Automotive dealers and managers are at a disadvantage when it comes to vendor selection and integration. For many, the process of integrating multiple pieces of technology to best serve their dealership process is burdensome.
In contrast, outside the automotive industry, companies like Apple Computer and Salesforce.com seem to have found a way to best serve their customers. Apple has delivered a wonderful executable (iPhone and iPad) and opened it up for others to build great software, without restrictions, and that makes the masses loyal to Apple.
In this session, David Metter, President, Automotive at Hooklogic, will share how successful dealers and multiple solutions providers are working together to integrate multiple pieces of technology in order to sell more cars and service. David will discuss open architecture, API usage, and integration — all for the good of the dealership and its personnel. He will use the “Genius Bar” specialist analogy and truly have fun and deliver a robust message to the attendees. David Metter is sharing his expertise with you.
What will you learn and what action items will you take back to the dealership?
1. How to leverage existing technology providers and deliver a great executable to sell and service more customers.
2. How to allow Internet managers and dealers to focus their time and energy on selling cars.
3. How to lower a dealer’s cost per sale and raise market share.
