Digital Workshop Calendar

Typical Workshop Agenda

Although AutoVitals Partner workshops are designed to work along a set agenda and proven method, the key element that makes them so effective is the engagement among participants.  So, you will find that the agenda below is more of a guideline. For the first half of the workshop, we will walk through a real life reenactment of a day in the life of the AutoVitals shop in accordance with our Standard Operating Procedures, opening the floor for discussion at all times. The second half of the day will be dedicated to a first hand learning experience with SmartFlow and in parallel the advanced class for advanced SmartFlow users. You and your team will be assigned a workstation with a tablet and computer running SmartFlow, and get a true hands on experience using SmartFlow in a shop from vehicle drop off to vehicle pick up.
