The best out there, period.

I've had a few issues with my software since subscribing but support has gone above and beyond for me in helping solve them, emailing me in the middle of the night and on Sundays. That level of support is something you'd expect out of a $250/month software.

PROS

ARI is very reasonably priced for the amount of features. I don't know how I managed my business without it. It's perfectly simple and not overburdened with useless features for smaller shops. No hidden or extra fees is the best part.

CONS

3 months ago I would have had a few things that I disliked about the software but with their latest update everything I wanted and more has been added. Sometimes I stumble on weird, very minor glitches but I believe it's due to me using an iPhone as none of these exist on my tablets.

Reason for choosing ARI

The price and the fact that ARI had so many included features and functions that weren't either only available on the highest plan or cost a lot extra. ARI seemed simple and was cost effective.

Reasons for switching to ARI

I needed a software better aimed at auto repair while also not breaking the bank (quickbooks $10/mth)

Mike's Auto Repair review

I use ARI for invoicing mainly. I have a few parts in inventory I'm beginning to use more.

PROS

Invoicing is great but it has glitches.

CONS

Invoicing sometimes doubles billable items and labor. it does not always pull accurate totals and changes I have made. gets very frustrating having to go back and edit invoices. It also does not keep accurate records for end of year totaling. I have had invoices double items after I've totaled out and closed invoice. Makes a nightmare for going back and printing invoices for my accountant.

Reason for choosing ARI

Ease of use and price.

Vendor Response

Hello Thanks a lot for your feedback! We are working on a new update that should handle the doubling issues you mentioned! We hope to have it ready next week!
