DealerTrax Shop Manager

DealerTrax was designed specifically for use with automobile service and repair shops. DealerTrax is a totally customizable product that can fit your business. 

If you have a large shop or just want features that you don't see in our lighter versions, such as parts and labor estimating, quoting, service and parts sales analysis, customer service reminders, enhanced customer and vehicle history, then Shop Manager Professional may be your choice. If you have either or both of our lighter packages, you can continue to use them along with our Professional version.

We have many levels of software to choose from. If you are running a small shop (1-2 bays) and you just want to create professional work orders, then purchasing our ShopOrder may be the way to begin. ShopOrder will allow you to create nice, neat work orders with the customer and vehicle information as well as the parts and labor. Inventory control and canned parts and labor jobs are also enabled in ShopOrder. This program can also be used as a Point of Sale system for a parts store. Shoplite can be upgraded to any of our higher versions when you decide you need more power.

If you have a larger shop (2-5 bays and several technicians), you may want to look at ShopLite. This program allows you to create work orders, manage inventory, schedule service, run sales reports and export your work to popular accounting programs like QuickBooks) and Peachtree). Customer history is also enabled in this version. A Point of Sale Interface is included. ShopLite can be upgraded or used at the same time as either our higher or lower versions. (ShopOrder in the work area, ShopLite in the Office)

Your business may also be involved in the sale of automobiles. Our Sales Manager Professional can help you manage that part of your business as well. The integration between our Shop Manager Pro and Sales Manager Pro will allow you to share customers, vehicles and repairs between all three of your departments, sales, service and parts.
