Cover Story John Walker

Established aftermarket programs

INCREASE PROFITS

Customers don’t always approach you for business. You sometimes have to approach them! Professional sales and marketing people worldwide, know that in order to sell any kind of product, they must at some point approach and sell (face to face) the customer what they have to offer. Too many times, in a typical equipment dealership, our marketing approach to the aftermarket is exactly the opposite. We have a tendency to believe that parts, service and rental sales are guaranteed and we have a tendency to wait for the customer to approach us. Most equipment dealers’ aftermarket efforts are reactive rather than proactive. Forty plus years ago, with the urging of the manufacturers, many successful equipment dealers established a parallel sales force to their equipment sales personnel. Clark Equipment Company was one of the first to champion Customer Service Sales Representatives or CSSR personnel. Several years ago, John Deere’s Agricultural Division initiated their dealer program for calling on the customers before, during and after the sale. This marketing program is growing slowly and where the dealers are involved, the program is proving highly successful. Despite this, in the rest of the industry only a small amount of effort is being put forth by the manufacturers. With product differences narrowing dramatically, customers are seeking value added services. Surveys continue to reflect the customers’ interest. Customers want to know whether or not the dealer is willing and able to satisfy their needs after the sale.

In particular, dealers do a poor job of marketing their service departments. Will the dealership provide parts availability, quick service response time, rental capability and operator training programs, as well as safety instruction? These important and profitable areas of value added selling keep the customer returning for their second, third and even fourth piece of equipment from your dealership. It is the “key” to increased market share of product. Your aftermarket support is your dealership’s most unfailing weapon against the competition! We are continually asked by equipment dealers, how to increase margins on equipment sales (though our area of expertise is not selling equipment.) Margins on complete goods are nowhere near what most equipment dealers want them to be. Despite this, studies and surveys indicate that customers will pay more for equipment if the dealership provides the service after the sale. Research indicates that a very high percentage of purchase decision makers would pay more for the equipment, if quality aftermarket services were discussed and provided. This service cannot just be perceived, it must be a fact of service before, during and after the sale. The question is: How much more are they willing to pay? Play a game of “what if” with your financial statement. Add 1% to 3% or even 5% to your margins on complete goods and discover the overall effect this has upon your dealership’s financial strength. We have experienced successful equipment dealers in all types of industries who have learned the truth of these surveys.

Cover Story These successful dealers have increased their complete goods margins, and at the same time, increased both product support sales and product support profits. This is why the successful and profitable equipment dealer works to develop a strong parallel selling team for the dealership. A selling team devoted to increasing the dealer’s productivity, profitability, and customer delight! You must recognize up front that in today’s marketplace that your customers have a choice! A choice of where they purchase their parts, their service, their rental and their operator and safety training, after they purchase the equipment from your dealership. If equipment dealers and department managers recognize this important fact, they will quickly recognize the necessity of marketing their aftermarket through a strong CSSR program. Many times an equipment dealer will tell us they do not need a Customer Service Sales Representative because the dealer is already getting all of the product support business, or at least all the dealership can possibly handle. Most dealers will tell you that their equipment sales personnel do this job very well. In fact these dealers are walking away from the opportunity they created when they sold the equipment in the first place. Your equipment dealership probably does not need a CSSR if your financial numbers are somewhere close to the following:

What makes Wholesaler unique?

 arts: 28% of your dealership’s sales are parts, your margins P are 30% to 34%, and all your customers are using your dealership for 90% of their parts and accessory requirements.  ervice: 25% contribution (customer, internal & warranty) S of your total dealership’s sales are service, your dealership is achieving an 80%+ service billing efficiency and your service gross margins are running between 65% and 70%. Rental: Your dealership is experiencing 6% of acquisition cost as utilization dollars and a gross profit margin of 45%. Training: Your customers are all using your dealership for operator and safety training and your dealership is showing a 50% gross profit on this training. We have discovered that the average dealer has little more than a 30% service market share (30% of the dealers’ customer base is using the dealerships’ service department), which leaves 70% of the dealers’ customers shopping elsewhere for service. This 70% is the dealership’s unrecognized opportunity for dramatic sales and profit increases. If your dealership mirrors this model or is an average dealership then it becomes the time to truly market your service department. The successful equipment dealer should market the fact that the dealership wants the customer’s service business and is willing to guarantee that the dealership wants to keep the customer’s unplanned downtime to an absolute minimum.

