In addition to customer service, Bradley has also seen a vast improvement in the organization of his service department with G2’s Service Scheduler.

“We make it a point to have daily meetings each day and go over what everyone is doing and where they are at,” said James. “If anything needs to change, then everyone is aware. What really ties this communication together is the G2 Service Scheduler. The reports track what we’re working on today, what we have scheduled for the next days, weeks, months, what parts are on order, work orders that are on hold and so on. It’s a way of making sure we talk about our daily operations and don’t forget what we have going on.”

Bradley believes one of G2’s best assets is its advanced reporting capabilities. Having full visibility of entire dealership in real time helps him forecast trends and find new avenues for profitability.

“Everything from all departments is right there in front of you,” said Bradley. “You can see metrics in your parts department, metrics in your service department, metrics in your sales department and so on. With those reports, you can find opportunities to increase income. You can also compare history. As a dealer, you feel like you have a pretty good idea of what’s going on in your dealership, but G2’s reports spell out for you exactly what’s going on.”
