When your Service Department employees attend NADA Academy, they may be expected to provide some Accounting information pertaining to their department. For example, they may be expected to provide a document reporting the total number of technicians, their hourly pay, and the average pay for the group.
To create this report, follow these steps:
|Important: If you do not have access to the Dealership Accounting module and its Payroll feature, a member of your dealership’s Accounting Department will have to run this report for you.|
Step 1. From the Dealership Accounting main menu, select Payroll.
Step 2. The Dealership Payroll menu will open. Click Reports.
Step 3. Select Payroll & Department Totals. This report provides payroll totals for each employee, as well as department totals. The Service Technician Department will be broken out at the end of the report.
Step 4. The Print Payroll Totals pop-up will allow you to set the starting and stopping point for the data pull. In the From fields, type the starting month and day; enter the ending month and day in the To fields.
Step 5. When the system prompts you to verify your printer is ready, select To Printer to print a hardcopy of the report, or To Screen to view a PDF version of the report on screen. Click Print.
The system will generate the report, which provides payroll totals for each employee, as well as department totals for the time period you specified when generating the report.
The Service Technician Department will be broken out at the end of the report. It will list each technician by Technician Number and include their hours worked and total pay. The report will then create department totals using those employee figures.
Step 6. During your NADA Academy training, you'll use the Service Technician information from the Payroll report to create a list of each employee and his or her hourly rate. You'll also need to total the number of technicians and calculate the average pay for the group.
