About ARI

ARI is a cloud-based auto repair software solution designed to help independent mechanics, mobile technicians, car dealers, and shops manage vehicle inspections, spare part inventories, client communications, VIN decoding and license plate recognition. Repair businesses can list services in an online booking directory, receive requests from clients, and approve/deny appointments from within the application.

With a range of modules for accounting, a built-in spare parts database, client relationship management, invoicing, estimation, car diagnostics, and more, ARI streamlines the entire repairing lifecycle for businesses. It lets mechanical shops diagnose a vehicle using customizable inspection checklists, detect damage to create job cards, assign work to mobile technicians, order spare parts, raise invoices on services, and send automated reminders to clients. Additionally, professionals can maintain and store details about new and recurring customers such as addresses, payment modes, GPS coordinates, and past visits in a centralized repository.

ARI provides custom invoicing templates along with a preview functionality, which businesses can utilize to add brand logos, colors, fonts, and signatures and rewrite parts of forms specific to service requirements. It also comes with eSignature capabilities, which allow businesses to receive customer signatures on mobile devices before sending final invoices via emails.

Loved this application. It helped startup and run my invoicing for 2 years now.

Loved this application. It helped startup and run my invoicing for 2 years now.

Pros

Very easy to navigate and keep updates with customers over the time the vehicle is in the shop. This gives the customer a general time and less back and forth.

Cons

No labor times. I would like to have vehicle labor times for each VIN matched vehicle to the invoice.

On a day-to-day basis soap the system works excellent I can get a lot of information about the vehicle and working on to make sure that I'm doing the correct repairs all I know an excellent Abby great software

Pros

It's constantly growing two years ago when I started with this company they didn't have the VIN to scan didn't have a lot of things in love features that they have no they're constantly growing and getting better I enjoy working with the software every day me and my customers happy. the price they're unbeatable I've looked into several other companies and I can't come near the price of what they did offer so thanks guys

Cons

Occasionally when I go to save a vehicle it saves multiple times I don't know if it's due to my phone service or do to the app but that sometimes gets frustrating then I have to go back in one by one erase all the multiple copies of that vehicle
