ReconVelocity Brings Automation And Optimization To The Reconditioning Process For Auto Dealers

The reconditioning process of vehicles for sale, historically a cumbersome, manual process lacking efficiency, automation and accuracy, offers dealers a significant opportunity to capture unrealized profit quickly and easily.

Fully Integrated Solution Helps Dealers Get Vehicles Retail-Ready Faster and Turns Reconditioning Process Into a Profit Generator

Las Vegas, NV – To combat margin compression and workflow inefficiencies in the retail automotive industry, ReconVelocity recently introduced its new solution to help dealers get vehicles retail-ready faster, improve in-store communications, and deliver more to the bottom line. ReconVelocity, which made its debut today at the Digital Dealer Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, has more than 500 rooftops already installed and/or committed to the system.

Developed by industry expert Hugh Hathcock, founder of ELEAD1ONE, to specifically address the margin challenges facing dealers today, ReconVelocity brings sophisticated technology and pit crew precision to an overlooked area of opportunity: the reconditioning process.  

Hathcock recognized that the next iteration of today’s dealership requires optimizing all areas of the business to deliver higher operating efficiencies, and applying innovation and automation to parts of the dealership operation that traditionally have been neglected. The reconditioning process of vehicles for sale, historically a cumbersome, manual process lacking efficiency, automation and accuracy, offers dealers a significant opportunity to capture unrealized profit quickly and easily.

“The reconditioning process is ripe for modernization – it’s significant profit hidden in plain sight,” says Hugh Hathcock, founder of ReconVelocity. “For many, the ‘Recon Gap’ is a million dollar opportunity. Most dealerships don’t have the technology to know their true retail-ready timeframe. With used vehicles becoming more critical to the profit of a dealership, this process needs new focus. ReconVelocity is purpose-built to help dealers turn reconditioning into a profit generator.” 

ReconVelocity Key Features

  • Time-Saving Simplicity—modern user interfaces designed for today 
  • Mobile First—anywhere, anytime flexibility on mobile phones, tablets and laptops
  • Insightful Tracking—information from the moment of purchase or ‘trade to retail-ready’ prevents weak links from stealing your profits
  • No More “Lost” Vehicles – track the exact location of vehicles at all times 
  • Repairs in a Snap—ROs and Recall Notices assigned with the press of a button 
  • High-touch Service – in-store training and seamless support from Recon Experts ensure dealers achieve optimal results
  • Centralized Communication—all departments (and rooftops) are kept in the know
  • Superior Reporting—check the reconditioning pipeline status anywhere, anytime with the simple dashboard and a mobile device
  • Full Integration—ReconVelocity integrates with DMS and inventory solutions.

“There’s a direct correlation between profitability and the shortness of time between acquisition and retail readiness. We’re anticipating being able to reduce the amount of time it takes to get a car ready by 25 percent. That could add millions of dollars to the bottom line,” says Brian Benstock, General Manager and Vice President of Paragon Honda & Paragon Acura. “We chose ReconVelocity because of Hugh’s dedication to customer service.  It’s incredible the amount of service he was able to provide to us through his previous company, ELEAD1ONE, and I know I can count on that same level of high-touch service with ReconVelocity.”

Autosled Announces Multiple Product Upgrades

Improved shipment visibility and transporter payment system among updates affecting retail automotive dealers looking to ship cars and trucks.

Autosled announced that it has released multiple product improvements for its nationwide vehicle transport and logistics platform. As a disruptor in the mobility and digital logistics space with a proven track record of excellence, Autosled is constantly improving upon its existing products and infrastructure.

The most recent product rollouts improve functionality for transporter teams within the Autosled network. Providing additional visibility into the available loads along each driver’s individual route saves time while also providing improved service to dealerships needing to move vehicles faster. In addition, Autosled’s new one-click reassignment function saves both dispatchers and drivers significant time, especially when a change needs to be made while a vehicle is en route. Large transport companies with multiple drivers will greatly benefit from these process improvements. Autosled’s mobile application, iOS version 3.1.1, now includes a popup alert informing the driver if the load requires an enclosed trailer, contains any inoperable vehicles, or necessitates special instructions required by the shipper. This has been especially helpful as Autosled increases its coverage at ports and railyards nationwide. These considerations provide that only drivers who can meet the specifications drive to pick up these vehicles- cutting down on pickup cancellations and wasted time.
