About the Dealership

Calgary-based South Trail Chrysler Dodge Jeep & Ram Superstore treats the needs of each individual customer with paramount concern. This commitment to excellence earned them the “Consumer Choice Award” in 2019 for Southern Alberta. They opened their doors on February 1st, 2016 and implemented the wiADVISOR Program in 2018.

Results

wiADVISOR has been integral to implementing a consistent process in the service lane and has generated impressive results. 


From the Dealership

“The wiADVISOR platform has transformed our service drive by allowing customers to have a more active and dynamic drop-off experience. Increased trust is by far the best benefit of wiADVISOR, as it allows customers to be much more involved in the check-in process. Consistently presenting factory recommended services for their vehicle creates greater transparency and makes them feel less like there are being ‘sold’ services.”

“Our write-up process has been streamlined and getting information to the Technicians has vastly improved since installing the wiADVISOR program. “Podding” our customers’ vehicles not only ensures accurate VIN write-up, but forces recalls, RRTs and codes present to be alerted to the Technician via the FCA Service Library. This gives the Technician a more informed view of the vehicle’s condition and increases the ‘Fixed Right the First Time” rate. ”

“I would highly recommend wiADVISOR to any dealership management team due to the enormous value the program brings to a dealership’s fixed operations.”

“We have already seen a 25% increase in CP sales since implementing the wiADVISOR program. It’s simple – get wiADVISOR or be left in the dust!”

About the Dealership

Serra Gardendale Kia is committed to doing “Whatever It Takes” in order to be the best Kia dealership in Alabama. They focus on outstanding customer service, a culture of success for all team members, and long-term customer loyalty.

From the Dealership

“Now in my 7th year as General Manager of Kia Franchises, there has been no greater challenge than raising the bar for customer pay in our service department.  The excuses from my team were endless:

  • “If I do the multi-point, the writer doesn’t sell the recommendations”
  • “If I sell the service, parts can’t deliver fast enough for the customer”
  • “There just isn’t time to sell the multi-point”
  • And my favorite excuse… “Kia customers can’t afford the service”

As a dealer and General Manager, I struggled with these excuses as barriers to raising customer pay dollars and efficiencies for years. Until we partnered with Dealer-FX.”


“Dealer-FX has the tools, technology, systems, and most importantly service, that has helped my service department almost DOUBLE OUR CUSTOMER PAY HOURS PER R.O.”

“Most vendors have a system and most “talk a good game” until you sign the contract. I was most impressed with the service that Dealer-FX provided after the dotted line was signed.  Their team worked with each sub-department until every employee understood, and could be held accountable for, performance and execution. It was almost like having a second Service Director to help with the install and execution.

If you are looking for a true partner to help take your service department to the next level, consider Dealer-FX.”
