FAQ - New Vehicle Ordering
Are ASV's turn rates really 21% better?
Yes. The dealerships that use ASV's Ordering Service, on average, have a 21% faster turn rate than surrounding dealerships. The turn rate is based on Ford's SIMS reports.
Why should we consider giving up control of what we order?
At ASV we do not take control of orders - we have the technology and talent to give control to the next potential buyer entering the market. ASV increases the probability that a potential buyer will find a perfect match, either searching your internet site or visiting your lot. When that happens vehicles move off the lot faster and the buyer is willing to happily pay more to get what they want.
How often do you update your sales and inventory information?
We update your inventory ever day and your sales every week. This gives us a fresh look at all recently sold units and new arrivals when we place your orders.
What is ASV’s relationship with Ford Zone Reps?
ASV has a very good relationships with Ford Zone Reps mainly because we generate buildable orders, within Ford’s weekly constraints, that move off the lot faster than other dealers. A lot of our clients have been referred to us by Ford Zone Reps.
Why do we need you? We have been in the car business forever.
Our only job is to order and monitor new vehicles. We are constantly analyzing order guide changes, tracking new trends, and reviewing data. Our knowledge base and data-driven software puts us in the best position to order your vehicles.
How much does it cost?
Our full service ordering service costs $25 per serialized unit. For large dealerships with prior-year sales greater than 1,200 units (Ford & Lincoln combined), ASV will reduce the per unit charge to $20 per unit. We never charge for unscheduled orders or fleet orders. This price also includes access to our lot manager, inventory search, and wholesale tool.
How long does it take to get started with the Ordering Service?
Once we are given FMC, DSP, and Conceps Logins, we can be up and running in one week. In this time we like to review your inventory practices to discuss advertising units, fleet orders, and general information about your dealership.
