ZiiOS, the powersports industry’s leading cloud-based DMS, and McGraw Powersports Group, a leading service provider of insurance and extended coverage products, announced a new partnership at last week’s AIMExpo in Orlando. Dealers who offer McGraw’s Western Service Extended Contracts will be able to seamlessly complete those contracts for new and used units directly from the ZiiOS platform. ZiiOS is a division of Dominion Powersports Solutions.
Dealerships will see an immediate impact on profitability, making it easier to offer and sell Western Service Contract (WSC) agreements. Dealership staff will no longer need to manually check for warranty coverage and cost or write the document. Data appears immediately within ZiiOS and can be used for future reporting of sold agreements or future agreement offerings.
“In tough economic times, dealers have been looking for an inexpensive but feature-rich DMS platform, and now they have it with ZiiOS,” said Troy Billen, assistant vice president of sales for McGraw Powersports. “Rather than investing operating and investment capital in hardware and software that either becomes outdated or costs a fortune to maintain, ZiiOS is a simple cloud-based subscription service that lets dealers operate profitably from inception. We believe this ‘dealer first’ approach is a successful model and that ZiiOS is, and will continue to be, the trend setter in this arena.”
Western Service Contract Corp. is one of the nation's largest independent motorcycle and personal watercraft service contract providers. Dealerships that offer Western Service Contracts can provide additional protection for customers beyond the manufacturer's warranty, allowing motorcycle and personal watercraft dealers to establish long-term relationships beyond the initial sale.
“ZiiOS is thrilled to provide this seamless and profitable integration to all dealership sales/F&I departments,” said Tifani Daves, director of sales for Dominion Powersports Solutions. “Right from a ZiiOS sales deal, you can easily quote WSC products available for the specific year/make/model selected and automatically include those items in vendor financing and payments. The WSC agreement is ready to print with all your other sale documents.”
Daves further stated, “McGraw Powersports and its entire team have proven to be in sync with the ZiiOS mindset, being completely dealer-centric. This is a great dealer-benefiting partnership.”
Billen continued, “The dealers in our network will benefit in countless ways, but the primary benefits with ZiiOS DMS are fully-integrated contract creation and generation, affordable dealer operations, and data-driven decision making. Dealers get McGraw’s lowest-cost service contracts and the most cutting-edge DMS system from ZiiOS – all at a cost that promotes efficient and profitable dealer operations.”
