Two dealership service providers now are working together to help managers get their inventory to stand tall on the front line faster.
Dealer Image Pro, a leader in professional photo, video, and interactive 360-degree software for dealerships, announced it has integrated its Photo Assistant and Autoport software with Rapid Recon’s reconditioning workflow software to improve the time to market for a dealership’s reconditioned vehicles.
Now displayed within the Photo Assistant and Autoport inventory dashboard, dealership sales teams can view the Rapid Recon status of their used vehicles in real-time to quickly identify what stage of the reconditioning process a specific vehicle is in and whether that vehicle is ready to have photos taken.
Once photos are ready, Dealer Image Pro can provide mutual dealers with their inventory photo feeds directly to Rapid Recon, which can make it more convenient for the dealership staff to verify that the photos have been published on the dealership website’s vehicle detail page.
Based on the premise that a vehicle with zero photos on the VDP will receive zero clicks and ultimately few leads, Dealer Image Pro’s integration with Rapid Recon can help dealers easily reference the stage of a used vehicle’s reconditioning process for the in-house photographer to streamline the photos and merchandizing of that vehicle.
Additionally, if a dealership already has the Rapid Recon software plugin installed on a Google Chrome browser, the vehicle identification numbers of the vehicles undergoing reconditioning can be identified from the Autoport inventory dashboard to then locate the specific vehicle directly on Rapid Recon’s desktop website.
“In this fast-paced world, swiftly uploading photos and videos to vehicles has become more critical than it’s ever been,” Rapid Recon vice president of product development Bridget Townsend said in a news release. “We’re excited to be working with Dealer Image Pro in an effort to provide mutual customers the optics they need for improving this process.”
Louis Norman is director of operations at Dealer Image Pro.
“We continue to see dealers wait a couple days to get their inventory photos and videos loaded onto their website’s VDP, which is why this integration with Rapid Recon was a no-brainer for us,” Norman said. “We have made it easier for our mutual clients to hold everyone accountable from the trade walk to the frontline to make sure no car is left behind.”
