Techs in the field have full access to all calls and service histories as well as part lookup and inventory availability system wide. The thought of working in this business without such tools is hard for me to grasp because I know service makes it's money in the 3rd through 5th decimal place and trusting math that tight to index cards makes no sense to me.
    Remote Tech is nice, but on mine I can only look at machine history if there is an open call in my log for said machine
    I can't search a tag number or customer, which would come in handy when I am trying to remember a part number or fix i did in the past

    and also, our techs dont get access to e-auto which would be awesome

Multiple machine at 1 account are identified by location, model, and the last 3 digits of the serial number.
    I like the idea of storing to eFiling a blank service maintenance report. When a service call is complete, print, write in the details and scan to email back to the office's service email account. Somewhat low tech but free, easy to do and better than nothing for dealers with less than 100 copiers in their fleet.

    This post got me to thinking and researching.

    Has anyone used:

    PC Repair Tracker - PHP/MySQL Computer Repair Shop Tracking Software


    I'm looking into it now, and it really looks like a good deal. I'll report back what I find.
