Why Get Your Dealer Tool Room Organized

Our Tool Organization Service A-Team (Woody & Dawn) inventoried and organized the special service tools at Kriete Truck, LaCrosse, WI, which takes care of Volvo, Mack, Cummins and Hino.

Getting Organized-knowing what you have and where it is, is very important and this brief video tells us why. Lost tools means lost productivity and lost customers. It’s all about efficiency and taking care of the customer in a timely manner.

Transcript of Why Get Your Dealership Tool Room Organized Video

So, this ring compressor... two weeks, it set me back on a job. Had to go to Sheboygan and get it, brought it back over, did the job.

Took it back to Sheboygan. Two weeks later, we found another job. Sheboygan's got it. I didn't have time to go over there.

Went and borrowed it from another dealership... took me four days to get it and we had the tool the whole time, but didn't know where the hell it was.

[Woody Speaking] It was buried in the back of a cabinet that I went through.

Wow! That's going to save our production inefficiency.

Take a look at the completed organization of the tool room at Kriete Truck by Woody and Dawn:

​​​Getting Organized Can Affect Your Assets, Production and Profit

1. Customers appreciate it when a repair is completed quickly and properly (the first time). Having the special service tools organized and available to complete the repair makes this possible.

2. There is a tremendous increase in efficiency and productivity when special service tools can be found easily, used, and returned to their proper location. Technicians don’t waste valuable time searching, hunting for tools.

3. A typical dealership can have $200,000 or more in special service tools. That’s a lot of money invested into assets that cannot be used, if they cannot be found. Tool Organization Service provides a complete inventory of these assets. Tools: Find them. Use them. Know what you have.
