According to O’Neill, auto dealers today know there is opportunity in the service lane, but just don’t know where to start. “Whether the starting point is process, procedure, or software, this session will give dealers real world tools to take back and successfully implement immediately to generate additional sales and profitability directly out of their service lane efforts,” O’Neill stated.

Attendees will learn:

• How to start a service lane sales process from scratch.

• How to utilize the sales talent that they have right now, and generate immediate results.

• How to “change and engage” from a sales pitch to a value proposition

O’Neill’s second session,Data Driven Decisions, Data Driven Sales. The Future of Big Data Marketing is here, and it’s Not Going Anywhere,” will be held Tuesday, October 6, at 1:30 pm, presented in partnership with Dave Page, current owner and director of Dealer E Process, an award-winning website solutions company out of Chicago.

Big Data has been a recent catchphrase in the automotive industry. This session will show dealers how to use Big Data, but also how Big Data is transforming the way auto dealers market, sell and operate on a daily basis.

Attendees will learn:

• How utilizing Big Data today can make a dealership the dominant player in its PMA.
• That there is no secret sauce to understanding customers, the real story lies within the data.
• How dealerships can leverage big data to project sales and profitability to the unit, and the penny.
