Empowering Your People to Do More
If you’re a furniture dealer, there’s a good news-bad news aspect to what you’re doing right now. The good news is that with all the challenges we’ve had to face from the pandemic and a market that has been pretty much in free fall for the past year, getting much of anything done is an impressive achievement just in and of itself.
The bad news though, and it’s nothing you want to hear, is that what you’re doing today, even if it doesn’t feel like it, probably represents the least amount of work you and your team will have to face, at least over the next 12-24 months.
We’re seeing more and more signs of business starting to move back towards some kind of normal and even though that new normal will clearly be different in some significant ways, one thing is certain: sooner or later—and most likely sooner rather than later—all the pent up demand of the past year or so is going to be released with an intensity that none of us can predict.
That’s why it’s so very important that you start putting in place today a program that will empower all your people to do more for your dealership that just move data from Point A to Point B.
Right now, far too many dealers are paying people to perform mundane, repetitive tasks that their computers can do more efficiently, more accurately and more economically.
With depressingly few exceptions, there’s far too much human intervention at most dealerships when it comes to routine activities such as processing accounts payable, purchase order receiving and order acknowledgements.
And as the recovery gets closer, the downside of all that—basically doing things at your dealership today because that’s how you’ve always done them—becomes more and more of a threat.
It doesn’t have to be that way!
At Avanto, we’ve got the resources to get all those mundane, repetitive and yes, profit-sapping tasks off your people’s desks and enable them instead to manage by exception and focus far more time and energy on areas that are truly mission-critical.
No two dealerships, of course, are the same and no single, magic-bullet solution will solve everybody’s problems. But by combining Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and outsourcing and cutting back on excessive reliance on email to handle routine, repetitive functions, you can bring a new level of productivity to your dealership and position it to take full advantage of the recovery that’s coming.
So what are you waiting for?
Most of the people I talk to in dealerships today are already stretched thin just by trying to cover everything they’ve got on their desk right now. As the rebound gets underway, things are only going to get worse.
That’s why it’s so important that you start doing something about plugging the profit leaks in your dealership today. Before it really starts to hurt!
We work with many different industries, helping them navigate the digital transformation process. Reach out to us and see how Avanto can save your company time and money.
