Service Scheduler Integration
The average car owner schedules a service appointment 1-2 times per year. And while both dealers and OEMs may prefer to see them schedule service with their local franchise dealer, there are many service options available to car owners.
To ensure customer retention in the service lane and provide a more seamless customer experience, it's important for OEMs to enable consumers to quickly create service appointments with their dealer of choice.
Your OEM systems and processes need to communicate bi-directionally with dealer systems to accurately post service appointment availability for customers and ensure every scheduled appointment is tracked in the dealers systems.
Achieving a seamless online service scheduling experience requires automakers to integrate with multiple dealer systems because every dealership uses a variety of systems to manage their business operations.
Motive Retail provides a flexible API solution to seamlessly connect the OEM's digital service scheduling systems with core dealer systems for real-time online service appointment booking by consumers.
