Rapid Recon announces the release of these key features designed to keep you and your team in the know and communicating efficiently using the industries latest tech.
Communication is key, so don’t leave your vendors in the dark. The industry’s most agile vendor management tool automatically keeps you and your vendors in sync to produce the right repair at the right time.
The T2L (Time to Line) Metric follows the Dealers money and measures ALL steps, from acquisition to frontline ready.
The ADR (Average Days in Recon) Metric focuses on just the reconditioning touch points so that the recon team can get measurable data and thereby manage it and have a process of continuous improvement.
Based on the results from over 10,000 Users, Dealerships and Dealer Groups and 5 million vehicles through recon, Rapid Recon maintains that a Dealer’s T2L should stay under 5-days, and without a Rapid Recon system, most dealers are between 10 to 12 days.
Trent’s analysis showed that getting vehicles through reconditioning and to the sales line three days faster increased sales gross by $291,951. Getting to a three-day ADR (Average Days in Recon) grows that to $399,446
“Our team has fully embraced the system. Using Rapid Recon with its mobile app is like playing hot potato – nobody wants to be responsible for holding up the process. We’re certainly seeing how its use is increasing turn and improving grosses for Kelley Automotive Group”
If your team is still using a spreadsheet, whiteboard, or your fingers, to track and manage reconditioning, your process leaks time and money that’s wrecking retail gross and inventory turn.
GMs who create recon time-to-market cultures influence the biggest profit drive in the dealership. Learn what hundreds of general managers already know, you can’t improve what you can’t measure.
Drive down recon costs. With Rapid Recon automation technology, you can get vehicles frontline ready in four to five days – not 10 to 12.
Everyone on your staff can manage your recondition on the fly. When someone completes their work they move the vehicle into the next step with a click of a button, automatically generating a text or email notification to the next person(s) in line alerting them the car is now ready for their attention. Notes can be added too!
You always know exactly where the vehicle is, who has it and for how long. This dramatically lowers confusion and uncertainty, which in turn, makes everyone more productive.
All of your devices will sync smoothly with either the desktop or mobile applications, and will run on all devices whether Apple, Android or Windows operating systems.
We sell over 700 used cars a month. Tracking these vehicles through the reconditioning process has always been a task that is very difficult to deal with. With a dealership our size, Rapid Recon helped us manage the process. With the software that Rapid Recon has provided for us, we can find out where cars are at and at which step of the process. Finding out how fast their getting to the frontline has been terrific because in today's age of used car sales it's about speed to the frontline.
We have been using Rapid Recon for quite a while and it has been a game changer for us. We use it at about 80% of its capacity and it is instrumental in coordinating 200 plus cars a month, for two stores, from multiple sources, in multiple locations at all times. We can track total days in recon, see where items get stuck, and quickly fix the problem. It works with our DMS and across multiple computer and table/smartphone platforms.
