In order to maintain their commitment to customer service, Girard Toyota looked to upgrade their outdated phone system. The antiquated system they were using was not only costly to maintain, but also inhibited their efficiency — inbound calls were not answered in a timely fashion, and when they were, the hold times were much too long.
Calls were not being transferred to the correct representatives, causing frustration for both new and existing customers. The entire customer experience was negatively impacted, threatening to cost the company revenue and its prized reputation for superior customer service.

Regulatory compliance is more than a series of rules to adhere to, and getting it right could save you time and money.
Historically, compliance has been regarded as a checklist of fixed requirements. But this reactive outlook risks being too short-sighted. It can lead to higher compliance costs, audit deficiencies, greater business downtime and an increased risk of data loss. Furthermore, it can lead to missed opportunities to achieve greater levels of operational effectiveness for your business.
The only way to achieve a greater level of operational efficiency is to adopt a proactive strategy and stay ahead of the compliance curve.
While many OEMs are aware of new technologies to make machines more energy-efficient, they are reluctant to make changes due to the perception that it will make their machines more expensive to sell.

This paper demonstrates how incorporating sustainable design can add value to their machines and differentiate OEMs from the competition.
Since the sepia-toned days of the early 19th century, industry has sought effective ways to control manufacturing and production processes. New technology has greatly influenced factories and plants, resulting in new operational approaches to maximize benefits and achieve 100% ROI in a very short time.
