Many people like to stay comfortable. They despise change and will do much to avoid it. We have all heard business owners or staff say phrases like this, “We have always done it this way” even if their ways are not productive enough. Are you this way?

I understand that people do not like change, because yes, it can be challenging and it does not always feel comfortable. But, what if change is for the better? What if change can improve your business and make your shop more organized and more manageable? The growing pains might be worth it, right?

Let’s take a look at what shopVOX custom shop management can do for your business:

  1. Iestimating2nstead of writing out quotes manually, you can create a professional looking quote sheet for your customers. This quotes can then be easily emailed to your customer and then when approved easily converted into a work order.
