How Dealers Are Using Fleet Management Software to Improve Loaner Programs

October 14, 2020

For most dealerships, especially luxury brands, having a loaner fleet is a cost of doing business. Many GM’s view their loaner program as an opportunity, like introducing a customer to a newer model or getting slower-selling models into the mix and shifting them into low mileage, high quality used vehicles. 

 

However attractive a strong loaner fleet might be, managing that fleet can be complex. Simply keeping track of the vehicle can become a challenge – from an off-site service facility to a body shop to an impound yard, it’s easy to lose track of a car. Locating your loaner vehicle is blocking and tackling. Smart GMs also want to know about vehicle usage, mileage, and driver behaviors for future resale value purposes. Are customers driving your vehicles gently, or are they going to need new brakes and tires? Were there any incidents the customer would rather not mention?

 

Zubie’s loaner fleet management software not only provides important information on your loaner cars but also helps solve the complexity of inventory management. Zubie integrates flawlessly with many dealer software systems, making it easy for fleet managers to see all the information in one system.
