How-To Advice on Running Your Business
AutoShop LifeLine (www.TurnAroundTour.com) - ASA's member benefit agreement with Automotive Service Leaders, an industry-focused company that offers the AutoShop LifeLine program, TourAroundTour seminars and other events, as well as Web-based products, is designed to help independent automotive repair professionals stay successful.
The primary benefit for ASA members through this agreement is the 50 percent savings off the published price of LifeLine, a multifaceted program designed to assist shop owners in creating a "how to" manual for their business via webinar classes. LifeLine will complement and assist members in implementing what has been learned from past management training classes and events. Plus, no-travel-networking with other shop owners makes LifeLine a great member benefit.
Award-Winning Diagnostic Help
Identifix (www.identifix.com) - ASA members receive a discount on Identifix's pair of products - Direct-Hit and the Identifix Repair Hotline. Direct-Hit is Identifix's award-winning online diagnostic information service created from more than 3 million calls received through the Identifix Repair Hotline. Need a second opinion? The Identifix Repair Hotline has 37 factory-certified, ASE master technicians ready to give you a hand with just one phone call. Identifix has five diagnostic teams - GM, Ford, Chrysler, Asian and European - and seasoned professionals answer calls only on their carline specialty.
