Toronto, ON and Rochester Hills, MI - Dealer-FX, the leading customer experience management platform for dealers and OEMs, said dealers using ONE Platform, its mobile service technology suite, report more engaged customers who spend more dollars with them across their entire ownership experience.
ONE Platform is comprised of seven hardware and software components which together manage the entire service experience, from initial Connection through Scheduling, curbside Check-In, Inspection, mobile Check-Out and Retention marketing. An intuitive set of dealer-facing tools, Total Service Management, gives dealership employees real-time visibility into the whole process, so they can easily plan, adjust and communicate both internally and externally to ensure expectations are properly set and met.

Dealers using ONE Platform deliver a demonstrably better experience to their service customers and simultaneously drive improvements in all the metrics dealers care about. Our mobile applications help create an enduring bond with customers, starting at the sales-to-service handoff, and nurtures those relationships well into the highly profitable post-warranty ownership years, said Dealer-FX President and CEO, Gary Kalk.
OEMs and their dealers using Dealer-FX report the kind of performance results that leave no doubt about ONE Platforms ability to increase service lane volume, repair order dollars and customer retention, Kalk said. In a world of heightened consumer expectations, churning ROs doesnt lead to long-term business success. Instead you need tools and processes that build consumer trust, which translates into highly profitable long-term relationships, he said.
