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!

In fact, you can expect to save hundreds, maybe even thousands of pounds if you use a template instead of a designer. But will the end result be as professional? Combining large amounts of information with easy navigation is integral to an estate agency website and might sound like something you should leave to a professional. But yes, you can get a template that does as good a job.
