We all continue to strive for more efficiency in our businesses. Fewer mistakes, more profit, faster turnaround, it’s a never-ending quest.
From over 20 years of seeing shops, I can attest that it’s not the size or the equipment that makes for an organized or profitable business. It’s the people and the processes in that business that make it work like a well-oiled machine. I have seen many large shops with big equipment investments that lack simple software and processes that can boost the profitability of the company.
