An automotive service advisor acts as a bridge between the customer and the automotive service technician. They work with customers to determine problems with a vehicle and provide technicians with accurate repair descriptions. The advisor translates repair problems, which may be very complicated, into language the customer can understand.
In sum, a service advisor opens the service order file, updates customer and vehicle information, identifies customer needs, communicates completion expectations, finalizes the invoice, explains services performed, answers customer questions/complaints and collects payment. An estimate is prepared and gets the customer to authorize the work on their vehicle. Auto service advisors also work with customers to schedule service appointments and handle telephone enquiries.
