Still on Thursday, November 10, Hey will teach attendees how parts managers can staff the department appropriately, inventory strategies that will not only safeguard inventory but set dealers up for growth, and specific numbers companies need to look at on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. The session is titled “So, You’re Running a Parts Department” and will begin at 10:15 AM.

In her 2:00 PM super session titled Super Session: Running a Service Department While Maintaining Your Sanity,” Hey will give the tools to turn a dealer’s service department into a mean, lean, money-producing machine.
