Shift Your Shop into NextGear

For the first time, automotive service professionals without a compatible shop management system, or no system at all, can tap into our digital vehicle inspection, two-way texting, and advanced appointment setting tools with just a cell phone or tablet with internet access.

NextGear runs on most major PC, iOS and Android devices with little setup or consultation, so there’s no need for new hardware. Start with the Ignition Pack (with no contract or annual subscription fee) then add on new "Gear" modules for new features as they become available.

Experience the shift for yourself.
