TechMan makes final of IGA’s BIG Awards

Date: Thursday 27 June 2024

TechMan, the UK’s leading garage management system provider, has been shortlisted as a finalist at the Independent Garage Association’s (IGA) BIG Awards 2024, in the category of ‘Garage Management System of the Year’.

The awards event takes place on Friday 20 September 2024, at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole and will recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of the Great British independent garage sector.

Securing a finalist place at the BIG Awards highlights TechMan’s forward-thinking approach to supporting garages, having built its system from the ground up and using its real-time frustrations and knowledge from its own garage, In Town Automotive.

TechMan, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2024, has been successful in identifying suitable digital solutions to assist technicians and garages, creating a platform that enables them to gain a better understanding and subsequent management of the day-to-day running of a modern workshop.

TechMan’s garage management system has evolved massively in the past decade, from its integration of job cards and check sheets via tablet, enabling businesses to embrace a paperless workshop and track technician efficiency, to its integrated parts ordering to simplify processes and its advanced training programs and dedicated Success Managers to ensure users fully leverage the system's impressive tools.

Plus, TechMan's system enables businesses to access real-time data from anywhere, empowering informed decision-making and operational monitoring, MOT reminders to help manage workload and a personalised KPI dashboard for real-time reports. The company is always listening to its customers, constantly updating its integrations and features to ensure its system offers everything a garage needs.

With over 80 percent of TechMan’s 12,000 users now operating a paperless workshop, TechMan has been able to streamline communications between garage and motorist, providing workshop updates, images and videos.

Leo Freebairn, national sales manager at TechMan, said: “We’d like to extend our gratitude to the IGA and its members for recognising the work of TechMan and its contribution to supporting independent garages. We are dedicated to providing the most effective tools to support businesses in the sector and ensure profitability throughout the entire supply chain.”
