How to Free Yourself From Your Heavy Duty Shop

How to Free Yourself From Your Heavy Duty Shop

What if you could accomplish more and feel in control, all while not having to be at the shop as much?

Most heavy-duty shop owners are physically tied to their shop. As profitable as a heavy-duty shop can be, the pendulum swings the other way too: it can take you down financially if you are not careful.

This is one reason many owners insist on personally reviewing every job before it is billed. And if their shop management software lives on a server in the shop, or they do things on paper, the only way to do this is to physically be at the shop.

You can’t take vacations without coming back to a mess. It’s very painful just to get away.

Another reason is the idea that unless you see the technicians, the work isn’t getting done. The reality is that seeing them has nothing to do with whether they are getting work done. Some techs are in the shop all day and get very little done.

Freedom From the Heavy Duty Shop

What if you could free yourself from having to be at the shop, but still get everything you want done? What if you could feel in control, and make sure work gets done, regardless of where you happen to be?

Fullbay gives you the ability to see work coming in, know that it’s getting processed, and know that the technicians are getting the complaint or request, just as the customer brought it in. You can bring all this up on your phone or tablet in seconds. Go hunting more and be able to check in on the shop. Attend more of your kids’ sporting events. Or just spend more time at home.

The alternative is to stay tied down to the shop. You will eventually burn out, and not want to keep doing it. Your employees will be affected, your customers will be affected, and most importantly your family will be affected. You will be tied down to the shop as long as you own it.
