ProMax Unlimited, a full front end solution for automotive dealers, releases an inventory monitoring tool which tracks open recalls.
June 30, 2017 – Dealer Marketing Services, Inc., the makers of ProMax Unlimited recently announced the release of Recall Check, a new feature available within the ProMax platform. Recall Check monitors auto dealers’ entire inventory for open recalls via an automatic nightly process. Additionally, Recall Check performs a check for recalls whenever a trade is booked in or a vehicle is delivered. All recall information is tracked across several reports and available at the click of a button. “Recall Check gives our dealer customers a foolproof way to track all pertinent recall information and use it to generate service business and protect their dealership from liability” said ProMax CEO John Palmer.
ProMax’s Recall Check feature is powered by Recall Masters, the leading provider of automotive recall news, data, training, and communications. Recall Masters draw on a comprehensive Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) database. Recall checks in ProMax are performed on the auto dealers’ entire inventory nightly, and are also done automatically whenever dealers book in trades. “Recall Check is fully integrated into the ProMax system” said ProMax CTO Darian Miller. “It happens automatically on the Trade Screen and on all inventory via daily monitoring, but it’s also available when booking in Inventory, or from any pertinent deal screen in our award-winning Desking suite. The Open Recall Report and Compliance Review Report make all facets of recall information easy to access and use. This is another example of our long history of listening to customer requests and unifying other typically disjointed products into one cohesive ProMax Unlimited package.”
“As the automotive market evolves, Recall Masters is continually evolving our systems and database to provide the most valuable information possible to promote sound dealership business initiatives and consumer safety” said Christopher Miller, CEO Recall Masters, Inc. “The integration with ProMax’s Recall Check feature allows their customers to easily access unique recall data and information through the existing ProMax workflow. ProMax dealers can focus on efficiently managing recalls and attending to the needs of consumers through a familiar, proven platform. The partnership with ProMax is one more step in the right direction to ensure consumer safety and to mitigate the risk of automotive-related injuries.”
Accurate recall data can prove useful to automotive dealers for many reasons, even beyond the core issues of compliance, customer service, and safety. “Recall Check is a tool that can be leveraged in a number of ways” said ProMax COO Shane Born. “The automatic monitoring ensures that all recall information is available; dealers can craft different strategies based on their local laws and individual prerogatives. Savvy dealers can use Recall Check to better evaluate trades, book in inventory, or funnel customers to their service lane in some instances. There are also options to print recall disclosure forms on sold vehicles. It has everything a dealer needs. There are a lot of possibilities”.
