Smart business management is preparing for the "What-Ifs." While it's hard to predict sicknesses, it's also hard to predict if an employee will resign. If your dealership is void of F&I staffing, there can be a disruption in your day to day sales operations. Before your dealership stalls out, setting up a "Fill-In" F&I Specialist should be a consideration.
What is a "Fill-In" F&I Specialist?
Staffing agencies hire all kinds of people, with an array of qualifications and skills, to send out to companies needing temporary help. "PRN" staffing is very common in the medical world for hospitals to be able to cover for full-time employee vacations, illnesses, and family emergencies. The education system keeps a list of substitute teachers they can call the morning they have the need. That's what a "Fill-In" F&I Specialist is for automotive dealerships.
Set Up for a "Fill-In" F&I Specialist with a Qualified Vendor
Not anyone can step in as your F&I Specialist, and that is why you want to look for a vendor that can have the F&I Specialist "Fill-In" to keep your dealership from a paralyzing situation. Not to mention, a non-compliance situation that can be detrimental to your dealership.
- Your dealership needs someone that has the financial education and knowledge to step in without training.
- Your dealership needs to have a vendor they can rely on for short and long-term needs.
