Software can help remove barriers to distributor success, but given the multitude of products on the market, store owners need a place where they can find the services they need in one package. I’m doing it. At NADA, CBT News anchor Jim Fitzpatrick sits down with Vehlo CEO Michelle Fisher, Velocity Automotive founder Hugh Hascock and Executive Vice President Kara Hascock and a range of innovative playback solutions and recent acquisitions by Vehlo.
1. Vehlo provides software solutions for three verticals of the automotive industry: retail, aftermarket and payments.
2. 80% to 90% of dealers still use spreadsheets to manage the recalibration process.
3. Vehlo introduces Velocity’s remanufacturing platform to its retail and aftermarket service suite.
Four. Kalah and Hugh Hathcock will remain on the Velocity team, working with Vehlo to continue overseeing operations.
Five. Software has become an integral part of competitive retailers. Improving the accessibility of digital services also helps the playing field for large and small stores.
