WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. –
Shyft Auto is looking to leverage its recent momentum as an award-winning app designed to help connect consumers to automotive service facilities for contactless service experiences.
On Tuesday, the company announced the launch of a Republic crowdfunding campaign to fund development, national expansion and application improvements.
Shyft Auto was just named Best Global Automotive Software Vehicle Repair Customer Management Solution by Corporate Vision and also among the Top 10 Startups to Watch by the North Carolina Tech Awards.
The company highlighted that consumers can connect with automotive service facilities through a mobile iOS, Android or web-based application. Consumers can schedule an appointment, schedule pickup and delivery requests, track the status of their vehicle while it’s being serviced, communicate with the automotive service facility, pay once the vehicle is completed and view service histories and records without calling the automotive service facility.
Meanwhile, Shyft Auto explained that automotive service facilities also have a web-based application to engage with consumers. Facilities can schedule and manage appointments, manage drivers, fleets and teams available to facilitate pickup and delivery requests, SMS message customers, request and receive online payments, manage loaner vehicles, service libraries, and pickup radius.
Facilities can even charge for pickup and delivery requests if they desire, according to Shyft Auto
“Our mission is to take the inconvenience and anxiety out of vehicle service for consumers while helping automotive service facilities (ASF) increase revenue, retention, and customer satisfaction scores by offering a more engaging and completely digital experience. We are very excited to share our vision, hard work, and cutting-edge technology with the world,” Shyft Auto chief executive officer Marcus Aman said in a news release.
“Automotive service facilities are seeing a 35-120% increase in revenue while consumers are rating them 92% or higher in customer satisfaction ratings. On average, our technology can save an ASF around two hours a day per employee, while the consumer benefits from having auto maintenance or repair from the comfort of their home or work,” Aman went on to say.
Shyft Auto said its fund campaign will include investment amounts start at as little as $150. Investors can receive perks like Shyft Auto merchandise, a Zoom call with the founders and even dinner in person.
