Running a profitable shop is a challenge. You’re probably running the numbers multiple times a day—in your head, on paper, in your shop management system—to figure out where you are financially and where you need to be. There are so many considerations with owning a shop, some of them requiring extensive thought and planning, that it’s important to use automated systems whenever possible.
Running a shop today is not easy. It’s not like the “good old days” when the shop owner owned the shop and the land it was on, did repairs and ran things alone (or with a family member helping), and knew every customer personally.

Our friend, let’s call him Jim, is a great mechanic. He’s even better at writing service orders and taking care of his customers. Like many good mechanics, after years of providing great service at someone else’s shop, he decided to make the transition to opening his own shop.
