A recent entrant into the garage management software market has announced a free 30-day trial of its web-based system, which it says will allow users to help the company mould future functionality within the software.
Czok’s Garage Software – which runs via web browser and is suitable for commercial vehicle workshops – is free for trial users and easy to set up, the company says, with no credit card or hidden fees required.
Users who wish to continue using the software following the trial can pay monthly, or at a discounted annual rate – but the company says it intends to extend free trials for users who provide constructive feedback on the system.
The software is updated automatically, and is compatible with any device that can run major web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Firefox. Cited benefits of the system include increased efficiency, affordability and user-friendly operability.
Features already listed by the firm include job management and technician assigning, fully customisable settings, and reporting functionality to provide an overview of a garage’s performance.
Users can keep track of all their contacts and their vehicles, create and track invoices, quotes and purchase orders – and can also benefit from stock control oversight, a calendar feature, and customisable user roles.
In addition, the software can be used to download, email and print documentation such as job cards, technician work sheets, invoices, quotes and purchase orders. The system incorporates live chat support, while all accounts are backed up daily to ensure data is secure and readily available.
“Garage software is generally one of these three: not user-friendly, ridiculously priced, or doesn’t do everything you need it to,” said Matthew Czok, who created the software whilst working alongside a car garage and wrapping business.
Keeping track of jobs, invoices and customer information at the garage was proving no mean feat, he explained – “so I decided to do some research and build the solution myself.”
“I plan to add features never seen before in the automotive software industry. I will continuously extend free trials of users that provide constructive feedback.
“I would recommend adopting the software now and start sending in as many requests for features as possible to help mould it to your solution.”
