Pre-Fill Customer Info

Nobody wants to do extra work, that’s why SARA saves customer data from any previously completed lead form. SARA then auto-populates the customer’s contact info as soon as they open the form. This makes things easier and faster for the shopper, and is proven to help increase lead conversion.

Incentives

Manufacturer incentives and rebates are always changing, so you need a digital retailing tool that can keep up! SARA syncs up with all OEM feeds to make sure that your customers are always given the current rebates and incentives. And our user friendly incentive page makes it easy for shoppers to choose the rebates they qualify for.

TransUnion Softpull Info*

Having accurate credit data is a crucial component for any digital retailing tool, and getting that data via soft-pull technology is easy and risk free for consumers. SARA is the only digital retailing tool that connects directly to TransUnion to automatically pull a customer’s credit score and all the auto loans in their name with only the shopper’s name and address. All in Real Time!

Trade-in Info

You can’t give an accurate online payment without knowing the customer’s trade-in situation. This is why SARA also includes DEP’s industry-leading trade-in tool, eAutoAppraise. eAutoAppraise can link to either Blackbook, KBB, or NADA Guides, so the trade value you give online will always match the value you’d give in the store.

Vehicle Optional Values

Customers also 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.

Customer Upload Trade-in Photos/Video*

The trade-in portion of SARA aslo has the ability to extract more information from a customer by giving them an option to upload photos or a video of their vehicle. With so much activity taking place on mobile these days, customers can easily use their smart phone’s camera to capture their vehicle and send you more information about their trade.

Customer Loan Match*

Yet another reason why any good digital retailing tool needs to have ability to perform soft-credit pulls is to find out exactly how much a customer owes on their trade-in. 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 trade-in vehicle.

Trade Equity Determination*

Since SARA has the customer’s trade-value AND the loan data on that vehicle, it only makes sense that she displays the customer’s equity position and apply that positive or negative equity to the payments being calculate for the new vehicle. This is a critical part of the car buying process for many consumers, and SARA makes it easy!

Decision Engine: Payment/Lease/Finance

Once SARA knows the customer’s vehicle of interest, current credit score, trade-in value, and equity position, the next step is to pick the best financing option for this consumer. SARA’s proprietary Lender Decisioning Engine gives the consumers a choice of what lender they would like to choose to help them purchase their new vehicle.

Accessories

Just like Amazon, we want customers to be able to add-on to their vehicle purchase. SARA gives consumers the ability to add vehicle accessories right inside the application. They can view all available parts and see how adding anything to their purchase will affect their payment. This helps increase the average purchase value for our dealers, which is always a good thing!

F&I – Maintenance/Extended Warranty

F&I products are a profit center for any dealership, and giving consumers the option to add these products to their vehicle is always going to bring in more revenue to your store. SARA gives you the ability to add custom F&I solutions to the digital retailing process.

Taxes and Fees

They say the only things certain in this life are death and taxes. As grim as that may seem, presenting accurate taxes and fees to consumers is an inherent part of the car buying process. 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.

Pick Your Salesperson

Customers not only want to choose their perfect vehicle, they also want to choose their perfect salesperson. SARA displays your entire sales staff and gives consumers the ability to choose who they want to meet in your store and do business with.

Finalized Deal

Once all these steps have been completed, the deal is finalized, sent directly to the consumer via email, and sent directly into your CRM. This way everyone knows the particulars of each and every SARA deal, and you can get the consumer into their brand new car quickly and easily!
