Digital Shop – AutoVitals

The Richmond Meineke’s long term goal is to have a total Digital Shop. These platforms are typically an integrated tool set that will boost productivity of technicians and service writers, and improve the overall customer experience. Some of the key components of the digital shop are digital inspection, digital work flow management, service advisor command station, automated status updates, automatic status updates to the customers as their vehicles move through the work flow steps and educational videos. Communications are also automatically sent to customers to remind them of upcoming vehicle service intervals and appointments.

As the first step into the digital shop world the Richmond Meineke has implemented a very simplistic version of AutoVitals. This  version is customer facing with the emphasis on digital inspections, customer feedback, customer education  and preventative maintenance schedule updates and notifications.

*As we become more versed in the technology and the technology proves to provide customers with the desired communications, education and convenience, additional operational steps will be introduced into the digital platfrom.

Brought my 2007 Trailblazer in for a loud exhaust leak and they did a wonderful job. Guys, this is a new owner and a whole new revamped business, the new owner is very friendly and courteous and his shop has totally changed for the good so don’t hesitate to give Richmond KY’s Meineke another try, and I think you will be glad you did 🙂
