About Digital Wrench

Digital Wrench is a repair shop management software designed to help repair shops handle orders, inventory, invoices, fleet maintenance, and more on a centralized platform. Administrators can customize the user interface according to business requirements, search for a specific item or labor job and utilize the labor logging functionality to record the actual time of repair.

Digital Wrench allows businesses to add information about orders, inventory parts, and charges including disposal fees to the system. Managers can gain insights into customer history, sort details by vehicle, and add organizational logos to invoices or estimates. Supervisors can also organize repair orders as jobs, mark items as canceled, and use the labor list to handle repetitive tasks.

Digital Wrench's optional modules enable repair shops to manage point of sale and marketing processes on a unified platform. Other features include to-do lists, reminders, data import/export, and scheduling.

Best Software I've found to date

Reviewed on 2020-06-26

They've always been professional and handled things as quickly as possible when possible.

They've always been professional and handled things as quickly as possible when possible.

Pros

Its super easy to use and train guys on. Allows my inventory to be tracked as well as my guys to clock in and out on jobs allowing us to bill out as much of our time as possible. Very affordable and has several features that shops need to function well.

Cons

I wish that there was some more customization available in certain area of our inventory/customer setup. I also wish we could run a web based version for access out of our mobile truck onsite. I would like it if our multiple computer setup would sync better/faster as that has caused some issues for us. Honestly I wouldn't mind paying for some of these items as additional upgrades to the program if the cost was reasonable.

Alternatives Considered

Fullbay

Reasons for Switching to Digital Wrench

Fullbay was too expensive, wasn't upfront on costs to transfer data over and has a monthly cost. Fullbay does a handful of things Digital wrench don't that would be nice but not worth the cost difference.

Response from VMT Software

Thanks for your comments. We do have technology we are looking at to perhaps allow your techs to create workorders and invoices out in the field. Currently you could use a VPN or a Terminal Service like TSP plus to accomplish that. You would need a network technician to set that up. You should also have a network technician look at your local area network to see if they can speed that up. Have them call us if you like.
Thank you.

Repair Order layout for a small shop

Reviewed on 2019-08-27

No problems. All is good.

No problems. All is good.

Pros

You can get started using the software and constructing R.O's immediately. As soon as I got the program, I started entering customer and vehicle information to build a customer base. I then opened a repair order and entered parts and labor of where I was on the vehicle; at the time. It helped me catch up in the shop. I like the fact that I don't miss posting labor or parts. My bottom line showed an immediate increase in daily sales. I'm bringing in more money because I'm not missing items that were repaired or should have been added to the R.O.

Cons

When the customer pays me in advance, the cash receivable doesn't immediately calculate correctly. I have to press the "R"/recalculate before it will add the money to my already growing parts and labor totals.

Lower cost and the ease of choosing my own repair order layout. The 50 plus choices was a blessing.

Response from VMT Software

Jim,
Thanks for the review.
As far as the adding payments or adding payments in advance, highlight the Repair Order, then click on the Add Deposit Button. This will calculate everything normally.

It is flawless in keeping record of my cashflow.

Pros

I find it hard to use. And there is really nothing for me to coment on. The Program works great but is not what I was expecting.

Cons

As many of the other Software's out there this is aiming for the "Selling" and "Money" side of things. It is certainly not catering to the Customer. When I purchased this I was hoping to get a Software that can easily show me repairs that I did for my customers but that is not the Case here.
I am disappointed that the Customer gets left out in the cold.
So if you are looking to serve your Customers you may want to look elsewhere. If you worried about the Money side of things this Software is more than capable to do that for you.

Response from VMT Software

Ralf,
Sorry to hear you're having trouble finding the customer history.

All RO's relate to a customer, so you can easily see all work done, all parts sold to any particular customer by clicking on the $ icon on the very first screen. Then, click on the Find Customer button, select the customer and all RO's with balances will immediately display. To see all RO's, just uncheck the Balances Only button.

You can also filter the repairs by one of the customer's vehicles, a date range, or even search parts or labor with a keyword like 'Oil' or 'Brakes' or whatever you choose, all from the same screen.

If you every have any difficulties, please let us know. We are happy to help. Plus, it is comments from our customers that enable us to keep enhancing and improving our software.

Thank you,

I started my own auto repair shop a year and a half ago. Was looking for a software to keep track of all repairs and inventory. Was refered to Digital Wrench who was using software for an ATV shop. Looked into it and tried demo and fell in love with it. Ordered full version right away. Other than the ease of use, The price was the best part of this software.

Pros

I like the ability to give my customers a detailed description of repairs performed and individual price of parts on one receipt.

Cons

It is rather difficult to find previous repairs for 1 customer.

Response from VMT Software

David,
Thank you for the comment.

There are two ways to find customer history.

Option 1

From the same screen where you would start a repair order follow the tabs to the right. You will see a tab called 1 Customer History. When you click on that tab you will be able to select your customer and see all the history.

Option 2

To find all RO's for one customer click on the $ icon from the main screen, click on Find Customer, select the customer. Unclick balances only to see all past Ro's. You can then filter them by date, vehicle, or search by a keyword to see all Ro's that have that word. Call and we'll walk you through it.

I cannot day enough good things about Digital Wrench. Our experience for the past 4+ years has been nothing short of amazing!!

Pros

We stumbled for the first year we started our own business. We were working off of paper invoices for our customers and our inventory was a mess! Within 15 minutes of installing this software, we were up and running and have not looked back. I cannot stress enough the ease of use and the security in knowing if there should ever be a problem, support is always there! The cost is below what would be expected for a program than can be virtually customized for any need! Completely satisfied!

Cons

As hard as I try to think of a negative... I just cannot.

Response from VMT Software

Thanks Dawn. Glad to hear Digital Wrench is working well for you.
