I am not too close to the budget side as we are a supplier, but have a pretty good handle on expenses that Dealerships experience. Do you have an idea of how much you are paying to suppliers over the past 12 months?

 

If you could provide me with some fairly accurate total spend numbers by category, I could help you estimate savings opportunities by doing business differently - Strategic sourcing.
