You read it right, you can now book your next car maintenance schedule through an app!
AutoServed is an auto repair and car maintenance app in the Philippines that connects car owners and auto shops. Like Airbnb for your car, it lets you create your car’s profile, shows auto shop listings, and sets an appointment with them. It is also a contactless, hassle-free, and time-saving solution for those who own a car but are not that familiar with the technicalities.
AutoServed founder Mark Saberola shares that in his almost 2 decades in the auto repair industry, he realized that there are a lot of lost opportunities to convert customers due to their lack of marketing know-how, time to address inquiries from car owners, and a smooth system to run their business especially now that everything is online. He designed AutoServed to solve these issues and make it easier for them to focus on running their shops.
“Sa halos dalawang dekada ko sa auto repair industry, na-realize ko na madaming nasasayang na opportunities na makapag-convert ng customers ang mga repair shops dahil sa kakulangan ng marketing know-how, at ng oras para sumagot sa mga inquiries ng mga car owners, at ng maayos na system upang mapatakbo ng maayos ang business nila, lalo na ngayon na halos lahat ay online na. Dinisenyo namin ang AutoServed para matugunan ang mga ito at mapadali ang kanilang trabaho, nang mas matutukan nila ang pag-papatakbo ng kanilang mga shops.” – Mark Saberola, Founder, AutoServed
Meanwhile, co-founder Kevin Abalos says that “as a car owner myself, I always lose my repair order/service billing. I believe that having your car repair history at your fingertips would make car owners’ lives much easier.” He also expressed his mission to help shop owners to adapt to the digital world. “We want to help independent shop owners digitize in a fast-changing world.”
In the app, you can register an unlimited number of cars where you can view each of their maintenance schedules, get quotations from different shops, book and pay their transactions directly in it, and keep track of your repair history. You can download it from Google Play and sign up to try it now!
