"When you are so close to the numbers, it is really useful to have a fresh pair of eyes. That's where we rely on BWR, and the fact that they do it so efficiently gives us a lot of confidence."
After 40 years in the motoring industry I'm still passionate about good quality cars. The industry has evolved considerably over these decades and Hawke's Bay Peugeot & Suzuki has had to adapt to the changing environment; particularly in recent times as motorists have moved from larger to smaller vehicles, which has seen major developments in small fuel efficient diesel vehicles.
People are realising that they can confidently and safely drive more compact cars with smaller engines and fortunately we're well placed to provide that. Suzuki is a world leader in small car technology and Peugeot are diesel specialists. The challenge is keeping stock fresh and turning over, and making sure that the dealership is able to source the cars that are in demand at the time. To keep our finger on the pulse, we (Dennis and his 10 strong team) look at the figures on a daily basis.
When you are so close to the numbers it is really useful to have a fresh pair of eyes. That's where we rely on BWR and the fact that they do it so efficiently gives us a lot of confidence. It's important for someone to challenge your approach to running the business and that's where Regan Loach adds that extra value. They challenge you to justify your rationale, which either reaffirms your approach or helps you identify opportunities to make the business more efficient. Both Janet Jackson (office manager) and I find BWR always very keen to be of assistance. They're helpful and they're pleasant to deal with, which is why we've been a client of BWR for 20+ years.
