Interactive Garage – November 2018

In Press Releases by Admin


2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Love it, hate it, or just don’t care as long as your customers are buying accessories for it, the mixed feelings about the new 2019 Chevy Silverado are all over the board.  Needless to say, we are very excited about this 1500 Silverado platform as it creates a whole new vehicle for our team to accessorize with the hottest products from our fantastic list of aftermarket vendors not to mention our OE accessories.

Good news…the bolt pattern for this vehicle remained the same from previous Silverado 1500s (6×5.5), which made getting a generous offering of wheels and tires on this vehicle instantaneous.  And leveling kits from the likes of Skyjacker and Rough Country will get those customers that want that start up package of “lift, wheels and tires” well underway.

Like any new release, the availability of accessories from the aftermarket is going to be limited. Big thanks to the teams at Lund International and Westin Automotive for getting us everything they had currently as well as “To Be Announced”. With the SEMA Show right around the corner we expect to have hundreds of accessories for this vehicle in the very near future. 

More to come!

We know it is not easy to manage and maintain your programs admin. With over 15,000 accessories across all of our vehicles, and adding 300-600 per update, keeping up is a daunting task. So, let us tell you what we are working on.

1. “Manage Products by Manufacturer”

– We will send you a spreadsheet of all the vendors on the program.  If you want to have a vendor and their products always be “Enabled” on your program no matter what new products are added to any/all of our vehicles, we will “Enable” them for you each and every update.

Example: Shop XYZ always wants Lund, Addictive Desert Designs, Fuel Wheels, Rancho Suspension, BFG Tires, etc., etc., etc.,  “Enabled” no matter what is added, our team will log into your programs admin and make all the vendors you identify in our spreadsheet live each time an update is done.

– If that vendor in the example above has multiple pricing options (MSRP, MAP, Jobber), you can tell us which of those you want for your program.  If not specified or available, we will default to MSRP / Retail.

2. New Vehicles

– You can specify if a new vehicle is introduced by a certain OEM (Ford, Chevy, RAM, Jeep, etc) that they are always “Enabled”, our team will turn them on automatically every time one is added.  For example, if your a Jeep Dealership or your business revolves around selling Jeep accessories, you can tell us to “Enable everything Jeep”. So no matter what Jeep is added to the program (Renegade, Grand Cherokee, etc) it will be “Enabled” as soon as it is released live to the public.

Beyond these two options listed out above, the rest will still be up to you to maintain. A true custom program is only going to be as successful as you make it. Spending time in your admin to set up the vehicles you want, vendors and their products within each vehicle, labor time, and pricing (the most important aspect to any successful program is to be on top of your pricing).

Just having the Interactive Garage™ software running at your business on a kiosk and/or on your website is the first step.  Making it custom to your selling needs and then promoting it to your customers is where and when you will achieve the desired results of success and return on the investment.

Monthly reminder to all of you that are active in your adminand looking to see the changes made from your adminto your main user interface to make sure you clear your browsers history or cache.  Each time you make a change to your adminyou will need to do this as most computers will keep showing your previous web page/s if this “cleanse” has not been performed.  We have fielded calls from many of our licensees around this issue, as it is not a software malfunction on our end, rather a built in item on almost all the web browsers out there that we at Interactive Garage™ have no control over (wish we did).
