About Shop4D

Production bottlenecks cost 99% of repair shops 2 hours per tech, every day! That inefficiency is a leading reason why the average shop owner is spending 51% of their day wrenching in the bay instead of working to grow their shop. What if you could grow sales, get the owner out of the bay, and do it without adding any new employees or equipment? That’s the power of Shop4D, the shop management system designed to solve the biggest problem facing the automotive industry: the technician shortage. Shop4D SHOP4D Shop 4D Shop 4 D Shop4 D

If you are serious about your business, this is the program for you

I am a frothing at the mouth avid fanatic of this software. I've literally kicked a rival company out of my shop because I told him, we are lifers. I genuinely feel like the team there care about our business and really want the best, from [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and my boys [SENSITIVE CONTENT] at Tech Support. I cannot believe we ever managed with Mitchell. I've sung my praises for this software to everyone in my 20 group and all of my friends in the industry. Its slick, it's modern, and it works. And it keeps working because they keep tweaking it and LISTENING to their users. Other companies in other industries should take notice!

PROS

I love how easy this is to use. There's a learning curve, but after you learn, it's easy. I love that they have weekly trainings so I can learn what new features came out. I feel that there is support in place, I never feel alone. When I utilize the tech support I am grateful that they are stateside and speak clear and perfect English. They are always so helpful too and I feel like they are my friends. I lovingly call them my NerdHerd and contact them anytime I have a question or need a quick reminder on how to do something. I've never felt talked down to, I've never felt rushed or ignored when I needed help. Having this software really gave us a great view on where our weaknesses were so we could address them. The reports are the most robust I've seen! I feel like we know everything about our business. We are on track to meet some serious goals and I feel like this software was the last piece of the puzzle we needed to really get where we want to be.

CONS

The hardest part of this software was learning this software. I'm highly skilled in the computer area and I struggled a little in the first week. After 4 weeks I had the complete hang of it (or so I thought) then I did a training session and learned way more! Switching from Mitchell to Shop4d was difficult but so worth it!! I'd never go back.

Reason for choosing Shop4D

We wanted something modern with serious metric tracking so we could get serious about our business. Shop4d checked the right boxes.

Game Changer

I started as an APM RPM Toolkit customer. The knowledge and monitoring was so critical. Learning what numbers made a difference to success. I was fortunate to have found the courage to not be scared and learn things that I can do better. When Shop 4D was released, it was a no brained for me. After seeing what monitoring did, to be able to implement real time monitoring and be able to make changes he literally turned my business into a business. The 4D team has the most amazing in house tech support. I don’t know where my business would be but I guarantee it wouldn’t be where it is. It is life changing and I’m grateful every day for the opportunities that have come my way. Shop4D is an opportunity to shortcut the road to success. To have all of the business data, customer data and employee data all in one easy to navigate limitlessly functional and loaded with more features that are actually needed in this line of business is unlike any other that I’ve seen. Don’t be sold by imitations and inferior sales tactics. Go for the win!

PROS

The layout and the process really make business efficient and, for lack of a better word, easier for all!

CONS

I can’t think of any at the moment. It’s a hard question to ask when you love it all so much.

Reasons for switching to Shop4D

Rpm tool kit user when 4D was released and it was a no brained after seeing the success and positive changes in the program.

The Full Package

Completely Satisfied.

PROS

Shop4d is game changing. It is like drafting the number one pick for a struggling team. It provides organization, transparency and profit management in one package. It also includes full CRM capabilities, as well as the tools to set targets, monitor progress and learn how to affect the most critical key performance indicators. It was easy to integrate into our shop because the Shop4d technical support and onboarding teams are well-trained and prompt in all that they do. Simply put: Shop4d is the full package for auto repair business management.

CONS

I once believed Shop4d to be expensive. Compared to some point of sale programs for auto repair, it has the highest cost. Now I believe that using another management program will cost your company more than the monthly subscription to Shop4d: Shop4d will find you money to make. I wish that there was a website integration feature so that the program synchronized with a company website planner where clients could reserve appointments online. Management would monitor the calendar to approve, deny or change appointments based on availability. It would certainly eliminate data entry on my end when clients send email appointment requests and ultimate save time.

Reasons for switching to Shop4D

I believe in the RPM Toolkit and having my point of sale program synchronize with it was crucial. I wanted a more streamlined ability to send work to technicians, have the inspection report completed (with pictures!) and sent back for an easy estimate build using Shop4d's AI. Saves me hours every day.

One Stop Shop Management System

Overall Shop4D has changed our lives, not just mine, it has change all of us. Our Shop is a better place to work, our customers get a better finished product, Shop4D support is by far the best support in the world. WE have never ask for help and not had a return in less that 5 minutes with resolution every time, Our overall experience is AWESOME!!

PROS

We previously used five different sources of software to manage our business, and then it was a labor to coordinate the information. Shop4D does all that we were doing plus much more and it is all sync'd and coordinated every single day. That gives us the ability to manage our efforts and direct them to improvement, which we do daily with all workers and staff. It has made a huge difference.

CONS

It would be nice to be able to toggle repair order to an estimate, we can change from the estimate to a repair. When I find something I do not like, I suggest an improvement to the development team and so far in the last four years of use, they have made changes and repairs to my requests.

Reason for choosing Shop4D

Shop4D was a better bang for the buck, it had an internal marketing module, it sync'd with our accounting system, and most of all the support team was live and very helpful, and they still are four years later.

Reasons for switching to Shop4D

We were using 5 different software to manage our store at a cost of about $2400 a month and it was a lot of work to get the financial information needed to run our store, We switched to 4D and save a lot of money and we now us one software and it is sync'd and coordinated every single day. Accurate and transparent clean information lets us mange our shop to a higher level of performance than ever before.

Great software. Wouldn't use anything else

From the people to the software... all of it is top notch.

PROS

There are so many features it would be impossible to list them all. This software was designed by shop operators. It's extremely impressive. The transition was very smooth from our old POS.

CONS

Give me time to try to come up with one.

Reason for choosing Shop4D

We tested and paid for All Data. There is no comparison. We never took the dive into All Data because it just wasn't up to par.

Reasons for switching to Shop4D

RO Writer is very old technology. We needed what shop4d offers.
