WALTHAM, Mass. — DealerRater has partnered with vAuto to integrate its dealer reviews into vAuto Genius Labs’ AutoVisor product, a vehicle validation tool.
Through this partnership, more than one million car dealer reviews are integrated and accessible in the AutoVisor tool. AutoVisor also integrates with other leading data sources, including AutoTrader.com, CARFAX and Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
“With this integration, AutoVisor reports now provide immediate access to the largest online resource of dealer reviews, which helps car buyers gain greater confidence that they’ve found a dealer dedicated to quality customer service,” said Chip Grueter, DealerRater president.
Powered by vAuto’s Live Market View technology, dealers can generate real-time AutoVisor reports with a single click when a customer indicates interest in a vehicle, either online or in the showroom. Each on-demand report details the car’s condition/mileage, reviews and specifications; compares the car and its price with similar units in the market; and highlights customer reviews and testimonials about the dealership.
Auto dealers will be able to showcase three DealerRater reviews in an AutoVisor report, including a direct link to the dealer’s review page on DealerRater.com.
“In addition to knowing they’ve got the right car and the right price, today’s consumers want to know they’re doing business with a good dealer,” says Todd Kinzle, director of operations for vAuto Genius Labs. “The AutoVisor integration with DealerRater provides the trusted customer reviews and testimonials that help dealer sales teams consistently and effectively echo the ‘why buy with us?’ value proposition consumers look for online.”
