Beattie Auto Body Repairs Ltd

I have found Auto-Quote to be an excellent system. Makes dealing with insurance companies easy from the initial estimate through to invoicing. The advanced technology of photo imaging has helped us ensure we are getting the maximum profitability per job (including all supplement work). Auto Quote ensures accurate reporting of profitably and efficiency of each individual job on a daily basis. This system also enables us to accurately measure each employees efficiency. I would highly recommend this system to anyone.

We have had Auto-Quote now for 16 yrs and it is and has been the single most important tool to help manage our business bar none.

Auto-Quote would easily be the most valuable item in terms of return on investment bought in our Panel & Paint shop in the last ten years. It is continually updated and is a dedicated Repair & Refinish software program, with the backup and service to match.

Dave Wiseman 

Tustins Ltd 

I have been an Auto-Quote user since 1994. I couldn't imagine running a panel and paInt business without  Auto-Quote. It gives me a real time position of my business. Debtor and creditors balances are available at a press off the key. Work in and cars out are easy to manage along with work in progress.

I share the running of my business with a manager. With insurance communication and parts purchasing Auto-Quote has facilities that notes when estimates are sent to insurance companies and when parts ordered. This makes for smooth transfer of information between us. Notes can be made for any communication on any job within the system.

 In the years of operating Auto-Quote there has never been a task that I have asked of it that it has not been able to fulfill. On the limited times that I have needed support the service it has been immediate. It is my opinion that Autoquote is a well thought out and stable management system

Way back in the early eighties we purchased the first Auto-Quote  Estimating & Management system in New Zealand and to this day I still consider it to be our most profitable investment ever. I learnt early on the importance of presenting a clear & detailed estimate to an assessor followed by a Job sheet with the same detail for the repair & paint team.

Peter Jones

Precision Panelwork Ltd

I would like to say as being one of the first users worldwide of Auto-Quote Windows, that this Body Shop Management system would have to be the number one investment for any Bodyshop. I could not imagine running my business without it. From the ease of entering estimates, comprehensive reporting, and excellent digital imaging module, I know where my business is at the press of a button. I highly recommend Auto-Quote to manage your business successfully.

We have been operating Auto-Quote since 1989. It has helped us greatly with the day to day running of our business. It is very easy to use and the support network is great.

If you went to school to eat your lunch, like I did, then the requirements of managing a modern collision repair shop are challenging and pedantic to say the least. This was really brought home to me as a result of having to take several months off work to recover from an operation. During that time I lost the level of control I had on my business and consequently a substantial amount of money. I realised I needed to get more control and accountability built into the business. While still in rehab I took advice from several assessors and leading repair shops who all advised me to contact Auto-Quote NZ.

The effect of implementing Auto-Quote was immediate. Using it as the framework to gather my shop's information it gave me the control and accountability that I needed to turn the losses into profits. I found it easier to deal with customers and work providers using the clear and precise estimates Auto-Quote generates, backed up with photos which can be illustrated and labelled as necessary. There was also instant information recall for auditing jobs and making adjustments to the business.

I must admit that at first sight the program seemed daunting, but with his calm and clear instruction, Mike Jepson soon had us doing the basics with ease and looking for more. Now, after using it for three years, I simply can't imagine how I could run my business without Auto-Quote.

Mark Jones Panel & Paint Ltd

We have had Auto-Quote in our shop since 1998. After discussing this with the leading body shops in the country and looking at what else was available, we chose Auto-Quote because of the training, backup and the information we can easily get about our business. We would recommend Auto-Quote to anyone.

Harrow Motor Body Works Ltd

We switched to Auto-Quote in 2004 after trying other computer programmes for the previous 15 years. Nothing else came close to what Auto-Quote can deliver. Recently we have put the timeclock in the workshop for the staff and it has really helped with effiencies on the shop floor with the guys instantly knowing whats on the job and how their time is going.  

Mike is always there to help on the few occasions when we have needed him. My only regret is that we didn't change sooner. 

Steven De Graaf

Rowsells Collision Repair Centre Ltd

We have enjoyed using Auto-Quote for 16 yrs. We find it user friendly, and an absolute must for quoting, invoicing, debtors, creditors, work in /out and what is in progress etc.

The digital imaging part of the programme is easy to use and has become an important part especially when submitting extras and progress photos for the insurance companies.  Auto-Quote has many valuable reports attached and they are continually looking at ways to improve the programme.  

We have also found the text messaging from auto-quote to clients a useful tool.

Whenever, we have a problem (and that is not often) Mike has always been prompt in helping us out.

I have been in this industry along time . What I have learnt over this period is not to be too frugal when it comes to software programmes as it costs you so much more in the long run .(I have learnt this lesson from trying the cheap option in my early days) More important, is the capability and integrity of the software provider . It is all very well to have the best equipment , although if you cannot drive it, it means nothing ! This is where Mike Jepson sets the standard . He knows his product and new technology like no other and always sorts out any issues I have by himself easily and quickly. It blows me away what he can do. I find Mike easy to work with and you know your information will always remain confidential and he has a good sense of humour, when you get to know him. I would definitely recommend Auto Quote with Mike Jepson at the helm .
