Workshop

As a duty of care to all of your customers, ensure that a health check is completed on every vehicle that enters your workshop, highlighting any concerns clearly and concisely supported by photographs and videos with Augmented Concerns.

Videos & Photographs

Videos and photographs help build trust with customers and our fully integrated products allow service advisors to record pre-inspection walkarounds and technicians to take a video while performing the health check.

Video Rating

A rating can be requested from the customer asking them to score the video they have just watched. This allows you review each technicians scores and identify if there are areas for improvement.

Online Check In

Similar to Airline-style Online Check In, customers can be invited via email and/or SMS to check-in online for their appointment a day or two before, helping to promote best practice and upsell revenues. The check-in facility also includes the work they are booked in for, the option to book an AutoPoint Locker and also remind customers to bring important documents with the ability to digitally sign at the end of the process.

Previous VHC Concerns

Any unsold work from a previous vehicle health check, together with any related videos and photographs, is presented to the customer during Online Check In allowing them to simply choose any work they would like carried out to their booking.

Sending online check in invitations a couple of days before the visit also allows parts departments to order any items which are not in stock or available on same day delivery to avoid disappointing customers on the day of their visit.

Additional Work

Customers can add additional work not part of the booking either by leaving a note during the check in process or selecting from a range of products and accessories.

Message Board

Customers can digitally interact with service advisors by leaving a message during an online check in and sending and receiving messages directly from the customer web page with an internal message board highlighting all ongoing chats.

Service Plan

During a customer online check in, if the customer does not currently have a service plan a step can now be introduced automatically to ask if they are interested in one. This then allows the service advisor to contact the customer to find out their requirements in preparation for their visit.
