ST. GEORGE, Utah. (Oct. 26, 2011) - ProfitBoost Software has upgraded its web-based 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 when creating the repair order. The new tool is available free with ProfitBoost's web-based software.

"ProfitBoost with Carfax QuickVIN is a perfect fit for us," said Rob McMullen, owner of Scotty's Transmission, RPM Automotive and LubePro's in Nevada. "We're operating much more efficiently than before. Everything we need to capture the vehicle's information to make sure we're ordering the correct parts is built right into the software. Our techs can start working on cars sooner, which gets the customer in and out faster."

Eight out of ten SMS users would prefer to have Carfax QuickVIN available with their current system, according to a recent independent study. ProfitBoost is one of the first providers to include Carfax QuickVIN with their software.

"Carfax QuickVIN is one of the most powerful upgrades that ProfitBoost has made in its ten year history," said Scott Johnson, CEO of ProfitBoost. "It gives the shop an extremely fast and efficient way to enter the vehicle information into their ProfitBoost PIFPro system and begin working on a vehicle. All of this at no cost for the QuickVIN feature."

ProfitBoost 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.
