Dealership Accessories Sales Success Featured in DrivingSales Innovation Guide
Case study featuring Acton Toyota, Falmouth Toyota and izmocars AOA selected for DrivingSales Executive Summit
San Francisco, CA – September 27, 2010 -- izmocars (www.izmocars.com), the leading business solutions provider for the automotive industry, today announced that a case study including the company’s AddOnAuto (AOA) product has been selected, from dozens of submissions, by a panel of dealers to be featured in the DrivingSales Innovation Guide (www.drivingsales.com/innovation). The case study details the dramatic success two dealerships, Acton Toyota and Falmouth Toyota, have had using a new process for accessories sales. The case study is one of only two to be selected from the Innovation Guide to be featured as a live presentation / breakout session at the 2010 DrivingSales Executive Summit in October.
“We are proud that the success these two innovative dealerships are having - in what used to be one of the most challenging dealership departments - is receiving so much attention: Acton and Falmouth are truly leading lights in our industry,” said Mike Martinez, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, izmocars. “And we are doubly proud that our AOA solution and best practices have contributed to their success.”
AddOnAuto is an in-store accessory sales solution that enables dealers to dramatically increase accessory sales. AOA creates a seamless consumer experience by integrating accessories shopping and financing with the car purchase, making it very easy for dealers to get into accessories sales by eliminating the need to carry physical inventory or contract with 3rd-party resellers and installers.
