This is easy.
Plan a meeting
The first step towards 100% productivity is planning the Assessment of your current IT Topology. Thousands of IT companies are willing to do everything for you by plugging in a flash drive and using a Word Document template to show your vulnerabilities and bill you. The Flash and Bill methodology will not help you in the future. When you have a critical problem, you will be forced to use the same Flash and Bill company at their financial mercy.
Understanding your current situation should not take much time or a professional translator for all the terminology. As dealership professionals, we can get to the bottom line quickly by asking departmental questions and a rough overlay of the dealership. Each department has time-honored positions that paint the picture quickly.
The Assessment is the creation of a few simple lists. These lists help you visually see how your system is running on where improvements can be made. There are obvious issues that each IT or Office Manager is fully mindful of and would like a few solutions to. Use our network of IT nerds to find answers.
The design of Dealernerd's self-assessment is not to expose weakness to be sold. It is a platform to manage your dealership IT and safely ask questions without fear of exploitation.
