Auto Profit Masters Announces Winners of the RPM ToolKit™ Challenge

LITTLETON, CO--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - Auto Profit Masters has announced the first quarter winners of the RPM ToolKit™ challenge. The contest pits mid- and upper-level RPM ToolKit users against each other, ranked by a point system akin to race track scoring.

For a complete list of the top 10 winners and their scores:

Shops and technicians must meet several criteria for these awards, including having accurate data. Service writers and technicians must have worked 90 percent of the days the shop was open during the contest period, January through March 2011. Over the three categories, points are based on average repair order, jobs written per repair order, closing ratio, average personal daily sales, average daily billed hours, technician efficiency, and parts/labor/total gross profit percentages.

"What this challenge has demonstrated is the high level of service and accountability being found in auto repair shops across the country," said David Rogers, the Monday Morning Mechanic and co-founder of Auto Profit Masters. "We know next quarter we'll see fierce competition for top honors because these auto shops are proud to be the absolute best in their work and their people."

First place service writer and technician winners will receive a pizza party for their shop, an embroidered RPM ToolKit shirt, a $200 VISA gift card and a certificate of achievement to display in the shop. The first place repair shop receives a pizza party, six RPM ToolKit shirts, three $100 VISA gift cards, six $50 VISA gift cards and a certificate of achievement. Second and third place winners in each category will receive an achievement certificate.
