I have been co-owner of Golden Rule Auto Care in Dallas, TX for 7 years in Dallas Texas. I came from the software industry developing solutions for companies like Southwest Airlines, and Wyndham Intl. I have worked for companies that understand the marriage of service and software, and have applied it in an effective way. After opening my shop I created autotext.me, a workflow, communication and digital vehicle inspection solution, specifically for my shop as a competitive advantage. As I talked to more shop owners I realized there was a need for technology, and have since tried to be involved in helping the industry move forward with technology.
