Over the years, we've been in many truck and bus repair shops across North America, and most of them could use a bit of scrubbing. In fact, many were a mess. If your shop is looking and feeling dilapidated, it may be a good time to start using your new Fleetsoft software. But, you want to get started right away... and it looks as though there's quite a bit of front-end work. Where to Start?
It just makes good sense to get your parts storage area cleaned up and organized. Think about cleaning the old shelving units and removing any labels or location identifiers. Those labels are probably going to change anyway. Think about getting the deck scrubbed and painted. Think about installing new, brighter lights. Think about moving out all of that old stuff that inevitably accumulates over time that everyone keeps tripping over. Think about getting a shop vacuum out there and cleaning all of the accumulated dust and grime off the stuff that's been sitting on your shelves for too long...perhaps years.
You get the idea; you're starting a new chapter. You're sending a message that you're going pay attention to how the shop is managed and how it looks to your employees and your visitors. You're creating pride in your employees about their workplace and the work they do. You're creating a new beginning. You're bringing in some 21st century hardware and software, and you're creating an appropriate home for it. And who knows? If you get enough of your folks feeling proud about where they work and what they do, maybe your shop productivity will reflect those feelings. It couldn't hurt.
Now where to begin? FleetSoft provides you with step by step instructions, formula trend reordering details, and other information to get you started in the right direction.
