Great product

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We are producing accurate, easy to understand invoices with very little effort. Customer communication has improved with our ability to send canned text messaging quickly and easily.

Vorteile:

How many companies that sell shop management software listen to the end user? Of the few that listen how many entertain the thought of implementing a change based on a comment from the end user? Over the years this company has always been receptive in hearing and reviewing my suggestions, following up with required dialogue and in many cases implementing a change accordingly. We are all in this together and they understand that we, the end user of their product, may see or envision a change that could be an improvement. Their open minded, approachable business model has always impressed me. Their support staff is excellent and responsive to all of my needs. A recently released cloud version includes small changes that overall make it better than the old version. The texting feature found on both versions is great way to improve customer communication and efficiency with very little effort. Direct interfaces with our suppliers eliminates unproductive phone orders and price/part number entry mistakes.

Nachteile:

The interface with tire suppliers is not as efficient as the interface with parts stores. Is this the fault of the program or the tire supplier? Unknown.

Kommentare: I like the all in one value. I can track history, payment, statements, inventory, etc all on the same program.

Vorteile:

We have used Bay-masteR for over 20 years. Just recently (6-8 months) converted to their clowud based system. Pros= Easy back up. More features. Techs can access and work in the work order. I have access to the work orders off site.

Nachteile:

Cons- seems to be a bit slower, especially when printing. Takes several seconds before the printer starts printing. Has had several glitches that I have had to call tech support about. Some they have been able to take care of right then and others we are still waiting to get corrected. Tech support is always too busy to take your call so you will have to leave a message and hope they call back quickly. They have left me stranded a couple of times, but overall they respond in a timely manor.

Just ok

2,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I would not sign up for baymaster to use it if I was starting over today. The whole system goes down every few months, which doesn't sound like a huge deal but it is. I don't know a single shop who has their system go down at all ever. It is just not a very reliable program.

Vorteile:

It works as it should sometimes. But it has enough issues to make it frustrating.

Nachteile:

While the online version is faster and more stable than the old cloud version, it still has issues. We are constantly locked out of tickets. Official built us an option to force tickets to unlock, and even that still will not work at times and we won't be able to get into a ticket from any computer. Not even the one that the system says is in it. The system often goes down during the day when we are busy and it completely handicaps us. The new vehicle selection menu is terrible compared to the old full screen version, it's bad enough we don't even use it when booking appointments any more. Customer information should be automatically capitalized. It would be good if quotes would carry forward to a customers new invoice even if the EOD report hasn't been done on their old one. Sometimes customers pick up their vehicle and call back later that day to book in for the work to be done. Then the quote you made is still on the old paid invoice and you can't get it to show up on the new one and you have to build it all over again. The printing is a pain. Every few weeks a random computer will stop printing baymaster tickets and we have to get support to fix the printing issue.

If you are on the online cloud version and do not have internet, you may lose connection to the server. That being said you could still use the program on a tablet or smartphone with internet, or with the use of a hotspot. Alternatively we do offer a local version of the program that does not require the internet.

Great management software.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Great customer service & tech support. I like using the software. Would recommend.

Vorteile:

I demoed Bay-master along with several other software brands. I Chose Bay-master. Bay-master is one of the easiest & quickest software programs I have used to write & complete a ticket. I like that it keeps parts & labor for each job on ticket in groups separating each group on the ticket. Some programs I have tried places the parts & labor all run together so you don't know what part goes with what labor. Making it confusing. Having separate jobs makes it so that I can make several jobs or estimates on a ticket. Then while on the phone with the customer and trying to sell multiple repairs I can select or deselect each job giving the customer different options and pricing. The software automatically updates pricing as selecting & deselecting work. Making getting approval for work easy. Also the repairs that the customer does not approve are saved as quotes & will load onto the new ticket the next time customer returns. I love the texting feature. It helps a lot. I like the inventory feature also. I use the program to order my parts through NAPA prolink.

Nachteile:

I think the time clock feature could be a little better, But it works ok.

Great Automotive Billing Program

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Excellent customer service! when our shop had a computer crash the tech support had us totally restored with in hrs. one of my favorite features is the history I can pull up any work order in seconds, it make it so easy to answer mechanics questions and customer questions. I think this soft ware is great it makes every part of my job easier.

Vorteile:

I like the features such as accounting, customer and vehicle history, inventory and marketing. We have used Bay-Master since 1997. I appreciate all the features and would recommend it to any automotive repair shop it its invaluable for keeping track of everything.

Nachteile:

Some of the features have add on costs which used to be included in base price

Note inprovement

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I have learned on the fly so I'm sure that there is more in to this program that I am not aware of and could be using to make it work more efficiently. Training needs to be improved.Training need to be improved. The training videos don't seem to be the same as what we use since I just get the basic plan. Make appointment for personal training would be helpful.
Overall it is a great program for the price.

Vorteile:

License plate recognition of VIN. Carfax I personally use the "Notes" area to keep track of what work was preformed on a certain vehicle: such as date, mileage what work was preformed, fluid amounts and type of oil and filter used. It is easier than using the "History" Would like to see the program do this for me.

Nachteile:

There seems to be a lot of field to fill in each time. Like "Repeat Customer" shouldn't do this automatic if it has been checked before. I shouldn't have to fill that in each time. When typing in the "Customer Request" this should show up in the "notes" area too. Instead I copy and past it there. Training need to be improved. The training videos don't seem to be the same as what we use since I just get the basic plan. Make appointment for personal training would be helpful.

pros cons

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: 1 Accurate computation. 2. clarity of a printed R.O.. 3. Sales tax. canned jobs are not easy to make.

Vorteile:

At the price it is the best value of any program out there. customer support is second to none.

Nachteile:

1. Using the mouse is a waste of valuable time. 2 Entries should be able to be made with other keys alt p parts, alt l labor etc. canned jobs need to be able to be added while in a work order. 3. Archives do not go back far enough. 4. Bay Master has been around long enough that it should incorporate payroll, including draws and payroll taxes. Emulating a DOS based program would bring stability, it makes odd errors like switching customers and dates. Using the cloud will be a disaster identity theft, theft of intellectual property and not being able to access the program when the internet crashes will be some of the problems.

Baymaster is great.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: My experience has been one of the best investments in our business after over 30 years. We have used Baymaster for over 15 years and have never looked back. I have looked at other programs but have never found one that is as easy to use and as powerful. And all are more costly.

Vorteile:

Very easy to use. Very powerful. Choose what features you need. Customer support is awesome. I really like the web based program.

Nachteile:

I really have not found anything. The few things in the past were updated after inquiring to customer service.

Vorteile:

We love the way we can easily look back on work history and previous repairs done to a vehicle. Program is pretty easy to use.

Nachteile:

I wish there was a little simpler way to add repeat messages on invoices. Like "Retorque wheels after 100 miles."

The best

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

The ease of uses of the software surpasses most other shop management software that I have looked at. There are features that Bay-Master has that other very expensive shop management software says that they are the only ones who have such as a liner parts matrix and labor matrix.

Nachteile:

Because they are smaller some other peripheral software do not work with.
