SARA is a 3-in-1 Solution
Pre Filled Customer Info
SARA saves customer data from any previously completed lead form and auto-populates their contact info. This makes credit approval easier and faster for the shopper, and is proven to help increase lead conversion.
SARA syncs up with all OEM feeds to make sure that your customers are always given the current rebates and incentives. Our user friendly incentives page makes it easy for shoppers to choose the rebates they qualify for.
The optional additional questions within the credit pre-approval will allow your customers to provide any and all further information they deem necessary to fully complete their credit profile.
TransUnion Soft Pull
SARA is the only digital retailing tool that connects directly to TransUnion to automatically pull a customer’s credit score and all auto loans with only their name and address.
SARA includes DEP’s industry-leading trade-in tool. eAutoAppraise can link to Blackbook, KBB, or NADA Guides, so the online trade value will always match the in-store trade value.
Vehicle Optional Values
Customers have the ability to select which options/add-ons they have on their current vehicle in order to get a more accurate assessment of their trade.
SARA gives customers the option to upload photos or a video of their trade-in vehicle.
SARA is the only tool in the industry that can not only give a trade-in value, but also match the customer’s loan to that vehicle.
Trade Equity Determination
Since SARA has the trade-value and loan data, she displays the customer’s equity position and applys that equity to the payment calculation for the new vehicle.
SARA’s proprietary Lender Decisioning Engine gives the customer a choice of lease or finance, lender, and term length to help them pick the best options for their purchase.
SARA gives customers the ability to add vehicle accessories right inside the application. They can view all available parts and see how adding any will affect their payment.
SARA allows you to add custom F&I solutions for maintenance and/or extended warranty to the digital retailing process.
Taxes & Fees
SARA pulls tax data from across the country and matches the taxes and fees to the consumer’s zip code so that these costs are always accurate.
Once all the steps are completed, the deal is finalized, emailed to the customer, and sent directly to your CRM. This way you can get the customer into their new vehicle quickly and easily.