Cover Story As always let us remind the dealer that your service department is a key element in increasing the dealership’s parts business. If your dealership is performing the service business or is performing planned maintenance for the customer, it is your dealership that is getting the parts business. The other reminder is that service sales and profits also have a dramatic effect of increasing the dealership’s Absorption Rate. As we mentioned at the start of this article, customers don’t approach you for business, you have to approach them! One of our clients in the golf and turf industry could not understand why one of their customers who owned thirty pieces of the dealer’s lines of equipment purchased the bulk of their parts from the will-fitters. A survey of the customer indicated that the will-fitter called on the buyer a minimum of once a month and in season more often. Furthermore, these personal sales contacts were supplemented by a weekly telephone call to the customer from the will-fitter. The dealership was a short six minutes away from the customer. In a period of five years no one from the dealership’s parts department had called upon the customer to ask for the parts business. It doesn’t take a consultant or a brain surgeon to discover what the problem was at this dealership. We have mentioned it many times in our articles and seminars, that marketing your dealership’s aftermarket requires the same techniques used in the marketing of complete goods. Equipment dealers have sales personnel for complete goods. It therefore stands to reason that there is a need for sales personnel for product support.

Developing a thriving aftermarket or product support sales program takes a great deal of work and effort. It is a program that must originate with the dealer principal. It is a program that will assist your dealership to regain, retain and grow your overall dealership profitability. We recommend that dealers who do not have a CSSR program consider the possibilities of developing this program. Those dealers who do have a program should continue to work at the program to keep it successful. Successful dealers will tell you that this program develops the financial strength of the dealership dramatically. Here’s your Manual Special for this month: Service Marketing for Equipment Dealers, this is a 68 page manual, again on special for $16.99. It covers extensively the topic of selling service to your customer base. It answers every question you might be asked by the customer, it is a must for every Service Manager, every CSSR, PSSR, every prospective CSSR and for Branch Managers and Dealer Principals. Email us at amsconco@aol.com we will email you the manual along with our invoice.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

ZIG or ZAG? Here we are in June and 2015 is shaping up to be a yawn. u Retail sales are lackluster. u Consumer debt is flat. u US production is flat or slightly down. u International production is flat or down. u The dollar’s strength is hurting exports. Here we are 70 months into the recovery and there still is no recovery. So where does the material handling industry go from here? Is it time to ZIG or ZAG? By ZIG or ZAG I am referring to both your short and longterm strategic plans to increase business, profitability, cash flow and value. Depending on the timeframe you set for yourself to monetize your investment, changes in the material handling supply chain, disruptive activities impacting every industry and timing of reasonable growth returning in the economy ….you have a big job ahead of you. I don’t know what you’re thinking but I find it hard to see a significant turnaround any time soon. Consequently, management has to tightly manage the balance sheet and at the same time generate positive cash flow. The lowlights noted above I believe justify my thinking. To me the short term almost requires a zero-based budgeting approach for the entire operation. You remember zero-based budgeting don’t you? You start with a

