AutoAlert® Inc. Will Receive Two New Patents for Revolutionary Solution That Helps Auto Dealers Sell More Cars and Services to Existing Customers

Unique solution finds ‘red apple’ sales opportunities to increase vehicle sales,

better source in-demand trades, boost retention and drive service and parts sales

 

IRVINE, CA, October 19, 2011 – AutoAlert,® Inc., the innovator in providing data analytic and lead-generation solutions to auto dealers, said today it had received formal “notice of allowance” for two new U.S. patents.

 

AutoAlert enables auto dealers to uniquely create highly viable sales opportunities and sell more vehicles with higher gross profit, bring in late model trade-ins, and sell additional warranties and services to their existing customers, while improving customer retention and loyalty.

 

These third and fourth patents follow on Patent Number 8,005,752 issued Aug. 15, 2011 and Patent Number 7,827,099 issued Dec. 10, 2010. Each new patent addresses extended functionality of the AutoAlert solution and are currently referenced by the U.S. Patent Office as application numbers13/076,203 and 13/076,208. Jeff Cotton, AutoAlert co-founder, said additional patent applications are in process to ensure that the solution’s unique capabilities are commercially protected.

 

The AutoAlert solution identifies the automobile dealership’s existing customers whose vehicles and vehicle histories make those owners hot prospects for additional sales opportunities. It identifies customers whose vehicles fit certain sales criteria – equity position and mileage, lease termination and/or mileage, and market demand for trade-in offers, among other metrics.

 

Today’s new normal is about keeping the customer you already have, since the retail auto industry is characterized by lackluster sales growth, a scarcity of late model used vehicles, and rising customer expectations. AutoAlert is a powerful retention tool that helps to ensure longer lasting customer relationships that will convert to sustainable and repeatable sales opportunities.

 

“Dealers credit the patented AutoAlert solution for helping them ‘create a dealership within a dealership’ because it helps them identify and then sell up to several hundred extra units a month -- from existing customers alone,” said Boyd H. Warner, AutoAlert’s president and CEO.

 

In its 10th year of business, AutoAlert was the first company to offer dealership and enterprise business-intelligence software, support and training of its kind. More than 1,100 dealerships today have utilized the AutoAlert solution to be more competitive, improve their all-important customer retention, and help sales associates excel.

 

AutoAlert is a registered trademark of AutoAlert, Inc. ServiceAlert, MileageAlert, WarrantyAlert, ConquestAlert, MaintenanceAlert and FlexAlert are trademarks of AutoAlert, Inc. in the United States and/or other countries.
