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

This app is amazing, especially for smaller auto repair shops. It does everything I need and I get a lot of positive feedback from customers about the digital estimates and invoices. I just wish invoices would print out the same whether I print from my phone, pc or "view online" option.

Pros and cons. Lots of available features to use. However, many of the features need some work. Long invoices get cut off when printed, won't print a second page. Lots of little things need refinement. Customer support refuses to answer my emails. Tried to contact 3 times now with no response, checked spam folder but nothing. Scrolling thru reviews on here and its obvious most are fake. Same exact reviews posted by several different users. Most reviews highlight various features, kinda fishy....
