Don’t you wish you had a secret weapon for used car reconditioning? You know, a switch or tool you could turn on and all your used car reconditioning process issues would vanish into thin air. That would be a dream come true, but you are in a dream if you think a tool is the answer to your used car reconditioning process nightmare’s.
In the past couple of years, the biggest buzz word in the automotive industry is “days in recon.” The used car reconditioning process is so important to a dealerships bottom line it has attracted some of the biggest technology companies in the automotive industry-like Hugh Hathcock’s Recon Velocity and vAuto’s iRecon. While these software tools are great for identifying bottle neck issues, defining used car reconditioning processes, and accountability they are still just tools and only as good as the people that use them. The human element is still the biggest obstacle in your used car reconditioning process.
