Current Process

Without Smart Markers, your shop’s process is slowed down due to the manual work that is needed to decide and dispatch the type of inspections that goes out to each vehicle.

Best Practice

Think of the types of appointments that your shop commonly gets (quick lube, brakes, state inspection, etc.) and use these to make your Smart Markers. For example, a quick lube can get a cursory inspection, while a brake check can get a more part specific inspection like a brake inspection. In this way, because it is automated, each vehicle is still getting inspected, and techs and service advisors aren’t wasting time.

Quantified Benefits

Shops will get more inspections done because it’s easier to get them assigned and customers will gain more trust because they are receiving digital inspections.
