Been using for about 5 months. App works well to keep track of repairs and repair history. Parts inventory feature is nice. I do wish they would incorporate a labor time look up like Motorguide or Alldata. Not sure if there is an API available for you to use in ARI but that would be a HIGHLY sought after feature among many of your customers. I thought I saw it as a "coming soon" feature in the past but I haven't been able to find it in the app. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the feedback. We are working out on a deal with Motor Data for the labor guides integration. We know this is a highly-requested feature, it's just very hard to get accurate data. As for the API, we have it in our plans for Q3. Thanks for your support

Still on the trial but will be going to pro soon! APP could be a little easier to navigate but isn't too bad. Wish there was an easier way to make new inspection templates with custom options(Example Brake lining could have the option to input a number like 20/32 or 16mm). Also it's a little difficult if you make a mistake you have to delete all work to get to it and after that you have to type all deleted inspection list over again. It's all little things tho app is jam packed with options!

Hello Thank you for your feedback. We are already working on a much better experience when creating custom inspection templates. Hopefully we will have the new feature ready soon.

Well this app would be headed in the right direction if the issues that it has would have been fixed back when people first complaine about. It still has the problem of not marking the invoice paid when you finalize. Plus now right after the update when you go to print the page that you go to pops up and goes away without even being able to actually print.

Hello, You can easily change the status of the invoice by opening it up, go to More, tap on Status and change to Paid. The Print function does mot currently work for S8, S9 and S9+. We will fix it ASAP
