This Family-Owned Shop Supercharged Gross Profits to 58%

Bob Noriega, owner of AutoWorks of Tampa, first discovered his love for cars as a teenager. Later, he grew his passion into a successful business that uses mobile mechanic software, pioneering a team of ASE-certified technicians.

Established in 2009, this full-service automotive repair center specializes in both domestic and foreign vehicles. Family-owned and operated, AutoWorks of Tampa takes pride in the quality of service they provide, using only the latest diagnostic equipment and best-in-class replacement parts. That includes the top shop management software.

Their “service with a smile” mentality and keen attention to detail paid off, having been named a recipient of the critic’s choice award for Best Auto Shop in the Tampa Bay area.

The challenge of managing the numbers

Daily shop management was far from easy for Bob, who spent much of his time manually crunching numbers. He also struggled with finding a way to price out his ROs so they could make a decent profit. Overall, the shop’s operations were inefficient and Bob knew that something needed to change.

The results thanks to mobile mechanic software

After struggling with a clunky and time-consuming automotive software, Bob decided to try Shop-Ware. After adjusting using Shop-Ware’s GP Optimizer, AutoWorks of Tampa hit its monthly targets for the first time .

Suddenly, Bob had the best year in shop efficiency and profitability. Another big win was the extra time he had from not having to be at the shop every day.

The Takeaway

Like many shop owners, Bob struggled with efficiency and profitability. After implementing Shop-Ware, his gross profits soared and the shop was running itself. There is no better example of more time, more profit than AutoWorks of Tampa.
