With Reality Check and Heat Map, our clients will enjoy a more rapid and efficient deep-dive into their monthly composites.
Overland Park, Kansas (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
NCM Associates Inc. is launching its newest proprietary dealership operations analysis tools at NADA 2012, February 4-6 in Las Vegas. Reality Check (view video here: http://vidmails.com/p.php?s=995e4) is an at-a-glance summary of the entire operating composite report, focusing on from 50 to 57 key performance metrics and condensed into four succinct pages on the standard and online versions of all NCM automotive dealer 20 Group composites. Reality Check is comprised of a Charts section and a Grid section. The Charts section breaks down the opportunities by group member, and even further by departments for each member. The Grid section lists each performance metric, along with the page and line number where the detailed data may be found for a more productive review of the comprehensive composite report.
Dealership Heat Map (view video here: http://vidmails.com/p.php?s=9e87e) is designed as an online operations management dashboard tool in the form of a dealership blueprint. The blueprint changes colors according to each department’s monthly performance trends against NCM Benchmark averages. Depending on the trend of the shades, a dealer or general manager will be encouraged to click on a department, revealing a series of key performance indicator gauges. Each gauge allows the user to dig deeper into the operational trends for that key metric by way of the dealership’s web-based Profit Trend Analysis report, which reveals the dealership’s past 90-day performance against NCM Benchmark performers.
While a thorough review and understanding of the entire operating composite provides the most detailed view of a dealership operation as compared to group and franchise peers, it was clear to NCM that their clients needed a way to address their most critical operating deficiencies quickly. “With Reality Check and Heat Map, our clients will enjoy a more rapid and efficient deep-dive into their monthly composites,” said NCM President and CEO Paul A. Faletti, Jr (view video here: http://vidmails.com/p.php?s=c6561). “These tools will give them the ability to immediately spot areas of significant opportunity and to prioritize and take corrective actions as needed,” Faletti added.
