Fasteners and other shop supplies required for maintenance are often considered overhead. The PROS tool captures these items accurately — which can add up to thousands of dollars in untapped profits for service departments.
Dealer service departments can use PROS Profit Enhancement software to track and charge out all materials used in repair orders, eliminating waste and recovering the cost of all consumable supplies.
Kent’s latest PROS release adds robust profitability reporting capabilities to the cost recovery platform, the company said. The system’s Inventory Manager feature tracks on-hand inventory levels and usage, flags item minimums and provides real-time valuation. The cloud-based PROS Profit Enhancement and Inventory Manager Tool and mobile app are available at no charge to Kent Automotive customers.
