SEASON 3 | EPISODE 4
Tim Devine has some advice for dealers — lost profit is preventable. On the surface, this is obvious. But as Tim digs into the issue, we see how much money dealers miss every day, from OEM incentives and rebates, to unnecessary spending and much more. Plus, he explains how you can recapture these funds to increase your bottom line.
