izmocars Releases AddOnAuto 3.0: Faster, Better, and Generating Millions of Dollars in Accessories Sales for Dealers

All new interface increases speed, performance and usability; enhances image visualization and provides multiple customization/personalization options

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- izmocars (www.izmocars.com), a leading Internet business solutions provider for the auto retailing industry, today released AOA 3.0, a completely upgraded version of AddOnAuto (AOA), the dealership accessories solution that is generating millions of dollars in accessories sales gains each month for dealerships across the country.

The AOA 3.0 upgrades are all designed to further enhance the consumer accessories purchase experience and to make the product even more intuitive for dealership personnel, including a completely new interface, built from the ground up, for increased speed, performance and usability; multiple customization options, including custom skins and more colors; dynamic and heightened vehicle and accessory image views, and more granular product and category details.

"Dealers using AOA tell us that it has literally revolutionized accessory sales – and profit gains - in their dealerships," said izmocars President Tej Soni.  "AOA's rich accessories visualization has dramatically increased the number of consumers who purchase accessories from 1 in 10 to 1 in 2. With this new AOA release, we are taking the accessories purchase experience to the next level, making visualization even more immediate, robust, detailed and dynamic for consumers – all while adding greater speed, customization and more user-friendly options for dealers.  Our goal is simple:  inspire every customer to purchase accessories and enable every dealer to rev up profits with easy, hassle-free accessory sales."

izmocars' AOA provides a seamless consumer experience by integrating accessories shopping and financing with the car purchase, while making it very easy for dealers to launch an accessories sales business by eliminating the need to carry physical inventory.

Kirk Spencer of Burien Toyota of Burien, Washington, is just one dealer who has seen skyrocketing accessory sales and profits almost immediately after implementation of AOA.  "We didn't think this product could get any better: we went from $5,000 to $20,000 per month in accessory sales in just 45 days after implementing AOA…and we went to $50,000 the next month! With AOA 3.0, we're excited about how much further we can go!" said Spencer.  "Amazingly, we have both expanded and simplified the accessories sales process with AOA. And, because AOA makes it easy to explain accessories and provides something in every budget range, customers are excited and want to look at accessories options, our sales staff is having fun selling accessories – and, bottom line, we are all thrilled with the profits!"
