IMPORTANCE OF JOB COSTING & THE CHALLENGES BODY SHOPS HAVE:

  • The challenge most body shops have is they cannot track or analyze their true cost of completing repairs and delivering it back to the customer.

  • Job costing is an extremely important part of everybody’s business.

  •  Job costing tracks the expenses for a job and then allows you to compare those expenses to the job’s revenue. This tells you which jobs are making money and which jobs are not.

In a recent survey, 75% of body independent contractors indicated that job costing was among their top concerns for their business. That’s not surprising, considering that successful job costing can mean the difference between a profitable business and one that struggles to stay alive.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SCHEDULING YOUR COSTUMERS:

Scheduling is the art of planning your parts and labor tasks activities so that you can achieve your customer’s  promise delivery date.  When it’s done effectively, it helps you:

  • Understand what you can realistically achieve with the number of repair days.

  • Make sure you have enough time for essential tasks.

  • Add contingency time for “the unexpected.”

  • Avoid taking on more than you can handle.

  • Work steadily toward your company goals.

  • Having enough time to adjust to unexpected supplements.

Time is the one resource that we can’t buy, but we often waste it or use it ineffectively. Scheduling helps you think about what you want to achieve in a day, week or month, and it keeps you on track to accomplish your goals.

EMPLOYEE TIME MANAGEMENT AND INCREASED ACCOUNTABILITY:

Time-tracking reinforces accountability within the employees themselves. When time-tracking is enforced, employees are more likely to complete jobs with increased efficiency and are more likely to hold themselves accountable for their progress throughout the repair orders. Time tracking software isn’t used to intimidate, but to reiterate the importance of the job at hand and the need for dedicated, hardworking and honest employees.
