As vehicle sales continue at an incredible pace, it’s understandable if the service side of your business is not top of mind. But keeping your service department busy adds a lot to your bottom line while building customer loyalty and generating even more sales floor traffic.

Reynolds & Reynolds’ ReminderTrax makes it easy to send print or e-mail reminders to current or lapsed service customers. The reminders promote your dealership and deliver personalized reminders relevant to each customer, covering things like service intervals, thank-you notes and more.

ReminderTrax is also perfect for connecting pre-owned buyers with your service department because it is not tied to certain vehicles like OEM programs. And as hot as the vehicle market is, you’ll always want more sales traffic. One recent estimate showed that 70% of loyal service customers become buyers at a dealership. Building that loyalty with ReminderTrax is simple and effective.

The ROI on this program is incredible, with a $92 return for every $1 spent. And thanks to online reporting metrics, you’ll be able to determine which pitches are working and fine-tune your tactics.
