Performance Ford Attributes 150% Internal Labor Efficiency to Reconditioning Time-to-Line Software

It is surprisingly easy in any dealership for missed gross to hide in plain sight, said Rapid Recon founder and Chief Executive Officer Dennis McGinn.

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Performance Ford said today its internal service technicians are producing at 150% labor efficiency, thanks to their use of Rapid Recon, the auto industry’s standard in reconditioning workflow time-to-line automation.

"That's great for the technicians — and the dealership," said Denim Simkins, service director for the Bountiful, Utah, dealership. "Instead of technicians averaging eight or nine hours a day, they're now at 12-plus hours per day. That's an additional 20 or 30 hours a month per tech.”

He said the dealership now drives 150% Efficiency from internal technicians. "And with internal technicians able to push cars through faster, that efficiency means an average-days-in-recon rate of 4.4 days, so we sell more cars too. That's great for everyone here," Simkins said.

Performance Automotive Network is a family-owned business operating for more than 40 years. It is a Top-50 automotive dealership group in America and operates 18 franchised dealerships in Ohio and Utah.

Working with Rapid Recon’s recon experts, Simkins structured the software to flag the recon center’s parts department immediately when the dealership’s buyers had acquired a vehicle from auction or trade. Creating this parts-alert function is a simple step change in the software, but many dealerships underutilize its benefits.

Simkins, however, seized on the idea. Now Performance Ford’s parts department automatically gets a notification within Rapid Recon on desktop or mobile devices. Hence, maintenance and replacement parts that are common to all vehicles reconditioned are immediately pulled and are ready to be delivered to the technician stall.

Often, Simkins said, parts packages are prepared and waiting for these technicians, before notified about which cars they’re scheduled to work on next.

“Now techs are freed up to focus on the inspection and repairs,” Simkins said. “Eliminating the parts-waiting step has significantly improved team productivity, so they get more cars recon in less time.” The reconditioning center has two full-time used car technicians, an internal service writer, and part-time runners.

It is surprisingly easy in any dealership for missed gross to hide in plain sight, said Rapid Recon founder and Chief Executive Officer Dennis McGinn. Service managers who understand and manage these Key Performance Indicators (KPI) maintain tight control over service outcomes.

For vehicle reconditioning, the two most meaningful KPIs are:

• Time to Line (T2L) — This is the measure of efficiency from vehicle acquisition through reconditioning to final sale-ready status.

• Average Days in Retail (ADR) — ADR measures the reconditioning steps the department can control, and it is affected by everyone who “touches” the vehicle —¬ from recon system login through final photos.

Using T2L to manage a recon department (and, by relationship, the parts department) makes everyone who touches cars either a contributor or detractor to T2L.

“We got everyone to buy into this time-to-line culture, from GM to vendors,” he said. “They all know we grade performance and hold them accountable to the metrics we’ve set for ADR and T2L. We strongly reinforce that if we’re going to sell used cars within 14 days from when they hit the inventory, everybody’s got to be in sync. Rapid Recon is the tool that helps us do that.”

About Rapid Recon
Reconditioning workflow automation from Rapid Recon is the industry standard in time-to-line inventory turn and speed-to-sale vehicle revenue enhancement for automotive retailers. Benchmarking data based on 13 million vehicles processed uniquely positions Rapid Recon to advise dealers on how to improve their store’s profitability.

LAX Workers Mark the Start of the Normally Busy 4th of July Holiday by Calling on Airlines to Value Lives Over Profits

Airport workers take large car caravan to United Airlines to demand enforcement of PPE, social distancing, and safe staffing to stop the spread of Coronavirus

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the country pushes for a return to normal, LAX workers have a stark warning for travelers: airlines are not taking all of the precautions necessary to protect workers and passengers. Cabin cleaners, janitors, baggage handlers, wheelchair attendants, airline catering workers and concession workers are speaking out about the necessity for stronger enforcement on PPE, social distancing, and safe staffing to stop the spread of coronavirus at the airport.

Airline workers have been speaking out about problems at the airport as positive cases continue to grow among LAX workers. Janitors at LAX report that their employers still are not providing them with proper Personal Protective Equipment even while social distancing remains impossible on the job. Cabin cleaners report being ordered onto planes before passengers deplane. Cabin cleaners also report still being asked to do “quick turns” where planes are cleaned in under ten minutes and almost no disinfecting is done between flights. Many of the issues reported by workers are in direct violation of CDC guidelines. People are going to work scared and are demanding that airlines do something about it.

