Meet the team! Sammy Newman: Workshop Software Auto Sales and Success Consultant

Sammy joined the team in mid 2020 to help demonstrate and sell the Workshop Software product to business owners with a need to save time and money, getting their focus back on the big picture of staff, stock, sales and customers. Always ready for a chat and wearing colourful outfits, she was glad to tell us more about herself and her take on our garage management solution.

What do you see as the key benefits of the product?

There are many great benefits within the software, but the Automated Service reminders and the integrations with accounting software and parts ordering are massive time savers on their own!

Which features do subscribers mention as the biggest help to their business?

People always mention how easy it is to use as well as being able to keep history of each vehicle. Knowing their data is backed up and they can work from home, being cloud based, so they don’t have to hang around the workshop after hours!

How do you recommend the product and help automotive store owners?

I like to find out what they’re currently using and how much time it is taking them to do all of the things that Workshop Software automates. Its great to also find out about their plans for the future and how many more mechanics would they like to employ to build their business.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 

I’m a big fan of snowboarding! I also love mountain biking and getting out for hikes with my friends. Beaches and mountains are my jam.

Which elements of living on Sydney’s Northern Beaches do you enjoy?

The beach itself for sure! The fact you don’t have to travel over the Bridge (which you need a passport for 😉 ) for great bars and restaurants is a massive plus.

What’s a quality film, book, show, doco, game you have watched or played recently?

Book – The Universe Has Your Back by Gabrielle Burnstein

Show – The Boys on Amazon Prime

Doco – American Playboy the Hugh Hefner Story (very interesting)

What’s your dream holiday, post COVID?

A few weeks in Japan, snowboarding. I would also love to go back to Colorado and Utah, also snowboarding!
