Sales Snapshot: Texas

Hi Key Controllers,

Take a look here at this link: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/article/Auto-sales-have-a-better-month-but-still-trending-10621772.php

Let's take a look at vehicle sales figures for Texas. Currently, it overall sounds like the market is in a downward trend, despite the drop in oil prices. Regardless, each dealership must be persistent in closing deals to win the end of the year with strong numbers. Your next key machine can be that solution for helping your team increase sales numbers. The KeyMaster is made to track your keys, but has many more abilities, including customer data gathering. At the end of the day, you need that customer's information to follow up more frequently and close more deals. You set the standard for what information you need before a user gets the keys for a test drive. The more data your CRM gets, the more likely your salesperson can close those deals. Be better than how the industry is today! Track your keys, get customer information, and close more deals. Let the KeyMaster help!

 

Have a great weekend,

 

Jamie

No More Stolen Cars

Hello Key Managers!

First, take a look at this link: http://kron4.com/2016/10/24/only-on-kron4-several-cars-stolen-from-san-leandro-car-dealership-used-in-gas-station-burglary/

I spoke with the Casey Turner, the GM at McKevitt VW in San Leandro, CA on the phone a couple weeks ago about an incident that happened at his dealership recently. Unfortunately, there were 4 cars stolen after about 15 burglars broke in to the dealership. Thankfully, he has gotten the cars back, but not in the condition they were in before the heist. Anytime we hear of stolen vehicles at a dealership, we know the painful process that they have to go through to clean up the aftermath. That's one of the many reasons where we come in to stop that point of loss and end the uncertainty of car theft. Although the conversation with Casey was brief, he seemed to be very positive about the situation and we're glad that he was able to get the cars back. We hope in the future that 1Micro and the KeyMaster can be McKevitt's next key management system, so there won't be any more stolen cars.

The KeyMaster will keep your keys secure, don't take a chance by not having our system in place! Make it a great day, have a good weekend!

Technology That Drives Automotive Car Sales

Hello Key Controllers!

Take a look at this article: 

http://wardsauto.com/dealer/technology-great-people-greater-car-dealerships

When you think of the word technology, I'm sure you would agree that it plays a major part in our society today. Whether it's your cell phone, laptop, or television, each of these will assist us in a daily activity. Let's dive deeper into your dealership's technology:

The point of every dealership is to sell cars. Many automotive sales consultants would agree that using some type technology will aid in closing a sale. Some examples could be through email, a dealership's website, in store televisions showing vehicle specs, electronic signatures, CRM, DMS, or by a key tracking system. There are many different paths to choose from. In any decision, it should produce a positive ROI for you and your dealership. 

That's where the KeyMaster comes in. When it comes to an investment, not only will the KeyMaster save on your costs, but will also aid in increasing your sales dollars. Yes - it is a key tracking system for your dealership, but it also extends to be a resource for your sales staff. Extensive reporting show you the data that you have been missing in your dealership, it forces the data entry that you need from your staff, and plenty more. The KeyMaster will secure your keys but it does far more; making it the most advanced key tracking system. Don't let lack of technology lead to lack of sales!

Car Thefts Are Rising

Hello Key Managers!

Take a look here at this link: 

http://www.autonews.com/article/20161101/OEM06/161109990/for-car-thieves-a-quick-and-easy-

The NICB is working hard to put a stop to these car thefts. At 1Micro, we agree that something must be done. The KeyMaster makes it a lot harder for thieves to get the keys because of it's solid design, made from aircraft grade aluminum. Not only is this built to last for years and years, but it's also built to keep unauthorized individuals out.

Do you ever wonder if your Key Management System for your dealership is getting that job done?

If so, can it do anything more than what the KeyMaster can do?

Don't take the risk of potentially stolen keys/vehicles. When you put our Key Management System in your dealership, your users accountability increases and the worry of theft decreases.

Have a great weekend!

Why risk losing something as valuable as this when our Key Management System is the answer to controlling your keys? Regardless of the size or luxury of the key, The KeyMaster has the ability to control them and keep them safe.
