What’s the most important thing you’re looking for in your automotive repair facility today? Some might say more customers, some might answer faster technicians, some might say higher repair orders.

His guest is Eric Turkington, Vice President of Growth at Ortho, creators of shop-specific artificial intelligence resources.
