Jumping into the service side of the dealership, Dealers United offers members a discount off online scheduling solutions with TimeHighway.com.
Sarasota, FL – September 4, 2012 – Dealers United, the first service to truly leverage the buying power of individual dealerships, is aiming to bring savings and additional business to dealership service departments with their September member deal: online service scheduling through TimeHighway. Based on the negotiated terms, members of Dealers United will receive a discount on the company’s Online and Internal package.
“TimeHighway is the undisputed leader in online service scheduling and they truly drive service revenue for dealers,” said Matt Buchanan, co-Founder of Dealers United. “In addition to having one of the most robust online scheduling tools in the industry, they understand consumer’s needs and use that knowledge to increase service revenue in every bay.”
The TimeHighway package will include online scheduling for customers, reminder notifications, access to their service history, a repair website that shows customers pictures of their needed repair, , and customized upsell messages, among other items. One feature that sets the TimeHighway solution in a class by itself is the ability of the scheduling software to account for the entire service team’s availability, versus an individual advisor. In this way, the schedule is opened across all advisors, creating more efficiency, additional open appointments and increased revenue.
“Today consumers can schedule almost anything online, from dinner reservations to airline tickets, why not bring that type of solution to automotive service and repairs?” said Karen Dillon, President of, TimeHighway. “With our service tools, Dealers United members will be able to reach out to the elusive online shopper and let them schedule their appointment online, at a time that works for them.”
