AutoVerify, powered by Mobials Inc., is pleased to announce a new partnership with Auto Shield Canada aimed at helping automotive dealers increase profitability and finance and insurance (F&I) product penetration, and improve customer experiences and retention.
Through a consultative approach with dealers across Canada, Auto Shield Canada and their partner Your Warranty Team specialize in creating innovative protection products that suit the needs of both the dealer and the consumer.
Together, they have developed various comprehensive Road Hazard programs, a new Lease Wear and Trade Wear Protection program, next generation vehicle surface protection P2 Graphene Pure, and Financial Loss, Job Loss and Theft Protection Membership programs.
Auto Shield Canada products are now integrated into Spotlight, the free Digital Merchandising tool from AutoVerify. AutoVerify is a one-stop-shop for a dealership’s complete digital retailing and merchandising
needs. The AutoVerify Spotlight, Automotive Inventory Merchandising, Research, and E-Commerce offerings empower dealers to connect with online car shoppers by answering their pre-purchase questions instantly and providing the ability to build a “ready-to-desk” deal that is based on the car shopper’s verified credit information.
AutoVerify Spotlight was built to help automotive dealers generate more profit from their F&I departments by highlighting available aftermarket protection products and displaying vehicle value by showcasing features like SiriusXM availability, new listings, and rebates and incentives available from the OEM. Early adopters of AutoVerify Spotlight have reported how much pressure it removes from the dealership’s F&I Manager. This is accomplished by helping them avoid awkward conversations when trying to sell protection products to customers who have already calculated the cost of their vehicle without being introduced to these protection product options in advance. The product is free for all dealers, regardless of whether they have a paid subscription to other AutoVerify products.
Studies have shown that 63% of car shoppers are more likely to purchase F&I products if they were introduced earlier in the buying journey. By highlighting Auto Shield Canada products on dealership websites, AutoVerify Spotlight helps drive awareness of the protection and warranty products available for the vehicle the customer is considering. This increases the likelihood of that customer purchasing these products when the time comes to close the deal.
Don Miller, President at Auto Shield Canada says that “We are so proud to be delivering Protection Programs and Warranty options through AutoVerify. Now that we are integrated into AutoVerify Spotlight,
we can help dealers educate their customers by introducing our protection products earlier in the vehicle shopping process.”
Randy Kammerer, President at Your Warranty Team says, “Today’s automotive buyer needs to know that real protection is available earlier in the vehicle buying process. AutoVerify Spotlight is an incredible avenue to accomplish this.”
“We are very excited to be partnering with Auto Shield Canada,” says Marty Meadows, President at AutoVerify. “This partnership will help improve the consumer buying-journey by positively educating them about warranty options, it will help dealers sell more Auto Shield Canada products, and it will add value to AutoVerify Spotlight.”
AutoVerify Spotlight is free to dealers. For more information, please visit: https://www.autoverify.com/digital-merchandising
