Digital Vehicle
Inspections (DVI)

The fastest, easiest inspection tool that leaves traditional digital vehicle inspections behind. Shop-Ware takes your processes to the next level with integrated workflows and unlimited forms.

Go beyond “digital”.

Digital vehicle inspections, or DVIs, recast the standard checklist (used by repair shops for decades) into an electronic format for ease of reference and distribution. Traditional DVIs are otherwise generic: paper-like lists presented on a screen, with little flexibility and segmented details.

Eliminate parallel workflows, harness unlimited templates.

Shop-Ware takes inspections to the next level, to execute your processes. Shop-Ware DVIs are native to the repair order, integral with vehicle services, so technicians can follow requirements across all activities, from initial inspections through repairs, and enter their findings all in one place. Inspections can be standard or custom, across each and every type of service, be it a maintenance, diagnosis, or repair. Inspections are also associated with vehicle Year, Make Model, and Engine Size on each repair order automatically, for unlimited customization, canned library, reference and reuse.

Speed + diligence.

Work in progress means inspections in progress. Native DVIs mean no additional dispatch or interface necessary. Check off condition and enter notes in seconds. Attach any kind of media seamlessly; Shop-Ware will organize all of the details – photos, videos, scan data, TSBs – for maintenance, diagnosis, and repairs. Stop treating vehicles as “one-size-fits-all”, with a monster checklist that’s cumbersome and time consuming to fill out. Allow the flexibility of Shop-Ware to make inspections a natural part of technician feedback on the repair order.

“Shop-Ware integrates everything I need for managing appointments, performing inspections, writing estimates, ordering parts, and communicating with customers in one package. Particularly happy that it has built in digital inspection capability, allowing me to avoid third-party add-ons at additional cost.”

Jasper Beier, Owner at Modern Age Auto Clinic

Showcase your value.

Customers will see checklists and their results as part of the repair order document, whether visiting the RO remotely or receiving an electronic or printed copy. This builds the value of all services: maintenance, diagnosis, and repairs, and showcases your attention to detail. Results present in a clean and design-savvy format, conveying quality and helpfulness, instead of confusion, frustration, or overwhelm.

Quality control.

Native inspections = native accountability. Techs cannot mark services complete until all checklist items are marked off. No one can close the work order until all services are marked complete. Therefore every inspection is guaranteed complete. Shop-Ware’s flexibility allows you to customize forms to different vehicles, so extraneous inspection items don’t get in the way. Within individual repair orders, you can also add whatever additional inspection items may come up, on the fly, to build in quality control no matter the circumstances of the job.


Create and manage your inspection form library with Shop-Ware’s industry leading canned job technology. Build as many forms as you wish, for any type of job, and Shop-Ware will automatically learn which processes fit which vehicles. You may edit and update any form at any time. Set labor times for inspections to track technician efficiency on each and every repair order, to measure the time it takes to complete the inspection against expectations. Charge for inspections or keep them courtesy; any associated charges (or discounts) flow into the financials of the repair order automatically. You will see the impact of your inspection efforts (and the corresponding sell through opportunity) as a natural part of your management metrics, keeping the inspection native to all repair order activities. Shop-Ware’s native DVIs will save you time on every repair order and unlock your capacity for more detailed, higher value service.
