Xtime and Dealer Tire Bring Tire Selling to the Service Drive

Dealer Tire and Xtime today announced a new partnership that puts tire selling at the fingertips of service advisors. Dealer Tire’s digital selling solution and inventory information is now accessible through Xtime’s tablet-based service lane solution, Check-In 7.

The integration places Dealer Tire’s eServices tire catalogs into Xtime’s Check-In 7 via a tire selling interface designed specifically to blend seamlessly with the Xtime design. Service advisors can present customers with vehicle-specific, comprehensive tire recommendations and pricing, check inventory for availability and enable an immediate purchase. Dealers retain the customer’s business at the point where consumers often first take their vehicles to the aftermarket, while consumers get a transparent, convenient method for maintaining their vehicles.

Service advisors no longer have to leave the customer and return to their desks to retrieve tire information because it’s at their fingertips. They can sell tires during the check-in and walk-around inspection processes and capture approval signatures when customers are ready to buy.

“The integration with Xtime’s Check-In 7 makes it easy for service advisors to sell tires on the service drive,” said Dealer Tire Partner and Chief Sales Officer Cindy Stull. “We are excited to be working with Xtime because we’re really in the same business: helping dealers retain customers while increasing service and parts revenue.”

Xtime and Dealer Tire each have relationships with more than a dozen automotive OEMs in North America, comprising thousands of dealerships.

“Dealer Tire shares our dedication to helping dealers deliver the best service experience to their customers, and we’re pleased to bring this new functionality to our mutual dealer customers,” said Xtime CEO Neal East. “This is just the beginning of what Xtime and Dealer Tire can accomplish together.”
