NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
A new alliance between Canon Solutions America, Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., and MOC1 Solutions of Glendora, CA, is designed to help auto dealers eliminate the management and storage of paper in their daily operations.
By going paperless, auto dealers can reduce costs, heighten efficiency and improve productivity.
“We knew we had to take our Intelligent Electronic Archiving System or IDEAS one more step if it was to be a total electronic paper-free workflow solution for auto dealers,” says Mark Sinanian, Canon Solutions America Senior Director of Integrated Solutions.
“Once we looked at MOC1’s Fixed Ops SDSTM solution we realized that when coupled with the IDEAS Auto Capture technology we could offer dealers a very powerful automated workflow package which can deliver a huge return on investment and a lean, more profitable bottom line.”
Dealerships like Fields BMW, Orlando, are using this solution to improve repair order and warranty processes.
“From the intake in the service department to the warranty archive, these two products can ensure that dealers have real-time access and on-demand recall of repair order processes and warranty documentation,” says John Mantione, Fields BMW vice president and general manager.
“During a warranty claims audit having IDEAS is the difference of me paying the manufacturer --or the manufacturer paying me!” he added.
Dave Waco, President of MOC1 Solutions, remarks, “Canon’s IDEAS solution is an ideal and complimentary add-on to our solution. It successfully completes our full circle Dealer software solution. IDEAS goes beyond the print and scan archival model. By automatically capturing critical repair order and warranty claims related documentation, the costs and labor associated with the print and scan model are eliminated.
"The IDEAS Auto Capture feature enables all of the information from our WSA™ to be captured, indexed and securely stored in the IDEAS System. We designed WSA™ to give dealers a true “paper free” service department workflow, and IDEAS completes the concept. We look forward to servicing the auto dealer community together with Canon Solutions America, and to providing an unprecedented paperless solution that helps dealers to be more productive and more profitable.”
Both Canon’s IDEAS and MOC1 Solutions’ SDSTM are compatible with most popular dealer management systems.
