Car showroom equipment

Every car dealership faces the daunting task of storing and tracking vehicle keys. A poorly established process for storing and handing over keys at a car dealership can result in large financial and time costs, as well as loss of customer loyalty. To simplify this process, there is a reliable solution - the use of automated key storage and administration systems for car dealerships.

Equipment of the Mercedes-Benz car dealership PANAVTO

The Mercedes-Benz car dealership PANAVTO is the largest dealer of Mercedes-Benz cars in Russia. Every tenth new Mercedes in Russia is purchased from PANAVTO. Within one month, about 400 new cars pass through 2 car dealerships. Without proper organization of keys, it is impossible to maintain the proper level of efficiency in work processes.

Before the introduction of the Ecos management system, car keys had to be found for a long time, and sometimes they were completely lost.

Moreover, a new car passes through several departments of the dealership: First, new cars are received, entered into the system, then some are displayed in the showroom, some in the warehouse, and finally they pass through the service area before reaching the customer.

The main task is to ensure complete control of car keys at all stages and effectively manage their use and movement.

A total of 12 key administration systems were installed at 2 car dealerships, which are distributed between three main departments as follows:

New and used cars
Several management systems of different designs with a total capacity of 1620 keys are used to administer keys to a fleet of new and used cars. The systems are located in different places, taking into account the characteristics of the car dealership and the routes of movement of employees to the car warehouse.
Car dealership PANAVTO SPb
The premium class system stores keys for cars in the showroom and test drive cars, which is a great support for the sales department. The car dealership employee does not waste time searching for the right key, and the salesperson, in turn, does not waste time waiting, which directly contributes to sales efficiency.
Service area
The third department where the key management system is used is the service area. During maintenance or repairs, the car keys are placed in the Ecos system.

Since the introduction of the Ecos key management system, all processes have begun to move faster and more efficiently. Each movement of the key is strictly monitored, and the sense of responsibility of employees has increased. Now 80% fewer keys are lost than before the introduction of Ecos systems. If the key is lost, the search time is reduced from several hours to several minutes.

Another benefit is that Ecos key administration suites can be used to measure sales activity. Time tracking helps determine the most active period for client arrivals. And based on the history of the keys taken, you can make a rating of the popularity of cars.
