Why DVI?

Digital Vehicle Inspections were a great convenience item… two years ago. Digital Vehicle Inspection software has quickly gone from a delighter that pleasantly surprised clients to a must-have in shops.

Customers expect to receive text updates throughout the vehicle inspection process and a comprehensive DVI Report that transparently informs them of the state of their vehicle. If you are not using digital vehicle inspections to their fullest potential, then you are falling behind. Let us help catch you up.

Digital Vehicle Inspection FAQ

Chris Cloutier

Chris Cloutier

Architect/President at Autoflow

The Desire for Continuous Improvement

In April of 2016, Chris Cloutier and his brother, Patrick, business partner and ASE L1 Master-certified technician, landed on the front cover of Shop Owner Magazine.  Their story told in the article “Golden Rule Auto Care Yields Success By Putting Its Name To The Test,” explained how they transformed a struggling auto repair shop located in Rowlett, Texas, which they purchased off of Craigslist nearly fifteen years ago.

With a focus on education, training, and outreach, Chris and Patrick joined a Dealer Strategic Planning Twenty Group that meets every few months, where tire and automotive service dealers share best practices and how to improve profitability.  Chris is also involved in local business networking groups, including Toastmasters International.

With 21.1+ years experience as a software developer including employment stints at Southwest Airlines, Wyndham International, and with nationally syndicated morning radio show host, Kidd Kraddick, Chris saw the benefits of the marriage of software and customer service.  As an auto repair shop owner, he realized the need for a better way to communicate with his customers as he observed how communication gaps created bottleneck situations and wasted valuable rack time.

Possessing the entrepreneurial passion to create an innovative solution to solve a common industry problem, Chris designed Autoflow, a tool that dually functions as a visual workflow management system and as a means for keeping customers engaged and informed by providing status updates throughout the stages of the vehicle repair process.

In the October 2015 issue of Ratchet + Wrench Magazine, Golden Rule Auto Care’s story was featured in the recently multi-awarded article “Following the Golden Rule,” which shared how the implementation of Autoflow played a pivotal role in the shop’s process improvement.

Chris applied the familiar practice of quality control from the software industry to the auto repair industry with the December 2016 introduction of Autoflow’s digital quality control inspection add-on, which gives shops the confidence of delivering vehicles to customers in the condition they expected and paid for with no residual issues.

"It helps us to build trust and value with our customers"

Autoflow is a vital tool for our business. It helps us to build trust and value with our customers by validating the repair and maintenance findings. It shows them the parts and places that we see when their vehicle is lifted off the ground. It also builds a strong record for their files with pictures and videos. The integration with Advance Automotive’s Virtual Vehicle program helps educate our customers as to why we recommend the services we recommend and what the repair or maintenance “does” to or for their vehicle. Thank you for developing and staying on top of this product that has supported our business growth since the beginning of our company.
