Mobile Dealership Software: 11 Benefits | EverLogic App
The list below will help you determine how your dealership can grow in new ways by going mobile with EverLogic. Since 2003, EverLogic has been the leading dealership software that integrates with QuickBooks. Today, EverLogic is leading the way with innovative mobile solutions.
So, who is the EverLogic Mobile App designed for? Put simply, it’s for any RV, trailer, or automotive dealership with a service department or vehicle sales team that has a desire to increase profits through efficiency.
1. The integrated time clock will keep your service team accountable
Accountability has gotten a bad rap because we often associate it with negative outcomes. However, the truth is that accountability is how effective teams stay effective. And a byproduct of effectiveness in your service department is efficiency. So, at the risk of stating the obvious, more efficiency means more profit for your dealership and a whole host of benefits for your staff and customers.
The EverLogic Mobile App keeps accountability front and center by making it simple for service technicians to start and stop a time clock on specific service jobs in a repair order. Service techs can easily see their hours worked last week, hours worked this week, and last completed repair order with start and end times.
2. Add photos to jobs from mobile devices to save time
Second on our list, service technicians can take a photo with their tablet or smart phone of choice, open the EverLogic Mobile App, and add photos to jobs in two taps. This saves time by eliminating walks across a service department to upload photos to a desktop computer. Any photos taken with the EverLogic Mobile App will automatically appear in the job information in EverLogic Core Desktop for service managers or other users to see.
3. Service techs only see assigned service jobs to minimize confusion
When using the EverLogic Mobile App, service technicians will only see jobs assigned to them. Also, for dealerships with service department managers or service writers who assign jobs, this feature provides them with the confidence they need to keep pressing forward with bringing on new work while their service team stays on task. Additionally, technicians have clarity and confidence while they knock out jobs assigned specifically to them.
4. Technicians can add new jobs with ease instead of walking to a PC
There is rarely a repair order that starts with one job and doesn’t turn into more jobs, at least more legitimate repair needs that customers should be made aware of before a repair order is closed out. So, to accommodate the need to add new jobs to a repair order, the EverLogic Mobile App gives technicians on-the-spot capability to add new jobs to repair orders with problem, cause, and solution fields. This also gives service managers or service writers the info they need within EverLogic Core Desktop to contact customers and get approval for the new job.
5. See available parts and add them to jobs in less than 10 seconds
Next, adding parts to jobs is simple in the EverLogic Mobile App. In just a few taps, technicians can search for parts, see a list of parts that meet broad or specific search criteria, see the total on hand, and add to the job. Within the service job view, techs can see all of the parts they’ve added including part number, description, bin location, quantity, and UPC for easy location of the physical part. Furthermoe, any part added to a job through the mobile app will update the master inventory count across your business, including multiple locations.
6. See accurate service efficiency reports
You can think of the EverLogic Mobile App as a service technician’s technology hub. It’s just about everything that they need to do service jobs and track time. Plus, EverLogic Core Desktop users with the right permission level can view numerous reports to keep your dealership on track. Reports that are directly impacted by the EverLogic Mobile App include:
- Parts Inventory
- Gross Profit from Service
- Aged ROs
- Shop Status
- Labor Count by Location

Also, the EverLogic Mobile App tracks technician time on jobs. This info can be used to generate a technician productivity report in EverLogic Core Desktop.

Similarly, effective sales teams are efficient sales teams. The EverLogic Mobile App gives salespeople the ability to create simple vehicle quotes for customers. Mobile-generated quotes include:
- Customer Name

Additionally, mobile quotes can be sent directly to the customer’s email, all without leaving the sales lot or wasting valuable time.

8. Add new customers in seconds to keep sales conversations going
Next, keeping a record of every lead and customer is vital when it comes to getting more sales closed. Casual prospects, “lookeeloos,” and just about all buyers these days want to get in and out of sales conversations as quickly as possible. That makes capturing important lead information challenging. The EverLogic Mobile App empowers salespeople with a fast, powerful customer input tool that connects directly to your dealership’s primary customer management system in EverLogic Core Desktop. Importantly, salespeople can add:

And if you’re with a prospective buyer in your lot and you can’t tell them how much the vehicle is that they are looking at right then and there, they may get frustrated and leave. The EverLogic Mobile App will keep your prospects happy and give your salespeople the tools they need to close more sales.
