Now here is what We can do for you! 

We are highly skilled General Motors Ordering Systems experts!

We can do a regression analysis for the past 6 months or as far back as General Motors will allow us to pull data on the number of vehicles you ordered for any period up to 365 Days.

We can assess the number of times you transferred vehicles each month and compare the data to see why you had to dealer trade-in vehicles in order to satisfy a customer

We can set up consensus-based individual growth patterns for your BAC that will reflect your current sales trends by allocation group,

We can build orders for your comparison areas that match the fastest-selling vehicles delivered if there are sufficient data facts to complete the configuration and preliminary order.

We can build orders with you and your chosen representative that will require only minimal adjustment once Placed

We can handle consensus, Final Allocation by week, Running Pass 2 Which you never hear about but is a viable way of gaining vehicles that are heavily constrained, and providing sufficient preliminary orders for Pass 3 for the un-constrained and non-consensed product available nationally, and you are only going against the small number of dealers each week that are asking for additional desired quantities above the allocated quantities.

We do everything you need to get to the one critical moment for a dealership that occurs on Tuesday of each week, and that is the replacement or the tweaking of the placed orders to add free flow accessories, remove free flow accessories, and adjust color and trim.

 We can assist with that process, but it is the onsite representative that makes the final decision about the vehicles that will be built for your location.

Wet is where you can spend a lot of money if the vehicles are not equipped for your individual market demographics and psychographics buying influences.

We can control the flat consensus process that allows you to run out of inventories for example if you look at your past consensus sales forecast does is say the same number each month if so that is a flat consensus,

We you have "quantities needed" showing minus -10 meaning We don't need any and then you put a number in the "requested quantities" when doing consensus your math logic may be somewhat misplaced and non-functional with a full logic system such as some manufacturers are running an AI (artificial intelligence) machine talking to machine Order Management system.

We can help short term or long term. Services start at 1000.00 dollars per month based on volume increments of 500 or fewer new vehicle sales per year.

With us, You will have a dedicated representative who does nothing but inventory analysis, building preliminary orders for retail stock customers, Fleet volume and Sold vehicles are the dealership management and We will provide help if requested to review the orders and compare to Wenventory Balancing standards for your district, zone, region or state.

General Motors fiscal Week begins on Thursday of each week all allocations are done on Thursdays and you have until Saturday night 9 PM center of the universe to get your orders placed and counted within the weekly Wenventory Balancing analysis that runs each Saturday night 9 PM. Deliveries that are sold and delivered should also be reported by Sat night 9 PM for the same reasons and Run pass one completed prior to Sat 9 PM. 

he accuracy of the DART report depends on the dealers’ input and reporting on a daily basis.

Monday is the region's big data harvest day (sweeps) for the districts and for the placement of allocation and constraints for the dealer.

Very important to understand that "if you have vehicles that remain unreported from the Weekend and you are holding a delivery back that is a highly constrained vehicle" you are denying yourself an opportunity to get the constraint allocated back within 10 days of that Monday night 9 pm center of the universe Detroit.

We would appreciate greatly the opportunity of working on your behalf with any of your General Motors Order related issues; short or long term or onsite training and individual coaching
