Now CarVue helps garages to manage their stocks too

CarVue, the cloud-based garage management system which helps garages save money and grow sales, has been enhanced with new stock management capability.

CarVue already enabled garage staff to setup ‘products’ which could then be sold to customers, simply  by picking them to be added to quotations and invoices.

Now this popular functionality has been enhanced so that products can be marked as stock items, allowing a stock level to be inputted too. This stock level then simply reduces as the item is sold. The existing product capability already handled unit, cost and selling price data.

“Almost all garages keep stocks, the most important often being engine oil,” said Rob Skidmore, CarVue’s Product Director. “But this can be used for any other consumables, or even hard parts where larger garages choose to hold popular items.”

CarVue say this latest development was one of the most frequently asked for improvements and claim delivering it illustrates their user-community orientated approach to system development.

Because CarVue is cloud-based, all users can immediately use the new stock functionality without needing to upgrade their subscriptions, or run any software updates.

Instead CarVue helps garage managers to operate their businesses anytime and from anywhere, requiring nothing more than a PC, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection.

“The stock management capability creates history records too so that it’s easier to understand how valuable stocks like engine oils are really being used within the business,” added Rob.

CarVue say independent garages moving to their online garage management system can be set-up and working in just a few minutes. They can then benefit from a suite of tools designed to save time, save money and boost sales, as little or as often as they wish.
