Our Shop Talk Blog shares the insider advice needed to increase profits & efficiency. Learn what's working right now for repair shops all across the country.

BOLT ON CEO and founder Mike Risich – in addition to revolutionizing the auto repair industry - is helping to shape the future of engineering technology.

Since 2012, Risich has participated in DeVry University’s Industry Advisory Committee for Computer Information Systems in the College of Engineering and Information Sciences. Risich, who had worked for eight years as a Microsoft developer prior to founding his greater Philadelphia company, met recently with fellow DeVry University committee members.

“I help advise them on what engineering technology programs they should be focused on,” Risich said, adding that he enjoys being involved. “I came from a tech school and I was willing to give back.”

Risich said he sees a great need for software engineering in the automotive industry.

In October 2012, he became a technical advisory board member for Kaplan Career Institute. In this role, Risich serves as a local employer providing feedback on the school’s current and future curriculum.

Risich is a 1997 graduate of the Computer Learning Center.

He founded BOLT ON in 2008 after seeing how out-of-date the industry’s automotive software solutions were. With a goal of helping to automate routine processes in the independent auto repair industry, Risich, along with his team of software developers, has created more than a dozen add-on software modules that fully integrate with leading auto repair shop management systems. The tools help thousands of auto repair shops in the U.S., Canada, Guam and South America increase up-sell and profit-making opportunities; boost overall shop efficiency; dramatically improve accuracy of data entry and so much more.
