“You can’t just keep doing what works one time, everything around you is changing. To succeed, stay out in front of change.” – Sam Walton

Whoop-and-holler voice lines, inventory card systems, dumb terminals, and fax machines have completely run their course and are no longer in use in the modern automotive recycling industry. Our industry now embraces computerized yard management systems, data-sharing platforms, email, and messaging services. We have come a long way from those days of manual systems. These advancements have enabled our industry to buy and sell more, reach more buyers, and move much faster – no one will deny that fact. However, how soon did you adopt each of these tools?

Do you feel overwhelmed with the sheer volume of technology that is being offered to our industry? Have you ostracized yourself from change due to the complexity of many of these new tools?

“…..if you’re not flexible, you’ll pound your head against the wall, and you won’t see a different solution to a problem you’re trying to solve.” – Jeff Bezos
