Reasons people choose Prontowash…
Less People Problems Eliminate employee payroll, as well as the associated taxes, workers comp, and dreaded “people problems” that come from in house staff. As an industry leader, our staff is professionally trained and each staff member is easily identifiable with appropriate uniforms. You are able to demand quality, on time work and ex- pect it to be done, as opposed to “negotiation” with di- rect employees & tip toeing around sensitive employee issues. Dealership talent such as the sales and service managers is not used up on non-productive, non-revenue produc- ing tasks that often involve dealing with issues in the de- tail department. Better Management Our management talent lives & breathes the detail/ reconditioning business every day, giving 100% of their time to running a successful, efficient business. Increased Capacity Cover Large Influxes You have the ability to instantly cover large influxes of cars due to build out arrivals, large auction purchases, or event sales. We have the ability to move staff between establishments based on demand and cover those times that you need extra hands on deck.

A Compelling Case To Outsource
There is a good chance you have viewed your “detailing department” as an unwelcome requirement to doing business. Vehicles are required to be prepped after arriving at the dealership, and a delivery prep is often required when a car is sold — new or pre-owned. Just a regular part of the business, right? Well, maybe not as regular as it used to be. Let’s take a closer look. Historically, dealerships would keep several staff on hand to do “make ready” services — whether the vehicles came off a truck, rail, taken as trade-in or came from auction. The preparation menu could range from removing protective plastic and pricing stickers, to full details, including clay barring and buffing. Costs of maintaining this dealer prep service are broader than most know. Below are some obvious and hidden costs:
- Employment costs: Recruiting, Advertising, FICA, FUTA, SUTA, Turnover
- Workers’ Compensation: Training, Safety, Insurance, Deductibles
- Garage & Liability Insurance: Deductibles, Premiums
- Chemicals & Supplies
- Management Oversight Requirement
Process to profits
Here’s how the used car preparation process works with Prontowash’s Dealership Management Software:
- Reconditioning technicians are assigned and dispatched work. Predefined service standards are en- tered into the Prontowash’s Dealership Management database.
- When a used car enters the reconditioning process, a Manager inspects each vehicle and uses either a handheld computer/scanner or cell phone to enter the car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and a few other pieces of information for each type of service.
- The Manager identifies work to be done and with a few clicks the system automatically sends work or- ders to the appropriate technicians.
- Prontowash automatically creates a work order and sends it to the dealership and required scheduled recon- ditioning departments who can access via any PC.
- As each stage in the process is completed technicians enter a “job complete” note into the computer, which then advances to the next repair task in the sequence and the cloud-based monitoring dashboard is updated.
