We’re heading to AM Live with a spring in our steps this November, because we’re not just going to be showing visitors to our stand how CustomerLounge makes everyone’s life more chilled, but we’ve also got some really impressive revenue stats to share.
The countdown is on — we can’t wait to chill out at this year’s AM Live!
Yes, you did read that right. We know what shows are like — lots of rushing around, meeting new people and trying to share loads of new information. A bit like a day in aftersales, in fact... So we figured we'd make our stand a place where you can go to take five — a black and pink oasis of calm, AKA stand P16, AKA the CustomerLounge.

EVHC or electronic vehicle health check is a well-known workshop tool for identifying work required on a vehicle and is widely used in the franchised sector. But latest figures show thousands of pounds of work is being overlooked because workshops are not using the check at every possibility.

Are you up to speed?
The aftersales industry is worth £99 billion* in the UK so it makes sense to invest the time to get your aftersales approach on point. But are you up to speed with the how the market is changing?
When it comes to your dealership I know you’re looking to drive engagement, revenue and ultimately retention, and service is where it all happens- that’s where the margin is. Take the diagram below for example, service allows you to make the margin profit, which drives customer loyalty and loyalty drives repeat sales. But for all this to happen customer experience is key.
