Customer Reminders: This is clever. Excel can be programmed to send an Email when a cell gets beyond a certain limit __ so if you're doing oil changes that should be done every few months, just collect the customer's Email address and have Excel use it to send them a helpful Email a few months after they had their oil changed last! The powers that Excel can offer your auto shop stretch so far beyond merely watching the profit margins that if you're not using it for more advanced functions, you're losing out. Stretch it's wings! Set some automatic alarms for your inventory and some automatic Emails for your customers, and see what Excel can do for you!
When you need a special touch _ Key card envelopes are a great way to present your small business's gift cards to customers. If you have plastic gift cards made up, it is much more elegant to include a custom paper envelope with your business name, than to leave the presentation up to the person purchasing the card. Instead of your gift card getting unceremoniously taped inside a greeting card, it can be gifted with your business name, location, and information right on the envelope. For another special touch, Tyvek envelopes can offer a custom feel and look for a high_end resort or other business that wants their envelope to convey the status of the company.
