access to the most sensitive information. With over 100 years of combined experience in the automotive industry we have designed our program to protect shop owners with single or multiple locations from losses. For example, all of our competitors’ software allows a crooked employee to change the date of the computer, and thus the date of the invoice, to a future date so that the sales from that invoice is not counted in your daily sales today, and the money can be pocketed by the unscrupulous employee. Our system immediately detects and reports any such event.
  • Our software by default insures that many features are protected and is only accessible by the shop owner. These security measures are completely customizable to prevent losses.
  • Our reports have been designed by our team with over 100 years of experience in the auto repair industry. You can generate an estimated profit or loss statement (up to 99% accuracy) within seconds of the end of the week or month. Therefore, you are always aware of your profit and loss situation.
  • Our system allows you to send marketing emails to your customer base for either maintenance service reminders or even reminders for maintenance recommendations you made the last time you serviced that customer’s car. You also have the choice of sending the reminders by post card or letter if you choose not to send by e-mail.
  • Worry free backups. As long as you have a PC with internet access you have access to your customer’s data. Zero down-time or data losses or a need for daily backups. We’ve got that covered so you can focus on your business.
  • If you lose your connection to the internet, you are still able to write up and cash-out customers until your connection is restored.
  • State-of-the-art technology allows you to access your data securely from any remote computer simply through a web browser. As long you are online you would have access to your data.
  • Unlike our competitors, we don’t require that you purchase expensive multiple licenses for each additional computer in your shop. You can have as many PCs in your location as you need to view and update your invoices.
  • For customers who prefer to have their data stored locally at their location we provide a Desktop Version of Auto Repair Manager with full features and reports, which runs completely off-line and does not require internet access.
  • Have your customer history always at your fingertips.
  • Credit card processing built into the software with one of the most competitive rates to securely process credit cards or debit card transactions.

  • Free technical support and training over the web.
