IDS ServiceCRM has been great, especially the task reminder feature. Service Writers can create a task for pretty much anything with our customers, and they can put a date on it, so the task gets automatically added to their work feed on that day. That way, they can see everything they need to do when checking in a particular unit, like calling a customer or giving them some feedback.
IDS Service Mobile has been a great tool for us as we strive to provide greater service to our customers. The technicians use it as their primary desktop, which gives them access to the advisor’s photos and limits the back and forth from workstations to input information. This has led to an increase in efficiency as well as clearer communication of concerns and repairs.

IDS Service Mobile has been a great tool for us as we strive to provide greater service to our customers. Our advisor team utilizes the app to check in our customers, document their concerns, and attach photos to the repair order. The technicians use it as their primary desktop which gives them access to the advisor’s photos while working on the coach, and limits the back and forth from workstations to input information. This has led to an increase in efficiency as well as clearer communication of concerns and repairs. Our warranty team then uses the technician supplied photos from the repair order and sends them to vendors during the claims process. Partner all that with IDS commitment to continued development and their utilizing of dealership feedback for improvement and you have a recipe for success.”

I think the biggest thing the reports have provided for us is a conversation starter. They provide us with a basis for discussing RECT at our monthly admin meetings. It has gotten staff to begin thinking on this topic at a higher level, and hopefully, it will result in us providing our customers with a better experience.”
