The Importance of Acting on Data in the Wake of Irma and Harvey

The recent devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma is horrifying in terms of lives lost, lives affected, and the billions of dollars in property damage. If there is any silver lining to be found, it is only that things could have been much worse if not for residents taking action on data-driven early warning…See More

Service Advisors: End Your Day with the Beginning in Mind!

When you first come to work every morning, do you spend time planning your day, or do you dive right in and start working? Depending upon your role in the dealership, it may not matter that much. However, service advisors really don't have a choice. Your service department opens early and it's busy as soon as it opens. Ending your day with the…See More

How to Insulate Your Dealership From the Next Sales Downturn

What is profit? Quite simply, it's the difference between what you spend and what you make. Most dealers, when they think about profit, immediately think about how they can make more. They strategize how to increase revenue, increase gross margins, increase sales or increase customer pay ROs.   However, spending less is an important…See More

Why Actionable Data is Better Than Big Data

Big data has been a big theme for several years now, but many dealers still don't have a thorough understanding of what it can do for them.I believe that's because the term 'big data' implies a sense of overwhelm or at the very least, something that is time-consuming. I think when a lot of dealers hear the term 'big data' they imagine sitting down with piles of…See More

Don't Rely on Fake News!

For decades now, dealerships have gotten by with ‘self-reporting’ their financial performance, using very subjective methods and rarely adopting automation. I call this 'fake news.' I say this as it is similar to what has become somewhat of a buzzword of late for the type of …See More

3 Service KPIs to Review Every Thursday

For service managers, I have found that Thursday is a good day to do a trial close as you get ready for the end of the week. By Thursday you know pretty well where you stand and if you discover problems, you still have two days to get them cleaned up. A trial close starts with closing every Repair Order (RO) that can…See More

It's Friday. What's Your Weekend Looking Like?

If you're in auto sales, the term "TGIF" - Thank God It's Friday! - probably has little meaning to you. In this industry, Fridays are spent gearing up for the weekend. Speaking of which, do you know what your weekend is looking like? To answer this all-important question, it's a good idea for General Sales Managers to sit down…See More

How to Avoid Sales End-of-the-Month Catch Up

If you're in dealership management you're probably familiar with the routine. No matter how great your intentions are to keep a steady sales pace all month, it’s month-end and you're playing catch up. Even worse, sometimes you believe it's going to be a great month until a nasty number shows up on your balance sheet during…See More

It's Wednesday. How's Your Week Going?

In auto dealerships when managers hear the question "How's your week going?" they know it's not always a personal question. Someone--usually the General Manager--wants to know whether they're on track to hit goals. The most reliable source to find out how it's going is to drill down into Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). We…See More
