PHOENIX, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpine 4 Technologies Ltd. (OTCQB: ALPP), a technology and manufacturing holding company initially targeting the national automobile dealership market, announced today it has signed an agreement with Phoenix, AZ-based Earnhardt Auto Centers to launch a 90-day pilot program of its innovative 6th Sense Auto™ product platform to track and manage Earnhardt's inventory in the field. The pilot program will be installed at Earnhardt's Chevrolet dealership in Chandler, AZ with the potential of further installations at Earnhardt's other more than 20 automobile dealerships in the southwestern U.S. in the future.
6th Sense Auto is designed for the modern "connected car" and dedicated to helping large dealerships like Earnhardt improve their inventory management, engine diagnostics, service maintenance and personalized customer support through wireless, cloud-based software.
"We were impressed when we saw everything that 6th Sense had to offer and feel that this is not only a great dealer tool but also a great benefit to the customer as well," says Derby Earnhardt.
The pilot program is expected to generate a steady stream of recurrent revenue for Alpine 4 that should expand when more dealerships are signed on, noted Alpine 4 CEO Kent B. Wilson.
"We are very excited to be working closely with a modern, well-respected automobile dealership group like Earnhardt Auto Centers," Wilson said. "Its large Chevrolet dealership represents a perfect platform to demonstrate the value that 6th Sense Auto provides for management, in terms of monitoring and tracking their assets and enhancing the performance of their service department and customer support."
