Please contact Ajay Thakur for more information on IDS Mobile App.
Take work order payments on your mobile device with the IDS Mobile App and Charge-it-Pro. This is particularly useful for roaming technicians and when the service desk gets busy.
Technicians can clock in/out of jobs and provide cause and correction using their mobile devices. This is also useful for roaming technicians and saves those in the workshop time by not having to walk back-and-forth to the terminal.
We are currently working on adding new functionality to the IDS Mobile App that will specifically benefit the sales representatives at your dealership, and would like to hear your suggestions and ideas. Please provide feedback by contacting our Director of Innovations, Ajay Thakur, at (800) 962-7872 ext. 143 or email@example.com.
Future releases will continue to refine the mobile app, document management, parts management, service efficiency, CRM, and back office functions.
IDS welcomes customer participation and greatly appreciates suggestions and feedback. Please contact Product Management at (800) 962-7872 x185 to submit an enhancement request.
