    We’d be thrilled to let you test-drive  I work as a trainer with that system and would happily assist.

    Let me know if there are any questions you have and I’d be happy to answer them.

    Autovitals, it is more than just inspections – CRM and Workflow management – all working together.

    We are using Autotextme and It works great for our purposes. The reason we went with them is that we are using an antiquated shop management system that does not interface with any of the DVI systems and Autotextme will work as a stand alone system along side of our management system. I recently saw the Bolt on system and it appears to me that the two systems I am familiar with work almost identically. Autotextme will integrate with most of the popular management systems. Our shop management system works fine and has zero cost so I am not inclined to change for now. If anyone is having a hard time finding a stand alone DVI system, Autotextme might be worth looking into.

    Each of out techs has a tablet on their tool box that they use for the DVI system. Our service writers can use their desktop PC’s. It all connects through wifi/bluetooth. I don’t know how I could say which of the many systems is best unless I used them all for a while and all I really have good knowledge  of is Autotextme.
