SECURE FILE TRANSFER FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

 

As all Auto dealers know, leasing, financing, or outright selling a vehicle requires a hefty amount of due diligence and a lot of paperwork that contains Consumer Personally Identifiable Information (PII). At a Dealership today, most of the necessary documents are sent digitally via text or email, on personal devices of sales staff (including the text and email in and out of CRMs like eLead, Focus, DealerTrack, etc.) All of this traffic is NOT encrypted in transit today. When the new Safeguards rules are enacted all of these items will be violations per the FTC Safeguards Act.

SECURE FILE TRANSFER FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Here at Botdoc, we’ve engineered a better way.

The automotive industry is completely different than it was a few years ago. Today, the car buying experience almost always starts online. Buyers are beginning to prefer a digital process from start to finish. And auto dealers need to be able to provide them with exactly what they want to ensure good reviews, referrals and an overall smooth experience.

When a potential customer is ready to test drive and purchase, most dealers will request that they send several documents digitally. A dealership MUST set up new systems like a bank where the consumer must login to tools like secure email, download an app which all require account, PIN and password for a software system they’re unfamiliar with and unlikely to use again. This is NOT ideal for ease and simplicity of the car buying process.  This will lead to countless questions from the customer and a frustrating experience for both parties with new software and troubleshooting logins, and be a significant cultural change for adoption with sales staff.  Let’s be honest…99% of all customer communication is over unsecured text and email today and that will be hard to change.
