CalAmp Introduces LotSmart by LoJack to Drive Long-Term Value for Automotive Dealerships
OREANDA-NEWS. September 19, 2016.
LotSmart offers automotive dealerships detailed access to an array of useful information about the status of their inventory, providing virtually complete control over their vehicle operations. This advanced enterprise-grade service is powered by
- Actively monitor vehicle inventory – Track the precise location of every vehicle across multiple lots. Enable dealership personal and sales professionals to quickly and easily locate a specific make and model, making the sales process more efficient.
- Provide real-time vehicle status – Receive and collect up-to-date diagnostic reporting on each vehicle so dealership personal can proactively identify issues such as low battery levels.
- Set virtual boundaries – Receive alerts on unexpected vehicle movement and help dealerships prevent unauthorized usage by setting up virtual boundaries using geo-fences. These alerts can also quickly identify lot theft and aid recovery by providing specific vehicle location coordinates.
Vehicle information is automatically transmitted to the LotSmart application from the plug-and-play telematics device, providing the dealership with access to extensive inventory management capabilities. When the vehicle is sold to the consumer along with SureDrive, these capabilities are extended and enhanced to provide consumers with a comprehensive connected car solution. This allows dealerships expand their offering to their customers and boost revenue.
"LoJack is committed to supporting dealer profitability while delivering enhanced security to consumers with this new offering," said
Justin Schmid, SVP and GM of Telematics Systems at
LotSmart is available for any dealership looking for an enterprise-grade solution to manage inventory while also seamlessly enabling a value-added sell through option for consumers who want an advanced connected car solution.
