Point of sales system for small repair shop Sign In

Hello,

My father is going to be opening up a small autorepair shop in the East SF Bay area. I have been assigned to take care of all the computer work and IT set-up. I am trying to find a point of sales system that will work well for the shop and runs at a good price. Some features we are looking for are:

-customer information and receipts
-mechanic note taking
-inventory keeping
-estimates

Please let me know if you know of a good software to use or a software that you may have used at a previous workplace. Thank you in advance.

It may depend on which information system you are using. Both Alldata and Mitchell have POS systems that work with their database and will transfer estimates into work orders. I can tell you from experience that Alldata has the best information system but their POS is not real user friendly. Mitchell has a real user friendly POS but their info systems leave a lot to be desired. Both of these systems are leased on a monthly basis and maintained by the respective company.

Hi! I have the same issue. Gonna open auto repair shop in a month. Did you find smth fit for your business? For me systems like Alldata or Mitchell are too complicatedCrazy and expensive. By the way, are they web based or CDrom?
