CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Market Scan Information Systems, Inc., the industry-leading automotive data and solutions provider, today introduced two new digital retailing solutions packages, mDrive SYNC and mDesking 360, along with a new mobile app for its popular mDrive product. These products will debut at the National Automotive Dealers Association (NADA) show in Las Vegas.
“Our new products empower automotive retailers to dramatically streamline their online and showroom processes for their customers,” said Market Scan President and Co-Founder, Rusty West. “With our new solutions, dealers can provide their customers a much enhanced experience while realizing their own business objectives. These new technologies continue our tradition of providing state-of-the-art solutions, while also supporting our mission to evolve automotive commerce by combining science, technology and data to transform the industry.”
mDrive SYNC provides Dealerships the ability to control Consumers' Automotive Retail Experience
In an era of online vehicle shopping, consumers expect a “see it, buy it” experience. Frustration ensues – and sales are lost – when the payment that a consumer is quoted while shopping online does not match what he or she is quoted at the dealership. Contributing to this dealer challenge, online marketplaces have not integrated the terms and conditions under which the dealer is willing to do business. This creates friction within the car buying process for consumers and dealerships. Market Scan cures this with its new suite of products.
Market Scan’s new mDrive SYNC provides a portal where dealerships can control their entire online presence and payment quoting process. This eliminates the current disconnect between the payment quotes a shopper receives online and those quoted to them in the showroom.
“In addition to the powerful portal,” West continued, “our new mDrive SYNC accurately answers the consumer’s age-old question: ‘What Can I Drive?’ mDrive SYNC instantly provides the consumer and the dealer’s sales team an exact list of the dealer’s qualifying inventory – based on science. All of the vehicles on that list meet both the consumer’s requirements and all of the dealer’s terms and conditions for transacting! Selling cars now and into the future will be more about a connected ecosystem. Consumers will expect car dealerships to create a cohesive retail experience both on/offline. mDrive SYNC now makes that possible for any dealership.”
mDesking 360 is an All-Encompassing Digital Retailing Solution
The most comprehensive digital retailing solution in the industry is Market Scan’s new mDesking 360. It combines the power of mDrive SYNC with the software behind Market Scan’s well-regarded mDesking and mQuote applications to extend the digital experience of online vehicle shopping to the in-dealership customer-salesperson interaction.
mDesking 360 is the industry’s only sales management and desking solution that mines, analyzes and manages the billions of combinations and iterations of lender and OEM programs available in the marketplace and finds truly superior, scientifically-perfect solutions for dealers and consumers.
mDesking 360 also includes Market Scan’s mQuote functionality. With mQuote, the sales associate never has to leave the customer unattended. All payment and purchase options are presented to the customer electronically, with management’s guidance, transparently and in full compliance – on any web-enabled PC, tablet or mobile device.
“Our mDesking 360 software is the ultimate solution for dealerships,” West said. “At Market Scan, all of our products feature the industry’s best data, our proprietary software, and our state-of-the-art calculation engine. These work together to uncover and surface the scientifically-best solutions for the dealership and consumer. mDesking 360 connects the online world with the in-dealership experience, builds greater trust, dramatically reduces transaction times, improves profits and customer satisfaction. Quite simply, there has never been a product like it.”
mDrive Mobile Application Puts the Power of Digital Retailing in the Hands of Dealer’s Sales Staff
The new mDrive app mobilizes mDrive SYNC and mDesking 360. The app provides a streamlined mobile solution to create a consistent and transparent experience between consumers and a dealership’s sales staff. Within the app, the dealer sales associate can input the consumer’s information to immediately showcase a list of available vehicles in the dealer’s inventory that meet a customer’s criteria. With a Payment Value Index (PVI) sort option, the vehicles will be displayed and ranked by the vehicle that represents the best value, which likely will list vehicles the consumer had not even considered as options. The mDrive mobile app will be available to dealers with an mDesking SYNC or mDrive 360 subscription from Market Scan.
