Epicor Supports God’s Garage Mission To Help Single Mothers Obtain Reliable Transportation

The Texas-based, non-profit repair shop receives Epicor ISE software to further its mission.

Epicor Software Corp. has awarded a free subscription to the Epicor Integrated Service Estimator (ISE) mechanical service estimating solution to God’s Garage, a non-profit automotive repair shop headquartered in Conroe, Texas. The charity, primarily made up of volunteer technicians, will use the donation from Epicor in support of its mission to provide reliable, repaired vehicles to single mothers, widows and wives of deployed military members.

“Working to enrich the lives of single mothers, widows and military wives by ensuring they have reliable transportation is a noble cause,” said Stephen Gannon, senior director, automotive, product management and product development, Epicor. “This organization will have an opportunity to help even more people by increasing operational efficiency and productivity at the service counter by using Epicor ISE software.”

God’s Garage Owner Chris Williams founded the company after spotting a mother and her child walking along the side of Highway 105 in the rain. He offered her a ride and discovered that her own vehicle had been in the shop for months. Today, God’s Garage supports women in need of reliable transportation, charging nothing for labor on automotive repairs and giving away free vehicles to qualifying recipients. The charity has repaired and given away hundreds of vehicles, according to Williams.

“The Epicor ISE solution is going to help us repair more vehicles by allowing me to more promptly identify, price and source parts, and it’s going to free me up to do the things that I need in order to repair more cars and let other people do things that they can do,” said Williams. “As we roll out this system to our volunteers, it’s going to help the bottom line and, ultimately, help more people.”

Used by thousands of tire dealerships, oil-and-lube facilities, transmission service business, tune-up specialists, and general repair shops, the Epicor ISE solution enables users to write comprehensive, accurate repair estimates and identify, price and source replacement parts in a fraction of the time normally required through manual processes.

“Epicor ISE software is the ideal fit for automotive service businesses. It’s easy to use, and can streamline your business process, transform your overall customer experience and drive your business growth,” added Gannon.

Parts, labor and pricing information can automatically be imported into estimates, work orders and invoices, simplifying the workload for shop service writers. In addition, an optional, mobile “Smart Inspection Sheet” feature helps to boost service bay productivity by allowing technicians to record the condition of key vehicle systems and components during comprehensive, guided inspections.

The solution is powered by the Epicor replacement parts database, as well as popular repair and maintenance packages, an aftermarket flat-rate labor guide, OEM-recommended vehicle service intervals information, a VIN decoder, cross-reference parts database and more.
