Does the time clock system your technicians use tell you everything there is to know about your auto repair shop’s efficiency?
At Shopmonkey, we believe that time clocks should tell you more than just how much your technicians are owed on payday. Of course, tracking hours for payroll is important, but what if you could do that while better understanding exactly where your team’s time is being spent?
A Dynamic Way to Track Your Team’s Hours
Clocking Into a Work Order
With Shopmonkey, you can have more than one technician clock into a specific work order. This helps you to understand precisely how much time was spent on that specific job, by that specific tech. If someone’s not maximizing their time, you’ll be the first to know.
Clocking Into a Service Within a Work Order
You can have your techs clock into specific services on a work order such as ‘Spark Plugs,’ ‘Cabin Air Filter,’ etc. You can even have multiple technicians clock into the different services on a single work order. With this feature, you'll be able to see the exact amount of time each tech spent on various services. It’s easy, transparent, and encourages your team to work to their full potential.
Learning From the Data: Labor Cost Ratios & Efficiency Ratings
When you have your technicians clock into specific work orders or services, you can learn a few things about your repair shop as a whole:
- Your shop’s labor cost ratios
- Your shop’s efficiency ratings
You can also view summaries by technician:
- Hours tracked per job
- Hours on services/order
- Total hours tracked
- Total labor cost
- Total hours billed
- Overall efficiency rating
With Shopmonkey’s innovative time clock feature, you can easily keep track of your shop’s specific metrics while keeping an eye on your bottom line. What are the most efficient jobs that are making you the most money? Which techs perform which services the fastest? Could you provide more training to help grow your techs’ skill sets? Are you tracking hours per R.O.? Is it an easily-solvable equipment issue? Do techs have some sort of incentive program keeping them motivated to work quickly yet efficiently?
With Shopmonkey time clocks, you’ll have all of the information needed to answer these vital questions and make the changes that take your shop to the next level.
