9 Reasons Why Dealer Groups are Switching to Vincue

Even the largest dealer groups aren’t immune to the challenges of today’s retail market. OEMs, online platforms, and third-party lead providers are all driving down prices — causing your stores to compete on cost instead of value.

Despite this, dealerships have continued to sell cars the same way for years. To help their stores succeed, dealer group principals need to offer them a better strategy. 

The New Strategy for Dealer Groups: Prioritize high gross and high turn with data-driven sourcing, pricing, and inventory management.

Dealers will need the right market intelligence tool to execute this winning strategy. However, not every platform is built to deliver it — in fact, most aren’t. Vincue is different.

With Vincue, we believe in value above and beyond price. Other tools simply encourage you to price lower than your competitors. We help you increase your front-end gross by giving you the tools you need to earn the authentic value of each vehicle.

When you improve the perceived value of your vehicles, your turn improves with it. That’s why we believe you don’t have to compromise margin to increase turn. We help dealer groups stock the right vehicles, get them in front of the right customers, and sell them at a price that’s fair for both parties. 

When it comes to helping modern dealers increase their gross and turn, no other platform compares to Vincue.
