Dealer-FX’s Greg Dryden To Host NADA 2019 Workshop: Service Department Effectiveness for the 21st Century

See how dealership service departments can improve efficiency and customer experience while increasing retention and profitability.

Dealer-FX, a customer experience management provider for automotive OEMs and their retailers, announced it will be conducting an NADA Workshop focused on improving dealership service department effectiveness and efficiency at the NADA 2019 Convention & Expo in San Francisco, Jan. 24-27, 2019.

This informative in-depth workshop covers several actionable opportunities and educates dealers how to:

  1. Identify gaps in current service department processes such as missed appointments, lost service write-up revenue, declined services and lost parts sales.
  2. Calculate the impact on business caused by gaps and breakdowns in processes.
  3. Formulate a plan to address customer experience gaps while increasing throughput, capacity, parts, service revenue and service retention.
  4. Solve issues with parts specifying, driving better overall service department efficiency.
  5. Structure pay plans that drive the behaviors required to boost key performance metrics.
  6. Implement a plan to improve the experience at every touchpoint with the customer with goals of improving customer satisfaction, retention and brand loyalty/repurchase.

Objectives such as these only happen through actionable best practices, identified and discussed by an industry expert.

“Your service department is the foundation of the dealership,” said Greg Dryden, vice president of client optimization, Dealer-FX. “Understanding areas of opportunity in your service business is the first step toward improving processes, the customer experience and driving profitability.”
