August 9, 2018—Auto Profit Masters has introduced the Shop4D management system, which gives shop owners of independent and franchise repair shops a complete and self-learning set of tools.
Shop4D uses AI to learn from every inspection, advisement and communication and proactively show the owner how to run the shop more efficiently and more effectively.
Shop4D uses intuitive tools from the first moment a vehicle arrives at the shop, where the camera on a tablet or cell phone reads the VIN and starts the check-in process. By the time the vehicle is dispatched, the technician already has access to recall and TSB information and the AI is already working to diagnose the vehicle from the second the ticket is started. As the tech is doing an inspection, Shop4D will source parts and begin to build the invoice.
AI is integrated in far more than the inspection process. Shop4D has incorporated and built AI into every aspect of the business, including:
- point of sale (POS)
- digital vehicle inspections
- customer communication and marketing
- parts ordering
- labor guides
- credit card processing
- management and measurement
The Shop4D enterprise software management tool doesn’t require any installation—it can be used on a shop’s existing devices (tablet, smartphone, laptop or computer).
