Workshop Overview:

Why Choose Dr Smash.

Our Mechanical Workshop Software is designed to ensure that you have full control over each and every service conducted. Dr Smash ensures this is done in many ways, One of which is through the use of careful stock control, including Consumables tracking. We ensure accurate Job Cards are populated with not only your standard Service lines but also any additional item used as well, while ensuring that each item is pulled from stock and your stock levels are always kept up-to-date.

Over the last 25+ years Dr Smash has been developing, tweaking and expanding our Workshop Package to cover every aspect of your shops everyday challenges and keeping it in line with industry standards. This has been done by working closely with not only the big industry names but also the mechanical workshops that are just starting out. This allows our package to function efficiently and effectively at all productivity levels in a way that is simple but robust in controls.

We prides ourselves on our ability to customise our software setup to the needs of your Industry and more specifically each shops unique needs. Dr Smash allows the Owners to specify the way they wants their company to run, and is safe in the knowledge that their rules will be applied. While still allowing for the flexibility to make a profit.

What Does Dr Smash Actually Do?

Our Basic package allows you to take control of your core business, Conducting Services and in some cases over the counter sales of parts. We do this through an easy to use Quoting/Jobcard creation window which can be completed line by line or through quick Service selection EG: A Service, B Service, C service – writing up what is required in each type of service , pulling your part prices and standard labour rates through.

Our Job cards are automatically updated when consumables or stock items are taken out of stores and ensures that at the end of the day you are invoicing for every item that you have used, including your mark up ensuring you keep making your profit no matter how busy or forgetful you become. We do the thinking for you.

Our Mechanical Workshop Software comes in Three package sizes. All of which can be added to at anytime.
