Addressing the Challenges of a
Smaller Upfit Inventory 
First Step is to Implement our “Coming Soon” Routine

This routine gets upfit vehicles, that are on order, included in your work truck inventory weeks sooner.  How you might ask?

This routine can add upfit vehicles to your commercial inventory long before they are available in your DMS.  This means buyers will have the opportunity of seeing (and buying) these vehicles weeks before they become available to your DMS and therefore your work truck inventory.  Which means replacement vehicles can be ordered weeks sooner, as well.  

Second Step is to Implement our “Rules Based Inventory Load” Routine

This routine can increase the size of your work truck inventory, while maintaining its integrity.  This routine will load your work truck inventory based on rules you establish for your inventory.  Below is an example of one dealer’s rules.  They did not want their work truck inventory overwhelmed with retail pickups.
