Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference

Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference

Shop Owners, Managers, Services Advisors and Customer Service Reps from across the country now have the chance to meet with BOLT ON's experts at the 2018 Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference from September 20-22, in Chicago.

You'll learn "How To WOW Your Customers" and rise above the competition by simply integrating the same mobile technology you use everyday. 

Doctors, dentists, and even hairdressers have already transformed how they communicate and build trust with customers, so why does the auto repair industry have to lag behind? Join our very own Business Relationship Specialist, Frank Dragoni as he leads a Roundtable discussion teaching shops How to WOW Customers by:

  • Communicating via text message—the preferred method of consumers for quicker responses.
  • Viewing digital inspections on their smartphone. Let them see the “why” of service and repair with video and pictures.
  • Building a complete service history that includes videos and photos showing the vehicle’s repair and maintenance lifecycle.
  • Automatically setting the next appointment in their smartphone calendar, sending a reminder text one week before the work is due, and allowing them to confirm the appointment easily.

Here’s Where to Find Us:
