“20 Groups have needed an overhaul for a long time and we’ve made that happen.”

GOLDEN, CO – November 9, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Today Neil Frame and Steven Zarwell of Channel Ideas announced they are accepting applications from Powersports dealers across North America to be part of a new and innovative way to provide 20 group services.

T.E.A.M.“We’ve known for a long time that the old way of doing group facilitation has lost its effectiveness. We are constantly told, “The meetings are nice but we can’t implement and stick with the plan that is designed at the group meeting”, said Steve Zarwell. Steve continues that dealers want one-on-one regular on-site visits followed by regular phone follow-up with the Principle and managers in order to stay on track.

Policy and procedure steps will be a focus with the biggest emphasis on the financials. Both composites and financial statements/balance sheets will be reviewed monthly with each dealer to provide the highest level of information and advice. Neil Frame President of Channel Ideas said “we know the value of composites but the understanding and evaluation of the actual financial statement is the key to survival and continued growth. We will help make changes that stabilize their store and put increased profit to the bottom line”.

The program includes management calls with each dealer and a monthly group conference call. We will provide a higher level of advice and training with on-site visitations and the regular moderator without increasing overall costs. “Our T.E.A.M program will only be moderated by people who have worked in dealerships and understand the complete operation, Said Neil Frame. The package is real world, substantive and on target to increase individual and store success.

TEAM will provide high level training and advice in all departments.

“No dealership works the same way or experiences the same market variables so we take the approach to “know” the dealer and then implement logical solutions for that dealer’s departments store, and marketplace.
