OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. — vAuto is helping dealer groups gain greater operational efficiency through a more holistic view of their used vehicle inventory across rooftops with Provision Enterprise, an all-new module within the Provision system, the company announced.
vAuto’s Provision was designed to offer dealer principals the most comprehensive used-vehicle market data and inventory management decisionmaking insights in the industry. With the Enterprise module, dealer principals and managers can more easily view and compare used vehicle inventory and metrics across individual rooftops and the group to identify opportunities to improve sales and profitability, said Randy Kobat, senior vice president of inventory software solutions for Cox Automotive’s Retail Solutions Group.
“In today’s margin-compressed environment, a dealership group can’t afford to compete against itself,” Kobat said. “With Provision Enterprise, dealer principals will be able to unify rooftops and seamlessly oversee inventory management across their stores from one single dashboard, creating a more cohesive data and insights hub to maximize inventory potential.”
Provision Enterprise was designed to drive increased efficiency and profitability potential across locations. Through this end-to-end approach, a dealership group’s rooftops will be better equipped to compete together as one enterprise — a necessity in today’s hypercompetitive used vehicle market, Kobat added.
“The Enterprise dashboard makes it a lot easier and more efficient to compare stores and identify opportunities to improve,” said Troy Idom, digital director for the four-store Natchez (Miss.) Auto Group. “It’s become a regular part of our weekly meetings with each store. Managers can see everything in black and white and know where they are and where they should be.”
vAuto will debut the Enterprise module as a no-cost enhancement for Provision dealers at the NADA convention in Las Vegas.
