EFG Companies Recommends a Value-Driven Focus to Drive Revenue

Amid market opportunities and volatility, EFG Companies recommends a value-driven focus to drive revenue.

EFG Companies sees several market opportunities in the second half of 2022 for the retail automotive, powersports, and financing and insurance (F&I) industries but recommends caution due to market volatility, continued supply chain and product inventory issues, and challenges to consumer financial strength. Company leaders recommend that dealer principals, agents and lenders approach the remainder of the year strategically focused on implementing customer-first sales methods, optimizing inventory with value-driven products, and implementing training to ensure employee effectiveness and regulatory compliance.

“While there are many factors at play, smart business owners will stay strategically focused on those tasks which align with the needs of consumers while advancing their businesses in post-COVID sales models,” said Eric Fifield, chief revenue officer with EFG Companies. “The new normal is now, and consumers have clearly shown how they want to do business. Regardless of how economic factors play out, there remain numerous opportunities for revenue in the remainder of 2022.”

Fifield and other executives from EFG Companies emphasized that consumers continue to look for added value in their automotive and powersports purchases.
