Does your staff say they need more hours in a day? You have hired the right people, you put the right rewards systems in place and you have set your expectations. But, does your team have the tools they need to reach their goals?
Do your sales people have tools to help them easily and promptly follow up with their prospects? Do they have an easy way to give their leads an attractive and accurate quote? Equally important, do you have an efficient way to stay on top of Sales to ensure they have been following up and providing prompt quotes? If your team needs some help, the sooner you find out, the sooner you can provide it. That doesn't mean you need to work more, it means you need to work smarter.
Is your service manager taking the time with his customers to ensure they leave satisfied? Can he easily review work orders to ensure that everything needed for the job was added to the ticket? Did you provide him with an easy way to monitor service tech efficiency? Do you and he have a tool to easily see what work orders are outstanding and their current status? What's it worth to you if you could increase your service profitability by several percent?
What is your parts department profitability compared to plan? Do you have a plan? Many don't because it's not easy to determine without an effective dealer management system. Are your parts being sold at current suggested retail, or at the suggested retail when you bought the part a couple of years ago? Have you given your parts manager a tool to generate stock orders so you have the right inventory - no more and no less - than you need? How about a easy way to track lost sales so you don't miss it next time? How much is it worth you to improve your parts margins by several percent?
