SAN FRANCISCO — izmocars today announced the launch of its AddOnAuto (AOA) Digital Dashboard platform for dealers currently using the company’s AOA Point of Sale software. The Digital Dashboard further streamlines accessories coordination across all departments in the dealership and supplier networks, according to the company.
“Dealerships using AddOnAuto are already seeing significant increases in accessories sales, but we knew that with even better communication between dealership departments throughout the accessories sales journey — from presentation to sale to parts order to installation — greater increases in revenue, profits and margins would be possible,” said Sidney Haider, vice president of izmocars. “This dashboard represents an industry first, as it creates a virtual bridge that connects sales departments to fixed operations, and dealerships to their suppliers. It also offers users across the dealership the ability to see and measure accessories sales performance in real time.”
AddOnAuto Digital Dashboard features:
• A Windows-based platform that communicates with AOA software, and offers access to performance metrics and alerts on any computer in the dealership where it is installed. The dashboard allows dealership management to view up-to-the-minute accessories sales performance by providing presentation ratios, closing ratios, accessories sales per unit, month-to-date total accessories sales, and even the average time sales staff spends on each accessories presentation.
• Sends alerts to each department as the sale moves through its stages. Managers are alerted about the sale for approval, while parts and service are alerted about the order and when a part needs to be ordered from a supplier. Additionally, accessories suppliers are alerted via the dashboard about dealership jobs, such as when a part needs to be shipped, and/or whether installation is required.
• The dashboard also fully coordinates with the recently launched Digital Dealer Supplier Network, which allows aftermarket suppliers to maintain their parts catalog for dealers in real-time with updates on parts, pricing and images on the network.
