Driving Sales Online: New Dragon2000 Website Integration With Codeweavers Checkout
31st March 2020
Dragon2000 are reminding car dealerships that they should move as much of the buying process online as possible, during the period that their showrooms are unable to operate as normal.
There are still consumers for whom it is essential to complete a car purchase during this period, such as key workers who need to get to work or those needing to attend medical appointments who perhaps have an unrepairable vehicle and have no option but to buy now. Buyers in this position will be looking to purchase online, and it needs to be as easy as possible for them.
You will likely also still be fielding enquiries from prospective customers who don’t have an essential need for a vehicle right now, but are still doing their research. They will be ready to buy as soon as the lockdown restrictions are over, so it’s important to make sure your website is up to date and you have all of your stock advertised with full descriptions and photographs.
Those dealers offering online journeys that include such features as sales videos, online finance and collection or home delivery adhering to social distancing rules, will be much better placed to navigate the current challenging conditions than others who don’t embrace the online sales process.
Car dealers who have a Dragon2000 built website can now benefit from an additional integration with Codeweavers’ Checkout platform, that when added to your website lets your customers take all the steps of the buying journey online.
The seamless integration itself is free to Dragon2000 website customers, and Codeweavers are currently offering their Checkout platform free for 3 months, which allows your customers to complete the whole buying process online, without setting foot inside the dealership.
