Coordinating your auto shop with Workflow

The AutoSoftWay workflow platform is an interactive tool that helps you coordinate your clients' requests with your repair team. You can drag-and-drop requests from different phases of the service cycle!

First ensure that you have created an estimate and registered your employee information on AutoSoftWay.

Starting from the dashboard, navigate to sidebar menu, and click on the 'Workflow' tab. AutoSoftWay platform: navigate to workflow tab

Newly made estimates and orders will appear under the estimates column.

The left side of the workflow table will display the name of the mechanic who these jobs are assigned to. AutoSoftWay platform: workflow displaying assigned jobs to mechanics
