How to Reach Your Service Absorption Goals and Increase Profitability in a Few Easy Steps
Sponsored by OptionSoft
Date: October 06, 2020

Every dealership in North America strives to maintain service absorption rates of 85% or higher — yet only a handful of dealers hit the 3-digit level of absorption percentage.

A dealer’s performance and service employees compensation are largely measured by your service absorption rate; however, the average dealer fails to reach 60%. In fact, according to NADA, the average dealer hasn’t averaged over 60% service absorption in over a decade!

The solution is simple, right?
•    Sell more cars
•    Write more repair orders
•    Sell more service
•    Add more service bays
•    Hire more technicians
That all takes time, money, real estate — and good luck finding techs to hire.

This webinar will provide solutions for you to reach your service absorption goals while increasing profitability, CSI & customer retention in a few easy steps that do not require all the heavy lifting the industry experts tell us is necessary. It’s time to look at this consistent issue from another perspective and become one of the dealers who reaches the OEM benchmarks and your leadership’s goals.
