Why is Apex Protect a Better Choice?

THE FACTS
  • Apex Protect GPS national average Sales penetration is 71%
  • Other companies average a Sales penetration under 20%
TIMES ARE CHANGING
Lots of companies have just gone through buy/sell’s for various reasons. As Buy-Here-Pay-Here GPS companies work to move into the Franchise New Car Dealer space, companies are dealing with lots of changes and turnover. Don’t be the dealer they learn from as they try to figure out the Franchise New Car space. Apex staff has been preloading dealers for years and has proven the success of their models in dealerships and dealer groups across the nation. After all, we created the automotive GPS program for new car dealers.
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
A cheaper box doesn’t always cost you less money. Other companies sell a cheap box or give you a free box to get your business, but take advantage on the sell through = “home run” mentality. Apex has a “base hit” mentality = make less money on more deals rather than swinging for the fences on a handful of deals. This translates to a better attitude/participation in the Sales department and thus more customer awareness and higher penetrations.
ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL CONSTRAINS SALES
Other companies will only give you one option for sell-through to the customer. This limits your options when selling to the consumer. We give you multiple sell-through options that will fit more deals, resulting in higher penetrations = more base hits.
ALL GPS IS NOT ALIKE
  • Other companies have been in the Buy-Here-Pay-Here space and are trying to adapt the same hardware to the New Car space. The hardware does not work the same. Power management is critical in preloading. They will use the same hardware without adjusting power management – which will kill batteries. In rest mode, our hardware draws less than the clock in the vehicle.
  • Selling out of F&I (one-by-one) is very different than preloading vehicles. Other companies are not versed in the sales process of preloading. Preloading is our only focus. We have been training dealerships in preloading and selling for years.
HIDDEN FEES
Others include a hardwired unit and will upcharge for plug and play harnesses, for Asset Management after initial term, activation fees or other hidden fees. We are completely transparent. We do not charge the dealer for anything outside of the hardware or software amount. We include a plug and play harness and do not charge for Asset Management. (hardwired unit = longer install and risk of voiding manufacturer warranty)
USER FRIENDLY
  • We have a dealer smartphone App. Sales staff can search for vehicles or use filters to find certain models. This is separate from a consumer smartphone App. Other companies have a one-size-fits-all smartphone app or nothing at all.
  • Our user Interface ease of use is far more dealer friendly. Apex management has over 100 years combined experience in the New Car business. We know how to design the features a dealer is truly looking for.
DEALER CSI
Some other companies make the customer call in to activate, (lots of people never call and therefore don’t get what they paid for), at which point the company upsells the customer, which creates CSI issues and cuts the dealer out of that profit opportunity. We do not sell anything to customer at time of sale. We give the dealer all profit opportunity.
EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING
Lots of companies are just now getting into preloading Franchise New Car dealers. These companies either sell one-by-one in F&I or sell to Buy-Here-Pay-Here dealers. Apex focuses only on preloading Franchise New Car Dealers. Apex staff has years of experience in preloading GPS products and have created proven methods to install custom programs and new profit centers for every dealer. There is no other GPS company that has Apex’s level of experience and success in building, training staff and maintaining preload programs for the Franchise New Car Dealer or has implemented a GPS program at more stores. Period.