Service workers at the airport are primarily people of color and immigrants who have spoken out and won better wages through their unions, SEIU and UNITE HERE. These same communities are also being hardest hit by the pandemic. The report “Essential But Vulnerable: California Airport Workers in Crisis” details the ways that the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 are not being felt equally, due to existing racial and socioeconomic inequalities. View and Download the Report: https://bit.ly/EssentialButVulnerable.

Service Workers at LAX are driving in a caravan around the airport today calling on airlines like United and Southwest to take responsibility for the health and safety of passengers and contracted airline workers. They are demanding that the airport administration do whatever it takes to ensure companies operating at the airport adhere to necessary safety precautions.
Airport service workers will drive a protest caravan from Watts, ground zero in the movement for police brutality, to show support for the growing movement for Black Lives Matter and then proceed up century Boulevard to LAX, circling the terminals, passing LAWA headquarters and ending at United Airlines Cargo. They will deliver bread and roses which have come to signify dignified working conditions in the labor movement.

Who: Over 100 airport workers including union members from UNITE HERE and SEIU-USWW.

What: Workers will gather at Ted Watkins Park at 10:15 am to decorate their cars and prepare for the caravan. LAX workers will be available to interview at the park until 10:45 before the caravan starts. LAX workers will also be available for interview by phone throughout the day.

When: Wednesday, July 1st at 10:15 am

Where: Ted Watkins Park on the Corner of Century Blvd. and Central Ave., Los Angeles

SEIU United Service Workers West represents more than 45,000 janitors, security officers, airport service workers, and other property service workers across California.

New University Pilot Study Attracts More Students and Enrolls them Faster Using Concourse Technology

A new pilot allowing universities from around the world to make offers to students via a Global Clearing event conducted using Concourse technology.

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In less than a week, universities from around the world were able to find, research, chat with, and make offers to students during the first Global Clearing event conducted 100% online using proprietary Concourse technology.

Students and their high school counselors uploaded verified records to Concourse, then universities were able to make direct admission and scholarship offers on the easy-to-use online platform.

180 admission offers were made by 17 universities in 5 countries, including over USD $1.5 million in scholarships. The uptake rate was 19%, much higher than the industry average.

Creating a New Normal for 2020 Enrollment and Beyond

The coronavirus pandemic has turned international university admissions upside down, with travel restrictions, delayed visas, and stay at home orders. University World News reports “There are currently doubts about whether some special international programs and exchanges will be able to go ahead in the autumn if restrictions and delays due to COVID-19 persist.”

Concourse Global Clearing provides the answer, with university-friendly benefits including:

– Fast, efficient way to find students for changing enrollment situations
– Easy-to-use, student-friendly virtual admission and offer process
– Expanded lists of certified profiles for more diverse student bodies
– Build and strengthen relationships with counselors around the world

In the U.S., The University of Alabama was a pilot participant in the Global Clearing initiative. Shelley Moss, Assistant Director of International Admissions said, "The University of Alabama believes in giving students from all around the world fair access to admission to our great institution.” Concourse and Grok Global Services share that perspective, and worked with The University of Alabama to put belief into action. Global Clearing enabled The University of Alabama to reach students who had never considered them before.

“We not only engaged with students via Global Clearing but also found ourselves building long term relationships with the participating high schools." She characterized the admissions workflow as simple and said, “We're excited to continue participating."

Simplifying Processes and Improving Results

High school students participating in Global Clearing are pursued by universities with pre-emptive offers and scholarships. This eliminates the onerous, time-consuming need to submit multiple one-off applications. “Universities are so used to students sending them applications. Now Global Clearing is flipping that,” says Misco Mungai, Post School Success Manager at Nova Pioneer in Kenya. “I want this to become the new normal.”

“The Global Clearing project has been so inspiring,” reports Ermek Esenaliev, High School Coordinator at the Silk Road International School in Kyrgyzstan. “In the past few days, my students have received more offers than since the beginning of the academic year.”