blank sheet and start building your budget for what you really, really, really need and dispense with the rest. At the same time and somewhat of a result of your zero-based work you find ways to lower your fixed costs, thus making it easier to make a profit. This approach helps you hunker down and protect your investment until such time as a miracle recovery occurs where you can take advantage of your solid balance sheet and low fixed costs, or it is time to monetize the business without needlessly depreciating shareholder value. On the other hand, if you are a hard driver and a (calculated) risk taker, you may choose to ZAG and take advantage of the low interest rates, dealerships with cash flow problems, manufacturers looking for dealers that know what they are doing and expand the business and consolidate activities to reduce costs and improve profits. Right now there is no doubt that this scenario is possible. Did you know Warren Buffet recently bought a group of auto dealers? A couple of other hedge fund managers are looking to do the same. Hmmmmm, wonder why? Could it be that rolling up dealers is a good idea? Speaking of dealer groups I suggest you go to the Hendricks Auto Group website and review the history of the company and how they acquired 133 franchises, 95 dealerships and 29 brands. In 2014, according to the website, Hendricks sold 180,000 vehicles for approximately $10 billion dollars. Can you imagine how many customers came through the service department? How did they do that? How could they own franchises from different manufacturers? If you want to find out how they reached this point I suggest visiting their website, and while you are at it you may want to do the same for Berkshire Hathaway because you will be surprised how many different dealers and rental businesses they own. What these large investor groups have done is create a brand, a brand that means more to a customer than the equipment or vehicle brand that is being sold. Sure they have to deal with vendors and sure they have to meet their territory numbers, but they can achieve above average results because they are a more efficient operation, created a reputation of providing excellent service and have the horsepower to get the job done. In short, most vendors would want them on their team. If you like this ZAG approach there are people out there looking to make a return on their money and while the money is expensive from mezzanine investors, when you combine it with a bank loan the blended rate isn’t so bad. Since the mezz funds can be considered equity it makes the loans easier to get. What I have found is there are banks that work with specific mezz players to make these types of investments possible. I have mentioned a few months ago that the means of getting material handling equipment to the market is changing and has to change to continue to make it a win-win-win for vendors, dealers and customers. The game as we know it is probably on the way out ... with new ways evolving of providing material handling solutions to customers. Squawk Box on CNBC has been bringing on leaders from the top 50 Disruptors. Go get a copy of the list along with a stiff drink ... you are going to need it. It is absolutely

Bottom Line amazing how these young and old people alike are changing the way products go to market with more services and cheaper prices. One that recently caught my eye has to do with batteries. Think about this for a moment ... if Elon Musk and his crew find a way to produce batteries that can basically convert all lift trucks to be battery operated, what would that do to your business? If you are making plans to retire or sell the business I would ZIG. If you still have fire in your belly and like a challenge then ZAG after giving a tremendous amount of thought to how money will be made in the lift truck business or the one of many businesses your find yourself in using the hard and human assets you have at your disposal.

Human Element Caliper Corp.

Remodel your hiring process with team interviewing Team interviews can take a hiring process that is old and worn and bring it back to life, helping you hire great employees that stay and shine! And the process is DIY once you have the tools. A team interview typically involves assembling several interviewers to gain a broader perspective on the candidate’s experience, skills and personality. The interview-panel format is especially helpful when the candidate will be reporting to more than one manager, since interviewers all get to hear the same responses and can follow up on each other’s questions. Alternatively, team interviews can be conducted in a series of one-on-one meetings for ease of scheduling and to reduce the intimidation level for candidates. Two key elements of team interviewing are variety and consistency. Employ both and notice how much richer and accurate your selections become. You can incorporate variety into the process by engaging interviewers with distinct personality differences. For example, you might enlist one interviewer who is process oriented and another who is a task juggler, one who is gregarious alongside someone who is reserved, or pair a big-picture thinker with a tactical one. This shows candidates the diversity they’ll experience. With enough personality ‘flavor’ in the mix, your candidate will also find the interviewer who best puts her at ease and, by extension, encourages her to be more authentic.

Consider variety in perspectives as well. Whether people are interviewers or not, their perspectives are critical when putting together questions. Ask yourself: l  Are the manager’s concerns represented? What about peers? What behavioral questions should I ask of the applicant to address these views? l Are internal customers represented? l Have I incorporated a matrix manager’s needs? l  Will the candidate have direct reports? If so, how can I address their concerns in the interview? Then take the time to brainstorm questions that touch on the range of perspectives. You can also vary where you conduct interviews. It may not be possible for the candidate to visit each interviewer’s office, yet parading interviewers into a conference room can be tiring for everyone. Break things up by holding some interviews in a central location and others in offices. Consistency is equally critical to maximizing hiring effectiveness. Try using a structured guide that gives interviewers parameters and guidelines for asking questions. Instead of each person asking the same question, discuss in advance who will be covering which questions and how. Training can help interviewers who are inexperienced in asking behavioral questions. Making the effort to build those skills across your interview team will pay off big time.

