VGM Technician puts daily task management in your technicians’ hands.

Using our technician companion app, your technicians can manage their daily tasks, saving hours each week by staying focused. They can:

Manage daily tasks
Your technicians can view which tasks and jobs are assigned to them.
Time tracking
Using the clock-on/clock-off feature, your technicians can track the amount of time they spend on jobs, allowing you to ensure your workshop runs efficiently.
Task completion
As your technicians finish a job, they can mark tasks as complete, keeping them focused on outstanding work.
Technician efficiency
Using VGM's reporting suite you can generate a detailed breakdown of hours worked by your technicians. Each technician will also be assigned an overall efficiency rating for their performance over a specific period.

View the entire job card.

While the tasks are small, achievable chunks of work, your technicians can also access the entire job card, including customer and vehicle information, labour, bookings and parts.


As your technicians are performing a task or looking through a job card, they can add advisories.

Advisories can then be included as part of any printouts to be given to the customer to inform them of any recommended work you advise immediately or later.


Your technicians can also add comments as they perform a task or job. Comments are an internal communication tool to discuss a specific job amongst colleagues.

Frequently asked questions

The app is developed to work on Android (8.0+) and IOS (11+). We personally recommend the Samsung Galaxy A7 tab as it's not too costly and it's the tablet we primarily develop on (alongside a recent iPhone and iPad). VGM Technician is only available through the google Play Store and the Apple app store.
We cannot recommend Amazon Fire devices, as they ship with modified opperating systems and don't come with the Google Play Store installed by default.

VGM Technician costs £20 per month but requires you already by subscribed to Virtual Garage Manager.

If you want to store photos, video and audio against your VHC checklist items, you'll also need the enhanced media package which is a further of £20 per month. This cost will cover the expense of storing, processing and serving your media via Amazon Web Services.

We won't be implementing a hard limit on the maximum number of images and videos you can store and implementing a fair-use policy to prevent fraud and abuse of the services. Our fair-use limit is 10GB worth of data (approx. 25,000 images depending on image size) per branch, which we believe to be sufficient for most businesses.

Additional usage above the fair use limit may result in additional charges.

Without the technician companion app, there is no way to complete VHC's.

We have a wide range of features lined up, including:

  • Adding a video to VHC's, so you can communicate issues and advisories via video.
  • Service checklists.
  • Vehicle damage inspections.
  • Enhancing the digital VHC report to allow quotation and online booking for advisories and items that require urgent attention.
  • Queuing automated reminders via SMS and email for future advisories (e.g., tread depths).

We're also looking for feedback if we're missing features that could be valuable.
