    Best Practices for a Successful Parts Physical Count

    Nothing stresses a dealership parts manager more than the prospect of the annual physical inventory. Perpetual inventory efforts and monthly reconciliations notwithstanding, the annual physical count can be a white-knuckle experience for parts managers. This won’t be your run-of-the-mill listing of the tasks parts managers should be doing to get ready for the physical, although some of those tasks are inescapable. Mark will cover other issues as well. When should dealers outsource the physical inventory and when should they keep it in house? How much should you expect to pay someone to conduct the physical? Why in some cases a full actual count is not what is called for. New technology solutions will also be reviewed.

    If you continually find yourself "balancing" your best technicians' hours by giving them "gravy" maintenance tasks, a "re-think" is in order.

    Improvements include a much better-served customer, improved CSI & profitability, and a better-focused management team!

    The 1980s saw the introduction and growth of teams, simple support groups and lateral support groups…all of which provided benefits to smooth shop operation. But the accelerating growth and influence of advanced technologies are forcing some primarily large and high-line dealerships to conclude that a new organization in service is required to help them make the grade.

    Join Lloyd for this special presentation, featuring two case studies of a "re-thinking" of how the service department organizes and compensates productive technicians for a smoother, faster and more profitable work flow.

    Caveat: Lloyd cautions that smaller dealers and most Asian import dealerships will not find an immediate application for the lessons learned via these case studies. But if you have 15 or more technicians, are a large High Line or Domestic Dealership, the ideas and suggestions will definitely apply.

    You will learn:
    How to re-engage managers in the dispatching of work so that the best technician available gets the job that fits his/her skills most closely
    How to alter pay plans to match the skill needed to satisfy the customer quickly and efficiently - one dealership case study involves a union shop
    How to organize the shop workforce so that all are focused on the customer's immediate needs
    Why all this leads to improvements in CSI, in job satisfaction and department profits

    How to create a Career Path for positions that do not appear to have one. Learn how recognition and career advancement are better motivators than money alone.

    You can't fault service and advisors from wondering…"Where do I go from here?"

    Traditionally, dealership fixed operations does not provide for many avenues that the rank and file can aspire to.

But it is also clear that employee recognition and career advancement rank higher than money as a primary motivator.

    Fixed Ops expert Greg Criss says that dealerships can improve employee retention and morale, as well as attract better applicants by offering a clear career path…a way for them to move up in the business.

    You Will Learn:

    ## How to help technicians and service advisors set achievable career goals
    ## Ways to identify an employee's knowledge base, skills and other usable assets
    ## An easy-to-use method for creating accurate job descriptions

    The growing number of CPO - Extended Warranty Covered- vehicles places a new layer of opportunity for fraudulent claiming by overly aggressive technicians and customer-facing advisors and supervisors.

    The growing threat of an audit of your Extended Warranty related repairs and claims brings the issue of sub-standard decision making and repair documentation back to the here and now.

    Fraudulent or error-filled claims could cause violations that could cost the dealership in 6-figure charge backs… and in rare instances additional civil or criminal difficulties.

    1.Advisors not willing to make the customer pay for a not-covered item…path of lease immediate resistance…
    2.Technicians that become skilled at "penciling" a repair so that it adds more flat rate hours to his/she paycheck. Someone else pays…so who cares?
    3.Advisor and management pay plans that could be judged to encourage the bending of the rules.
    4.Lack of management concern for all the above

    You will:
    •Review a Repair/Claim Documentation Check List… How Recalls & P.P. Maint complicate warranty record keeping
    •Learn how to spot potential violations and self audit
    •Discover how modern technology and electronic record-keeping gives auditors more complete control
    •Develop a culture that does not tolerate expanding the rules for self-benefit
    •Rest Easier knowing that your repair/claim documentation is in better shape to face the auditors
