In the retail Motor Industry relying on vehicle sales as the profit engine of the business is unreliable. Sales are affected by many factors outside of the Manager’s control; economic conditions, the availability of credit, inflation, increased taxation and manufacturer incentives.   With annual new vehicle sales creeping back to a sub 100,000 vehicle market, Owner Managers and Dealer Principals cannot afford to miss a single sales opportunity, be it in the Sales, the Service or the Parts department.
