Car dealerships may have hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of inventory on their car lot at any time. Unfortunately, theft on car lots can and does occur, hurting the dealer’s bottom line. It’s important that car dealerships implement a solution that allows them to identify when vehicles go missing and the person responsible.
Using inexpensive GPS Tracking Devices, car dealerships can track the GPS location of every car on their lot. With configuration, these devices can notify dealership management if vehicles leave the facility. Once taken, the tag provides all the information needed to locate the vehicle. Although it isn’t recommended that the car dealer visits thieves themselves, the dealer can pass this information on to the authorities, ensuring fast and efficient recovery of vehicles.
Asset Tracking Solution
GPS Tracking Devices attach easily to vehicles. The low profile design of the device make them a discreet option for tracking vehicle location. In addition to GPS location, the device reports on time and date of impact, increasing accountability of drivers when accidents occur. This could prove especially beneficial during the COVID-19 crises as most dealerships have begun allowing potential buyers to venture out on test drives alone.
Mint Controls’ Software displays real-time data from multiple tags. From the Software, car dealership owners and management can view the location and status of every car on their lot. This includes vehicles moved to other car lots or on loan to customers while their vehicle receives service.
Benefits of GPS Tracking
GPS Tracking provides numerous benefits. In addition to helping prevent theft and locate stolen vehicles, GPS Tags help identify customer preferences. Car dealers can use the tags to monitor which vehicles potential buyers prefer to take on test drives. It can also help identify which vehicles sit the longest. When placed in vehicles during service, management can track how long it takes to complete service tasks. Management can even use the tags to track how long vehicles remain in the showroom. The possibilities are endless.
