Your Recon Skills Don’t Get You Paid

You have a passion for your craft. You process a lot of cars, all day long, every day.  You like the work and you’re good at it. That’s why you turned your passion into your business.  And while your craft is your business, it’s the administrative work that gets you paid, and that starts on the front end.  Collecting accurate vehicle information and vehicle condition upfront will save you time and headaches down the road.

This starts with recording the VIN, Stock, and or Tag Number and with it, information about each car – make, model, year, features, etc., providing positive identification of the car you are working on. As important as it is, this information is useless if those 17 digits are not written down or transposed correctly. If you can’t identify the car you fixed, you may not get paid for it.

Photos are another important part of your documentation.  Before and after photos are more than a testimony to the quality of your work, in most cases, they are a requirement for invoicing.  Organizing these photos, in the right order, for easy reference later can be difficult and time-consuming.  The same is true for written text.  If a note gets missed, or put in the wrong file, you might end up with egg on your face, and it could cost you financially as well.

ReconPro™ can provide solutions to these obstacles.  It digitally captures the VIN and can attach photos and notes to the file so it is all stored together as proof of your work.  The software can even warn you if a work order has already been created for that VIN, so you can avoid duplications.

From first touch to last, ReconPro gives you the peace of mind that your customers’ information is captured and stored correctly, so you can focus on the work.  And when that work is completed, you’ve got it all captured and available on the invoice. That’s what gets you paid.