NTLA Releases Research Showing 6.4 Million Americans Did Not Pay Their Property Taxes in 2019

NTLA Foundation

Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Dir. & Founder, NTLA Foundation

Unpaid property tax bills left America’s cities and counties with a financial shortfall of more than $15.7 billion

Nobody wants higher taxes with this new economy… Delinquent taxpayers generally have 2-3 years to pay which over 99% of them eventually do without facing losing their properties.”

— Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Director & NTLA Foundation Founder

JUPITER, FL, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Tax Lien Association (NTLA), the #1 educator and non-profit tax sale trade association, recently released research that shows how many property owners failed to pay their taxes on time; additionally, how much each US state is owed from the non-payment of property taxes. The report release in June 2020 does not take into account a predicted 30% increase in delinquent taxpayers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The data, aggregated by Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Director and Founder of the NTLA Foundation, demonstrates the ill effects of what a $15 billion budget deficit creates on local governments if no mechanism existed to collect these delinquent taxes. With $15 billion dollars, America could build 333 new high schools or pay 300,000 more high school teachers’ salaries!

Currently, 30 US states sell tax certificates to the private sector, in 2019 alone, over $4.3 billion of lost revenue was recouped to fill local government budgets. These funds go directly to fund public schools, emergency services, etc. More cash-strapped states and local governments will turn to tax sales to avoid defaulting on their obligations or cutting school funding.

“The NTLA has a responsibility to report on the ramifications and imminent repercussions that will occur in 2020-2021 as a result of the current social and economic issues the United States faces from COVID-19,” said Westover. “This report will establish the ‘pre-COVID’ baseline by which the economic hardship of the Coronavirus will be measured against for years to come. Next year will likely reach a historic high in America of $20.5 billion in unpaid property taxes.”

“The good news for the 30 states that do sell delinquent taxes is that they have an effective tool to recoup lost revenue without raising taxes,” continued Westover. “Nobody wants higher taxes with this new economy—and the icing on the cake is delinquent taxpayers generally have 2-3 years to pay which over 99% of them eventually do without facing losing their properties.”

“If there ever was a win-win solution with the private sector and public sector working together, this is it!” remarked Ted Doman, NTLA President. “Governments have funds to operate and investors lend money for a time for delinquent taxpayers to recover.”

One Dollar for Life Announces Latest School Playground Project in Kenya

One Dollar For Life (ODFL) promotes Effective Altruism by building small-scale, high impact projects in the developing world. Visit us at at https://odfl.org/!

These children from the Maasai community in Tanzania are enjoying their first ever playground!

Students to enjoy first on-campus playground

Something as simple as a classroom and a playground can raise the educational trajectory of an entire community, creating an effect that endures for generations.”

— Robert Freeman, Founder & CEO of ODFL

LIVERMORE, CA, USA, June 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — One Dollar For Life (ODFL), the local nonprofit founded over a decade ago by a former high school teacher to bring small-scale — but high-impact — infrastructure projects to developing nations, has just announced its latest venture: a sturdy new playground to complement its newest classroom construction in Kenya.

This latest addition to the Shining Star School in Nyeri, Kenya, is not just any playground, although it will feature equipment familiar to any American school child — swings, teeter-totters, climbing bars, and slides.

This playground, however, was designed to support Kenya’s new Competence-Based Curriculum, which emphasizes the importance of space for movement and playing, in addition to the standard academic fare of reading, writing, and arithmetic.

The playground is crafted of heavy-duty industrial materials. Like the ODFL classrooms they adjoin, the equipment was designed withstand the test of time and vigorous use.

Having a safe, focused area to play helps children develop their gross motor skills and amplifies the efficiency of work in the classroom. The entire cost of the Shining Star School playground has been underwritten by Juan Pablo Mariscal of Planet LLC.

The new classroom and playground for Shining Star School is one of more than 130 such projects ODFL has completed around the globe. “Our mission is to dramatically improve the capacity for self-development in the developing world,” says ODFL Founder and Executive Director Robert Freeman.

“Something as simple as a classroom and a playground can raise the educational trajectory of an entire community, creating an effect that endures for generations,” said Freeman.

For more information about ODFL and its efforts to promote effective altruism, please visit odfl.org.

About One Dollar For Life: ODFL promotes Effective Altruism by building small-scale, high impact projects in the developing world. These include classrooms, medical clinics, water systems, science labs, playgrounds and other projects that improve life chances for some of the poorest people in the world. 100% of every dollar donated to ODFL goes to the donor’s intended project.
