news jeep image

Fiat Chrysler Group – the parent company for the iconic Jeep, Fiat and Alfa Romeo brands – has become Australia’s first auto manufacturer to roll out the revolutionary Dealer Drive application throughout their entire dealer network.

Designed specifically for the automotive industry, Dealer Drive streamlines the process of conducting customer test drives and managing loan vehicles – resulting in increased productivity and significant time and cost savings for dealers and their customers.

As a manufacturer known for their commitment to top level efficiency, Fiat Chrysler Group sees the use of Dealer Drive as an obvious next step in their service delivery to their customers. As Fiat Chrysler Group President and CEO, Veronica Johns puts it:

“Automating the test drive and loan vehicle process ensures our customers are always receiving the highest level service from our dealers while at the same time offering the dealers newfound initiatives to drive efficiency in their businesses.”

Dealer Drive is the result of four years intensive research by automotive industry experts Michael Webb and Paul Willson. With a combined 30 years’ experience in the field, the two have brought together an app for tablets and smartphones that addresses the core needs of the automotive industry.

“Dealer Drive gives car dealerships the edge. The ability to view data in real-time allows both dealers and manufacturers to make quicker, more informed decisions. Dealers can easily track and measure their operational effectiveness, reduce costs and improve sales, says Michael Webb.

Dealer Drive also provides manufacturers the ability to measure marketing campaign effectiveness, monitor the performance of the entire dealer network and above all else, better support them with various marketing, sales and staff training initiatives”.

A free trial of Dealer Drive is available for download from iTunes and Google play. Product information can be found at www.dealerdrive.com.au.

"Dealer drive is such a simple app that has a huge impact on the daily running of our group.  A few key benefits are;
No more looking for paper work, Business Managers/All staff can easily look up drivers licences and contact details within seconds. I personally look after all infringements for the The Bruce Lynton Group and without Dealer Drive it could take me weeks to find a nominated driver; now its a matter of just 30 seconds! We have all our sites/dealerships linked so I can easily view our group, stock is automatically uploaded 3 times a day via our DMS to keep accurate, and there are plenty of automated reports available that allow our Managers to monitor each department on the go. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Dealer Drive to any dealership or group."

“Andrews and Wallis Group have been using Dealer Drive since July 2014. The group implemented Dealer Drive over 4 dealerships both in Sales and Service and covers all; Loan cars, Demonstrators, Test-Drives and Staff drive cars.

The Dealer Drive system is a fantastic efficient tool to manage a paperless system with simple interfaces that all staff can use easily. We have saved time and cost with no paper use or insecure storage of customer licenses.

We would have trouble going back to a loan book and photocopies in a folder now. Additionally the CRM side of Dealer Drive is fantastic in marketing to those customers who have taken a demo or loan gaining further sales opportunities. I would recommend Dealer Drive to any business loaning or driving cars on a daily basis.”
