HOW TO ESTABLISH A TIME-TO-MARKET RECON CULTURE

You can’t improve what you can’t measure

If your team is still using a spreadsheet, a whiteboard - or your fingers - to track and manage reconditioning, your process leaks time and money that’s wrecking retail gross and inventory turn. 

GMs who Create Recon Time-to-Market Cultures Influence the Biggest Profit Driver in the Dealership

Work with hundreds of general managers having processed more than one million vehicles through their reconditioning departments proves a basic fact – you can’t improve what you can’t measure.  

* According to our 20 Group clients and moderator experts,
daily holding cost for the average dealership is $32 per vehicle per day based on franchise and market area.

If you still run your recon department on “gut feel” and not metrics, you’re losing money. Metrics — hard performance data — is the roadmap to moving hidden treasure in your recon department.

Manage recon by the facts and you’ll flow significant gross to your bottom line.  This article explains how >
