Great reminder Richard. When my dad had his store we did the "vender recap" every year (usually in the fall). It allowed us to not only be aware of who did what, but also made the ones that increased their fees (for whatever reason; if any) stand out and put us in a better position to negotiate better contracts. Regardless of the store size; Expense control is what keeps you in the game for generations.. Great post.

These "Automotive Management Minute" video clips from Richard Bustillo have each contained genuine best practices for the management of a car dealership... This video on expense control and supplier management process is priceless.  I guarantee you that any dealership where the General Manager takes to heart what is in this clip and implements the process described by Richard will save thousands of dollars per month... Maybe even enough money to afford to hire a full time dedicated Digital Marketing Manager!
