From advanced vehicle design to increased technology in customer interactions, the standard operating model for a modern auto service center has changed dramatically in recent years.

You will learn:

  • How technology has shifted the vehicle ownership experience for your customers
  • How the industry’s technological shift has impacted your business
  • How, why and when to make the investments that will push your operation forward
  • How to earn a true return on the investments you make
