BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY Launches Time Clock For Mobile Manager Pro

Technicians can now clock in and out of assigned labor items from the tablet they use to perform digital inspections.

Auto repair shop owners now have a new tool at their disposal with BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY‘s latest update, “Time Clock” for Mobile Manager Pro. Utilizing this feature will accurately credit technicians with their actual labor time. Keeping track of technicians’ labor time is essential for running productivity reports and managing a shop’s overall labor margin.

Bolt On Technology - Logo“Labor time efficiency is a crucial component of a shop’s productivity,” said Mike Risich, founder and CEO. “It is important to know how long a job is billed for, and how long it takes for the technician to complete it. To help shops with this process, we have integrated the time clock feature into our Mobile Manager Pro software.”

Technicians can now clock in and out of assigned labor items from the tablet they use to perform digital inspections. Each work order displayed in Mobile Manager will contain a clock icon. From here, technicians can clock into one or all of the line items on a work order. In addition, other technicians can be clocked into other line items on the same work order. The company says this feature will help provide an accurate record of all the various things that happen in a shop.

“As more shop owners incorporate our mobile technology – like tablets – into their shop operations, we constantly seek to improve processes,” said Frank Dragoni, director of national sales and corporate partnerships. “The time clock has been one of the most requested features from our customers. This moves shops toward drastically increasing revenue through efficient operations.”

Once the technician clocks out, the time recorded is automatically transferred back into the shop management system (SMS). The time spent clocked in will show as the technicians’ “actual hours.” When using the time clock for jobs on the same work order, the time punched in is divided between labor items. Time is divided according to each labor item’s billed time.

Time Clock adds another layer of depth to the Mobile Manager Pro software, which replaces traditional tech worksheets, paper inspections and inaccuracies from potentially sloppy writing. Time Clock has been released for locations using Mitchell 1 or NAPA TRACS, but will be rolled out to all supported SMS in the very near future.
