Heavy-duty technology provider Karmak recently updated its Director Series service shop and parts inventory management software. Designed for service shops, parts distributors and fleets with service operations, the user-friendly system offers a cost-effective solution for tracking unit repair costs, preventive maintenance and parts inventory; according to the company; the new release adds enhancements for creating repair order quotes and improved reporting capabilities.
Karmak says the Windows-based Director Series software includes two main applications, ServiceDirector and PartsDirector: ServiceDirector helps improve shop productivity by tracking unit, customer, work-in-process and scheduled maintenance information, and provides tools for analyzing technician productivity and job profitability. It also supports barcode time entry and labor pricing by door rate, operation or customer; and
PartsDirector, available as a standalone application, helps reduce inventory costs and increase inventory efficiency with cross-referencing, core tracking, cycle counting, tailored pricing and profit analysis reporting. It helps users quickly locate part and warranty information and analyze part usage and turn cycles, and it also helps streamline purchasing with electronic ordering from suppliers using the Karmak Legend or INFO 5 business system.
Integrated with QuickBooks Pro accounting software, Director Series checks customer credit during the order process and generates accounting reports.
