Aeris, a specialist in the Internet of Things (IoT), Dealer-FX, the service lane technology provider for automotive retailers and OEMs, and Mitsubishi Motors North America today announced a partnership that enables Mitsubishi customers in the U.S to schedule and manage service appointments at Mitsubishi dealerships from the My Mitsubishi Connect app.
The Aeris Mobility Services platform’s integration with Dealer-FX’s ONE Platform enables users to view service and maintenance needs as reported by the car and then schedule appointments in seconds.
“Our partnership with Dealer-FX and Mitsubishi Motors North America kicks off Aeris’ next chapter of work to help auto OEMs engage much more closely with their drivers. By enabling connected vehicle app users to easily take care of their vehicles via their dealerships, we’re promoting more dynamic customer engagement, and that can lead to more powerful brand loyalty for the future,” says Kunal Rupani, head of Product, Platform and Mobile, Aeris.
Dealer-FX’s ONE Platform is a cloud-based system that integrates with OEM data, DMS providers, and third-party systems to make service departments more efficient and profitable. “With innovative mobile solutions, we help OEMs and their dealers deliver the best experience to their customers at every stage of service,” said Adam Kraft, director of OEM Product Management. “Partnering with Aeris and Mitsubishi enhances the customer experience for Mitsubishi owners by making vehicle maintenance care simple.” Kraft added.
