Shop Manager App is a new software platform designed for automotive service shops to help run every aspect of business with ease. Created specifically for automotive businesses, it helps manage estimates, invoices, inventory, employees, and it even integrates with QuickBooks.

Shop Manager App frees up many hours each week for shop owners and managers, by streamlining day-to-day processes. The software is available on a monthly subscription basis and comes in three tiers to match the needs of small or large businesses.

Shop Manager App is feature-rich and includes the ability to schedule customers; create and track production schedules; create estimates and invoices; manage inventory; track employee time and projects; and it even seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks Pro, Premier and Enterprise. It handles one or multiple locations and comes with a mobile app version for employees to track projects for more efficient operations.

The creators of Shop Manager App, the latest software platform from Venture Apps, evaluated existing solutions and found current software either lacking in features, or needlessly complex. They created a simple front end and tested it inside automotive installation businesses, with multiple locations and dozens of employees, for a year before releasing it now to the automotive industry.

"Shop Manager App is a significant step forward, helping owners run their businesses without purchasing expensive software or having to invest hours in training," said Scot Schroeder of Venture Apps. "We wanted to create a solution for shop owners with a high level of sophistication found in expensive software platforms, but with an intuitive and logical front end. And to ensure shop owners can get the most out of the platform, we provide the technical support to get up and running right away."

Shop Manager App is available starting at just $199 per month, with a free one-month trial to qualified businesses.
