Shrinking new-car margins are here to stay, and so is your dependence on fixed operations. Everyone must be concerned about expenses and monitor them for results. Today’s topic gets overlooked by most. Team members adjust pricing on repair…See More

Dealerships have many reasons to work with staff and write the best repair orders possible. This helps the dealership in so many ways however to carry a special interest in today’s dealership environment. First, it is critical in maximizing submissions to receive retail pricing on warranty repairs.
