NABR CEO Richard Valenzuela and President, Sam Valenzuela will present the VRS technology as the much-needed solution to the collision repair industry's stagnant labor rate problem. Through the VRS 5-Step Solution, attendees will learn how to utilize the VRS online tools to properly set labor rates for their individual shop, based on the competitive environment; their shop's cost of doing business; the shop's profit goals; and the shop's level of training, certifications, and investment in equipment and technology. In short, shops will learn how the VRS helps them get paid what they're worth and earn the profits they need.
"We are overjoyed with the opportunity to bring the VRS Workshop to Texas,” said Richard Valenzuela, CEO of NABR. “The urgency for shops to properly price their labor could not be greater than it is right now. The great news is that they can use the VRS today to make an immediate impact to their own rates and the overall prices in their markets.”
