Autovance Technologies Release of Desk for the US

Industry-leading desking platform leverages MarketScan data for Dealers in the US

LETHBRIDGE, Alberta, Feb. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Autovance (a Quorum company TSX-V: QIS), a software development company specializing in digital retailing solutions for auto dealers, announced that its industry leading desking system for automotive dealers, Desk, is now available to dealerships in the US. 

Autovance Desk is a proven leader in the field of desking tools in Canada, with growth of over 162% in the past 3 years in that market.  The system helps dealers boost their lease penetration and increase gross margins, while achieving high levels of customer satisfaction by increased transparency of customer payment options and decreased time required for presenting payment options to customers.

The company has been working with a select group of dealerships in the US since early 2019 to ensure the product meets the needs of that market.

“We have worked diligently over the last 9 years to build the strongest desking tool in the market. Our clean and easy-to-use interface for dealership sales personnel, accurate and up-to-date incentive program updates and, most importantly, our outstanding customer financing and leasing presentation capabilities are what has propelled our success so far,” says Autovance Vice President, Rick Johnston. “We partnered with MarketScan to bring the most up-to-date incentive, rate and residual data to our US dealership customers and, after completing successful pilots, we are ready to offer the system to dealerships in the US, initially by leveraging our DMS partnership with Quorum’s XSellerator, where the system is fully embedded within the XSellerator Sales CRM process.”

Autovance invites dealerships to come see its Desk and F&I Menu products at the NADA Show in Las Vegas February 15th – 17th, 2020 (Booth #3292C).
