NEW VENDOR AND A LOAD OF NEW ACCESSORIES
Another NEW fantastic company with deep routes in the aftermarket industry, please welcome Mickey Thompson™.
Talk about coming in hot and heavy, our initial load of products from Mickey Thompson was exactly that. Over 1900 tires were added to all our vehicles along with 4 wheel choices which accounted for over 180 SKUs.
Industry staples such as the Classic wheel as well as their Sidebiter II. And on the tire side, every size offering from 17″ to 24″ on their tires including their Baja MTZ P3, ATZ P3, Deegan M/T, and Deegan A/T. Stay tuned as there is much more to come from this new vendor in Interactive Garage.

TO SEE ANY OF THESE NEW ACCESSORIES ON YOUR INTERACTIVE GARAGE PROGRAM YOU MUST LOG INTO YOUR ADMIN AND “ENABLE” THEM. YOU CAN DO IT BY VENDOR IN BULK OR VEHICLE BY VEHICLE.
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.

CLEAR YOUR HISTORY / CACHE
Monthly reminder to all of you that are active in your admin and looking to see the changes made from your admin to your main user interface to make sure you clear your browsers history or cache. Each time you make a change to your admin you 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).
