In a world where the parts counter revenue engine is slowing down, eCommerce solution RevolutionParts is helping dealers shift into a new sales gear. RevolutionParts recently became the only parts eCommerce platform to drive $1 billion in total sales for franchised new car dealerships, validating parts eCommerce as an essential way to grow fixed ops revenue.
The opportunity for dealerships to leverage a proven revenue-generator in the online space could not come at a better time. Overall collision parts revenue is expected to decline by 12% per year over the next five years, with new car sales dropping by 2% in 2019 and continuing to trend downward. Smart dealers are turning to RevolutionParts to close the projected revenue gap and compete with aftermarket sellers.
“I believe all OEM dealers should have an online presence,” said Gary Ricci of Quality Buick GMC Mazda of Albuquerque. “If you want to be successful, have a professional appearance, and get online quickly, RevolutionParts is who you want as your online provider, hands down.”
