Another Year Of The New Reality

Parts and Service have to perform.

I am struck by the French phrase “Plus de chose changent plus qu’il restent la meme chose” – which translates: The more things change, the more they remain the same.

In the five years from 2003 to 2007 there were 265,258 units sold in the main six categories […]

Temptations, Technology And Telematics

Continuing to do what you have always done is not an option.

Some of you know that I earned a mathematics and physics degree with minors in statistics and computer science. I put in all four so I could concentrate on computer science without getting laughed out of the room. You see, when I was in […]

Savvy Use of Technology: Your Silver Bullet for Building Customer Relationships

Thanks to innovative systems in our world of change, distributors have the opportunity to support machines and surprise customers with unprecedented service.

How Is Your New Reality?

After a year and a half, let’s have a quick review of the changes.

I still have scars from the “New Reality” exposure that I introduced in 2009. I talked about the need to adjust and change our business model – to drive a higher percentage of the business through parts and service. I am sure […]

The Future Is Here, But Are You In It?

Technology is now “helping” technicians, and factory-authorized dealers should be leading the charge in bench-marking efficiencies.

I recently viewed a show on YouTube from BMW showing a technician replacing a radiator core. Nothing very fancy, right? Well, this technician walks up to his tool box and puts on a pair of glasses. Makes adjustments and pushes […]

Training & Technology

They are the true “difference makers” in your new world.

In “this new reality” of debt, joblessness, anxiety, and concern, we have to make sure the people who make a difference for our customers are better equipped and trained than at any time in history. We have to give people opportunities to succeed in their work […]

That Was The Year That Was – Wasn’t It?

Every now and then it is good to kick a year out, not just welcome the new one in.

In the late ’70s there was a BBC show called TW3, “That Was The Week That Was.” It was a very tongue-in-cheek approach to the news of the day. It was hilarious. Looking back at the year […]

Technology & Performance

With affordable technology, almost anything is possible.

I’m struck by the stunning changes technology has brought to our lives, our jobs, and our society. When the early development of computers started, there were estimates the world would need five computers. Yes, that’s correct—five. There were similar statements that proved incorrect about the fax machine, instant messaging, […]

What Drives Good Customer Service

Attracting, developing, sustaining, and retaining customers is the key to profitability.

In the world of customer service, we seem to be saying one thing and doing something different. We don’t walk our talk. But we are not alone as a group of service providers who are interested in what our customers need and want. This has […]

Be Careful What You Ask For…You Just Might Get It!

How my complaints about support from technology companies might no longer be valid.

Many of you by now, I am sure, are aware how critical I have been of the Software Industry’s products and service offerings to our Industry. Well I might have to reevaluate some of my thinking soon. Whether it was in my education […]
