Lassen Chevrolet-Toyota saves $23,976/year
Recognizing opportunities by eliminating wasted space
In the past, Lassen Chevrolet-Toyota used traditional filing cabinets and shop space to store folders and paper documents. Aside from spending $2,300 a month in storage and administration costs, documents took up valuable space that could instead be used to store parts or additional inventory. With excessive amounts of paper, along with both systemic and organizational problems, the company spent countless hours retrieving documents.
"We had paperwork stacked up three feet deep in some areas. Office personnel would store papers for 10-15 years. We had paperwork dating back all the way to the ‘60s. It was just unnecessary." -
