With features including a preloaded memory with over 100,000 4WD, ATV Motorcycle and snowmobile trials, if the “off the beaten” path is what puts a smile on your face than this new unit from Magellan should be in your off road vehicle.

“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 Software program FREE for all authorized Rancho dealers.

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Rancho Performance Suspension & Shocks continues their 60th Anniversary celebration (Since 1955…) by offering their custom Interactive Garage Software program FREE for all authorized Rancho dealers.

Demo link of the Rancho Interactive Garage can be seen by clicking

HERE.

The “try it before you buy it” sales approach has worked in the apparel industry for centuries, why not let Jeep, truck, and SUV owners do the same when purchasing aftermarket accessories. The Interactive Garage Software program featuring Rancho Suspension & Shocks was built around the concept of helping consumers visualize what their vehicle could look like when accessorized with multiple aftermarket products, including Rancho’s full line of suspension products with shock and stabilizer upgrades for every application.

The current process to sell a walk in customer is to shuffle through multiple vendor catalogs that have images of a lifted Ram Truck with a snake painted down the side with more accessories on it than most people could afford in their lifetime. When in reality the consumer has a off the show room floor Chevy Silverado and he/she is just interested in a lift, tire and wheel set up…while only have time on their lunch break.

For online e-tailers, the process is searching one product at a time while looking at static images of products on “representative” vehicles. Adding each part individually to the shopping cart, then “continue to shop” to find the next accessory.  Multiple clicks per product category, multiple products pages, and an obscene amount of time spent doing so.

Rancho Performance Suspension & Shocks wants to help you, our authorized dealers, stop wasting your customers precious time while in the process, helping you sell more suspension systems, shocks, and other add-on aftermarket accessories.  And the best part is, it is FREE!

Teamed up with RCH Designs and their Interactive Garage Software program, the Rancho Interactive Garage has a live URL that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  It can be accessed with any Internet capable device, including ipads, smart phones, tablets, PC and MAC computers.  If you have an Internet connection, you can use the Rancho Interactive Garage.

For brick and mortar retailers, take that unused computer that you have sitting in the back storage room to your sales counter and allow your customers to build their ultimate Jeep, truck, or SUV interactively while visually adding parts and accessories to their vehicle with the click of a mouse (or touch of the screen with affordable touch screen CPU’s).  Close the sale by hooking up a printer and utilizing the “Print Shopping Cart” feature, which captures the users wish list with vendor part number, description and price (per product and total).

For online e-tailers, the IT team at RCH Designs will work with you to seamlessly iFrame in the Rancho Interactive Garage within your website. With the ability to choose either a “Print Shopping Cart” or “Email Shopping Cart” option. Your online shoppers will be able to interact and visually build that dream vehicle he/she has always wanted from the comfort of their home.  And once again this is all available to you FREE as an authorized dealer of Rancho Performance Suspension & Shocks.

Additional features of the Rancho Interactive Garage Software program:

  • Increase accessory purchases as the easy to use interface allows users to quickly accessorize their vehicle with a multitude of parts      from various manufacturers in a manner of minutes.
  • Enhance the customer experience as the easy to use interactive hands off approach for those buyers looking to browse around on their own before any assistance is needed from the experienced sales staff either online or on-site.
  • Reduce returns, as customers will be able to see what the selected products look like on the vehicle of their choice.
  • Educate consumers of the products available for each vehicle buy displaying them visually
  • Shopping cart quickly calculates cost (pre tax) on all the parts chosen during the browsing experience.
  • VIDEO link feature for each product can further assist in a buyer’s decision with “how to” installs or even explain details on a product that might not be evident from an image alone.

  • PHOTO GALLERY feature for each product can further assist in a buyers decision as the manufacturer of the product can populate each gallery with other vehicles with the same product, close ups of the product, or additional feature and benefit points that might not be evident from an image alone.

  • i” INFO BOX. For those products that are interactively shown on the vehicles, the “I” info box is an informative way to show the consumer a few additional photos of the product/s as well as the feature and benefits or description in text format.  For products that are not available interactively (interior & performance), the info box acts as the traditional way that these products are sold online (product image with text) while building their ultimate dream machine.

Interested in using the Rancho Interactive Garage Software program?  Contact ryan@rchdesigns.com or marketing@gorancho.com.

Set up is simple, easy and FREE to all authorized dealers of Rancho Performance Suspension & Shocks.

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.

Interactive Garage Launches with Poison Spyder

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

For Immediate Release

July 24, 2013

The way people browse and purchase accessories in the Jeep® JK world has officially hit a HUGE milestone.  Interactive Garage is alive and selling on Poison Spyder Customs, Inc — changing the way Spyder Nation fans buy their favorite Poison Spyder parts.

“Interactive Garage has been a work in progress for a few years now, we’ve been working with many manufactures to obtain and photograph their products to showcase within the software.   Given the nature of this software it will always be “in progress” but we knew the time had come to take it to the next level – in order to show the potential of what this software can do for manufactures as well as retailers, it was time to go live,” said Ryan Hagel, Owner RCH Designs, LLC & Interactive Garage.

While working with multiple manufactures and trying to determine when and where Interactive Garage would go live first – we were thrilled when Poison Spyder embraced the idea of integrating the software within the Poison Spyder website.

“We thought Poison Spyder would be a fantastic “first live” integration for Interactive Garage as they have a huge online presence and following in both social media as well as on their website,“ stated Hagel.

“The Interactive Garage has added a valuable engagement aspect to the browsing and shopping experience on our website.  It captures our customers attention in a fun way, while keeping them engaged with our products and actually allowing them to visualize their own Jeeps outfitted with Poison Spyder gear.  This results in longer visits to our website and increased emotional investment in the products they are interested in–which leads to increased sales conversions.  The response has been extremely positive, and we’re looking forward to expanding our implementation of the Interactive Garage even further,” stated Larry McRae, President of Poison Spyder Customs.

Interactive Garage is a great selling tool for manufactures and retailers alike, and it will keep growing/evolving as we continue to add more products for the Jeep® JK, not to mention when we start adding additional vehicles & products to the program.

Go visit, play, enjoy, and “Build Your Dream Jeep®!”

Our new Facebook “Share” feature is also now up and running on the Poison Spyder Interactive Garage.  Share your ultimate build with all your facebook friends.  Stay connected to Poison Spyder facebook page, rumor has it they are going to run some promotions and give-aways around those that share their Spyder JK creations built by the Interactive Garage.
