Fixed Ops Tip: Keeping Track of Shop Tools with Special Tool Inventory

Need to keep better track of your dealership's shop tools? Use the Special Tool Inventory feature in Autosoft's Parts module to keep all the tools in the shop.

The Special Tool Inventory menu is used to track tools. Once a tool is entered into the system, you can use this menu to sign parts in and out, and the system will track to whom the part was issued and the date the part was issued. This helps you keep track of the tools.

Access the Special Tool Inventory menu by following these steps:

Step 1. From the Parts Inventory main menu, select Special Inventories. The Special Inventories & Maintenance menu will open. 


Step 2. Click Special Tool Inventory. The Special Tool Inventory menu will open.


As always the F1 key will give you access to the instructions to use the Special Tool Inventory menu.
