    • we recently received a quote for a Penntek application at $15 SF which is way out of our price range. Looked like a nice product though.
    • We don't do any price matching as most of the customers that are shopping for price only, are not what we want. We strive for regular customers that will return for more services, not just a one time deal. We want the relationship, not just the sale. 
    • Just a quick update for this month: We have now had three solid months of ARO exceeding $750 (credit card transactions).  Which usually means, this wasn't an accident.  Our business is reacting to the changes we built into it. As for CAR, we had some minor program fixes and recently added a feature to help you get your customer back in the door. Our system has always allowed you to input Registration and Insurance expiration dates.  This system would send the customers reminders to renew their documents and it would notify you, upon check-in, if they were expired.  With the recent addition of Inspection Expiration, we have a feature built in that will allow you to search for expiration coming up and connect with that customer to just say "Hi ABC Customer, friendly reminder about your insurance and/or registration" or if your state warrants... "Hi, ABC customer.  We noticed your inspection is coming up.  Would you like to schedule your state or DOT inspection today?"   As our product closely resembles a fully formed management system at this point, we are working with subscribers to build features to help them each tackle specific problems they are facing.  We have some interesting surprises planned for the first half of 2020, where we were given exclusive access to certain systems in addition to problem solving features you just won't find anywhere else.   We look forward to continually building within the community and even expanding across other areas of this industry.   As this may be our last update for the calendar year, we thank everyone who gave us an opportunity and the forum for allowing us to have open conversations about what we are doing to transform businesses and customer relationships.  We are excited about what 2020 will bring and look forward to sharing it with you.   Hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season.
    • Pretty sure they spoke about 2020 releases on their new line, but don't recall what quarter.
    • I just released this video about how to get more customers for your shop in 2020. Let’s face it - the market is changing. On this video, I reveal the 3 Most Important Strategies we’re focusing on for 2020. You can watch it here. But wait... there's more! 😉 But here’s what happened. I had conversations with shop owners after releasing that video. After talking to them, they told that what I didn’t say was really more important than what I did say! So I decided I would reveal that - but only to serious shop owners.  All you need to do is text the work “hello” to 716-402-5998. That will get you an invitation to Car Count Hackers Elite - I share shot bits of information with serious shop owners who want to earn the money you know you deserve. Hope this helps!
