Automotive dealers benefit the most from LPR due to the high volume of retrievals, daily business flow, service drive request, and the need for accurate real-time data capture. Automotive dealers can easily deploy automated greetings, record client activity, notify managers, and identify additional sales and service opportunities.
HOW DOES OUR LPR WORK?
MDL installs LPR cameras at key locations around your dealership, such as your service drive and car wash. MDL’s LPR system is fully integrated with your DMS, which means instant identification of your service guests that we provide to your staff. This empowers you to greet the guest by name, expedite service initiation and vehicle re-delivery, or even view predictive sales analytics to discuss a trade-in opportunity.
