We want our clients to be happy and achieve their dreams. These are usually different
for everyone and at ATI we understand those differences.
If you are in an aggressive posture, our goal is to tweak
your profit margins so you keep at least 62 cents for every service dollar you bill out. We will work with you on your car
count until you have enough work so your technicians can bill out an hour for every hour they are on the floor. We will
help your Service Manager increase sales to a target goal of $350.00 average per repair order or over $20,000 in sales
per bay per month. By the way, we have some clients at $35,000 per bay per month. A stellar auto repair shop should
have a net profit of 20 to 30 percent if it follows our model.
If you're losing customers to competitors, we will survey your customers to determine
what the real problem is and help you correct it. Our accounting staff can get involved in shrinkage and tax issues.
We can test your Service Manager's personality to determine his strengths and weaknesses, enabling you to
motivate the most important person your customers interact with.
If you simply want to spend more time with family and friends, go
fishing, golfing, hunting or whatever floats your boat, our goal is simple: Increase profits to hire
a talented, motivated Service Manager, or cultivate the one they have. Then, the owner can concentrate on
the business as a whole, not be a strategic part of production!
Recently, many baby boomer shop owners have been focusing on when and how
they're going to retire. Most of the better technicians are of the same age. They are not going to buy out the business
because they want to retire as well. Retiring requires a very profitable operation to contribute a generous amount,
annually, to a variety of retirement investment techniques. Most clients, who depend on renting or selling their real
estate to finance their retirement, are extremely disappointed in the actual value of their investment when it comes
time to quit.
If you work extremely hard to stay the best in your market, we can help keep your customers
telling positive stories about how great their quality service has
been. We help them stay on the cutting edge of technology, leadership and profits. Quite often, a 32-hour Shop
Owner's Workshop is the perfect tune up for even the most successful and passionate leaders.
No matter what type of shop owner you are at this point in your life, we understand
We plead with you to focus on the violent changes occurring in our industry right now. In my 35 years, I have
never seen a greater need to sharpen your management skills. Recently, we've witnessed a lot of shops around the
US where the owners are working harder yet making less money. Managed properly, even today, the repair business
can give you a life, not take it away.
Join me at one of our 200+ workshops held each year all over North America and I'll help you get
what you want out of your business.
