    Does anyone know if this type of software exists?


    Say you were a mechanic that also performed MOT tests, if you have a database to record MOT expiry dates which integrates with SMS to auto send out reminders, this would be an effective, time saving tool.


    Having the freedom to then send out seasonal messages promoting winter / summer vehicle checks would also enable upselling & ongoing interaction with the customer base.

    I know some dentists have a system of some sorts but I am not sure if they have the two functions combined.

    I'm not sure about windows software, but there might be a web script that can do this. If not, then it could easily be coded.

    Basically. The mechanic would input all the details into the database. Each morning the web script would scan the database for entries near expiration and the script would then use a SMS API to send out messages to the users.

    I can go deeper into this if you want, but I kept it short and simple as I don't know your experience with web dev.

    I know a few people have done this with Twilio on a website they built, look at some of the programmers and someone can create this on a web based admin system.

    I would be interested in programming something like this...please let me know more information about how the mechanics work and maybe we can work something out.
