ATLANTA, March 23, 2016 – Cox Automotive™ today announced it is bringing together Dealertrack® and Dealer.com® with MakeMyDeal®, the innovative online deal-making platform, to deliver a powerful and comprehensive Digital Retailing solution. The combination of these products will allow consumers and retailers to safely and securely start and agree to deal terms online, then smoothly transition to in-store to finalize the deal and deliver the vehicle.
The Digital Retailing solution integrates MakeMyDeal into Dealertrack’s secure credit application and its Sales and F&I portal. This enhancement will allow consumers to quickly, easily and securely submit a credit application through the dealership’s website after coming to agreement on the terms of a deal. Dealership personnel can then work the deal in-store through the Dealertrack Sales and F&I portal, the Digital Retailing Showroom app, and with CRMs, such as the VINSolutions CRM.
“Dealers will benefit by giving shoppers a more robust online to in-store experience, all while maintaining control of the deal and improving upon their workflow efficiencies,” said Mike Burgiss, vice president, Digital Retailing, Cox Automotive. “Our vision is to enable the success of retailers in the evolution from digital marketing to digital deal-making, and onto the ultimate stage – the digital transaction.”
MakeMyDeal will also be incorporated into the Dealer.com Websites solution as part of several enhancements to be announced soon, that will make the website experience more engaging, secure and efficient.
Available beginning April 1, dealers will be able to view demonstrations of the integrated solutions at the Dealertrack and Dealer.com booth at the National Automotive Dealers Association Convention & Exposition (NADA 2016), March 31-April 3, 2016, in Las Vegas (Booth #1124C). Please visit us online to schedule a demonstration and add Digital Retailing to your dealership’s website.
