Below you can read much more about what we can offer. All MVP solutions are tailored to each customer - let us help you take your workshop to the next level. 

Benchmark Report

 

Gut feeling should never serve as the foundation for your decisions when deciding on the future of your company. Therefore, the first step of any MVP Development Plan is a benchmark report, gathering all necessary information about the performance of your company and your employees. Only by knowing where your weaknesses are, can we develop a plan for maximum improvements. 

Together we will uncover all aspects of your business:

  • What is the financial situation of your company?
  • How does the production in the workshop floor perform?
  • What is the status on administrative tasks and leadership in your company?

By comparing your data with the benchmark values of our database, we can dentify both your weaknesses and strengths, ultimately increasing your profitability by developing plans for improvement based on the analysis.

Running a LEAN business

The business of repairing cars are facing serious challenges, and many workshops are already having troubles making money. Prices are being lowered, autonomous cars will soon be a regular sight on the roads, causing less repairs to be done, at lower prices. As shops are increasingly coming under pressure, making the same amount of repairs at a lower cost, without compromising will be defining for the winners of the future. 

Implementing LEAN in your business means: 

  • Lower costs gained by more effective way of working.
  • Lower time spend on each repair, thus increasing the total amount of repairs each week.
  • The ability to continuously improve your workshop and identify ways of saving time and money.

In a business where prices are constantly lowered, the only way to stay in front is through effectiveness. LEAN gives that opportunity.

Technical Audit

The right tools are sometimes crucial for getting the best possible result, and that matters, no matter if your aim is increased profitability, shorter repair times or a higher quality of your repairs. The Technical Audit performs a detailed analysis of the paint or metal shops production area, and reviews all relevant areas such as the repair process, equipment used, work standards and evaluates the competencies of employees. The audit uncovers potential for improvements within:

  • Information about the latest-generation advanced repair processes to improve work methods.

Bodyshop Design and Layout

It's no surprise to anyone working in a workshop, that moving cars around the floor is a time-consuming process that generates no bill-able hours. Depending on the basic layout of the workshop, several hours can be saved each day, by optimizing how much, how far and how often cars needs to be moved around on the floor. We offer our customers:

  • Unique bodyshop layout designed specifically for your workshop, that optimizes your workday.
  • Graphic 3D representation of our design proposal for you to experience before rebuilding.
  • Use all the available work hours on repairments and increase the total number of billable hours. 

Simply put, optimizing the flow of vehicles, reduces wasted time, which otherwise represents a loss of time and money.
