Lease Conversion

A little competition promotes more sales. With this widget, you can view lease conversion stats for the last 30 days for your dealership and group hierarchy. See how your store stacks up against your group or region, with percentages displayed for the current month’s lease conversions.

30-Day Reach

Gain valuable insight into your marketing efforts and make sure everyone in your database is being reached. This widget shows your dealership’s notification reach for the last 30 days. Take a look at the percentage of customers reached through different channels such as email, mail, and phone, and how they compare against each other. A graph displays the percentage of your database being reached, along with the amount of increase or decrease compared to the previous month.

Vehicle Loyalty

How loyal are your customers? Monitor the retention of your sales and service customers with this widget. The 12-month retention percentage is calculated using transactions—whether a deal or RO—associated with a customer’s VIN. Other insights shown on this widget include:

  • Days to Retain: an average of the days between the last visit and return visit is displayed here.
  • Visits Per Vehicle: this is the total visits (deals and ROs) per vehicle in a 365-day retention period.
  • RO$ Per Visit: this shows the total RO dollars divided by the total visits in a 365-day retention period.
