EasyCare’s SAVY® Automotive Technology Outshines Uber and others at Digital Dealer 23

Share

Norcross, GA. September 27, 2017 – EasyCare announced that its SAVY® mobile app suite and OBD-II device earned first-place honors in the Tech Tank competition at the Digital Dealer conference this week. SAVY won in a landslide with half the votes, more than doubling 2nd place Uber.

“We are honored to compete against companies like Uber, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results,” said Scott Jacobsen, Mobile Performance Driver for EasyCare. “SAVY represents the next generation of dealer technology, and winning Tech Tank clearly shows that dealerships need and are excited about innovative solutions to manage their inventories, increase F&I revenue and engage and retain customers. After the win our booth was inundated with dealers looking to learn more about SAVY because they see real value in what it delivers.”

The SAVY mobile app suite, including SAVY Lot and SAVY Driver, uses the power of telematics in its SAVY Pro OBD-II plug and integration to the dealerships DMS system to deliver a powerful value proposition across the entire dealership and to the dealership’s customers.

Officially launched at Digital Dealer, SAVY Lot app helps dealers conveniently locate, manage and protect every vehicle on and off their lot. Beyond just locating vehicles, SAVY Lot can check the fuel, battery and overall health status of each vehicle, eliminating extensive customer wait time while they wait for test drives. Plus, dealers can receive alerts if any of their vehicles are driven too fast, after hours or beyond a set geographic boundary.

Dealers can seamlessly make the SAVY Pro plug, along with a customized VIP loyalty program, an added value purchase on the F&I menu. Customers can receive a high value package of benefits from the dealer, download the SAVY Driver app immediately at the dealership, start earning points and receiving offers right away while managing their daily driving and safety needs right on their mobile devices.

SAVY Driver delivers high customer engagement by connecting customers to their vehicles, with features like vehicle health scans, real-time service reminders and appointment scheduling, trip tracking, teen driver alerts and curfews, location tracking and crash notifications. And when it’s time for customers to purchase a new vehicle, they can value their trade-in and browse the dealership’s inventory on the app, adding their favorites to a watch list and scheduling a test drive on the spot.

“At EasyCare, we believe the dealer should own the OBD-II port. There should be no question about that,” said Larry Dorfman, EasyCare’s CEO. “But to own it, you have to demonstrate real value to the customer as well as the dealer. SAVY does exactly that, and prevailing in the Tech Tank competition proves it.”
