Dealership operations are facing new challenges in the face of uncertainty. All industries will be impacted—either immediately or eventually—in 2020 by new Social Distancing guidelines and new operating models. Yet, the automotive industry has faced challenges in the past and will weather this storm, too. With access to super-fast technology, insights like data analytics and cloud-based technology, integrated solutions, and the flexibility for employees (and buyers) to telecommute, dealers are now reshaping operations and procedures. Here are five tools to help drive operational efficiency while your team navigates these changes:
