Our Workshop Solution
Inefficient Shop Loading: Service advisors face challenges with shop loading, leading to rushed jobs and incomplete multi-point inspections, which can result in missed service revenue and customer distrust.
Optimizing Shop Loading: Our workshops provide service advisors with strategies to manage shop loading efficiently, ensuring that each vehicle receives a thorough multi-point inspection. We even train on the proper MPI techniques to build trust with your customers!
Managing Customer Expectations: Setting and managing realistic service timelines and costs, often leading to customer dissatisfaction if expectations are not properly managed from the outset.
Mastering Expectation Management: Our sessions focus on developing transparent communication methods for discussing service timelines and costs, which helps in aligning customer expectations with the dealership's delivery capabilities.
Delivering Bad News: Relaying unexpected service needs or additional costs requires a delicate balance between transparency and empathy to maintain customer trust.
Navigating Difficult Conversations: We'll equip your service advisors with recognizing communication styles to convey information with right balance of honesty and sensitivity.
Resistance to Upselling: Encountering pushback when recommending additional services is common and causes advisors to become little more than order takers.
Effective Upselling Techniques: Advisors learn the art of upselling and communicating value effectively, to be seen as a trusted resource rather than a pushy salesperson.
