Inspect Multimedia Usage

Easily Track Your Multimedia Usage From Inspect​

Monitor which ROs have media attached from a glance.

Managing media usage just got easier with the newly added “E” column in the Inspect Dashboard. When you see a V, I, or IV in this column you can now determine if technicians added a Video, Image, or Both (IV). This will help you as a manager ensure every customer is getting the same experience through media capture and that your team is meeting the expectations set.

Bring Them Back

68% of your ASRs are declined.* Xtime can help you get them back.

When an ASR is declined, as most of them are, are those dollars gone for good? Xtime uses powerful marketing automation to deploy personalized promotions that nudge customers who have previously declined services back to the dealership. Last year, Xtime helped the average dealer recapture an additional $7400 per month**  in service revenue.

To discover how to recapture lost revenue through declined services marketing, talk with your Performance Manager.

*Xtime Inspect data, December 2020 through November 2021. 
**Based on 2197 Xtime dealers using declined services marketing between December 2020 and November 2021. 

New CDK Line Pricing​

Update your Schedule Catalog pricing structure for desired services by using price overrides. Click Service>Add Pricing Override>Enter  BOTH parts and labor pricing along with technician hours. When selected during the check in, these prices will push directly to Inspect and will override the DMS opcode pricing.

Help your service employees be more efficient while improving the customer experience with Common Operations in Inspect. By leveraging commonly sold services into a common catalog, the tool streamlines the process of looking up, pulling, and handing off parts and creating the ASRs with parts currently in inventory. Common Operations for cabin & engine air filters is now available at no extra cost.  

Offer consumers the option to request rideshare service when scheduling a service appointment. This enhancement presents customers the opportunity to select this transportation service during the service appointment scheduling workflow, creating better awareness and increasing customer satisfaction. Your dealership staff will maintain full control when ordering rides. 

Retain more customers by having a salesperson book the first service appointment without having to walk the customer over to the service department. If you have VinSolutions Connect CRM, Xtime can pull in the customer’s information to schedule that first service appointment, without any duplicate data entry, and Xtime will keep that contact information updated in your Connect CRM over time.

Xtime Schedule dealers will now see a new Manager Override process that replaces the previous process that included inputting username & password. The redesign will enable you to utilize a unique code to process a manager override. Each manager’s unique code can be accessed and updated in your user profile.  

 

For more information, reach out to your performance manager.
