Great Software!!!

I have never leased software, so when our old software went out, I tried over a dozen over the course of 2 years. When I finally found GPP, the rep was more than thorough in presenting it. I ran the trial version & I was hooked! The rep's support is second to none & he always responds quickly. I recommend Garage Partner Pro to any auto repair facility no matter the size of the business. I think I've been a customer since 2013. Will NEVER go anywhere else.

Pros

Ease of use & the absolutely astounding amount of information you get from the reports.

Cons

I can't think of a thing

We started with Garage Ptr's in 2000. It just gets better and better. Functions are easy to use

Tracking customers, inventory, job tracking. Its east to track ongoing jobs (restorations) which we do a lot of. I really recommend this to anyone who runs a auto service business. Customer service agent seems to always have an answer for me when I mess up.

Pros

Great software. If you run a business it will take a lot of things you had to do manually. Inventory
tracking has never been easier.

Cons

I wish that it would interface with Quick Books. It does have the accounting program but we have used QB and my bookkeeper likes it that way.

Long time use Customer

Pros

everything

Cons

does not interface with quick books

top of the line garage program

I have used this progam since 1991. From the start worked great. it had all the basics I needed to run a garage. It has developed into the most complete, easy to use garage progam there is. I started alone on a small scale.. now 22 years later I am still using it with a 3 bay shop and a towing business. From tracking inventory (usage and expences) to employee productivity , to invoicing and billing and customer history..etc.. With little or no training anyone with good basic computer skills and/or auto repair shop knowledge can run this program. Very user friendly with help notes and tags at every step. The developer Dan Scott is always there to help and explain, and even dial in to your computer to help. if call or email him he responds ASAP . When he goes in vacation he notifies everyone via email and checks his email for calls. I highly recommend this program to any and all automotive repair shops

Once your learn to use it, it preforms fine. No monthly fees. Very affordable for all it can do.

Pros

I can edit or modify any thing at any time. Nothings in stone. Monthly to yearly sales tracking is helpful.

It keeps getting better

Several years ago I was saying I can't make this system work for me. Today I wonder how I worked with out it. The system handles my expanding business well. It took some getting used to, but after that is a very simple system that does everything I need to manage my buisness. Accounts Receivable , monthly statements, monthly reports, tax reports etc. at my finger tips & fast. As you can see I am pleased with this program & appreciate Dan's support when necessary. He is an important part of this package too. This has been a great addition to my business and another secret to our continued success . We will be celebrating our 65th anniversary in business in 2014.

Great customer service!

I have had the Garage Partner software for 10 years now. My knowledge of computers is extremely low but Dan has always been very helpful to me in all situations. Whenever I don't understand how to get something to work for me, I just call Dan & he very patiently shows me how to do what is necessary. I could not ask for any better customer service than what he so graciously gives on a consistent basis. I would highly recommend this software to any one that is in the tire or automotive business. It is extremely easy to work & provides great information on all kinds of reports that are needed in our field.

Excellent invoicing and Shop Management Program

I've used several invoicing systems over the course of many years, Napa Tracs, Scott Systems, and Mitchell. This program works as good as any, if not better than most I've used. The big advantage here is Dan. He's always available and willing to answer any questions, and to lend technical support when needed. A product is only as good as the support behind it, and that's why Garage Partner is number 1. The program is also very reliable. I've never had any operational issues in the two plus years I've been using it, and plan to keep using for many more years to come. Worth every penny!!

Best bang for the buck

When we decided to open a repair and performance shop, we reviewed close to a dozen shop software applications. Some were way overpriced, some were impossible to understand. Others had little to no support. Others had pushy sales staff that would not take no. Then we found GPP. It was super easy to set up and support has been second to none. The author is always an email or call away and more than willing to go the extra mile to make your life easier. As well the cost of ownership is very affordable.

Best Automotive Repair Shop Software!!

After being in the automotive business for over 30 years and having used many software programs, Garage Partner is the easiest and best program we have used. The price is exceptional for all that it does! Dan's customer service is by far the best! He is always available and can fix anything! I would highly recommend Garage Partner to anyone looking for a great software program!

we use Garage Partner in our heavy truck and auto repair shop. Since 2001.

Very easy to maneuver, very forgiving for those of us that are not so tech savvy. Great reports, quick response time with customer support. Excellent sales reports for input to most any accounting software. Great value, superior product.

Count on it.

It's been too long for me to actually compare this software to others due to the fact that I've been a client for more years than I can recall. Well over a decade. Closer to two decades actually. That in itself speaks volumes.
