Shop Boss Pro is a MUST HAVE!

There are so many things we love about Shop Boss. Most importantly it is extremely user friendly. It takes time and money to train employees on software. If you can navigate around the internet, you can effectively use Shop Boss!

Pros

User friendly, ability to access online (nice for us to check in while on vacation), quality, constantly adding new features to keep up with the technological changes, excellent price point. We also appreciate the customer service, often times the owner, Chris is the one to directly contact us to answer and questions we have or customize the software to fit our needs. Shop Boss has excellent reports that give us an instant snap shot of where our business is financially at any given time.

Cons

None, if ever there is a concern it is addressed immediately!

Excellent Shop Management software at a very affordable price point.

If you have a small to medium shop and are looking for a simple and yet powerful tool to be able to manage your vehicle work flow and be able to access from anywhere anytime, it simply cannot be beat.

Pros

Very quick to get up and running. I was able to log in and instantly start entering customers, making invoices. The internet based log in is a huge plus as I can take paper work home and log in to finish up RO's. I run a custom high performance BMW shop and had some unique needs and I was able to enter support requests and was amazed when within the hour I was called by the technical support team to review my needs and they where able to implement changes to the software immediately. When you can communicate directly with the software developer on call, that is a huge plus. One feature I really enjoy is the ability to send my customers updates to their RO via email or text and even upload pictures with the invoice so customers can see exactly what is happening with their vehicle. For a shop that deals exclusively with custom workmanship, my customers really enjoy this feature. Overall I have been very impressed by this software and for the small shop owner it works excellent.

Cons

This is basically a 'Front End' based software and does not really focus on financial management. To fully implement the financial side of things you will need to use Quick Books. At the same time this keeps it simple. Quick Books is also the most recognized small business financial management tool available, so the fact the software integrates with Quick Books is a plus. Their have been some minor developmental issues, but as said above the tech support is awesome and they will generally resolve any issues on the fly within a short amount of time, sometimes within the hour. Not really any cons to this software at all.

ShopBoss Review

We decided Shop Boss took a lot of additional time trying to get everything typed up but other than that it was a great program.

Pros

The software was easy to navigate. Its functionality was great with its color coding.

Cons

We did not like writing in our labor descriptions or parts descriptions. We found that in order to re read what you wrote you would have to save it, look on the main page of thE repair order then go back in and scroll through the line that you type the description and find where the spot to edit. In that line only 10 words or so would fit so you had to use the arrows to get through the entire description.

Automotive Business Game Changer

When we started with SBP nearly 3 years ago my crew didn't see the need to move from our carbon paper based tickets, hand written estimates, and "I think we need" inventories. After we fully implemented the software everyone couldn't believe the hundreds of steps it saved us each day, and the value of the historical data it provided us. Since we started our little shop has had over 16,000 repair orders. I cannot even imagine doing all this on paper again.

Pros

Ease of use, responsiveness to our needs for assistance or feature improvements.

Cons

I haven't had time to implement so many of the most powerful features yet.

Best shop software to date!

I cant recommend this enough

Pros

runs on any web device web based no software to install the support is amazing, problems are fixed immediately. good EULA I feel that my data is safe and customer information will not be sold or used by a 3rd party. I was looking for a way to run the shop without using the Windows operating system. I realized that I wanted a web based program. Shop Boss Pro is THE answer! Feature rich, easy to use and learn. With the best customer support I have ever received from ANY company hands down. I use it on computers loaded with Ubuntu Linux, with ipads and one windows machine. allows us to run the shop completely paperless, from vehicle intake to right before the invoice is printed, there is no paper. accessible from any computer online. Absolutely a 5 star system. can be run on older computers, no server costs or the costs of constantly upgrading computers. an absolute bargain!

Cons

honestly, none so far that the developer has not fixed within hours.
