    Original Air Date: December 10, 2009
    Program Length: 1 hour 44 minutes

    Forget what you think you know about Succession Planning for your dealerships.  Big changes are coming.  Automakers have taken note of the turmoil in the dealer body caused by factory bankruptcies, dealers bailing out, relocations, consolidations, and more.  OEMs will want to have a more explicit say in how a dealer passes ownership of the family business.  That’s a “game changer,” folks.  What will the role of the dealership general managers be in this new scheme? How will the manufacturers’ criteria change? What new tax laws are coming? Are there new estate planning techniques? What does all this mean for car dealers, their families, and their dealership managers? Learn More

  4. DEI4 Rick Heronime: Redefining Parts Obsolescence & A Process for Better Control

    DEI4 Rick Heronime: Redefining Parts Obsolescence & A Process for Better Control

    $298.00

    (Recorded Webinar)
    Presenter: Rick Heronime, Senior V.P. and COO of Dealership CSI a fixed operations advisory firm
    Original Air Date: Thursday September 22, 2011
    Program Length: 120 minutes

    How to defrost these frozen assets with a better approach...

    If the industry standard definition of Parts Obsolescence is not helping to reduce this profit drain and prime example of frozen capital – then maybe it’s time to work with a new definition. Fixed operations expert Rick Heronime has a better way. Simply looking at no-sale after 12 months is just not getting to the center and cause of the problem. Rick will focus on the causes of Obsolescence and on the processes to control each one. Can you finally whip this monster back in line – Rick thinks so and wants to share this with you via this webinar.

    DEJ3 Chuck Hartle’ : The Real Impact of Factory Auto Stock Replenishment Programs – Study Results!

    $298.00

    (Recorded Webinar)
    Presenter: Chuck Hartle’, President of PartsEdge
    Original Air Date: October 20, 2011
    Program Length: 120 minutes

    Programs like GM’s RIM and Chrysler’s ARO are now about 5 years old. They came with promises of huge benefits for the dealership. Study reveals the true picture & the numbers are shocking!

    Seeking to measure if Automatic Stock Replenishment (ASR) programs have lived up to the hype and promise, parts guru Chuck Hartle’ recently conducted a study designed to measure before and after performance.

    Key Question: How many of the part numbers automatically ordered would meet standard dealership phase-in criteria? Dealers and Parts Managers are not going to be happy with the results!

    You receive answers to the following questions:
    We can tell the programs have provided more parts inventory “width”, but have these new parts helped to improve the off-the-shelf fill rates?
    Do ASR programs improve a dealer’s inventory for better customer satisfaction?
    Do ASR programs improve the dealer’s profitability?
    What can you do to unfreeze some of your frozen parts capital – some caused by ASRs?
    What can you do to improve the ROI on your parts inventory investment in spite of ASR constraints?
    Do dealerships really need ASR programs at all?
    What are the numbers to back up Chuck’s conclusions?
