If your parts and inventory aren’t moving smoothly, your entire dealership can come to a standstill. That’s why a lot rests on a Parts Manager’s shoulders.
In any given day, a Parts Manager may need to:
- Run daily reports
- Review Special Order Requests from Service Department
- Review Order Statuses
- Check if parts are being received in a timely manner
- Check that parts are in the correct location
- Compare Profit and Cashflow against your budget
- Make sure that customer-facing areas of free of clutter
- Ensure fronting and facing is complete for all parts displays
- Check all used Work Order items are returned to the Parts department
- Replenish empty parts bins from overstock
- Check text message inbox to address any unanswered customer conversations
…and probably a whole bunch of other unexpected things.
