Company adds five new executives to sales and management teams.
By being part of the program, Kukui says NAPA is an organization that “goes above and beyond to support the automotive aftermarket industry by elevating the standards to which shops are held, by enabling shop owners to achieve success in their personal and professional lives, and supporting the communities which they serve.”
ASA Sponsored Benefit Provider companies such as Kukui provide special-priced member services and products to ASA members to help offset their everyday business costs.
In this partnership, shops that join both MWACA and Kukui, will receive financial support that enables them to participate in the auto repair industry’s most engaged education and mentoring organization and to also take advantage of the most advanced suite of products available to auto repair shops.
Kukui Reviews is focused on one of the most important aspects of running a business today, online reputation. Positive comments from customers produce an average increase in sales of 18 percent and customers are shown to spend 30 percent more per visit because of positive reviews.
Kukui supports the shop featured in each episode of Garage Rehab with a new website designed to help them revitalize their marketing efforts and achieve ultimate success.
Recognition recipients are chosen based on actual results of success with Kukui customers and through recommendation of those customers.
Through this program, coaching and training organizations, software providers and repair shops that meet a rigid set of standards and best practices are identified and promoted through the partnership with Kukui Certified.
In his new role, Lea will focus on touting the benefits of leveraging Kukui’s integrated platform to address the needs and concerns of shop owners today, preparing them to meet the demands of tomorrow.
After 18 months of research and development and 15,000 miles of travel visiting shops for their input, Kukui is releasing the first of several new additions to the All-in-One Success Platform, the Kukui DVI.
The plan was to hit the streets and gather feedback directly from shop owners, whether they were Kukui customers or not, and hear firsthand what made them successful and understand what else they needed to continue that success.
Kukui’s new Lost Customer Module identifies which customers have not been in the shop for a while, while AutoShopFollowUp.com aims to handle the follow-up calls consistently and affordably in the partnership.
