CAR-Research XRM Launches AutoDesk Automated Rates & Residuals Program

CAR-Research XRM Launches AutoDesk: Automated Rates & Residuals Program Provides Auto Dealers All Automotive Incentive Information in Simple, Integrated Format

 

Houston, Texas, September 20, 2011CAR-Research XRM, a single-source CRM solution uniquely branded as; “XRM, Exceeding CRM”, today announced the launch of AutoDesk, a new automated Rates and Residuals program. It enables CAR-Research XRM auto dealer clients to work deals with accurate numbers by providing real time updated lease rates, residuals, manufacturer incentives and rebates, which automatically populate into the CAR-Research Desking tool.

AutoDesk organizes and optimizes the best combination of incentives that can be 'stacked together' to give sales managers the best possible deal scenario.  This data is electronically analyzed to provide optimum program combinations following compatibility logic for each transaction type. AutoDesk is so advanced in its design that it even takes into account OEM Affinity Programs such as “Manufacturer Employee Purchase” or "College Grad" Programs, automatically disallowing rebate programs that are not compatible.  

 

AutoDesk provides and displays a menu of all financial institutions that a dealer does business with, which includes payment and gross information for all available terms. Auto dealers will now benefit by instantly seeing all payment options based on the various deal transaction scenarios, using Manufacturer retail supported rates, bank retail financing, manufacturer supported leases, and more. 

 

“One of the most time consuming processes with desking a deal is structuring all of the transaction scenarios to determine the best payment – this new system provides the answers in seconds. It provides dealers what they have needed for years.” stated Kurt Kubicki, VP of Marketing for CAR-Research XRM.

 

The new system includes data provided by AIS Rebates, the Industry leader in Rebate and Incentive management, and will provide “Transactable” Incentive Delivery. Which means that dealers can now simply select all programs available to a particular customer: the new system powered by AIS Rebates will determine the optimum program selection for each deal scenario and deliver the results.    

            “Finally, dealers can feel confident about structuring a deal that really provides the best payment for the consumer AND may provide dealer profit opportunities not normally considered.  Dealer personnel no longer need to be worried about programs rejecting because of incompatabilities – Car Research and AIS Rebates guarantee the results,” said Patrick Kelly, Senior Vice President with Car-Research XRM. 

 

CAR-Research has developed a proven singular solution that helps an auto dealership run more effectively and proficiently. It is a web-based, comprehensive CRM solution that helps increase revenue from sales and service, improve customer satisfaction index (CSI) and service satisfaction index (SSI), and boost the dealership’s gross profit. A dealership can consolidate all its departments into a manageable solution that delivers value through proven processes at every stage of the customer life cycle.
