NEW VEHICLES, VENDORS & PRODUCTS ADDED

Once again, a very busy month in the production department, with 2 new vehicles added, new vendors to introduce and over 600 new products added to the Interactive Garage Software™ program.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

2018 FORD F150 & DODGE® CHALLENGER

Populated with products from some of our top vendors, both the 2018 Ford F150 and our first muscle car, 2017-current Dodge Challenger are new and exciting vehicles for Interactive Garage Software™.

Both vehicles have a lot of room for improvement, we won’t hide that fact. The F150 is so new that most vendors don’t have part numbers for them yet, but they will be trickling in this month as we had many vendors told us at SEMA that this new vehicle from Ford is on the top of their list.

Yes it is just a start, but we are especially excited about the Dodge Challenger, our first muscle car to hit Interactive Garage Software™.  With AVS launching a full new product line for this vehicle in their booth at SEMA, we were lucky enough to be the first to get our eyes on it, and better yet the use of Interactive Garage Software™ in their booth to let people build their ultimate Challenger. As you will see in the admin, this new product line from AVS is so new that part numbers and pricing has not been released as of yet.  Use this vehicle with the AVS parts on it for the time being as a great way to show your customers what is to come in the very near future from AVS.

We also worked with our newest wheel vendor, Forte Wheels (a division of TireCo), on the Challenger.  Of which, Forte also had the Interactive Garage Software™ running in their SEMA booth to display Forte Wheels, Sendel Wheels and sister company Milestar Tires on full display.

***As a reminder, to view these new vehicles on your Interactive Garage program you must go to your admin and “ENABLE” them by vehicle.***

WELCOME TIRECO AND THEIR LINE OF FORTE

WHEELS, SENDEL WHEELS AND MILESTAR TIRES

 

 

Really excited about this line of products from Forte, Sendel and Milestar. Every application of Sendel wheels are on all of the Interactive Garage Software™ Jeeps and Trucks, as are the Milestar Patagonia M/T’s from stock replacement sizes to their 40″ tire just released at the 2018 SEMA Show.

Forte Wheels will help start off our line of muscle cars from the latest released Challenger to the up and coming Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro.

For more information on products from TireCo, please contact Martin Castro at Martin.Castro@tireco.com

“How do we add products…..”

Last but certainly not least, something that we have been asked about time and time again.  “How do we add products to the Interactive Garage Software™ Program that aren’t already available”?

This is a very slippery slope and one that we have thought about since introducing Interactive Garage Software™. A portion of how we stay in business and continue to upgrade and update the software is from the funds received from vendors to add their products to the program. Our goal and intension for this new program to our licensees is to help expand the offering of those vendors that are already a part of our family.

This is not an open flood gate offering to allow any and all products from various vendors shot from a one mega-pixel 1999 cell phone. So please don’t think that just because you submit an image to our team that it will be automatically added to the software.  Each product will be examined and reviewed and those approved to be added to the software on a timely manner.

The video does a great job outlining what is necessary in the image process needed, including angles necessary for each vehicle, lighting set up, etc. What is not mentioned is the back end data necessary as we are not product experts in every vendor line out there in the market.  Additional info needed for each product include:

- Product Part Number (Vendor part number)

- Product Description (Vendor exact)

- Pricing (Jobber, MSRP, and MAP when and where available)

All images and info will be submitted to ryan@interactivegarage.com or images@interactivegarage.com directly. A follow up email will be sent to each submission as to its approval or denial.

Please be patient with us on this. As many of you on this eBlast notification are one of our valued licensees and/or vendors of the software it is our goal each and everyday to make Interactive Garage Software™ the best it can be…for all of you.

Interactive Garage signs on Lund, AVS, AMP Research, and Belmor

Monday, September 8th, 2014

As we continue to grow our data base of vehicles and accessories on those vehicles, it’s great to have new vendors come onboard that have the same passion and excitement about the software as we do here at Interactive Garage.

“After viewing the software live in the 4 Wheel Parts Performance Center in Compton, CA., Lund International CEO Mitch Fogle and Marketing Director Joe Thompson, immediately called me to find out what it would take to have their companies products on Interactive Garage, stated Ryan Hagel, Owner RCH Designs, LLC & Interactive Garage.  One of the many features of the Interactive Garage software is the ability to have a custom background designed so that the software can be used on company websites, at trade shows and by sales representatives.”

In addition to signing up on the program without hesitation, the team at Lund International decided that this software was something that should be used for more than just 4 Wheel Parts locations.    So much so that if your attending the 2014 SEMA Show, you’ll want to make a point to stop by the Lund International booth and take a look, or should we say EXPERIENCE what the Interactive Garage software looks like in action on a 80-inch screen.

The “Get The Look Configurator” will be available to view, interact and enjoy at the Lund International SEMA Show booth all week.  Booth number for Lund, AVS, and AMP Research is #30121.  We look forward to interacting with you soon.
