Resource Automotive debuts a new system, VIP Total Dealership Solutions, intended to enhance dealership profitability.

It's billed as a first-of-its-kind integrated process-improvement program designed to deliver enhanced operating efficiencies throughout the entire dealership organization.

VIP Total Dealership Solutions draws on Resource's dealer services of training, consulting and products. It provides a three-phase holistic approach to dealership profit improvement.

Phase one consists of an operations assessment from a process and financial standpoint. Second is the creation of a unique and proprietary VIP solution. The final step is plan implementation, utilizing Resource's team of automotive professionals.

“These are challenging times for even the best operators,” says Mark Mishler, president of Resource Automotive, a unit of The Warranty Group, the world's premier provider of extended service plans.

“We created VIP Total Dealership Solutions to drive our clients to the next level of profitability, regardless of market conditions,” he says. “VIP delivers more in variable and fixed operations than any single product or program and provides a clear strategy for consistent and measurable improvement.”

VIP is available in North America first, with impending rollouts planned for Europe, Asia and Latin America.
