As a garage or workshop owner, having an up to date calendar is essential to keep track of daily operations and ensure that tasks are completed on time. This is why we have integrated calendar functionality into our innovative garage management system.
Running our own garage, at TechMan, we understand the exact struggles of managing your garage, which is why our garage management system is designed from the ground up to add value to your business. Here are a few ways in which our calendars feature can benefit you!
Planning and managing employee workloads is essential to maintaining effectiveness in your garage’s operation. With our calendar feature, you have a clear picture of all the tasks and appointments scheduled for each day, week and month. An incredibly important tool in planning employee workloads and assigning the right technician to the right job.
With our garage management system, you will be able to see at a glance which employees are working on what tasks and when they are scheduled to be completed. In this way, it becomes easier to get a clear picture of employee availability, enabling you to better manage workloads.
With the calendars feature of our garage management system, you can now plan your garage operations more efficiently than ever.
All of your appointments, tasks and technician’s jobs available in a centralised place, enabling you to have a bird’s eye view of your workshop’s operation. This further helps you in scheduling, planning and management. For example, if you have several appointments scheduled for a single day, schedule the important tasks to be finished first while the less important ones are worked on at the end of the day, in case something more urgent arises.
When it comes to garage management, it’s easy to get distracted. However, this puts you at risk of forgetting important tasks and appointments. With features like the TechMan calendar and automated reminders, our garage management system enables you to set up reminders and alerts to ensure that you miss nothing.
These reminders can also be set up for tasks that need to be worked on regularly, such as vehicle inspections, oil changes and tire rotations. By setting up reminders well in advance, you can ensure that all tasks are completed on time and provide your customers with exceptional service.
Keeping track of the status and progress of each job in your workshop is crucial to ensure timely service as well as increased efficiency.
Our calendar feature not only allows you to assign tasks to your employees but also helps track the progress of each task from start to finish. It can automatically set up checklists for each job so that you know exactly what needs to be done, making it easier to monitor progress.
You can also use the calendar feature to keep track of the availability of your technicians and schedule tasks and appointments accordingly.
If you are looking to manage time more effectively, TechMan’s calendar is the perfect solution. Along with tracking the progress of each job, it also tracks the total time spent to get the job done. This lets you identify areas of improvement in terms of productivity, collaboration or resource allocation.
Created specifically for garages, we use TechMan within our own garage. Built to solve the core issues every garage faces, TechMan gives you greater oversight, greater control and allows you to maximise efficiency.
