I love Apple products. In fact I do all of my work on Apple with a Macbook Air at home and iMac at the office. Dealers and Dealership Executives tend to love Apple too. The stores offer a different buying experience and the products are great and easy to use.
The top question from dealership executives I am hearing right now is “What about iPads for salespeople or service advisors?”
The short answer is that iPads are coming to dealerships but we can’t say how. Several manufacturers are stating that they will push them as are several software vendors.
That being said, remember the showroom kiosk that was supposed to help customers buy a car? Some of you still have one sitting in the corner collecting dust. I believe iPads are coming but I recommend waiting to adopt until we see exactly how they will work and the ROI.
