We hope your year was filled with many successes! It sure has been a busy year for all!

This year, we had two very successful workshops presented by Chuck Hartle, President of PartsEdge. The first was in Phoenix, Arizona and the other was in Minneapolis, Minnesota. These workshops were 2.5 days of training and were geared toward advanced analysis and planning tools for parts operations. Chuck’s goal is always to help Dealerships create best practices to help improve inventory control and profitability, a goal we aim for with all of our PartsEdge clients. Read more about each workshop and testimonials here and here.

According to Chuck, most Dealers don’t know just how much industry changes have exposed their parts business to vulnerabilities. We see so many changes on the horizon, especially with manufacturer programs, and have heard that sometime after the first of the year Hyundai Dealerships will be moving from Smartstock to Partseye. We also learned Ford is going to be adding a program that is very similar to the RIM program that General Motors uses.

With changes this big, there can be an overwhelming amount of guidelines and rules to learn. The best thing you can do as a Dealer is to try and stay ahead of changes and continue to educate yourself.

Dealersedge will be hosting another 2.5 day workshop for us, coming up February 12th, 13th and 14th in Orlando, FL. To learn more about the workshop watch the video below. Click here for more information about the course outline and to register online!
