At the core, Automotive integrations works with clients to identify and correct operational inefficiencies to help them improve profits and scale their businesses.
It means we will start with a 30-minute phone call or an in-person visit to start getting to know you and your business and discover what you would most like to achieve and how we can help. Then we will work up a proposal for the work we think should be done and how long we believe it will take.
From our report and recommendations, the client may select one or all of our proposals, we set up project plans, budgets, resources, tracking tools, and engagement timelines. Projects may last 30 days, 90 days, 6 months, a year, or more. We also offer monthly ongoing support subscriptions.

No. We take the time to get to know you and your business to discover what it is that would help you the most. We build on the things we start with that we believe will make the most impact.
No, we are not. We will recommend partners and manage those implementation projects on your behalf. (SEO, Marketing, etc.)
We are a small team, and depending on the project we’re working on, you may work with a few of our experts but we will assign one point person for you to act as a traffic cop, of sorts.
For a consulting project, we’ll perform an on-site visit engagement that typically takes 40 hours: 32 hours of shop or plant tour, process overview, documentation repository review, HR overview, business strategy or plan for the remaining quarters, 18-month and 3-year goals. We perform a SWOT analysis for segments of the business. We review the sales process and tracking. We review the current technology stack, in detail. We also review any e-commerce solutions, marketing, and SEO activities. Then it’s another 8 hours to create and provide reporting and recommendations.
Other projects, aside from consulting, may not require a site visit, but if they do, we are happy to.
Yes! We are not a fan of companies that charge an exorbitant fee for a technology project and then walk away, washing their hands of it. We want you and your team to learn how to proficiently use any technology we bring to the table so that you’ll benefit from using it. That’s why we’re here; we want to help you.
We work in blocks. We create a proposal showing blocks of time for purchase. Budget hours may include Project Management, Data services, Creative services, Branding, technology subscriptions, website builds, training, technology/systems scoping and implementations, software engineering, development services, and more.
