  • Most shops miss at least $300,000 to $500,000 in GP dollars that come in their front door and walk right back out partly because the advisor doesn’t have the time to create or tap into those GP dollars.
  • Adding personnel creates a better stress-free environment to capture NEW GP dollars. Each advisor has an admin assistant. Hire a second or third advisor and divide up the roles over three advisors. Hire a customer relations/receptionist manager. Hire a parts expeditor. Hire a service expeditor. Hire a Call Center. Hire a Shop foreman that dispatches all work and handles technology. Hire an Advisor Efficiency Coach
  • Define the role and character traits
