Pros
From customer service to product to updates that seem to be constantly moving toward better and better, this program is amazing.
The customer support is the best in helping and fulfilling our organization request and needs. Managing our invoice has been better with this software.
I have never had an issue with their program, when I need it, it works. I love it for the price point and simplicity, it is perfect for me.
Cons
Issues with pc use(I have not tried new windows app yet), printer problems, occasional bugs and syncing problems across devices.
Frustrating the way I had to put in some info, and couldn't go back and edit changes without starting over again.
There are several reports however there is no single report that will give you all of this at a glance.

You need ARI for Auto repair.

Reviewed a month ago

I love it. I could not do auto repair without it and customers are impressed with how professional it makes everything look.

Pros

I love the ease of use ARI provides, it is simple to track customers and write up invoices. They integrate parts tech which is new to me but a wonderful add on. But the biggest key thing that keeps me an ARI user for life is the customer servjce they provide. Customer service is very prompt and they always respond and actually listen and make changes. I lersonally have had things changed that i suggested to there team amd to ny amazement it was there on the next update.

Cons

The old interface i lreffered much mlre to this new one they have but i am sure with time they will work out the kinks. Everyone apparently wanted a new interface i was one of the few that liked the old one a lot.

It is inexpensive and structured to let you grow the account with your business.
