Xtime, CenPOS Bring Better Streamlined Service Check-Out to Auto Dealerships

The CenPOS payment solution integrates into Xtime's Spectrum Platform, which makes it easier to capture and report customer payments efficiently either in the service lane from a tablet device or any service department workstation.

Consumers save time by making online and in-lane payments directly through Xtime

Dealers using Xtime can now leverage the payment processing capabilities of CenPOS, which is now part of Elavon, to customers creating an enhanced vehicle ownership experience through quicker online and in-lane payment options.

The CenPOS payment solution integrates into Xtime’s Spectrum Platform, which makes it easier to capture and report customer payments efficiently either in the service lane from a tablet device or any service department workstation. All U.S. and Canada-based franchise dealership customers can immediately use the CenPOS payment functionality, creating more convenient, reliable payment options without requiring a significant investment or process change.

“Giving our service advisors the ability to own the experience from start to finish on one platform is pivotal in the way we intend to do business in the future,” said Chance Wiseman, fixed operations trainer at Del Grande Dealer Group in San Jose, Calif. “This one key change in technology will drastically streamline the active redelivery process. Another opportunity Xtime is providing us to exceed our customers’ expectations.”

CenPOS provides dealership customers with more control over their experience. With the choice to make payments remotely thorough their computer and smartphone, or onsite at the dealership with the new and improved Xtime Engage Tablet Reception application, customers can pay as they choose.

“Dealers should look at the service experience they are offering their customers in order to drive greater customer loyalty and retention,” said Tracy Fred, vice president and general manager of Xtime. “The powerful combination of CenPOS and Xtime’s single platform gives both service management and advisors a more streamlined and easy-to-use solution that meets consumers’ demands and saves them time and energy throughout the entire service experience, from write-up to payment.”

An efficient check-out process is also critical to keeping consumers happy and coming back. Consumers who are most satisfied spend 2.5 hours or less at the dealership for service.1 As a result of this new integration, dealers interested in using Xtime’s Engage payment solution will soon have their choice of multiple merchant processing providers.

“With extensive expertise in providing payments for the auto industry, together with Xtime, we can offer rich, secure solutions that are specific to the needs of this industry,” said Joey Orozco, director of business development, CenPOS. “By streamlining service check-out, dealerships can increase customer satisfaction and save their customers valuable time.”
