You can now see how long your inventory is taking to go from any step in the process to any other step.
This allows you to see the underlying inventory that contributed to the times as well as the average across inventory.
Inventory can move from one step to the next automatically or manually.

To move inventory manually, you can use the mobile app or the website.

For the mobile app, log in and tap into your department and select the vehicle you want to move forward in the process.

Select the next step and click 'Save' to mark work complete in your department and notify the next department.

To move inventory automatically, we recommend working with our support team to make sure its set up to meet your needs.

Hope this helps.
Simple Recon accepts inventory feed from all vendors and DMS's.

Depending on the vendor partner, we receive inventory feed once a day to as often as hourly.

We already have inventory feed integrations set up for most of the leading industry vendors including Homent, vAuto, Dealers Link, VinSolutions to name a few.

You can also add your inventory manually through the mobile app, via our website or using the bulk upload feature.

We automatically match VIN and Stock information to make sure there are no duplicates.

Your information stays in your account forever and you can look it up by stock number or VIN number.

If you use a vendor or a DMS that is currently not set up, no problem. We will set up the integration for you at zero cost.
Your inventory can enter the Simple Recon system in a few different ways.
  1. Your used car manager scans the vin from the mobile app and adds it to your account
  2. Your buyer enters the VIN and basic info into the account via the website
  3. As part of the inventory feed we get daily (and multiple times a day for some partners)
If a vehicle got added manually, it will not be duplicated on the data feed as long as the STOCK number or the VIN number match.

Sold cars are automatically marked complete in the dashboard, however ALL information is stored on our servers for as long as you are our customer.
