San Carlos, CA, January 05, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Skill-Loan LLC, a San Carlos-based Software as a Service (SaaS) company, today announced the availability of Mechanics & Body Shops Marketplace V2.0 with a Premium Membership service for auto repair and body shops looking for full-time employees and a service for auto technicians looking to supplement their incomes with temporary or part-time work. Premium members can post jobs and find technicians, service advisors and service writers free-of-charge as part of their Premium Membership subscription. Auto technicians can be notified of short-term assignments posted by local auto repair and body shops or post their availability for work. The new release of the Application insures best fit between the employee’s skills and qualifications and what the shop owners are looking for.
“On average, every auto repair employee is out of the shop 4 weeks of the year for vacation, sick days, jury and military duty and personal time-off,” said Elie Massabki, founder and CEO of Skill-Loan. “With technicians contributing $1000-$2000/day in gross profits to a shop, shop owners are missing out on $10,000 to $20,000 in gross profits each year for each technician they employ. At the same time, many technicians are looking for opportunities to supplement their incomes during their time off. Mechanics Marketplace helps auto repair shops put significant profits back in their pockets by having borrowed technicians and free-lancers cover for their absent workers while helping technicians increase their incomes.”
Skill-Loan had its first Northern California mid-Peninsula kick-off meeting on December 19, 2017 with local members to learn how to best make use of the Mechanics & Body Shops Marketplace application and discuss common issues they would like to tackle as a group. While many collaboration ideas were discussed, shop owners unanimously confirmed the need for temporary and full-time technicians. Other regional networks are now being formed in various US cities and technicians are being introduced to the App.
"The number one issue that keeps me and my general manager up at night is the availability of reliable and experienced technicians," said Mark Schwartz, CEO and Owner at Holland Car Care (www.hollandcarcare.com) in San Carlos, California. "I think this is a nationwide problem and especially in the California Bay Area. I am pleased to finally find a company that is focused on our industry and where I can go to find full-time employees as well as technicians to cover for my absent ones."
“As an 18-year independent, high-end and European car service, repair shop and used car dealer, we do share employees and knowledge frequently from shop to shop. We work closely with factory dealers as well, especially for newer cars and more complicated programing. Mechanics Marketplace is an ideal platform to help me with both,” commented Zim Gwee, owner of Topline Automobile Inc. (www.toplineautos.com) in San Mateo, California. “I have 28 years technician experience; I have invested heavily in high-end diagnostics equipment and I am excited about the opportunity to sublet services to and from other shops and recoup my investment faster.”
