There are a bunch of them, but what you need to do is think about what operating system you want on it. Apple iOS? Then get an iPad. Android? then get an Android tablet with good hardware, like a Samsung Galaxy.

 

The majority of them are Android based. I would stay away from Blackberry Playbook, bad reviews and OS, and no updates until February. You can get Amazon's tablet, but I wouln't...it's a hacked version of Android. Wait a little bit if you like Android, until a tablet is released with ICS "Ice Cream Sandwich" Android version, optimized for Tablets.

 

You don't need to have a data plan with a tablet, just tether it with an app, like you said.

 

I would also wait until the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday...you should be able to pick a good one up between $250 - $350.

 

Keep an eye on this page as we get closer to Black friday, it will list the sale events for tablets... http://blackfriday.gottadeal.com/BlackFridaySales/Category/Tablets :D

Thanks for the info. What do you mean about the Amazon Kindle Fire being a hack job. I think you are right about waiting until Black Friday

 

About Amazon, I'm 1/2 joking but in reality they heavily modified Android to not resemble the typical Android operating system and tried to be unique. I believe the core is Android 2.3.5. With the Kindle Fire, you won't get your typical tablet apps or tablet experience. For one, the app market is not available.

      How do your service advisors close their sales with a customer? Are they pre-scheduling for future maintenance appointments? Brett Beachler’s business has a 40% close rate for pre-scheduled maintenance appointments. He discusses how to make your current customers, your future customers.  Grab a pen and paper or head to the show notes on this episode. You don’t want to miss Brett’s closing presentation that can be implemented in your business.
      Brett Beachler, Beachler’s Vehicle Care & Repair, Peoria, IL. Listen to Brett’s previous episodes HERE
      Key Talking Points
      Customer close procedure/presentation Try to understand what the other person sees and not just what your shop wants Factory specified maintenance review on cars- review the history on Carfax, review what the car needs according to the factory maintenance specifications. The system will actually calculate a date when it thinks you'll be due. Ask what are your plans on the car?  Is the car paid for? Review with the customer what your technicians did. Solidify them saying “You guys are my guy.” Lay the groundwork for them to say “You know what? You just gave me all the right reasons to make an appointment 4, 5, 6, 7 months in advance” Send a text to them about a week ahead  What you don't want to do- run the actual credit card amount and then try to explain it to the customer the factory maintenance and review etc.. As soon as they run that transaction, they're done.  You must direct your advisors the best way they will get the highest batting average for pre-scheduling. Don't start with a closed transaction.  If you don't capture them at that closed sale then the next thing is the email and the text, if we don't catch 'em there, then they call up three weeks later and say, “Hey, I just wanna schedule an oil change. And we go, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, you got all this factory maintenance dude. You wanna do it?”

      Motivation- based on relationship, culture, and attributes that empower them.  You must be profitable to have financial rewards Your business model needs to be sustainable, growable, and expandable based on labor- you need to be profitable in labor Performance-based pay: pure pay for what they produce, to hourly based with an incentive scale that gets them to $50 to $70 an hour. Interview- paid training, employment programs for career growth, ask about their dreams and their ‘why’ and plan their incentive pay You're not hiring a technician, you’re hiring for a career and lifestyle  Employees are looking for security and longevity  Bonuses: it’s the cherry on top, monthly/annual hours into training raises base hourly, ASE master raises base hourly, longevity bonuses for tenure, tool bonus based on hours or punctuality, consistency bonus: produced 50 hours or more for 2 to 5 weeks in a row earn up to another $5 an hour, leadership & personal development incentive: be a better version of themselves, Apprentice toolbox they get to keep after 5+ years, etc 74% labor GP on highest-paid tech- take 74%-100% = 26%, $40/.26= labor rate to be at 74% Modifying pay- what is the intent? Can it continue to change? Are there potential negatives by adding to the pay if something goes wrong in the pay plan? You can’t compromise and be a giver and taker.  Incentive plans don’t work if the employee doesn’t know how to track themselves. Teach your employees to watch themselves in the simplest way.  Give freedom- expand to quarter or every 6-month programs to take into account vacation, sick time, etc. Don’t make it a disincentive plan Critical sick time, health spending account, ‘pay the vacation,’ health benefits plan for families, team bonuses Your incentive plan should build your bench of technicians wanting to come work for you. One pay plan doesn't work for everyone. It also needs to be tied to your vision for the business.

      Before I started my auto repair shop, I worked for a Ford Dealer way back in the late 1970s, and my goal before leaving that dealership was to become an A-rated Master Tech. Their definition, at that time, was that a Tech had to be able to repair everything and anything from bumper to bumper.  Is that definition even possible? Can someone become proficient in every area of automotive service, repair, testing, and diagnosis? 
      About 10 years ago, I hired a technician that grew up in Greece. He was trained in one area of the automotive; Undercar. He was highly skilled in brakes, suspension, steering, wheel alignment, wheel balance, axles any issues or problems related to undercar. He was the best in his class, and I considered him an A-rated Master tech....in that area.
      With technology changing at light speed these days. Is it time for techs to specialize or narrow their scope of skills?

      Key Talking Points
      Finding, identifying, and connecting with the ideal customer and naming them (Jennifer and Clara)- what books are they reading? Who are they following on social media? What are their expectations?  Build out each phase of the customer experience process, and look at the highs and lows What parts of the process are easy and what parts are hard? Simplify that down as much as possible If something's not working, change it. It's that simple Hiring new employees- asked his current employees what they like about their job, then used their words on the job descriptions “Culture eats strategies for breakfast.” The average tenure of his current team is over 12 years
