Valuable, Versatile, Vehicle Condition Reports

Vehicle Condition Report Forms

Knowledge is power, and you can’t know what you don’t know. These are two undisputed truths, and they are all you need to understand the importance of Vehicle Condition Reports.

Think about your own business. Whether you repair vehicles, sell them, lease them, or all of the above, do you have easy and reliable access to the condition of every vehicle your business has touched? How complete are those reports? How legible are they? How consistent is the quality and completeness of your vehicle condition reports from one to the next? If you didn’t answer “100%” to each of those questions, then you should consider vehicle condition report software included with our mobile software solutions InspectionNotes and ReconMonitor.

 

How can improved reporting make a difference for your business? A short list includes:

  • Perform inspections including photos, videos, and notes to document prior damage and defend against false claims.
  • Customizable digital forms can trigger additional steps or activities based on question responses. If the vehicle arrives for one service, but the inspection reveals other issues, you can automatically create an estimate for the additional repair to present to the customer.
  • Forms can enforce process to ensure all steps are completed in the most efficient order, review data as it’s entered, and trigger next process steps and notifications.
  • Updates to vehicle condition are fast and easy. A VIN scan brings up the latest condition report for editing and all changes are logged, so history audits are a breeze.
  • Any conditions indicated on an inspection can trigger additional estimates or work orders for on-device or quick-link signature approvals.
  • Digital reports are formatted to suit your business, with your brand, and always presentable in digital or printed formats.
  • Post the report on your website to assure the buyer of the vehicle condition.

Your business operations and customer satisfaction will benefit from quality vehicle condition reports. Contact us for more information and a free demonstration of our powerful vehicle condition report app.

Press Release: DMS Integration with Frazer Computing

AutoMobile Technologies Integrates With Frazer Dealer Management Software


ReconMonitor’s certified integration helps dealerships seamlessly manage reconditioning workflows.


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — AutoMobile Technologies, Inc., the industry leader in auto reconditioning software, today announced that it has partnered with Frazer Computing, Inc. to provide integrated vehicle reconditioning management capabilities to users of Frazer Dealer Management Software.

“Frazer is thrilled to be working with AutoMobile Technologies,” said Michael Frazer, president of Frazer Computing. “Making it simple for our 19,000 dealers to work with the partners that best suit their needs, and making the process easy is an important part of what we do!”

AMT’s ReconMonitor provides end-to-end visibility of the vehicle reconditioning process from acquisition through all phases of the recon process and helps identify, process, or vendor inefficiencies that increase cycle time. The software includes both mobile and back-office modules to ensure everyone in the reconditioning cycle is informed about where and when work is required. This keeps cars moving at optimal speed and results in fewer days to frontline status.

The certified integration of ReconMonitor with the Frazer DMS will allow dealerships better command and control of the recon process with full visibility as each vehicle progresses toward frontline readiness. Other notable dealer benefits of ReconMonitor include:

  • Mechanical and Cosmetic Inspections – Multiple inspections per vehicle, including OEM Certified Pre-Owned Inspections, Cosmetic Inspections, and Vehicle Condition Reports.
  • Parts and Labor Hours Management – The system provides access to OEM parts & numbers, mechanical labor hours, and parts ordering.
  • Vehicle ROI – Know the estimated and actual cost of repairs and keep all vehicles in your targeted ROI.
  • Vendor Management and Payment – The system manages all of your vendors and their workloads and shows you how much to pay each vendor per repair.
  • Real-time Reporting – You and your team know the status and stage of every vehicle in process, and can quickly identify bottlenecks.

“Frazer Computing understands the needs of its customers and has built its reputation by providing software to help their dealers better understand their own operations. We are proud to enhance that value with ReconMonitor’s efficient workflow management capabilities in vehicle recon,” said Paul Maximov, CEO of AutoMobile Technologies, Inc. He added, “Dealers lose an average of $35-50 per day that cars spend undergoing reconditioning. Our partnership with Frazer will allow dealers to reduce costly delays and make better vehicle recon decisions early in the cycle. That results in better inventory availability and ultimately, increased margins on vehicles sold.”

AutoMobile Technologies joins a diverse group of Frazer integration partners. To date,  Frazer works with more than 200 third-party vendors whose services are optimized and integrated with the Frazer DMS.
