Demos and tutorials available in support


Handling 7 different collision repair labor rates (Only this tool currently does this) allows a shop to use different rates for metal work, custom work, restoration work, frame work, basic paint, custom paint etc. It allows specialty shops the ability to accommodate labor rates not normally allowed in data based software. You can accommodate and split service rates inside the same estimate.

Typically restoration, custom or specialty body shops don't need or want a full fledged data based software, they just don't run enough volume to justify the high monthly fee, these body shops are generally owned and operated by experienced body men who are vast knowledge and are not afraid of judgment items.

At this price point and never a monthly fee, it's an extremely cost effective estimating and repair management tool. It's even expandable for someone with spreadsheet experience or for someone who knows someone with spreadsheet experience.

All the screenshots, tutorials and images of any of the versions we offer look similar and function the same, the exception is in the added features, pull down menus and other new items, but the overall use is similar.

View all our versions, choose the price point that fits your budget, we have an upgrade price for previous users, monthly additional support for those who feel they need someone long term, the monthly support plan can also be used for free upgrades for all new versions coming down the pipe.

*This version accommodates tax on labor regulations, tax on materials and parts ...
