    Does anyone have samples of checklists for work done say by a apprentice or other tradesman that a foreman can use to double check on work done on the vehicle before it goes out to the customer.

    Our “final checks” are embebed in a quicklube module that ROWriter developed back in the day. It was ahead of its time for primarily one reason,

    “You cannot close out an invoice unless your “final Checks”  checklist is completed”.

    This single feature makes it a breeze to get compliance in filling out the inspections and final checks. There is no real learning curve or “remembering” to complete the checklist.

    I continue to be highly disappointed in every other digital inspection platform out there(including Rotouch), for not having this feature embebed in their platform.

    Unfortunately, Rowriter did not provide a easy way for me to share my inspections. In the past I did extract the data from the tables in the database for sharing elsewhere, and I have that attached.

    I believe what you are asking for is a key to providing profitable quality service by minimizing comebacks.  We will continue to enhance our “final checks” and continue to badger inspection platform developers to include the feature described.
