Web-based car reconditioning software for auto dealerships

About Rapid Recon

Rapid Recon is a web-based car reconditioning software that helps auto dealerships monitor vehicles in real-time, perform repairs, and track vehicle movement through QR code scanning.

The application enables supervisors to locate vehicles across multi-level parking facilities using geolocation technology and receive automated updates on open safety recalls. Administrators can generate daily, weekly, or monthly reports on employee activity, holding cost, step times, and more. Dealers can visualize and compare past and current performance trends and evaluate the stats within the dealer group. The real-time reporting capabilities assist managers with resource planning, cost analysis, and process improvement.

Individuals can use the mobile application to add and review vehicle details, track them throughout the reconditioning process, and search vehicles using VIN barcode or text searches. Users can also upload images, assign and manage tasks, and create or edit notes with dates and timestamps. The software helps update inventory details and automatically removes, archives or retrieves sold car data.

I frankly cant imagine doing business again without Rapid Recon! It changes everything!

Pros

Ability to track vehicles through reconditioning process. Also able to track vehicle for other processes as well. Easy to use and reliable.

Cons

Inability to have a vehicle reside in more then one step at a time. It would be nice to be able to set a vehicle for sublet work (windshield replacement for example) but also still have the vehicle in another step such as inspection or detail.

Response from Rapid Recon

Steve, thanks for your excellent review. We actually have exactly what you're asking for in relationship to being able to have a vehicle in a vendor step and a service step. In November we release Vendor Advantage, there's no additional cost, but it does require some setup. I'll ask your account manager to reach out to you to get you set up.

My overall experience with Rapid Recon has been great. I like how easy it is to use and track the status of your vehicles. This product has helped cut down on our time to the lot and it makes it easy to see where are cars are at all times since I deal with five dealerships. I really like being able to approve work on vehicles with the mobile application when I am off work. This product works like it’s suppose to when everyone uses it properly.

Pros

One of the main features I like is the mobile application that it allows me to check on the status of vehicles when I am off work. I like how easy it is to get service work approvals sent to my phone so I can approve the work and move cars from one status to another without having to actually go back in service. I am also impressed how you can leave notes for the service writers to see without having to stop what you are doing to go talk to them. It’s a great way to keep up with the status of your vehicles as the process moves from service to recon and to frontline ready. Overall I have enjoyed using this application since we switched to it .

Cons

I can’t really say anything negative about the application itself. The only issues I see sometimes is that sometimes people don’t put the status of the vehicle in the right category so you know where your unit stands in there process. That isn’t the application but human error.

Response from Rapid Recon

Redundant

would not recommend for service department

would not recommend for service department

Pros

The graphs and charts that monitor each step are neat, but dont fully represent the process.

Cons

It is one of three software systems that the service department uses for tracking vehicles in the dealership. It is redundant and does not benefit the service department very much. It basically adds several extra steps to the processes that we are already using.

Response from Rapid Recon

Excellent

Excellent

Pros

Love that you can track vehicle progress throughout the entire reconditioning process, but ALSO allows multiple people involved in this process to also track that same progress without having to navigate through multiple sections. Ease of access is 10/10. Doing anything on this software is fairly easy whether you're computer savy or brand new to this stuff. You can track cost, time to lot, effectiveness, and even generate reports that allow you to make the reconditioning process more efficient.

Cons

There are truly no cons to this product.
