Sonic provided for Holmes Honda was integrated tools and workstations, state-of-the-art design and standardization throughout the facility.
Sonic and Holmes Honda connected in the fall of 2017. Sonic was present every step of the way as Holmes Honda moved toward their new facility. Sonic completed the installation of brand-new workstations in the spring of 2018.
When Holmes Honda approached Sonic, the company’s chief concern was transitioning from an old, outdated facility to a modern, state-of-the-art one focused on efficiency in the workplace and technician hiring and retention.
THE ULTIMATE WORKFLOW
Keith Hightower, Vice President of Holmes Honda, says, “We’ve hired new technicians, and they’re here because of Sonic. They are happy. They have the tools they need; they know where the tools are, and we can account for the tools. It’s all a great process. It’s a win-win for everyone. Retention-wise, if a technician leaves, he’s going somewhere that doesn’t provide a setup that Sonic and we provide.”
The General Manager for Holmes Honda, Jason Sims, said, “The difference with Sonic is uniformity as well as the quality of the tools. The technicians feel like these are the highest quality tools they’ve used. The setup breeds more productivity, which drives the bottom line. We don’t worry about not having what we need.” He went on to address his experience with Sonic, “Out of our experience with Sonic, they’ve provided professionalism from sales team to installing and designing the product. The quality is premium. The service is premium, and I’d highly recommend Sonic and its services to anyone who’s considering changing tools, toolboxes, or cabinets throughout a dealership. You can make your brand more profitable and functional.”
