Parts on repair orders exist in one of three states:
1. Not on premises, not on the way
2. On the way
3. On premises
Stocked parts (kept in inventory) exist in one of three states:
1. Below stock, not on the way
2. On the way
3. Stocked at proper level
Shop-Ware tracks each of these states automatically, for every single part, on every single repair order, so you don't have to. Each state is color-coded in the UI and easily batched to take action, making sense out of the complex.
“Parts management is pretty awesome, I know if I have a part in stock for the next few days appointments and when I need to make a stock order all I do is make a couple of clicks and BAM I am done. This tool is saving time, we are able to get more done.”
The Parts GP Optimizer is an industry-first tool designed to automatically seek and attain your parts gross profit. It employs powerful software tools to replace the manually-configured "parts matrix" approach to parts profitability.
The Optimizer is made possible by cloud-based computing, unbound by local server capacity, to collect and review an unlimited amount of inventory and sales data, no matter the size of your business. With advanced statistics and machine-learning principles, it creates a custom, "optimized", parts markup curve based on your shop's actual parts sales and then flexes the curve automatically as your parts sales mix naturally changes.
You tell the Optimizer your desired parts GP % and it sets your pricing to hit the target. Without any extra effort on your part, it adjusts its aim to maintain accuracy and deliver your profit goal.
