ARI

#1 Auto Repair Software solution for the automotive industry

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.

It’s been a long road with this system. It’s terrible for accounting. And it’s a real pain after invoicing to close a repair order. Nothing works automatically.

Pros

Inexpensive but I’m learning. Going to get a real invoice system now.

Cons

After update no longer allowed access. It’s rather embarrassing in front of clients. This will NEVER happen again cause I’m done.

Overall experience is five star still need assistance on having a merchant capabilities with their preferred providers so it makes it difficult and setting up. It’s over now using PayPal Venmo, and Zelle until merchant accounts can be set up.

Pros

Coming from the corporate gaming industry, IT, finance, and HR. Interned for two years with an independent in Exotics locally in Las Vegas that used Shop Monkey I feel that the software and customer support by far is superior for the cost incurred on a monthly basis. While in the Gaming Industry and rolling out Forrest migrations costs can be main deterrent when presenting to the finance department. I feel that the IT department can save money if properly planned, discussed and integrated with the finance departments. I tend to lean towards new innovatives and underdogs as they listen to their customer base know what truly is needed and implement as such.

Cons

Only thing that would be great is a 24 hour customer service or an assigned POC for accounts to assist in any operational glitches, customizations, or answering questions. Timing is critical when you have a customer waiting when trying to keep things consistent in my system and data scrubbed properly for estimates, invoicing and houses data.

Alternatives Considered

CCC ONE

Reasons for Choosing ARI

The cost incurred on a monthly basis was unacceptable to my budget and did not make any sense as they provide the same if not better product.

Reasons for Switching to ARI

Price point and knowing that as this company evolves things will only get better.