Human Element Determine in advance the maximum number of interviews for candidates. Putting them “through the wringer” in a prolonged hiring process is grueling for them and defeating for you, and it makes the calibration of interview results time consuming and hard to achieve. But whatever that number is, be consistent in how you apply it. Finally, spend a consistent amount of time debriefing your team. Don’t shortchange a candidate because one team member can’t meet at a particular time. Wait until everyone is present to review your scores and notes. It’s also a good idea to have a facilitator conduct the calibration so that all voices are heard. Reminders for variety: l  Expose your candidates to multiple personalities within the organization. l  Apply a range of perspectives when crafting interview questions. l  Use variety in meeting locations and times. Reminders for consistency: l Ask the same set of core questions to each candidate. l Debrief with your interview team consistently. l Use consistent selection tools beyond interviews. By adding these simple items to your hiring toolbox, you can rebuild your staffing process so that it’s better than ever.

Remembering an industry icon... Howard Bernstein

ATD selects Raymond for Excellence in Practice recognition

An industry icon has passed at the age of 92. Howard Bernstein, founder and former chairman of the Atlas Companies in Schiller Park died at 10:30 p.m. Monday, May 18, at Evanston Hospital in Chicago, Ill. Bernstein loved the material handling industry and spent more than 75 years building his business, but more importantly he built friendships with everyone he met. Howard Bernstein After leaving the Atlas Companies, Bernstein 1923-2015 was passionate about encouraging young people to enter the material handling industry. He even formed the Howard Bernstein Scholarship Fund contributing his own money to launch it. Bernstein mentioned only five universities in the country had courses in distribution, but with this scholarship and the efforts of MHEDA and MHI that list has grown to more than 30 universities with distribution and engineering courses. Bernstein served as president of MHEDA in 1965 and attended almost every convention. “Howard was one of the greatest Howard wearing his famous leaders and icons in this industry and an hat worn at the Hannover example of someone who truly gave of himself for the betterment of others. He Fair in Germany. never stopped sharing his gifts of experience and knowledge,” said Liz Richards, executive vice president of MHEDA. “The past few years, Howard passionately worked to help raise the awareness of this industry among students through the establishment of the Howard Bernstein Industrial Distribution Scholarship first by seeding the fund with $150,000 and then tirelessly fund raising within the material handling community bringing in tens of thousands of dollars. His message was about the importance of ‘investment’ in Bernstein received the Lifetime young people. I was fortunate Achievement Award from MHEDA. to have worked with Howard on this effort and have had the pleasure of Howard’s friendship and mentorship for the past 20 years. The material handling industry has lost a great man.” Aftermarket consultant John Walker added, “I first met Howard early in the 60s, and in my entire career I have never met a man with the integrity of Howard ... if he told you something you could count on it.” Memorials can be sent to any of these organizations that Howard was passionate about.

Dealing with your customer’s time constraints

Q A

 ow much time should you expect from a customer for H an appointment? This is one of those many questions about sales issues for which the answer always begins with “It depends.” It depends, first of all, if this is a prospect (someone who has not purchased) or a regular customer (someone who buys regularly). Generally speaking, you can expect more time with a customer than with a prospect.

It depends, secondly, on the understanding your customer has about the purpose and agenda of the call. For example, if you asked for 60 minutes in order to detail your response to his request for a proposal or a piece of equipment, then you should expect 60 minutes. If you asked for a short period of time to introduce you and your company, then you are probably lucky to get 30 minutes. It depends, next, on your personal reputation. If you are a seasoned rep who, over the years, has built a reputation that you won’t waste your customer’s time, and that you are always prepared to share something you think will be of value to the customer, then you should expect more time. If, however, you

The Lo Riser Inclining Platform Trailer is a versatile tool that will help increase your efficiencies and lower costs to deliver a higher return on your investment. With a Lo Riser you’ll see: Lower labor costs - one man loading/unloading offers more deliveries per day

