Quick Tip: How to Use the VIN Scan Decode in RepairCenter Mobile

Creating a new opportunity using the RepairCenterTM mobile app is even easier with the addition of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) scan decode feature. Now you have the ability to use your mobile device to scan the VIN and automatically decode vehicle details when creating a new opportunity. 

Here’s how:

1. From the "Opportunity" list, click on the "plus (+)" icon to create a new opportunity.

2. Under the "Vehicle" tab, you’ll see a barcode icon. Simply tap the icon which launches the VIN scan feature.

3. Scan the VIN and the vehicle details automatically decode.


In a hurry and want to scan the VIN later?

We’ve added the Opportunity and Repair Order edit feature, so you can scan the VIN or edit the job details whenever it’s convenient for you.

  1. From the "Opportunity" or "Repair Order" list, select the job you want to edit and hit the edit icon at the top right of the list.
  2. Tap "Edit" to edit the details in any section and hit the green "Save" button to return to the job list.
