The Digital Shop Platform

So Much More Than Digital Inspections

A lot of steps are involved in the cycle of creating a loyal customer out of a web-searching community member. Just how many? Well, thousands! When we set out to build The Digital Shop platform we wanted to base it around how motorists behave and how a shop needs to be equipped to respond to this behavior. We did the research and have broken our findings down again and again. Finally, we have simplified these steps into 7 vital touchpoints between you and your customer to complete this cycle. The 7 touchpoints of motorist engagement is the framework for The Digital Shop platform. All of our products incorporate these touchpoints to some degree.

What Decisions Does a Motorist Make When Servicing or Repairing their Vehicle?


When motorists drop off their vehicle they want to be assured that all concerns are taken care of but are usually also in a rush. If they are confident in the shop and can easily review work separation anxiety will be eliminated. If confidence is instilled Motorists approve additional work stemming from last visits inspections results or from maintenance recommendations.


Motorists are eager to know what is going on with their car, they must decide to opt in to notifications so that they will be given status updates throughout the visit. They will be more open to approVINg additional work that is found, if their questions are answered swiftly and with relevant information.


Once motorists have researched the inspection results, and found the severity of the issue to be justified, they will approve the additional work. If their budget allows and the severity was made transparent by the shop using images and videos of the vehicle’s problem areas motorist are responsive to the shop and feel good about their decision.

Picking up the vehicle is a relief for many motorists. If great service and education was provided that generates a loyal customer. Based on their experience with the shop they will book their next appointment, if offered by SA. Shop lets them know they will get documentation emailed about their visit.

Sending a service reminder, especially if it points to declined work from the last visit will motorists think about making the next appointment.From website through updates your shop itself and emails all material is branded keeping your shop in their mind when they think auto repair.

Tech Findings on The Inspection

If you are serious about your shop's future success then this is a real game changer

This is quite literally a "best thing since sliced bread thing" Just the time savings is well worth the program, than adding in pictures and a way to highlight them for the customer to see it from their smartphone or pc and also the tech being able to instantly pull up history and also have a digital inspection sheet with voice or hand typed notes and check box recommendations. I could go on for another hour but just give this a try/ do a demo and really look hard at it. If you are serious about your shop's future success then this is a real game changer.

Increased our ARO by $267.00

Never any regrets. The website they designed and launched for me brings in more than 80 new customers EVERY month. Smart Flow, the digital inspection system has increased our ARO by $267.00. Responsive to my needs and excellent products.

My shop is light years ahead of all the other shops in the area

It takes a little work to get used to it. After 5 to 6 months of use, I am just getting into the tech efficiency part of it. Bottom line, this program is awesome! My shop is light years ahead of all the other shops in the area. We are small, but profitable, and my customers love the digital inspections. Highly recommended.

Their customer service is second to none

AutoVitals has been absolutely wonderful in meeting our needs. Their customer service is second to none. We worked with AutoVitals for a few years and then made the mistake in 12/14 of changing to another company. In 8 months, our web presence was almost none and our customer count went down. We just switched back and I couldn't be happier.

Interesting side note: When we went from AutoVitals to the new provider, AutoVitals worked with us and made sure the transition was easy and seamless. When we switched from the new provider back to AutoVitals, that other provider knocked our website offline within hours. AutoVItals quickly put up a temporary web page until they can get us back on top with the Top Fuel program. Way to go AutoVitals!!

I highly recommend them

At the beginning of 2017 we upgraded to Top Fuel website and added Smart Flow. The results were incredible. We saw an increase in ARO and customer count from web search customers. Just to put things in prospective 2017 has been better then 2015 and 2016 combined as far as increased business from web search. If you are looking to increase customer count the Auto Vitals system combined with their knowledgeable staff is your answer. I highly recommend them.

Requests from the website have at least doubled

As a shop owner for the last 32 years I can testify that Autovitals has significantly increased our web traffic with the latest generation website. Since the launch of the new site our phone traffic and email requests from the website have at least doubled. They are doing a great job.
