Store Visits

According to DealerSocket data, more than 80% of a store’s success is based on how many appointments are set, whether for service or sales. Check out our Eight Secrets to Maximize Your CRM Investment for more information.

Compared to appointments from internet leads, fresh ups, and phone ups, equity mining appointments in 2016 – 2018 had a higher sold rate. Additionally, the rate of vehicles sold to store visits is higher for equity mining compared to other sources.

RevenueRadar is DealerSocket’s robust equity mining solution. It’s designed to identify sales and service opportunities in the customer database.

Repairs

Armed with a real-time data solution delivering focused marketing intelligence, a service BDC can deliver increased labor hours, ROs, and, most importantly, revenue. For more information, review The Impact of a Service BDC paper.

The percentage of repair orders with an appointment set has increased steadily among DealerSocket dealerships in recent years, from 9% in 2016 to 22% in 2018. Setting a future appointment at the end of a customer’s service visit represents a great opportunity to retain customers and keep the service lane full, yet only 4% of repair orders in 2018 were closed with a future service appointment set.

With robust products such as Service Management and Service Scheduler, DealerSocket helps dealerships manage fixed ops performance with a centralized view of all metrics that lead to increased revenue and customer satisfaction.

“We Are Automotive” means a deep appreciation for the rich history of the car business and celebrating the entrepreneurship of today’s modern dealer. It’s not about what we want or think; it’s about helping dealers achieve their sales and profit objectives while enabling showroom innovation.
