Quantech Software is now offering a smart-phone application of its Q-GPS CRM/lead management system for dealers.
Developed in partnership with smartphone app developer Advanced Mobile Apps, Quantech said its new app differs from similar smartphone applications in that the Quantech option contains features for both customers and sales staff.
“There’s a no-cost dealer-branded customer app and a set of sales tools integrated with Q-GPS,” explained Mike Martin of Quantech Software.
“Customers can use the app to view inventory, schedule a test-drive, book service appointments or request a quote. Sales functionality includes common Q-GPS tasks like viewing inventory, entering new opportunities and managing tasks.”
The company said the app makes it easier for customers and sales prospects to connect with the dealership. Martin said dealers would like it because it helps with branding and is easier for customers to used than a web browser on their smartphone.
Quantech Software calls itself a “boutique software developer” with a primary focus being on auto, RV, power sports and marine dealerships. It currently produces a number of products included F&I, menu selling, CRM/lead management and dealership management software.
Dealer response to the non-integrated app has been “positive” with reported results seen in the service department and on the sales floor.
Quantech Software is marketing and selling integrated and non-integrated versions of the app to North American dealerships now.
“A lot of our customers will want this. The larger market however will be outside our present customer-base. There are so many customer and dealership benefits I expect every dealership will have their own app within a year,” Martin said. “We would like some of that business.”
