Doing the Schedule: Of course, Excel can be used to graphically display what times any given employee will be on the clock and thus make it easy to ensure that all of the necessary coverage is there for you. Customer Tracking: Few businesses need to track customers more accurately over a longer period of time than an auto shop; Excel offers you the power to do just that. By setting up an entry form that gathers the necessary information and then stores it deep in another sheet, you can easily keep records on hundreds of customers and their vehicles over months and years. Receipts: Because of an auto shop's specific needs when it comes to breaking down parts, labor, taxes, and other charges, Excel makes for an excellent receipt_making program.
