The Appraisal Lane co-founder and chief executive officer Jeff Risner will host a workshop at the upcoming 2018 NADA Show titled "Counting Cars: Stop Gambling with Used Car Appraisals."
The workshop is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. on March 23 and March 24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Along with how to improve the appraisal process for core and noncore inventory, attendees will learn common used-car appraisal pitfalls and new processes that improve inventory management and disposition.
"A sizeable 60 percent of vehicles that dealerships process today consists of noncore makes, models and trims," Risner said in a news release. "With over 2,600 make/model/trim combinations manufactured this year alone, it's a challenge for dealers to accurately appraise every vehicle they process, and understandably so. More than ever, today's dealers need new techniques and resources to improve the appraisal process, increase incremental sales and mitigate exposure to wholesale loss."
The workshop is designed to teach dealers how to improve the overall appraisal process, optimize inventory disposition and increase conquest sales, aged inventory sales and fixed operations profits.
Risner said the informative workshop is fitting for anyone interested in improving their used-car operations, such as used-car managers/pre-owned directors, dealer principals and general managers.
