05 Feb 2021

Have you ever struggled to account for missing stock or unexplained expenses? If you are using manual spreadsheets or out of date software, you may be wasting money you could be pocketing.

Here’s how to keep track of your workshop expenses and increase your profit -

Integrate your workshop accounting to your workshop software

Integrated accounting is combining all your Workshop accounting to your Workshop Management software.

Software accounting programs such as Xero and MYOB are the most popular choices for workshop accounting today because they can be accessed remotely at any time Plus, they can easily be linked to your workshop software program.

Integrating Xero or MYOB accounting with your day-to-day tasks such as ordering, servicing and repairs gives your business one centralised location for all your workshop management decisions.

The key benefit of integrated accounting is your workshop avoids costly double bookkeeping and common errors associated with duplicate data entry. This saves you time and money!

Manage your parts inventory in one location

Many workshops find it hard to manage their parts inventory, especially if they do it manually. Maintaining multiple files or systems and allocating each part to a repair job is a time-consuming task that often leads to error.

Using a workshop management software system helps your workshop manage all your parts inventory from one location. Using a workshop management system your workshop will have a completely centralised location for your entire parts inventory management. You will know exactly what you have in stock and what needs to be ordered for specific repair jobs.

Using a workshop software as a central destination for your parts inventory avoids unnecessary expenses that put your workshop in the red when using multiple or paper systems.

Get a workshop software with unlimited users

Your workshop management software should ideally support unlimited users without costing you anything more. Many Workshop Systems charge by user which could often lead to a breakdown. A breakdown in workshop or miscommunication with suppliers could end up becoming far too costly for your workshop.

Getting a Workshop Software with unlimited users gives your entire workshop a centralised location for all information. Your mechanics can all log into one software and know jobs, orders, inventory, schedules, and jobs. Your Workshop can stay on top exactly what every mechanic is doing even if you’ll are not in the same location.

A workshop software with unlimited users removes common miscommunication scenarios that hurt your cashflow.
