More About The AutoVitals Team
Software as a Service
The first Digital inspection program was developed by AutoVitals. We continue to lead the industry in software to help Auto Repair shop owners better manage their business.
Sure, we were the first in the industry to release digital inspections but we never stop developing our products. We have integrated products to create a platform that works cohesively so our shops benefit from a one vendor solution.
Shop Owner Made
Our products are constantly being developed and updated based off of customer feedback. On our facebook group customers work in real time with CEO to build the next release based on their needs. We also employ current and former shop owners in our training and advising teams.
We love our customers and our mission is to support and better understand their goals and needs. Every member of our staff is trained in customer support and we expect every person with a phone on their desk to understand how a shop works and use their technical skills to support our customers.
