      It’s easy to hire someone and say ‘go run a few ads now and then.’ But that doesn’t cut it anymore. You need digital technology. One of the misconceptions about BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY products is that they’re hard to use, but if you can use a cell phone, you can use this.
      Learn how technology can address and solve some of the issues that your shop faces as far as visibility, car count, and employee retention. Tim Cifelli, Chief Revenue Officer at BOLT ON, joins the Wrench Way podcast to talk through some of the most common challenges that shop owners face and what they can do about them while adding value.

      In our previous episode, David & Lucas were joined by Jim Cokonis, a Senior Curriculum Developer at Carquest Technical Institute. 
      We discussed the principles behind six sigma and the Toyota way and we found the conversation to be one of the most important we’ve ever had on the podcast. 
      Typically the second portion of the conversation is reserved for All-Access Patrons, but some of the things Jim had to say were too important to keep from everyone. 

      If you haven’t listened to episode 14, stop and listen to that first, then come back to this episode for the second half.
