HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dealerlogix has completed its integration of myCarfax so dealerships can identify more vehicles with open recalls in their service lanes. Service advisors writing-up customer vehicles using the enhanced Dealerlogix system are automatically notified of open recalls on them, including off-brand vehicles. Dealerlogix is one of the first dealer solution providers to bring myCarfax tools to the dealer Fixed Operations space.
"We are very excited about this relationship with Carfax," saidMark Brandon, President and Founder of Dealerlogix. "This integration automatically looks up open recalls and adds them to the appointment or repair order with zero effort on the part of the Service Advisor. This helps ensure customers of Dealerlogix dealerships are driving safe cars, while dealers are maximizing revenue and reducing warranty administration headaches."
Vehicle-specific open recall information is reported by the auto manufacturers directly to Carfax. Once the enhanced Dealerlogix system with myCarfax identifies open recalls on a customer vehicle, it automatically pushes the recall details to the dealership's DMS. Service advisors can immediately add the recall fix to the repair order or notify the customer of the recall for off-brand vehicles.
"A key part of keeping customer cars well-maintained is making sure the recall repairs are up-to-date," said Vern Poyner, general manager at Carfax. "Dealerlogix shares our commitment to making it easy for dealerships to identify open recalls. Integrating myCarfax into the Dealerlogix system gives dealers a more powerful add-on tool for their DMS and helps streamline the important process of taking customer recalls from open to closed."
Nearly 40,000 service locations and solution providers are part of the myCarfax Service Shop program, with access to free tools that help improve customer loyalty and increase car count. To get the enhanced Dealerlogix system for your dealership, visit www.dealerlogix.com.
