MILWAUKEE, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Service shops using Workshop Software now have integrated access to customer vehicle details from Carfax.

"We heard loud and clear that building access to Carfax information into our latest products was a must-have for our users," said James Mitchell, CEO of Workshop Software said. "With ease, service technicians can identify key vehicle details that help them process vehicles quicker and see the service and repair history of new and return customers to make better recommendations. We expect this enhancement to our platform will help shops boost their customer service and ultimately, service revenues."

Workshop Software users that register customers with myCarfax are automatically stored as the customer's favorite shop. Drivers get alerts when it's time to return for their next service visit to help increase loyalty and retention. In addition, more than 750,000 customer reviews of myCarfax Service Shops help drive new business to those participating stores.

"Workshop Software is changing the way auto repair shops run their business and interact with clients," said Mark Davis, Director & GM, Software Products of ARI Network Services Inc. "We are excited to bring this technology to the U.S. market and to provide an easy-to-learn, easy-to-use solution for collectively overseeing all aspects of business management.  And now with the Carfax QuickVIN and Carfax Service History Check integration, this great partnership brings even more value and potential profit to all of our customers."

"Carfax and our partners like Workshop Software are equally committed to helping people keep their cars well-maintained," said Vern Poyner, general manager at Carfax. "Regular service details on myCarfax and Carfax Vehicle History Reports help reinforce that these vehicles may be safer, last longer and hold their value better."
