Meet ProSpect, our new digital vehicle inspection app!

One of your regular customers pulls into your parking lot. You grab your tablet and head for the door. Imagine the look on your customer’s face when you smile and tell him, ‘Hi Bill, I’m going to get you checked in right here.”

The customer, taken aback at this, asks “How are you going to do that?” Then you show him your tablet running with the ProSpect app that is talking to the Manager SE shop management system in the office. “Not only can I inspect your car and note the condition of service items, but I can also include photos of any findings we might want to discuss with you.”

Meet ProSpect, an affordable digital vehicle inspection application that is seamlessly integrated with your Manager™ SE shop management system (version 8.0 or newer). The app supplements Manager SE with the ability to greet customers at the vehicle, begin the inspection and save the data for future reference.

Here are some highlights of how ProSpect can speed up your vehicle check-in and inspection processes — and help you work more efficiently:

  • Quickly ID vehicles using VIN decode or Plate-to-VIN lookup
  • Start Manager SE estimates right from a mobile device
  • Perform customized multi-point inspections (MPIs) – including tires
  • Document vehicle inspection findings with photos & tech notes
  • Apply Manager SE canned jobs to address vehicle issues found
  • Get faster approval of additional work needed on the vehicle

ProSpect is an add-on to the Manager SE system. You may connect several mobile devices and there is no set-up fee. This may be the right-sized digital vehicle inspection option you’ve been waiting for to take your shop to the next level of efficiency and impress more customers like Bill!

In future posts here in the ShopConnection blog we’ll specifically cover ProSpect features like Plate-2-VIN and creating your very own inspections. In the meantime, you can read more about ProSpect here:

Note: ProSpect is currently compatible with Apple devices; Android coming soon.
