SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Fidelis PPM today announced that its sister company, Vero, has partnered with financial services provider Allied Solutions to provide a new inventory merchandising and vehicle service contract program designed for independent dealers.

Together, Vero and Allied Solutions have launched the Dealership Advantage Program, a package designed to help dealers present fresher, more appealing inventory and deliver a better customer experience. Program features include a comprehensive package of Simoniz-branded vehicle protection and appearance services for all inventory at no charge.

Also offered at no additional charge is GlassCoat, Simoniz’s ceramic paint protection. The program also features vehicle service contract options from a range of industry-leading underwriters, as well as a VSC purchase incentive upgrading the ceramic paint protection to a seven-year warranty.

“Market pressure on used-car operators is considerable today, while competition for quality inventory is brisk,” said Vero CEO Joe Annoreno. “But dealers utilizing our Dealership Advantage Program help set apart their dealerships and vehicles as uniquely different and attractive to their customers.

Mark Ladd, vice president of Allied Solutions’ Automotive Service Group, added: “Now independent dealers can enjoy significant market advantages to separate their business and inventory from the competition. We believe this Dealer Advantage Program offers benefits that independent dealers will value while it enhances their competitiveness through a unique protection upgrade to trigger high-grade service contract purchases.”
