NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Advent Resources has fully integrated its dealer management system (DMS) with myCarfax Service Shop tools, giving dealerships more access to valuable information from Carfax in their fixed operations. Dealerships using the Advent DMS can easily join the myCarfax Service Shop program and take advantage of free resources like Carfax Service History Check and Carfax QuickVIN.
"This integration is another example of our efforts to deliver maximum value to Advent DMS clients," said Tim Gill, CEO of Advent Resources Inc. "Working with Carfax and the myCarfax Service Shop program, we're putting trusted information about past maintenance in the hands of service writers to better serve their customers. We fully expect this enhancement will have a net positive impact on operations efficiency and service revenue."
Carfax Service History Check shows a vehicle's reported maintenance history. Armed with this information, service technicians can make better service recommendations to their customers which, when combined with other myCarfax benefits like Carfax QuickVIN, helps avoid parts-ordering errors and increases ticket averages.
The Advent DMS also features a button to register service customers for the free myCarfax.com vehicle maintenance service. Dealers that register their customers with myCarfax.com are automatically stored as the customers' favorite shop. Through the myCarfax.com mobile app or desktop version, customers get alerts about recalls and when it's time for their next recommended maintenance visit, directing them back to their favorite shop.
"I am certain my advisors will be able to make good use of the Carfax data to better take care of our customers," said Carl Coggins, service director at Unicars Honda in Indio, Calif. "The recall info is important for the safety of the vehicle and the service history enables to us to better compete for all of their maintenance business."