Lower specialized equipment costs - no rollback truck required, just a pickup truck - no crown point, equipment can be driven up the built-in ramp

Lower worker’s comp claims - enhanced safety features eliminate most opportunities for injuries - no more dangerous, slanted ramp boards

don’t have such a reputation with the customer, then you should expect less time. It depends, finally, on your objective for the sales call. If you want to check up on the delivery of an order, for example, it probably shouldn’t take you more than ten minutes. If you want to get a tour of the facility and meet four of the key people, it could take a couple of hours. As an overall rule to guide you, the call shouldn’t take any longer than it needs to take. In other words, have a purpose, have an agenda and move methodically and professionally through that agenda. Remember, of equal importance to how much time you think the call should take is how much time the customer has to devote to it. As you know, time is the scarce commodity of our age, and your customer doesn’t have much of it. You need to respect your customer’s time constraints. If you expect an hour of your customer’s time, that’s 16 percent of his day. Are you that important? Will you bring him/her enough value to justify that? Never allow your preconceived notions to override your customer’s time constraints.

Q A

If the time allowed for a sales call is too short, should you cancel or reschedule? Good question. To put my answer in perspective, remember that I believe that time is the customer’s most scarce asset. They never have enough time. That’s why they use voice mail, gate keepers and set agendas – to help them get the most out of their days. It is so difficult to actually get face-to-face selling time that any time you get should be respected. I’ve said all of that in order to say this: Take the appointment, even if you know you don’t have enough time to do what you want to do.

That gives you an opportunity to make a personal contact, and to learn a little bit about the customer. Do as much as you can during that first appointment, and, before you leave, make an appointment for the next visit to complete what you started.

Your Business Eileen Schmidt

Shelving Inc. celebrates 55 years When Mike Schodowski sees a disorganized office or business, he often feels the urge to make the space more organized and space efficient. “It eats you in the stomach because you know you can really help them,” said Schodowski, who as vice president of sales for Shelving, Inc., knows how to make space work harder. Now in its 55th year, Shelving, Inc. provides shelving and racking products to make the best use of the available space. Shelving, Inc. offers design services and complete turnkey installation for both large and small businesses. Since 2007 the company has expanded into the residential market as well. The business, headquartered in Auburn Hills, Mich., remains in the Detroit area of its inception and in its over half century in operation has expanded both its bricks and mortar operation and two online stores. Jack Schodowski, Mike’s father, founded the business in 1960. The new venture followed his career as a mathematics instructor at Wayne State University, his work as an industrial engineer with Square D Company and a job as a regional sales representative for Interlake Steel of Chicago. Jack Schodowski’s move from academia to industry to entrepreneur was driven in part by the desire to control his own destiny, according to his son, Mike Schodowski.

“You get paid what you’re really truly worth. And he would help employ people” providing good salaries, Mike Schodowski said. “That was also a high motivation.” Shelving, Inc. was established on Riopelle Drive in East Detroit’s warehouse district. Jack Schodowski began by selling slotted angle materials by day and building his own custom shelves at night. From there, the business grew into a warehouse on Grand River Ave., and later, a larger facility on West Chicago Blvd. The company continued growing, moving to its current location in Auburn Hills in 1979, and adding more corporate office space in 1994, according to a company history. The business developed an online presence for generating sales leads in 1997, and after e-commerce orders began to grow, created a website solely for e-commerce in 2007. “The retail (side of the business) is branching out more into e-commerce,” said Mike Schodowski, who said Shelving, Inc.’s business-to-business market is currently larger than the online side of the operation, although the latter is growing at a quick clip. Schodowski said he envisions this technological expansion continuing during Shelving, Inc.’s next 55 years, both for the company and its customers. “The rate of change is so fast, you


Your Business really have to be able to respond and change to market conditions faster now than even five years ago,” he said. Although the recent recession proved difficult, Schodowski said Shelving, Inc. made it through with “a lot of good teamwork.” “We did not lay off any employees during that period. We didn’t reduce employee base or cut their pay,” he said. Today, there are 23 company team members and Schodowski anticipates one or two more will be hired by the end of the year. He senses the current economic climate will continue to improve. Since 2000, Shelving, Inc. has been profitable every year except one, despite the recession, according to the company’s history. It posted record sales in 2013. Shelving, Inc. donates 10% of its profits to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit, MI. “Both Shelving, Inc. and the Schodowski family began their lives in Detroit and we want to give back to the community from which our roots started.” Mike Schodowski said.

