Integrated Chat

Instant Message the Team, Individual or Group

SocketTime gives your entire team a better, faster way to communicate. Have you calculated the time cost of unnecessary in-person visits for estimates or additional information? Sure, it might be a two-minute walk to the parts department or the service drive, but it adds up. An average, mid-sized shop with 15 technicians, each working on between 8 and 10 cars per day results in approximately 16 HOURS of lost productivity PER DAY! Keep missing out on nearly $500,000 in lost production every year... or keep your team on task with SocketTime's Integrated Chat.

Multi-Point Inspection

Keep your team on the same page with realtime MPI's

Take control of your service department with SocketTime MPIs. It's been created to make the customer experience smooth and intuitive while streamlining the technician's process. It allows the tech to communicate easily with the service advisors, dispatch, and the parts department for accurate costs and time estimates. The customer is in control once they open their Inspection report, and added services update in real time to update scheduling and recalculate completion times, alerting dispatch which jobs have been displaced. Encourage the upsell without wreaking havoc on your shop's capacity.

Ever Think Your Scheduler Could Do This?

Reduce the software fragmentation.

SocketTime flows seamlessly between departments because it's built with customers, managers, service advisors, and parts advisors at the front of mind. Every feature and function of the cloud-based software is driven by the needs of the dealers who use it every day. It's completely customizable, and all of the features and operations can be adjusted by dealer group, individual rooftop, department, or individual permissions. SocketTime doesn't dictate how you run your shop -- you do. Our team will be with you every step of the way.

Don't miss your Sales Opportunities

Greet your customer with real-time status updates

Sales & Service work together to provide for each side of the house. When a customer has outgrown their current vehicle, send that opportunity to a sales professional in a timely manner. Using SocketTime's real-time status updates, know when a customer arrives that's been flagged for potentially upgrading while they're in. Use it to meet the customers' expectations to look at something different while they're in for service.

Realtime. Everywhere.

Online, Call Center, or in the Shop. It's all connected.

Never buffer or sandbag your shop's capacity, or leave a multi-day gap to create an artificial capacity constraint. SocketTime is live everywhere. Customizable to you and your shop, it allows you to optimize for your true capacity. This availability is what powers every entry point a consumer has to book. Be confident you can handle what's coming in tomorrow without under-booking. It's all true and real data.

Its all powered by GAS™

How do you know which car is more important?

Besides the volume of the sales managers voice, sometimes it's difficult to decide which vehicle is most important for the shop to focus on. Not with SocketTime:RECON! Using a sophisticated algorithm dubbed GAS (Give-A-Sh!t) Rating, you never guess. Your team determines the weight of each of the metrics we use to calculate GAS including days in inventory, Days-On-Market, how many like vehicles you have in stock already, and more. There's no sense prioritizing the same 20-day-old 2020 Blue Sedan when you have eight more like it over a unique vehicle you could sell tomorrow if it was ready and available.
