Codirect stepped in with its people- and process-free system, applying a multi-pronged approach that included recovery, campaigns, and retention triggers while focusing on the acquisition of vehicles to add to Mountain View’s dwindling inventory. After integrating with Mountain View’s DMS, Codirect’s technology went to work putting its brand, face, and voice ahead of the competition with video at the center of each piece of communication delivered on behalf of the dealership.


Thanks to Codirect’s transparent reporting, Mountain View Chevy was able to see exactly what was working, down to the individual customer. During this time, Mountain View saw 5,182 total repair orders, 1,647 (32%) of which were touched by Codirect. The blended gross profit* of customer pay and warranty pay resulted in $215,495. Throughout the same period, Mountain View saw 502 total sales and acquired 248 vehicles. 78 (16%) of those sales and 60 (24%) of the acquired vehicles were touched by Codirect. Sales revenue of $5,353,081 for these 78 customers generated a sales profit of $793,840. When combined, blended gross profit from ROs and sales profit came to $1,009,335.

We’ve experienced great results with CDS automation. It works around the clock, and it’s the best tool I’ve ever used to retain customers.
