HOW TOs - Used Car Recon Dealer Software Blog

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.
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.
Simple Recon is a very powerful and effective tool. It helps you track your inventory from acquisition to sale.
The fastest, most accurate way to track these times is to enter the information via the mobile app or the website when the inventory is acquired.

However, it does raise a challenge when you are down a team member or two. To avoid having any newly acquired inventory fall through the cracks we recommend setting up a automated nightly feed.

If you use vAuto, this process is even easier. We are already set up with vAuto to receive nightly inventory feeds for your dealership.

Email us and let us know that you would like us to set up the nightly feed and we will reach out to vAuto support and get this taken care off for you.
In this article we discuss how to start the process and engage multiple vendors at once
