About the Service Performance Group:

BraunAbility partnered with Cecil Bullard to work with several of our dealers in early 2013 as part of a “Service Performance Group” or SPG, to consult and implement best service practices. This group of four dealers has made huge gains in service offerings, systems & processes, profitability among other things. The renewed focus and refinement of mobility service and the full service model has changed how these businesses operate in a positive way and open new revenue streams that were not fully developed before. The project was such a success that we have added two more SPG’s in 2014 and plan to start a third this fall. Please contact Justin Riendeau at BraunAbility with any inquiries in to the project details.
