OEConnection LLC (OEC), the leading automotive technology provider for original equipment manufacturers’ (OEM) distribution networks, was awarded the “Product Innovation of the Year” honor by Car Dealer Magazine for its Online Booking solution. OEC received the award at the publication’s annual Aftermarket Excellence Awards in February. Winners were selected by the Senior Management team at Car Dealer Magazine.
The Online Booking platform takes the stress out of the process of booking a vehicle for service; maintenance; tires & accessories at the dealership with convenient, 24/7 customer access to the scheduling tool, which integrates with both the OEM and dealership’s website. With just a few clicks, a customer can book an appointment, see cost and receive recommendations on additional services based on vehicle age and mileage. Automakers using the solution include Vauxhall, Hyundai, Seat, Skoda, Fiat and Nissan, which has helped to grow booking volume 35% year over year.
“We are humbled and proud to be recognized for this honor,” said James Farthing, Director of Service at OEC. “We strive to create efficiencies at the dealership level, and our Online Booking solution makes the entire process easy for both the dealership and the customer. This tool provides the customer with the means to book at a time that suits them, which in today’s world can be any time, on any day, and not always when personnel are ready to take a phone call at the dealership.”
Car Dealer Founder and CEO, James Baggott, remarked that Online Booking “solves the problem of car owners only being able to make service bookings during workshop hours and helps re-engage lapsed customers. What’s more, [OEC] has worked hard to continually improve it since its launch.”
