Greater Philadelphia-based Bolt On Technology announced it has increased the capabilities of its most popular automotive software solution, Mobile Manager Pro. Since its release last fall, the company says the software system has fueled greater efficiency and increased profits for hundreds of auto repair shops.

The company’s signature solution, in addition to enabling repair shop techs to take and text vehicle photos to customers, conduct digital multi-point vehicle inspections among a myriad of other functions, now comes fully equipped with the ability to create customized multi-point inspection forms.

“We have always positioned ourselves at the forefront of integration with shop management software,” Bolt On Technology founder and CTO Mike Risich said. “We will never stop in our quest for relentless innovation.”

Mobile Manager Pro’s most recent update features color-coded auto pre-canned technician notes and offers choices between quick or more comprehensive vehicle inspections. The company says the software dramatically improves customer approval times, from the national average of one hour and 17 minutes to 37 minutes.

The tablet or mobile device-powered program, with its ability to seamlessly submit via text or email a customer’s repair order or inspection report, along with photos illustrating needed repairs, makes the customer response process quicker and easier.