There’s More To An EPS Reman Engine Than Meets The Eye. With EPS, you get the complete package.

One year warranty that we stand behind

Solid reputation in the industry for quality and integrity

Convenient, round trip freight, including prepaid, discounted outbound and return shipping

Knowledgeable application experts who can help you

Outstanding quality control – we do everything in-house

Customers don’t always approach you for business. You sometimes have to approach them! Professional sales and marketing people worldwide, know that in order to sell any kind of product, they must at some point approach and sell (face to face) the customer what they have to offer. Too many times, in a typical equipment dealership, our marketing approach to the aftermarket is exactly the opposite. We have a tendency to believe that parts, service and rental sales are guaranteed and we have a tendency to wait for the customer to approach us. Most equipment dealers’ aftermarket efforts are reactive rather than proactive. Forty plus years ago, with the urging of the manufacturers, many successful equipment dealers established a parallel sales force to their equipment sales personnel. Clark Equipment Company was one of the first to champion Customer Service Sales Representatives or CSSR personnel. Several years ago, John Deere’s Agricultural Division initiated their dealer program for calling on the customers before, during and after the sale. This marketing program is growing slowly and where the dealers are involved, the program is proving highly successful. Despite this, in the rest of the industry only a small amount of effort is being put forth by the manufacturers. With product differences narrowing dramatically, customers are seeking value added services. Surveys continue to reflect the customers’ interest. Customers want to know whether or not the dealer is willing and able to satisfy their needs after the sale.

In particular, dealers do a poor job of marketing their service departments. Will the dealership provide parts availability, quick service response time, rental capability and operator training programs, as well as safety instruction? These important and profitable areas of value added selling keep the customer returning for their second, third and even fourth piece of equipment from your dealership. It is the “key” to increased market share of product. Your aftermarket support is your dealership’s most unfailing weapon against the competition! We are continually asked by equipment dealers, how to increase margins on equipment sales (though our area of expertise is not selling equipment.) Margins on complete goods are nowhere near what most equipment dealers want them to be. Despite this, studies and surveys indicate that customers will pay more for equipment if the dealership provides the service after the sale. Research indicates that a very high percentage of purchase decision makers would pay more for the equipment, if quality aftermarket services were discussed and provided. This service cannot just be perceived, it must be a fact of service before, during and after the sale. The question is: How much more are they willing to pay? Play a game of “what if” with your financial statement. Add 1% to 3% or even 5% to your margins on complete goods and discover the overall effect this has upon your dealership’s financial strength. We have experienced successful equipment dealers in all types of industries who have learned the truth of these surveys.

Raymond showcases best practices in operator & pedestrian safety In honor of the second annual National Forklift Safety Day on June 9, 2015, sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association (ITA), The Raymond Corporation is sharing best practices in operator and pedestrian safety by offering a free poster to serve as a best practices reminder to operators and pedestrians. With labor being more than 70 percent of lift truck ownership costs, operator training and accountability are critical to a company’s operational efficiency and profitability,” says Michael Field, chief executive office for The Raymond Corporation. Raymond provides a lift truck operator training program called Safety On The Move® that helps customers comply with their non-delegable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) duty for all industrial lift truck operators to be trained and certified in the use of their equipment. Raymond also provides an integrated suite of fleet management solutions called iWAREHOUSE Essential™ and iWAREHOUSE Enterprise™ that can collect information about the lift truck and the operator to assist in best practices in the warehouse. Deriving best practices from both the training program and management solutions, Raymond created the poster to help provide a number of guidelines for those who work in a warehouse environment. www.raymondcorp.com
