One of the most vital steps in the transition from traditional power steering service to EPS rebuilding and repair is education. Both shop owners and technicians need to understand the ins and outs of EPS in order to service the new units coming into the shop as well as manage the business effectively. However, that education can be difficult to find without the right partners and resources at hand. In order to fully prepare your team to service EPS, you need the right training.
In order to do what's best for your power steering business, it's sometimes necessary to make an investment in your team and your process. The future of power steering is undeniably in EPS and the autonomous technologies that will come with this shift in the industry, and in order for your business to stay in the game, you need to make the transition as well. While there are many changes that come with this transition, the associated costs are necessary to secure a future for your shop, and the sooner you create a plan for taking them on, the better. In this post, we'll discuss the types of expected costs of transitioning to EPS and how to plan for them.
