AutoLotManager is the culmination of 30 years of teamwork between "Internet Gurus" and "Car Guys.” Based in Ohio, AutoLotManager currently employs over 25 office and field staff, supporting our effort to help auto dealers market vehicles more efficiently. The owners have an extensive background in Internet development and the automotive retail industry.
Our main concentration is Internet Marketing through Inventory Management, Websites and Marketing Tools. We provide a "Do-It-Yourself" solution for entering data and photos of inventory for dispersal to third party websites (such as Autotrader.com, Cars.com, dealer websites, Manufacturer websites, and others) as well as Window Stickers and Buyers Guides. We also provide "On-The-Lot" service for certain geographical areas.
Moreover, we design and develop new and used vehicle inventory templates (to display inventory on existing sites) or complete dealer websites, including "Micro Sites"for specific marketing campaigns (events, niche products, unique ideas, etc.).
In short, we save dealers money and get results. Many vendors make similar claims, but we have the real-world proof to back it up. With over 250 dealerships under contract, AutoLotManager's 96% retention rate speaks for itself. But feel free to ask for our extensive referral list and speak to our current clients directly about their experiences.
So how do we do it? What makes us different, and better?
AutoLotManager.com is completely Internet based, allowing remote access, unlimited users, security, flexibility, and cost efficiency that no other platform offers. All updates occur in real-time, allowing instant updates to inventory, websites, and all data. (3rd party feeds occur daily).
Additionally, our low overhead allows us to pass along cost savings. We don't have layers of management, company cars, fancy offices, or big expense accounts. We stick to the basics and keep our focus on the important factors for success!
In addition to affordability, superior service has been emphasized from the beginning.
Proper training and supervision are the cornerstones of that emphasis. All of our Field Technicians are screened for computer competencies, rigorously trained before beginning fieldwork as assistants and then finally work independently. Our Field Technician's Manual provides step-by-step instructions for every aspect of the job. Territory Managers supervise Field Techs nightly, reviewing every photo and warranty added that day! Additionally, Field Techs are awarded monthly bonuses based on accuracy and customer service. Office staff review data feeds nightly to ensure proper display on third party websites, again, for every vehicle added that day. Dealer clients are surveyed quarterly for satisfaction and improvement ideas. Dealers also receive complete User Guides and face-to-face training (certain geographic restrictions apply) on all aspects of AutoLotManager.com.
Lastly, our entire team, office, field, technical, and management, understands the urgency of today's challenges for our clients and we respond accordingly. For example, customizing a data feed to include only 60 day units, coming out on a Saturday to train a new manager, or getting a micro site online within 72 hours of notice.
