My name is Dave Tucci from Tucci Hot Rods. We’ve been building custom cars for 18 years and in those 18 years we used an old time clock to keep track of the hours that we put into custom cars. All of the descriptions and work detail was hand written on the punch cards by myself or my technicians. To make an invoice I had to go through all the cards, add the time, read the descriptions and enter the information into the computer to produce a customer bill. On average this took me about 3 hours per invoice.
With Klokwork all the timing and descriptions are done electronically. The QR code produced by the Klokwork software contains the customer info and work order number. When I'm done working on the job I scan the QR code to clock out and dictate into the app what I did during that time period. The app sends the time activity and the work description back to the Klokwork software and into the customer file. Now when I create the invoice the timing data and work detail are already there. I just select which time stamps to invoice, select the parts and materials, deduct from the available balance and I'm done. The same size invoice which took me 3 hours before Klokwork I can now do in 15 minutes.

Straightedge Auto Restoration in Idaho is a mid-sized shop that also used conventional time clock system and hand written notes to record work on custom vehicles. According to Straightedge, "prior to Klokwork, our techs wrote down hours and work detail in a notebook throughout the day. To create an invoice we had two full-time secretaries tabulate all of the hours and manually enter the information into spreadsheets. Our secretaries spent approximately 2 hours to put together 1 invoice."
With Klokwork, Straightedge technicians are no longer required to hand write hours and detail into notebooks, thus freeing up more time to work on the vehicles. Putting together an invoice was cut from 2 hours to 20 minutes. As a result of the increase in productivity only one front-office employee is now required to create invoices. In addition to saving time and resources, Straightedge said, "Klokwork is helping us make better sense of our shop and our billing process. We dropped all our other spreadsheet and computer programs and are now just using Klokwork for our shop management purposes. We also were able to reduce administrative staffing and are saving the cost of 1 full-time employee annually. We look forward to discovering even more efficiencies and increased profitability created by the Klokwork system."
