The Challenge

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.

The Solution

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.
