New Features Launched
BODY ARMOUR – SPRAYED ACCESSORIES – SPRAY IN BED LINERS – TRUCKGEAR BY LINE-X
Since introducing the Interactive Garage Software program to LINE-X franchisees at the GLC this past February our programmers and designers have been working hard adding all the LINE-X and TruckGear by LINE-X options to trucks, SUV’s and Jeep’s such as:
Full color array of Body Armour finishes.
LINE-X coating shown on bumpers, fender flares, rocker panels and grilles.
LINE-X Spray in Bed liner options from Standard to XTRA.
Full line of TruckGear by LINE-X products including; Floor Liners, Tonneau Covers and Side Steps.
Here is a list of all the vehicles that have the options of adding those exclusive LINE-X features:
– Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
– Jeep Wrangler
– 2015-Current Ford F150
– 2009-2014 Ford F150

We have gone ahead and ENABLED the LINE-X and TruckGear by LINE-X options on all your programs (as we know that takes time to do for each and every vehicle). If, for some reason, you do not want these enabled you will have to go in and disable yourself.
New products for TruckGear by LINE-X will be added to the software by December. Those new products include:
– 4″ Oval Straight and Premium Step Bars (Polished and LINE-X Finished)
– Crossover Low-Profile Toolbox
– Crossover Standard Toolbox
An announcement will be sent out as soon as these products are available.
REAR VIEW – TRUCKS
We have been working around the clock on something that has been on our development board for months. Rear view interaction for trucks to better display LINE-X spray-in bed liner, Tonneau Covers, Tool Boxes, Bed Protection and Rear Bumpers. At SEMA we will introduce version one of this new view on the RAM 2500, with all other trucks soon to follow.
This new view was not easy to achieve in the programming or coordination with vendors that have products in the categories mentioned above. Our initial roll out on this rear view on all the trucks will have the same vehicle as the base image with the correct application part numbers for each product. In other words, if you enter the program wanting to build your dream Chevy 1500 Silverado and a LINE-X spray in bed liner is selected, the rear view of the RAM will appear (as generic as we can make it appear) with part numbers for the Chevy 1500 populating the shopping cart.
As the program progresses and we can get more vendors on board to send products for each vehicle we will continue to roll out this new rear view interaction angle. Hang in there with us. We want this to be as custom, bad to the bone, fun, and most importantly, lucrative for your accessory sales, as you do.
“If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great”. Tom Hanks quote in A League Of Their Own.
We wanted to do a call out to those that are running the Interactive Garage Software on your companies website. Some of you are presenting the program as intended per the iFrame process and others might still need some assistance. Below is a link to a LINE-X franchise that has it done as it was intended.
– From the home page click on the “Build Your Dream Vehicle” banner.
What you will notice is that the “SELECT A VEHICLE” page and main vehicle page never leave the main/base portion of the site (top navigation is always there as is the footer navigation), nor does it pop up another page. The idea around the software is that the user should always feel like they are on the URL and company that they went to visit, not that they are being sent to another location.
Interactive Garage is just software to help you as a retailer of aftermarket accessories sell more of those accessories by making the purchase experience for your customers the best it can be. If your program does not display on your site as shown from the link above, contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you the help you need.
2016 SEMA SHOW
“Help me help you”. Tom Cruise quote from Jerry Maguire
If you are attending the SEMA Show, walking around talking to current and potential vendors, please by all means if your willing, “Help me help you”.
As a team, the more exposure around your use of the Interactive Garage Software program to existing vendors on the program as well as ones that you would like to see on it will benefit everyone. To the point that I also offer a referral incentive program for those that reach out to vendors and in turn get them to sign up as a reflection of your interaction with them. From a free display stand to free month/s (even year) of software license fee waived.
Offer is not just based on the SEMA Show, you can refer a vendor to us at anytime and we will reward you for helping us out. Send email@example.com a report anytime as to who you talked to, when, and their contact info so we can follow up with them. As soon as they are signed on you will not only be rewarded by having their products on your program, we will make sure your well taken care of.
The process of showing customers a static image of one aftermarket accessory at a time on a vehicle of the vendors choice in their catalog, website or flyer is a thing of the past. Letting your customers “Try it before they buy it” is not a fad that is here today and gone tomorrow, it is the way of today and the future of automotive aftermarket accessory purchasing! And all of us at Interactive Garage Software are dedicated to make this program the best it can be for you.
