  2. How do you make money on a service call? Pricing Repairing the equipment and/or customer in a “PROFITABLE AMOUNT OF TIME” By increasing your company’s first call completes, you free up time.

Profit: excess of revenues over outlays and expenses in a business enterprise over a given period of time….. Opportunity: the benefit that could have been gained from an alternative use of the same resource “Excess Revenues that could be gained by Increasing First Call Completes”

  12. Creating The Tech “Number” In the haste to improve, many servicers make the mistake of measuring too many elements or not measuring at all. Measure what is beneficial to your customers and your company. Creating the “ What's inspected becomes expected” culture. The Tech number should simply be the numbers that drive you to success. 3- 5 items are perfect • Maintenance Plan Conversion • Sales Lead Conversion • Average Service Ticket Revenue • Total Revenue • Trip Charge % • Technicians First Call Complete % • Call takers FCC • Pre-screeners FCC • Most common Parts used on FCC • Brands or Product FCC percentage • COD or warranty FCC percentage

  13. Motivation There is nothing that drives behavior better than a little old fashion competition with your peers. Management tool, there is no hiding low performers and will weed them out in a hurry. Along with measuring, sharing, and celebrating, a monetary reward helps.
