Digital Vehicle Inspections. Can a mobile device really do all that?

Spend your money on workshop tools that will ultimately make you more money. It’s all about return on investment. 

Across every level of your business, a tablet or mobile phone solution instantly dissolves a whole host of time-consuming tasks and administrative headaches. This goes on to set up a seamless experience for your customers, who then want to come back again and again and again.

At Microhouse, COSTAR Mobile is that very solution. Think of it like a superhighway of information processing and delivery that you can hold in your hands.


Here’s how it works

  • Front of house uses COSTAR to create a paperless job card at the time of booking. This holds all the information your team will need to execute the job and generate a quote or invoice, which is also pushed through to COSTAR Mobile.
  • When your technicians arrive in the morning, they fire up COSTAR Mobile on their device and the details of every job for that day appear right before their eyes.
  • Tablet in hand, your team begins with a vehicle pre-inspection, taking and attaching photos, making notes and suggesting any additional work required, which front of house can seamlessly put to the customer and facilitate quick approvals.
  • All the information your team puts into COSTAR Mobile instantaneously transposes to your COSTAR desktop software to seamlessly populate repair orders and invoices. Simply email or use COSTAR Enhanced SMS to text the information to your customers.


2. Why it matters

  • Remove the hassle of constant paperwork

    Is there a business owner alive who is not completely sick and tired of the time suck and risk of error intrinsic to manual paperwork!?

  • Reinforce trust with transparency

    Accountability with time stamped photos and digital pre-inspection reports is a game-changer for how your clients will perceive and receive your business.

  • Allow your customers to make informed decisions

    Information is power. Your real-time analysis backed up by photos, comments and recommendations removes resistance and uncertainty to speed up your customer’s decision-making.

  • Protect yourself from false damage claims

    It’s unfortunate, but true, that most workshops experience this challenge. Nip it in the bud before it even has the chance to begin.

  • Increase revenue per invoice

    Improved customer experience and reduced administrative time have a direct impact on your bottom line. It’s as straightforward and simple as that.
