|Autobase, Inc. delivers Equity Alerts for auto dealers|
May 4th 2010 - |
Indianapolis, IN., May 4, 2010 - Autobase, Inc., the premier provider in automotive CRM for auto dealers nationwide and a division of Dominion Dealer Solutions, today announced the release of Equity Alerts.
Equity Alerts provides auto dealers with the ability to mine their data for qualified customers who, with no money down, could lower their payment and get into a newer vehicle today. The automated process considers the current value of each vehicle, calculates payoff (while considering refundable items), identifies term and rate based on buyer preference and history, and factors in all current rebates and incentives against the dealership’s current inventory. The result is an intelligent reporting of which customers are in potential equity situations within the dealer’s acceptable profit structure.
“We are constantly encouraging our dealers to ‘attack their database’ and uncover the wealth of business opportunity that resides in it,” stated Bryan Anderson, founder and general manager of Autobase. “Equity Alerts automates this process beautifully, serving up the kind of leads that any salesperson would jump through hoops to work.”
John Hardacre, director of product at Autobase, remarked, “Dealers are always looking for stronger leads and stronger lead follow-up. Now, as daily opportunities are uncovered by Equity Alerts in Autobase, the CRM also cues meaningful communication to each customer. Be it through a personal call from the salesperson, a video email, a digital web ad, or any number of permission-based marketing messages, the customer can be made aware of his equity position almost immediately. This is real marketing power.”
Beyond mining sales data, Equity Alerts leverages service information to flag users when new service appointments are set and new repair orders are opened for equity customers. This provides the timely notification needed when equity customers and potential buyers may be sitting in the dealership.About Autobase, Inc.
