RECON EDGE, a Unique Service to Push Recon Performance Beyond Limits

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A personal fitness trainer is the solution for the gym. RECON EDGE from Rapid Recon is the answer for solving recon performance and margin compression humps that erode used car profitability.

RECON EDGE is an exceptional one-on-one master-level performance efficiency troubleshooting service for auto dealers using Rapid Recon reconditioning workflow software to ensure continuous improvement in their operation.

Rapid Recon is a robust tool that by itself gets used cars sale-ready in days rather than weeks. As a remarkably beneficial auto dealership software reconditioning tool, it also reveals workflow, time efficiency, and profit drains that often still lurk within a used car operation.

For instance, analyzing technician workflow and payroll, a RECON EDGE troubleshooter solved a $6,700 a month payroll loss attributed to unapplied labor efficiency. A troubleshooter investigating why a dealer had hit a performance plateau in its time-to-line efficiency identified poor workflow in detailing as the reason. Applied recommendations dropped detail time per vehicle to 1.2 days from 3.3, making cars sell-ready faster.

RECON EDGE troubleshooters know dealers’ pains, understand their challenges – and excel at resolving past performance and efficiency humps. RECON EDGE experts offer years of experience running and working in dealership fixed or variable operations.

First by telephone and then during a visit to your shop floor, RECON EDGE troubleshooters dig in: 

  • Examining challenges brought up during dealers’ routine Rapid Recon performance reviews
  • Visiting the recon program in person to meet with the dealership’s decision-makers and view the recon department’s communications, process, practices, and people
  • Identifying performance and workflow issues to isolate inefficiencies in current processes, practices, and goals/objectives
  • Determining profitability buried in inefficient, ignored or maladapted processes and practices — comparing the performance figures to realistic optimized numbers that the dealership’s team can attain

RECON EDGE solves:

  • Shop time inefficiencies
  • Time-to-Line sale-ready delays
