Increase ROI and Sales!

Unused parts inventory is costing you money


Confident in the Invested Parts Inventory Control Training and the ROI it will deliver, ADMI is offering Ford of Canada Dealers an initial inventory analysis and consultation session to highlight opportunities to improve your inventory performance.

A study of Dealers across Canada showed that, on average, almost 20% of dealership stock parts inventory was idle – not sold often enough to justify the investment.
That's up to 1 out of every 5 dollars in parts inventory wasted.

Further study showed that more than 75% of the idle inventory could not be returned to Ford under Purchase Obsolescence Protection Plan (POPP) Rules.

To help you increase ROI on your stocking parts inventory, Ford of Canada is partnering with Automotive Dealer Management, Inc. (ADMI) – the pre-eminent inventory control management firm worldwide – to offer concentrated inventory control training customized for your dealership's inventory needs.

Dealer Testimonials

  • The service is unbeatable because you understand Ford and my DMS.
  • The sessions are in the language of a Parts Manager (Steve always takes a ton away from the meetings).
  • The systematic approach to revising our stocking criteria allows for parts department buy-in.
"I believe your service is an unbelievable value."
--- Sean Bell, General Manager

"I've only been with the program for a few months but the results are already starting to show. My stock orders are much more accurate which has freed up more time to concentrate on some of the aging stock still on hand. Having the proper stock on hand now has decreased the amount of outside purchases from other dealers which saves not only the customers wait time but the technician waiting time. I look forward to some future sessions with ADMI."
--- Chris Needham, Parts Manager
– Jim Keay Ford Lincoln, Ottawa, ON

"Dunlop Ford has been working with you and ADMI for several months now. You have provided our parts manager, Jerry, with methods and techniques to better manage our parts inventory using ADP. Your expertise in Parts Inventory Management has helped Dunlop Ford in several ways including simplifying stock orders. We are very pleased to be on the [IPIC] program and I have recommended ADMI to fellow dealers."
--- Gary Dunlop, President
– Dunlop Ford Sales Ltd., Lethbridge, AB

"We are 3 months into our ADMI Invested Parts Inventory Control program and could not be more excited by the change process. We were not stocking enough of the right parts, and were NOT able to properly determine what the "right parts" were. With ADMI that issue, is now defined and remains a Dealer management accountability tool. We now have many more parts on the shelf for our technicians and outside purchases have been dramatically reduced.

The biggest game changer has been our Parts inventory awareness, and the changes we have made, assisted by ADMI for careful process management change. We already see visible changes. The cold eye, non critical review by ADMI has assisted in getting immediate buy in from our Dealership Parts managers."
--- Kim Clark, Manager of Fixed Operations
– Cam Clark Ford Auto Group, Airdrie, AB

"Just to let you know that Tammy and I look forward to our conference call each month. You have helped us to understand our DMS system for getter results and have answered all our questions involving our DMS about inventory control and other functions we have asked you about. Keep up the great work."
--- Gary Albright, Parts Director
– Taylor Ford Sales Ltd., Moncton, NB
