Best Practice Workshops

  • ASE workshops are valued by dealers as an independent source of support separate from the manufacturer
  • The agenda of each workshop is unique and highly relevant as it is driven by the specific KPI's of each of the attendee dealers
  • New contacts and relationships between attendees ensure that knowledge is shared on an ongoing basis
  • Process improvements and practical ideas to improve profitability across all departments is the workshop focus, not fixing prices and margins across the wider network
  • The independent nature of the workshop facilitates the sharing of best practice to sell more cars, parts and hours, rather than a forum to discuss other franchise issues

Also referred to as 'Profit Clinics', these 'open' sessions take the full composite information for a group of dealers and compare their performance against each other, and industry averages. ASE conduct private bespoke workshops for franchises and larger dealer groups, which are highly regarded within the industry. These sessions have been running for over 20 years and are a constant source of fresh ideas and initiatives that dealers can implement in their business.

Best Practice Workshops in action

Toyota Center, Ryazan, Russia

During the Clinic not only prepared practices were discussed, but all the participants very openly discussed other issues, shared ideas and found out ways the others solve similar problems. As a result of the Clinic, Toyota Ryazan has implemented an electricity saving approach, which has given us 26% electricity cost decrease (approx. 125k Rub)
