Bodyshop Alliance is able to drastically reduce the overall cycle time. Typical results are overall cycle times of 6 to 12 days.
Using tour system our members reduce the typical numbers of vehicles on site by about a factor 3. This has the effect of removing undesirable clutter from all bodyshop departments from administration through to valeting. Logistics costs are much reduced, parts cash-flow is improved and the risk of damage to vehicles on site is reduced to almost nothing. It can be a strange sight to see the absence of the winter log-jam in a typical bodyshop but evidence shows us that a bodyshop staying fit and limber throughout the year has an exponentially greater opportunity to generate incremental profit through a busy period whilst keeping all types of customer happier.
In truth there is no downside to repairing vehicles quickly and increasing numbers of clients and bodyshops are tuning in to the benefits of rapid cycle times. This is a core value of Bodyshop Alliance members and provides the bedrock for building a stable business with healthy sustainable profits.
