In-car internet service provider Autonet Mobile has added new features to its connected car technology to support fleet and dealership operations.
Here’s what’s new: Improved inventory monitoring capabilities now allow dealership and fleet management to view all of their connected vehicles on one map, track mileage in real-time and see the driver behaviors – such as acceleration and braking habits – that may lead to increased wear and tear. Additionally, three new Lot Tracker reports are available to view current inventory information at a glance.
“One of the many facets that dealers and consumers love about Dealer Connect is vehicle monitoring,” said Autonet Mobile CEO Greg O’Neill. “In addition to service and sales opportunities for dealers, car owners who subscribe to Autonet Mobile will find it much easier to keep their cars in good running condition and track how their vehicles are driven.”
Consumers who choose to subscribe to Autonet Mobile in the F&I booth can immediately benefit from enhanced monitoring of their connected vehicles, including knowing the immediate location of all of their connected cars, vehicle speeds and driver habits.
The automated service appointment feature also offers the potential for increased service retention by allowing dealers to send notifications for deals, service reminders and recalls.
