Garage Management System, TechMan has launched a new website. The company says the new site represents its growing list of features developed to improve day-to-day tasks in a busy garage environment. The firm has invested in new head office premises and additional staff appointments in addition to the ongoing development of the Garage Management System. In the past 18 months, more garages have been using Techman’s software to enable increased digitalisation of their businesses, prompted by pandemic operating conditions.
TechMan is advising its customers that it will be continuing to provide services and support for its garage management system whilst these unprecedented restrictions are in place. Individual garages are evaluating their own position and capabilities during this time in order to understand the best next steps for their businesses and how they can operate whilst adhering to the new social distancing instructions advised by government.
TechMan, the garage management specialist, now offers card services provider integration, linking PDQ card terminals with its software. After meeting with a national fast fit network, TechMan said it discovered significant sums of money were being written off by garages each year in miss-keyed or malicious transactions using PDQ terminals. In response, TechMan developed a solution it says is flexible enough to work for both single branch independents and national chains.

TechMan, the garage management system built by an independent garage, acknowledges that streamlining customer reminder processes may not be the most exciting job for most garages but they argue it can be one of the most profitable.
