BRADENTON, Fl. (December 2, 2010) – Pace Software, Inc. has upgraded its YES auto repair shop management system (SMS) with Carfax QuickVIN. Users now can retrieve the year/make/model and vehicle identification number (VIN) of their customers’ cars by entering only the license plate information. The new tool is available free with the YES Management System 3.0.
‘Carfax QuickVIN works wonderfully. It is very handy amd saves so much time,’ said Suzie Winterbottom, service writer at Roy’s Automotive in Bradenton, Fla. ‘Using the YES Management System with QuickVIN, I no longer have to go out to write down the vehicle identification number. In addition, the free advertising we get on the Carfax Reports has helped bring in new customers.’
Eight out of ten SMS users would prefer to have Carfax QuickVIN available with their current system, according to a recent independent study. Pace is one of the first providers to include Carfax QuickVIN with their software.
‘We’re always looking for ways to further enhance the value of the YES Management System for our customers,’ said Cheryl Hagman, sales manager at Pace Software, Inc. ‘Carfax QuickVIN is a time saving feature that helps improve speed and efficiency at which repair shops operate, not to mention ordering the right parts the first time. YES users are very happy we made the choice to include Carfax QuickVIN in our management system.’
YES Management System subscribers using Carfax QuickVIN also have their service records turned into free advertising on Carfax Vehicle History Reports. Shop name and contact information appears alongside each service record on the Carfax Report, reaching millions of potential customers that use Carfax.
