As a growing number of shops develop written standard operating procedures (SOPs) to improve their business performance, Auto Data Labels is providing ready-made SOPs to help shops make the vehicle label replacement process smooth and profitable.
“SOPs and best practices help a business have predictable end results again and again,” Scott Saal, president of Auto Data Labels, said. “They enable you to work smarter instead of harder.”
The step-by-step process is spelled out in three 1-page SOPs: one for the estimator or parts manager ordering the replacement labels, one for the technician installing them, and one for the shop accounting or bookkeeping department.
Auto Data Labels said the SOPs will help prevent delays in receiving replacement labels by helping ensure, for example, that estimators or parts managers follow a consistent process to ensure all needed information is supplied with the order. The SOP makes it clear what type of photo of the label is needed, and how to avoid common mistakes when shooting and providing the photo to ensure a replacement label is provided back to the shop within 1 to 3 days.
The SOPs can be downloaded here (http://www.autodatalabels.com/replacement-label-sop.php) at no charge to be printed and provided to employees and added to the shop’s SOP manual.
