CALGARY, AB: Your Warranty Team (YWT) and Auto Shield Canada (ASC) are excited to announce a new partnership with AutoVerify that will enhance the car shopping experience with their industry-leading Spotlight platform.
AutoVerify Spotlight is a digital merchandising tool that solves some unique challenges within the F&I industry by introducing protection products at an earlier stage in the customer’s journey.
Automotive Customer Research Tendencies are Changing
Now more than ever, consumers are doing their own research prior to consulting a dealership. AutoVerify tools empower dealerships with an out-of-the-box solution to answer consumers’ most pressing questions around financing options, what their trade-in is worth, which protection products are available, and even the functionality to set up a test drive.
With this new partnership, Spotlight now includes the industry-leading protection products offered by Auto Shield Canada right on the dealership’s vehicle details pages. This enables the consumer to confidently research vehicle protection options on their own terms, while the tool builds desk-ready sales deals that have been statistically proven to increase dealership profitability.
Why Customers Need to Learn About Protection Products Sooner
Consumers are typically first exposed to finance and insurance (F&I) options near the end of the purchasing journey. Studies suggest that they would be more likely to invest in the programs if they could learn about them on their own time and have time to think about the possibilities first.
Randy Kammerer, President of Your Warranty Team, says, “Today’s automotive buyer needs to know that real Protection is available earlier in the vehicle buying process. AutoVerify Spotlight is an incredible avenue to accomplish this.”
Don Miller, President at Auto Shield Canada, says that “We are so proud to be delivering Protection programs and Warranty options through AutoVerify Spotlight. Now that we are integrated into the AutoVerify Spotlight, we can assist dealers in educating their customers by introducing our Protection products earlier in the vehicle shopping process.”
“We are very excited to be partnering with Auto Shield Canada,” says Marty Meadows, President at AutoVerify. “This partnership will help improve the consumer buying journey by positively educating them about warranty options, it will help dealers sell more Auto Shield Canada products, and it will add value to AutoVerify Spotlight.”
