Richmond, Va. –
Patent Application Number 20060229981, a method for increasing sales of vehicles at an automobile dealership using a hand held scanner and a data base link, promises to change the way people shop for cars and trucks. Richmond Ford, an icon in the Richmond automobile marketplace, has this new invention fully installed and operational with all the most up to date Ford programs and APR incentives.
“Car shopping just got a lot easier,” explained car salesman and program inventor Mike Crites. “We base the figures on our sale prices along with the customer’s credit standing. If there’s a down payment, or trade-in, we enter that as well. Other than that, the customer just points the Payment RangerTM at anything on our lot. The lowest cash price or lowest finance payment is then instantly displayed on a specially programmed hand held PDA. Because the prepared estimate takes into account the customer’s personal credit rating, down payment, and trade information, the resulting payment display is very accurate in showing just what each particular customer can expect to pay.”
“Customers love the concept. Customers are able to get straight answers about their lowest price or payment in less than a second on anything that Richmond Ford sells. When you compare the way other dealerships treat monthly payments as a closely guarded secret, it is really wonderful that Richmond Ford has chosen to offer something so easy and straight forward. Currently, they are the only dealership in the country offering this system.”
“I’m tremendously excited about the reception that the public has given this invention,” says Mr. Crites. “This is good for the customer and the dealership. If more customers find it inviting to come to the dealership to shop and browse, it can only be good for everyone.”
