Locating Vehicles On Car Dealerships
One of the biggest concers for car dealerships around the United States is being able to quickly locate a vehicle on the car lot and then at the same time being certain that vehicle is ready to be shown to customers. Naturally, any vehicle on a car lot is clean and mechanically sound, but with potential buyers taking vehicles for test drives and possibly leaving a light on inside the vehicle, there is a chance a automobile on a car lot could be short on gas or have a battery that is low. Nothing could be more embarrassing than putting a potential buyer into their dream vehicle than that same vehicle not starting because of a dead battery or because the car has an empty fuel tank. Well maybe one thing could be more embarrassing and that is not being able to find that vehicle on a car lot! Thankfully, one piece of technology is changing that thanks in large part to GPS vehicle tracking!
GPS Synchronize Location Technology
The device that was engineered to solve many of the problems facing car dealerships is a tool known as the SilverCloud Sync. What the tracker does is pretty simple: it allows a car dealership to locate every one of their vehicles on a car lot, determine if vehicles are low on fuel, measure battery life and more. The GPS vehicle trackers can even be programmed to send out an alert if an automobile on a car lot is moved off the lot, which is a fantastic tool for preventing car theft. Sync technology works by a car dealership simply plugging the tracker into any vehicle on the lot via the On Board Diagnostic port of the car. The tracker system is then able to pull diagnostic data from the car as well as real-time locational information. All of the tracking and location data can then be viewed on a computer or mobile phone, making it easy for a car dealer to locate a vehicle on the lot and observe diagnostic information.
“What we have found is that not only is the technology helpful for internal management purposes, but the tracking solutions can also be a great after market accessory for the buyer to purchase”, explained a car dealership in the Northern Illinois region. “We have found that many buyers love to utilize the live vehicle monitoring for theft-recovery, teenage driving safety or simply a form of roadside assistance.”
According to the manufacturer of the Sync vehicle tracker, more and more car dealerships are investing in the device for internal vehicle management and as well as a accessory product to offer customers.
