A user makes a single click to move the car to it’s next designated step alerting those responsible next in line that the car is now ready for them to perform their task.
All recon steps are important but the order that a vehicle moves through recon does not need to be sequential. Steps may be skipped if not required or vehicles can be moved out of order to accommodate capacity issues. The Time-to-Market report properly accounts for the overall time. Each step may also be isolated to investigate the actual average time in step compared to expected or compared to previous time periods.
Each Rapid Recon™ system is custom designed to accommodate your existing workflow. Our Process Performance Managers are always available to help fine tune your system with suggestions and best practices used by the top performing dealerships to help you achieve maximum performance and the shortest Time-to-Market possible.
No, we do not push data back to your DMS as this could cause other unrelated problems. For this reason we have created an editable Notes section where you can summarize the estimate or edit templates that can be created. You can also copy and paste information from your service estimate work screen to easily summarize needed repairs for approval.
All vehicle information, including the Notes, is archived in our system for two years.
Once a car is sold, unless it is still in the active recon process, it automatically drops out of the system and all information is archived for two years. Any car can be pulled back from archive during this time. If a car is sold and still live in the recon process there is a character designation placed next to the stock number denoting that it is no longer seen in the DMS.
Yes, cars headed for wholesale are dropped directly into that step as soon as possible. Notifications can be sent to your auction rep, auction manager, transport company and anyone else to help move them as soon as they are ready.
An average system can be designed and installed within 10 business days. More complicated systems may take longer.
