Decades ago, you could replace car keys anywhere. But over time, the key replacement business shifted from the corner store to the dealership. Nearly every automotive parts category has developed a thriving aftermarket -- except keys. Why? Tooling, inventory, and training requirements have made it cost-prohibitive for automotive service centers to enter the channel...until now.
Breakthroughs in technologies have created one of the biggest opportunities for automotive channels in decades. Attend this webinar to learn how to maximize this opportunity and build a competitive advantage for your shop.
* Stop sending customers to the dealership for automotive key replacement
* Drive new customers into your store
* Increase your average repair order
* Make 50-65% margin on key and remote replacement

This also serves to build a collaborative relationship with customers that will keep them returning to your shop and increase your revenue. More cars will not drive revenue; smart repairs will.
