Here are a few ideas on how you can increase your efficiency when using digital inspection forms.
- When you note something during the inspection that needs attention, you can immediately add an operation to the case, right on the form.
- You only need to identify failed components or other issues. When you are done, everything else gets checked off automatically as passing–without extra clicks.
- You can add notes, so you have additional detail whenever it’s needed.
- You can use any desktop or mobile device you like, including phones and tablets, so you can complete all paperwork for the inspection at the vehicle.
- The inspection form can then be sent via a link to your customer, who can pull the form up and save it as a PDF if they wish. You don’t have to scan and email the form to them.
- You can customize inspection forms to your needs, including DOT forms.
- The platform accommodates multiple forms
- Everyone in your service department can find the completed inspection forms easily. No digging around for paperwork.
Digital Inspections = Better Service + More Upsell
Digital inspections help keep issues from falling through the cracks because you can add repair operations to the case right as you are doing the inspection…which means you can bring more revenue to your shop while giving your customer better, more complete service.
Once you note a needed repair on the digital inspection form, you can immediately start the process of getting that customer an estimate–including checking for parts. Your customers are not automatically notified when you add the operation to the case. You’ll be able to follow your standard estimating process before sending the estimate for approval.
Doing regular walk-around inspections reduces your liability and provides a valuable service to your customer.
If you note issues like dented fenders during intake inspection, you can avoid finger pointing on the cause — a customer won’t be able to claim a dent happened while the vehicle was in your shop. If you spot maintenance issues before they cause downtime for your customers, you’ll be seen as a trusted partner.
