  • Calling All Shops and Techs! Free Trial, Guaranteed to Save Time

    Posted by Tom on September 20, 2022 at 2:00 pm

    Exclusive for Automotive Management Network Users Automotive Management Network Community

    For the last month, my shop has been using a product called “Ortho,” a voice assistant purpose-built for technicians to save time on repair data lookup. We’ve already seen measurable time saved. The Ortho team is currently beta-testing with a half dozen independent mechanical shops and is looking to recruit more technicians who are interested in trying the product (FREE OF CHARGE) and providing feedback on their experience over a month-long period. DETAILS FROM THE ORTHO TEAM: What is Ortho?

    Ortho is working to be the fastest, most convenient way to access trusted repair and maintenance data on a tablet you can use hands-free. Just say “Hey Ortho,” ask your question, and Ortho’s voice AI engine does the rest. From brake jobs to engine maintenance to HVAC fixes and more, Ortho gives you just the data you need, right in the bay. Ortho responds reliably to spoken language and actually understands the terms of the trade (“how much fluid goes in the tranny?“). Technicians using the product have already relayed saving 5-10 minutes per job using the product! Here’s how the trial program works:

    We are looking for one or two techs per shop to use Ortho during the workday

    We’ll create an account for your shop and ship out your device

    Once received, we’ll schedule a short onboarding call to set you up

    Tech(s) use Ortho throughout the day whenever the need for a spec arises during basic maintenance services

    We currently support a variety of frequent lookups (e.g., engine coolant capacity, brake rotor discard thickness, transmission fluid type, mounting point diagrams, and much more). We’ll provide our Frequent and Full Lookup Guide to give you a sense of what’s possible using Ortho (130+ common data points per vehicle).

    Here’s what you receive as part of this early access program:

    $100 gift card to you for the first 100 Ortho searches made and participation in two (2) 20-minute live feedback sessions FREE Ortho device for your shop(s)

    An Android tablet with a charging stand and several optional accessories (wearable mic, loudspeaker for hearing responses when away from device)

    30-days of FREE access

    Product feature and roadmap influence, priority support

    To get things started, just reply to this post or contact with the name and location of your shop and we’ll follow up with the next steps.
