Digital Vehicle Inspections, Two-Way Text Messaging and Self-Scheduling Capabilities Are Integrated Seamlessly, With No Additional Hardware
PHILADELPHIA, July 26, 2021—BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY, a leading supplier of technology solutions for the automotive aftermarket, has teamed with Tekmetric, another tech titan in the market, to bring its signature Digital Vehicle Inspections, text-payment and other valuable customer engagement tools to shops already using Tekmetric’s vibrant shop management platform.
As a result of this collaboration, more shop owners can benefit from BOLT ON’s Cloud-based NextGear product, which also enables self-scheduling, workflow management and reporting on any Web-enabled mobile device. Shops that are currently using Tekmetric can take advantage of these capabilities with no long-term contract, no additional hardware, and no steep learning curve.
“Tekmetric is a stalwart of the auto aftermarket, and its customers rightly love using it to manage just about all aspects of their shop operations.
