How many cars are you going to lose today?

A funny thing happened on the way to the dealership...
It’s difficult to believe something as big a car, truck, or SUV could go missing for more than a few hours. But this is exactly what happens every single day to auto dealerships across the country. Sure, roving bands of car thieves haunt some avenues, but I’m referring to vehicles lost in transmission; the ones that don’t hit the books until after the bank audit.
We know the process from factory to show floor involves a lot of working parts and if there's a breakdown in the process, it isn't noticed until it's too late.
It's no mystery; the data you need is lost inside the software you use everyday. That’s where Atlas-Auto comes into play. We designed a tool that easily connects with your existing systems and reports the number of vehicles and costs associated with each stage of your recon process. We even calculate an estimated time of completion.
The data is up-to-date reducing the opportunity to sell a vehicle below cost - although we all know this never happens, right?
But wait, there's more. Imagine your lot holds 1,000 vehicles and the bank shows up for a floor check. How long does that take now? Several hours? A couple of days? If something is missing, maybe a week or more AND you fall out of trust with the bank? That's the story now, but it doesn't have to be. With Atlas, the process is as simple as touching a screen or flying our remote reader over your acres, collecting RFID data from the sky. Either way, a several hour (at best) process is reduced to a few minutes. You're happy, the bank is happy, and your customers are happy because you're selling more vehicles, faster.
Atlas. Find your Way.
