      Typically, when productivity suffers, the shop owner or manager directs their attention to the technicians. Are they doing all they can do to maintain high billable hours? Are they as efficient as they can be?  Is there time being wasted throughout the technician’s day? 
      All these reasons factor into production problems, but before we point fingers at the technicians, let’s consider a few other factors.
      Are estimates being written properly? Are labor testing and inspections being billed out correctly? Are you charging enough for testing and inspecting, especially for highly specialized electrical, on-board computer issues, and other complex drivability work?  Is there a clear workflow process everyone follows that details every step from the write-up to vehicle delivery? Do you track comebacks, and is that affecting production?  Is the shop layout not conducive to high production? For example, is it unorganized, where shop tools, technical information, and equipment are not easily accessible to every technician?  Are you charging the correct labor rate and allowing for variables such as rust, vehicle age, and the fact that most labor guides are wrong? Also, is there effective communication between the tech and the service advisor to ensure that extra labor time is accounted for and billed to the customer? These are a few of the top reasons for low productivity problems. There are others, but the main point is to look at the entire operation. Productivity is a team effort.  Blaming the techs or other staff members does not get to the root cause in most cases.
      Maintaining adequate production levels is the responsibility of management to create the processes that will lead to high production while holding everyone accountable.

      Should you use coupons in your marketing strategy? Will they bring you more clients? What type of client are you trying to attract? Are you good at converting “coupon customers” into lifelong customers? If you do use coupons, what are some promotions you can do? Can coupons be successful with high-end clients? If you don’t want to do discounts but do want to run promotions, what are some ideas?

      On Record with Greg Buckley. Greg discusses extended car warranties. You must educate your customer!
      Greg Buckley, owner of Buckley’s Auto Care in Wilmington, and Millsboro DE.  Greg’s previous episodes HERE.
      Show Notes:  
      Extended warranty- used car market has been hot over the last few years. People want a ‘protection’ What types of companies underwrite policies?  You must educate the customer on what they already purchased for their vehicle- most contracts are limited  Ask for a copy of the contract, review it, look for ‘what’s not covered,’ and explain to customer. Additional testing time? Labor? Rust?  “Do your own warranty” before you fall into the marketing funnel of extended warranties  Are these customers one and done? Only repairing what is covered and not doing proper maintenance.  Better margins with OE for warranty claims You must have oil change records- regular service receipts
