Service1One Lane Application Recall Masters

ATLANTA, GA – June 12, 2017ELEAD1ONE announces a partnership with Recall Masters Inc., the leading provider of automotive recall news, data, training, and communications, to integrate real-time vehicle recall lookup into the Service1One Lane Management App.

Determining recall status during the mobile check in and initial inspection process saves time, reduces friction and prevents unnecessary upsets between dealers and their customers. It also helps to eliminate the possibility of a recalled vehicle failing to be repaired during a visit to the service center. In addition, informing customers of a recall during the initial check in allows them to better plan their days.

Automotive Recall News in Real Time

“Trust can be a hard thing to establish with service customers. To discover that their vehicle needs to stay in longer for a recall repair – or even worse – that they have a recall which the dealership failed to repair, is not exactly great for customer relations,” said Chris Miller, President of Recall Masters. “Our integration with ELEAD1ONE’s Lane Management Application enables the dealership to inform customers about any open recall in real-time while the initial check in and inspection are done. This then helps build trusting relationships between automotive dealers and their customers.”
