Processes have to be done right to maximize efficiency and sustainability. Unlike sales and F&I, the service process can’t be fully completed remotely, but it can be done without the customer at the dealership during normal business hours. This creates some challenges:
When you arrive in the morning, you struggle to identify which keys in the drop box belong to which customer and what service is required.
You're forced to trade voicemails with the customer to get approval for work.
You have to leave a voicemail to let the customer know their vehicle is complete.
If the customer isn't able to pick up the vehicle before you close, you have to write down their credit card information and manually process it to accept the payment.
You have no opportunity to review the MPI from the service visit, so a paper copy is left in the vehicle for the customer to review later.
There’s a lot that goes into the service experience that can be hard to keep consistent and detailed.
Retail Anywhere is a dealership-wide approach that utilizes the Retail Management System, allowing dealerships to serve customers wherever they are – in-store, online, or both – without sacrificing what’s important to the dealership: control and profitability of the sale, accuracy of the transaction, and efficiency of its employees.
Control and Profitability of the Sale
Be present without the customer being in your waiting room through digital communications including multi-point inspections, videos, and photos for recommended services all while ensuring profit opportunities are presented every time.
Accuracy of the Transaction
Allow customers to schedule appointments using an online hub that contains all previous service history and pay for completed services using electronic invoices with embedded payment links.
