Thoughts on how to utilize big data in automotive repair shop management systems.

Next Generation Automotive Shop Management Systems

I’ve designed a lot of software systems throughout my career. A focus has always been put on usability, design, form and function; What if we turn that on its ear and take a dive into data and how data can improve user experience. …What?
