AutoWatch Offers Repair Status Updates through Shop's Web Site
AutoWatch (www.autowatch.com) - Day in and day out, collision repair professionals get asked: "When will my car be ready? What is the status of my car? Can I see the progress of my car?" With the AutoWatch system you'll be able to communicate with your customers in a way they never thought possible. As a customer service and marketing tool for collision repair professionals, AutoWatch allows vehicle owners and insurance partners to view digital photos of their vehicle throughout the repair process through your shop's Web site. The latest vehicle repair status is displayed, along with the estimated delivery date and convenient e-mail links to the assigned service adviser. ASA members can start seeing a savings from $200 to $455 if they sign up with AutoWatch.
Offer Your Employees Credit Union Benefits
ASA Federal Credit Union (www.asafcu.org) - Want to attract quality employees to your shop? Offer them benefits they can't refuse and one that doesn't cost you a dime. ASA's Federal Credit Union is available to ASA member shops and their employees. Through enrollment in the credit union, shops can enjoy a multitude of benefits, including direct deposit, loans, benefits and checking and savings accounts.
Benefit Provider of the Month
"Everyone at Automotive Service Leaders, provider of the Auto Shop LifeLine benefit, would just like to extend a thank you to ASA members for the opportunity to support their businesses. Simply put: together, ASA and Auto Shop LifeLine have been a winning ticket for ASA member businesses and we hope to continue that trend."
– Gary Gunn, AAM, chief executive officer, Automotive Service Leaders
