PALO ALTO, CA, October 17, 2016 – Rapid Recon, the undisputed leader in time-to-market reconditioning workflow software for auto dealerships, announced today the release of its new average-days-in-recon graphical Performance Reporting by Dealership tool.
Performance Reporting by Dealership is the ideal management tool for the general manager because it provides a new week-to-week benchmarking tool for reconditioning. Every dealership can deliver an average recon time in the 3-to-5-day range, but without accurate metrics, there is too much room for inefficient processes and avoiding accountability.
“This report provides hands-on-the-wheel management for GMs and their recon managers – and with its mobile readiness across all platforms delivers this insight whether they’re at the dealership, at home or a game,” says Rapid Recon CEO Dennis McGinn.
Performance Reporting by Dealership shows: daily and weekly employee activity metrics, step-completion times, holding costs, and time-to-market – all critical data to help dealers reduce recon cycle time to three days. Longer cycles erode used car gross profit, McGinn points out.
Using both dynamic graphical color-coded dashboard gauges to compare week-to-week performance and graphs, Performance Reporting by Dealership enables dealership management to see quickly, clearly and precisely how recon is operating toward a three-day recon time-to-market goal.
This new Rapid Recon Performance Report also provides comparison stats with a dealer group or against industry best practices.
With Rapid Recon mobile, the staff manages recon on the fly. Next-step notification is now easily communicated to recon teammates, so work moves forward smoothly with everyone in the know. Notes are added easily. With Rapid Recon mobile, staff responsible for reconditioning and used cars will know exactly where each vehicle is in the recon process and how long before it reaches frontline readiness.
“By streamlining recon communications Rapid Recon mobile and Performance Reports by Dealership dramatically lower confusion and uncertainty which, in turn, help reduce recon cycle time and make everyone more productive,” McGinn says.
