Save more, deal more with a suite of electronic solutions
Every penny counts in today’s market of high interest rates and the risk of a recession. While customers are still lining up to buy new vehicles, used car prices are dropping. Your dealership needs to drive as many deals as possible — as efficiently as possible — to boost revenue while holding down back-office costs. Only Dealertrack offers a complete suite of registration and title solutions to finalize deals faster while helping to save time and money.
Get used vehicles resale-ready faster.
A manual vehicle payoff and title release process takes 12-18 days1 or more for most dealerships. During that time vehicles can’t be sold, and dealers shell out an average of $402 in holding costs every day for every vehicle that sits idle. That includes the cost of storage space, labor, insurance, interest charges, and more. Now multiply that by how many trades you take in every year and think about how inefficient processes are delaying resale and eating into profits.
The Dealertrack Accelerated Title® solution connects with more than 110 lenders to speed payoff and lien and title release 70% faster1, so dealers gain lien and title release as quickly as 4 to 6 days. Faster lien and title release and minimized holding costs lead to a better bottom line while maintaining a wider selection of used inventory from trade-ins.
Gain back-office efficiency.
Paper-based processes are time-consuming and costly. Filing Virginia DMV paperwork adds labor expense to every deal, and combined with money spent on paper, printing, postage, and even physical trips to the Virginia DMV, your bottom line suffers.
You can gain back-office efficiency when you transform your paper trail into an electronic process where documents are completed and submitted online. Dealertrack’s in-state registration and title solution helps you submit transactions 35% faster when integrated with your DMS3, helping you submit transactions to the Virginia DMV in under 4 minutes4. Efficient processes pay off by helping you get more deals out the door in less time.
Close cross-border deals with ease.
Inventory shortages continue and that means more buyers are crossing state lines to find vehicles. In fact, the average buying radius for shoppers has nearly doubled over the past four years to more than 89 miles5. Out-of-state deals can be confusing with state-specific requirements, taxes, and fees. There’s a lot to keep track of, which can slow down the back office and negatively affect the customer experience.
A 50-state registration and title solution relieves the burden on the back office. Dealertrack RegUSA® helps you deliver customer-specific deal scenarios based on taxes and fees so you can ensure the right deal for the dealership and the customer, no matter where a customer lives.
Whether you’re selling vehicles in-state or out-of-state, or taking them in on trade, Dealertrack can help you with all your reg and title needs. We are proud to be the exclusively-endorsed Reg & Title partner of the Virginia Automobile Dealers Association (VADA).
