Patrick Banta, owner of San Francisco Automotive Solutions was inspired by all the amazing technology around him in the SoMa District. So many incredible ideas come out of this community every day and his shop is right in the middle of it all. He wondered how he could use such cutting-edge technology to better the service provided at his state-of-the-art San Francisco Automotive Solutions repair facility on Harrison Street.
That's where the idea behind Riptide was born. Patrick wanted a more seamless and effective way to communicate with customers and vendors through test messaging. It would enable his staff at San Francisco Automotive Solutions to quickly communicate information and updates, so the customers would always know exactly what was going on with their cars.
Patrick worked closely with local tech experts to design, develop and beta test the Riptide app until it was ready for market. Today, it is a core part of the service at San Francisco Automotive Solutions and many other auto shops and customer service based businesses are utilizing Riptide in their day-to-day operations. It really has streamlined the way many businesses in a variety of industries connect with their customers.
