December Feature Product – v10 Job Builder

December 5, 2017 - Author: PBS

v10 Job Builder is a feature where your staff can easily look up parts and associated labour on all makes directly from your PBS system.

Here are the top 5 reasons dealers are adding Job Builder to their DMS.

1. Staff no longer have to switch from PBS to external products, and then back again, to look up Parts/Labour and then check availability.

2.  It’s VIN specific. Whether a Tech is recommending additional work from a Dispatch screen, or a Parts or Service Advisor is looking up Parts/Labour for an existing Estimate or RO…Job Builder automatically uses the VIN on the current transaction saving you time (and potentially selecting inaccurate Parts/Labour).

3.  Pricing accuracy. Once job is selected in Job Builder, the system automatically uses your default price codes, taxes, fees, shop supplies, etc. Staff will never misquote again.

4.  It’s customizable! Dealer specific associated opcodes can be added in advance on the fly. This is a great way to make sure your staff are always quoting an alignment when replacing a tie-rod.

5.  Stay competitive. Would you rather your staff quote ‘book’ time, ‘average’ time or ‘high’ time?  You choose what hours Job Builder will quote.

To learn more, feel free to call 1-800-665-6304 x 190, or register here to attend one of our Webinars, hosted every Tuesday at 10AM MST & Thursday at 2PM MST throughout the month of December.

August’s FEATURED product, Electronic Repair Orders (ERO)

August 1, 2017 - Author: PBS

Increase communication and shop efficiency with Electronic Repair Orders. ERO gives your technicians the ability to clock on and off of jobs, request parts and additional work without leaving their station, as well as type the cause and corrections for completed work.

ERO is extremely flexible and can be set up the way you run your shop, by either pre-assigning work to the appropriate technician, or allowing the system to auto-dispatch jobs based on priorities and technicians’ skills. The Dispatch grid provides a live view of your shop, allowing you to monitor the progress of each job in real time, while visual alerts highlight when you are approaching promise times.

This powerful tool will ensure you fill your shop to capacity, increasing revenue and making the most effective use of available time and technicians.
