Automotive Media Partners, LLC – Serving Auto Industry Leaders, Car Dealers and High Quality Suppliers

New feature offered as free trial to help dealers sell vehicles during COVID-19Albany, N.Y. – May 11, 2020 – Auto/Mate, a business unit of DealerSocket, has added a remote signing feature to its eDEAL™ Signature Capture digital contracting tool. The new feature is being offered to Auto/Mate’s current eDEAL customers as a free trial, helping them to overcome adverse sales conditions and close more deals while COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandates are still enforced state by state. “We’ve recognized the importance of embracing digital retailing over the past few years,” said Mike Esposito, president of Auto/Mate. “And given the present circumstances, this type of technology has now become more important than ever. We challenged our developers to quickly step up to the plate and provide a solution to a serious problem impacting dealers, and they exceeded all expectations.” When a car buyer agrees to purchase a vehicle over the phone, the dealership representative sends the F&I documents via email. The customer clicks on the link in the email to open the electronic documents and begin the signing process. Similar to how home buyers use DocuSign for real estate documents, all the customer has to do is sign once, then tap to apply their signature and/or initials where indicated. During the signing, the dealer rep can stay on the phone to guide the customer through the process. Once complete, the final documents are turned into a ZIP file and emailed to the customer. Auto/Mate’s eDEAL Signature Capture allows F&I managers to easily capture signatures, store electronically signed documents, and email digital deal jackets to customers. eDEAL Signature Capture can be used on any mobile tablet and resides in Sales & Finance, Auto/Mate’s one-stop-shop for creating and closing deals. All forms are stored as digital PDFs right in the DMS, eliminating the need for physical file storage and 3rd-party scanning solutions. For more information, visit www.automate.com/dms/variable-ops/edeal/ About DealerSocketDealerSocket is a leading provider of software for the automotive industry, offering a suite of seamlessly integrated products to help dealers sell and service vehicles more profitably while improving their customers’ experience.

April U.S. Auto Sales Volume and Pace Likely to Reach Historic Lows

ATLANTA, April 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Historic lows are expected in April as the full effects of COVID-19 are felt across the U.S. auto market for the entire month. According to a forecast released by Cox Automotive, new light-vehicle sales volume is expected to finish near 620,000 units, down 53% compared to last April and down 37% compared to last month. After incorporating seasonal adjustments, the annual vehicle sales pace in April is expected to finish near 7.5 million, down significantly from last month’s 11.4 million and far below last April’s 16.5 million level.

The auto industry has consistent, reliable data reaching back to 1976. In that timeframe, the single lowest sales month was marked in January 2009, in the depths of the Great Recession. Total sales fell to 655,000, and the seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) fell to 9.6 million. The lowest sales pace in the past 40-plus years was 8.8 million, which occurred in December 1981 during the “Double Dip” recession period. Given the massive impact of this pandemic, it seems very likely that the resulting market response in April 2020 will be history making.

Though this forecast is disheartening, there is a silver lining. According to Charlie Chesbrough, senior economist at Cox Automotive, “April is likely to be the sales bottom for the vehicle market during this crisis. Recent sales data suggests demand is starting to recover modestly after the initial shock in March and early April. Year-over-year daily declines, while still high, are consistently showing improvement over recent weeks. Some people want to buy a vehicle or need to buy a vehicle, even in a pandemic.”

Dealership closures, which began in mid-March in many parts of the country, are now being lifted, and sales are slowly improving. Sales should continue to show modest improvement in May as the country gradually reopens, and dealerships implement new strategies to sell and deliver vehicles in ways that are consistent with social-distancing guidelines. For example, more than 10,000 dealers in the U.S. have signed up for Dealer Home Services from Autotrader and Kelley Blue Book, both Cox Automotive companies. And more dealers are choosing to use advanced digital retailing tools, similar to those offered by Cox Automotive, to help customers buy vehicles without visiting a dealership.

Sales Levels Vary Widely Based on Geography

Although the national U.S. auto market is expected to fall 53%, geography is a consideration this month because sales vary greatly across the country. Some places face much more severe infection rates, and consumers are very reluctant to go outdoors. Policy responses from state and local officials also vary, with many states on lock-down for weeks, and dealerships closed in large portions of the country. Sales are down everywhere, but some markets are more negatively impacted than others.

As a result of the diverse geographic impact this month, it is likely luxury and vehicles from the Japanese brands are taking a bigger hit, as those products are stronger in the Northeast and West,
