Dealers are 10X more likely to get audited by an OEM than by the IRS. The second-largest reason for a dealership's warranty debit is improper documentation within a repair order's Complaint, Cause and Correction.
Technicians are compensated for fixing vehicles, not for administrative skills. Unfortunately, the revenue collected by a dealership's service department relies heavily on documentation. With Pencilwrench, technicians compose clear, concise and compliant event descriptions in seconds.
