Superior Inventory Management Keeps Repair Shops Humming

Posted by Mark Mackson on Oct 9, 2019 9:01:11 AM

With margins shrinking or even disappearing on vehicle sales, you need to find profit wherever you can to help your dealership thrive. One surprising spot to generate profits is in the small supplies your repair shops use.

Details matter to your bottom line. American Airlines famously saved tens of thousands of dollars by removing a single olive from its salads. Pennies add up quickly on “little” things like the crucial small consumable MRO products that keep body shops and repair shops running smoothly.

Kent Automotive knows this better than anybody. They supply the vital clips, nuts, bolts and other items you need to do OEM-quality repairs – and they do so with your profits in mind. Their systems are designed to help you make more money, work faster and be more efficient, and FLADCO’s pricing ensures the best cost-savings and ongoing price compliance.

Kent calls itself “Your Partner in Profitability,” and they have built proven systems to back that up. Their comprehensive product line is backed by tools designed to help your repair shop run more profitably:

  • Optimized Inventory Management ensures your inventory is meticulously organized and tracked, so the parts you need are always easy to find, and inventory is lean and constantly managed.
  • The PROS Profit Enhancement Tool is intuitive software that logs all required products for a job with barcode technology (no more lost revenue from overlooked “small” items) and integrates with estimating programs to create customizable invoices.
  • Comprehensive support in the form of technical expertise, complimentary in-shop training and continuing education courses with ASE certified trainers to make sure you’re getting the most from your employees.

See how they can improve your inventory processes and save you time and money by simplifying the ordering, organizing and management of your parts – all while adding to your bottom line.
