Is Customer Dissatisfaction Costing You Thousands in Lost Sales?
Software tracks car deliveries from your desktop, ELIMINATES Customer Wait Time and Improves Customer Satisfaction.
Dear Auto Sales Manager,
The relationship between you and your customers is cemented with the delivery of their new vehicle. It is extremely critical that the delivery be smooth and to the customer’s complete satisfaction. No matter what size your dealership…
Whether you deliver 10, 50 or several hundred cars a month, you need to stay on top of this. The easier and smoother you make this process, the better for both you and your customer satisfaction.
A little over three years ago a friend of mine, Glenn, purchased a new car. When he arrived at the dealership to pick up his new car on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, the car was not ready.
Two and a half hours later, his car was finally ready to go -- he was livid! Now he doesn’t just take his frustration out on the salespeople, but the Sales Manager and Owner, too.
Imagine for a moment if you will, your waiting room is full of customers patiently waiting to take possession of their new cars. You look around the room, you can see and sense the level of frustration on their faces and in the air. The tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife. It isn’t a pretty sight. They are looking to blame someone for this poor service!
You have to face the music and go make some lame excuse. If only you could find a good explanation for their car not being ready at the promised time… But, you know they will dump their frustration on you, so you avoid it.
Your new car delivery process isn’t hitting on all cylinders. Ask yourself this, “Just where did my system break down?”
Do you really have control over the scheduling of cars at your dealership? Probably not.
Yes, believe it or not, some dealerships are using a paper list. The sales people write in some basic information about the cars that need detailing. The list disappears back into the detailing area. Now the only way to know what is going on is to wander away from the showroom floor to check on your cars.
On average salespeople spend 30 minutes or more chasing down their cars for delivery. Non-selling time. They don’t make money with such mundane tasks and neither does the dealership.
Are Your Salespeople Where They Need To Be?
Just where are your salespeople? Not on the showroom floor where they need to be? Maybe they’re back in the prep department or the service department checking on their cars? Is all of
this hassle really necessary? Maybe its time that you change the way things work. Maybe it’s time to find a solution that really works for you and your sales team.
Some dealerships have sort of automated the process. The sales person fills out a “Get Ready” request that now goes back to the service department where they schedule it for detailing. Control is still out of your hands, but at least now when there is a screw up you can blame the service area. Little consolation for your customers. Is this the kind of tracking that you need to keep your customers satisfied? Have you really solved your problem? Or did your problem just get re-located?
Customer Dissatisfaction Spreads Like Wildfire Costing You Thousands In Lost Sales
Dissatisfied customers tell an average of 10 other people about their bad experience. With the power of the Internet, the "Bad Experience" can be delivered to countless thousands with ease. How many referrals do you think you are getting out of this? They’re even telling everyone in your waiting room about the delay…
Are you letting the Bad Experience get out of hand?
Just think about it. Just who is in charge when customer satisfaction gets out of hand? Are you behind the wheel of your delivery operation? If only you could pull it over to the curb and make the process work for you instead of against you.
Will Your Customers Go Someplace Else For Their Next Purchase?
As you are scanning over this letter, you are beginning to see that something serious needs to be done about this critical step in the sales process. How many repeat customers are you losing? It’s hard enough to get a new customer. Why lose the one you already have?
How one company SAVES 250 MAN-HOURS per month
A local Chevrolet Dealership had a management and time problem on their hands. Their sales staff was wasting over 250 hours each and every month. We developed a car dealer software scheduling system for them to track a specific process and now they run more efficiently. This dealership is so worried about their competition that they won’t even let me use the name of the dealership or management in my testimonials.
They don't want anyone to know their SECRET WEAPON.
The money saved is like having one additional salesperson on staff at no extra cost.
Ask yourself this, “What could an additional salesperson add to your sales bottom line?” If the average salesperson sells just 10 cars per month, that's roughly $280,000 in sales. On an annual basis that works out to $3,360,000. That's a lot of clams.
Do you have a good handle on how much time is wasted? We've done some research into a typical dealerships figures and have come up with the table below. On average salespeople say they spend 30 minutes or more each day in their prep department looking for their customers’ cars. While these numbers may not be representative of your dealership, they are credible.

Here’s what some of our existing customers are saying (they don’t want us to use their names because they don't want their competition to know they are using this SECRET WEAPON):
"The major frustration [before
using this system] was finding out
when the car was done and trying to
track and make sure that the keys were
found. The list we had was a paper
list, and that would be given to the
head of the cleanup department and we could never know
where they stood with that list.
He would line it out over at his station,
but our management on this side would
never know what's going on, nor would
the service manager. So, new car didn't
know what's going on, the service manager
didn't know what's going on, unless
they walked over to that building."
"But, with this system, with this software, now we can all go
on the computer, the salesman, rather
than having to go and write it down,
or maybe the salesman would even cross
out other peoples names on there... can
you imagine that, and put their name
ahead. So, with this, they can enter
it, when they want it.
If it's a dealer
trade, they can alert the wash rack that it is a dealer trade, that
if the keys aren't found, the wash
rack can tell the salesman and the sales manager, we can't find the
keys or we can't find the car.
with one click you're on the screen
and you can tell what's going on there
as far as the manager. You may need,
as you fall behind, you might get a
porter from another department and
get him over there to help, before
somebody else goes on over, or at the
end of the day, the sales manager can
look there, who's in charge of staffing
that department, and he can know that
he needs more people there to start
in the morning to help clean up."
"I've been selling cars for close to
ten years at actually three major dealerships.
Every dealership I worked at before
has had just a basic write-up service,
where you hand wrote your information
for actual delivery of vehicles. This
new automated system online, allows
us to make changes to the vehicle,
and status of delivery, if anythings wrong with delivery,
everythings hands on, rather than verbal communication, they can just look
at the actual web page and find out if any problems are occurring.
It helps expedite the process itself,
a real good system."
Car Salesman, New & Used Car Sales,
"Hi, what I like
about Auto Scheduler Advantage is the
convenience that we have with getting
our clean-up process streamlined and
we can change it immediately, adjust
it immediately. It's been a real time
saver for us!"
"We were using a paper based system and it was really confusing
when we would have to re-schedule a car and the schedule became unreadable.
We've been embarrassed more than a few times by losing a car from the
list… With Auto Scheduler Advantage, we have eliminated all of
- J Tucker, GM Dealer, Milwaukee, WI
"Hi, with this new Auto
Scheduler it was basically a new
way of life for us. Instead of the
old paper system we actually have
something that we were able to build
a whole new way of life or a new process
with something that was organized
and very helpful. Now we can see
where we are at any given time,
any given moment. We can communicate
back and forth... all the advantages
that we never had with the paper
system, and people writin' it down
in the new car department and walking
it over to another building... the
prep department. "

and cleans up cars, you cannot do without

"The advantage I like with this here
is the system helps us communicate with the salesmen and
know whats' going on... at all times."

About my friend Glenn that I mention at the beginning of this letter: As it turns out -- the paper based prep schedule was missing... Would you think that in this age of high-tech solutions, an auto dealership would be using a paper-based system for such an important part of the delivery process?
He’s getting ready to by a new car. You’ve probably already guessed, He’s not going back to that dealership. You know what you need to do to keep your customers coming back.
