Customer History

Have you had a customer come in that you did work for 6 months or a year ago?

Did it require you to search through file cabinets and boxes for hours to find a copy of that Invoice?

I'm sure you could have been doing something more profitable!

With Digital Wrench you can bring up a customers old Invoices in Seconds by clicking on the customer history button. All Work Orders for
that customer display allowing you to pick the one you want. You can look at all the parts, labor, etc. for that Work Order. You can even print
the customer history you want; for one Work Order, or for all Work Orders! Don't work hard, work smart using our software in your auto,
boat, or other repair shop.


Labor can be imported from the Real-Time Labor Guide©, if you have that installed in your auto shop.

Add labor 'on the fly' for work you don't do often or any time you want.

Labor can be added to a labor list you can use over and over again. If you change your labor rate the change to the labor will be automatic
unless you do an override for that job.

Labor descriptions can be a couple of words or up to 1000 characters.

Inventory and parts as you go

Items can be entered into the Work Order as you buy them or from inventory.

Inventory is standard in Digital Wrench, however, if you do not want to use inventory, you can enter parts as you use them for each work

When entering inventory, parts are put into categories to help you find them quicker.

Example: Drive Shaft, Universals, Heater & Air Conditioning, etc. - there is no limit on categories.

The quantity in stock, quantity on order, date purchased, cost, retail, number sold, location, vendor, minimum in stock,  part number, date last
sold and number sold, are all tracked for you. When parts are ordered, the quantity is automatically tracked in the On Order field for that part.
When they are received, the quantity received is put in the quantity in stock and that number is subtracted from the quantity on order.

As you make Work Orders, the parts are put On Hold, and that number is subtracted from In Stock. When the Work Order is completed, they
are taken away from the On Hold.

A mark up field is available for adjusting your retail price. You can also set a different markup for wholesale customers, great for an auto
shop that has fleet work.

The Major transaction report, the Activity Report, Shows the income for parts, labor, and other charges by category. It also shows the
technician information and Repair Order (Work Order) information. As you use the program, it will show you a comparison on the same time
period last year, last month, year to date, last year for same year to date, and all of last year. This is a great report for owners that like to keep
a close eye on trends.
