Value to Dealers

  • Opportunity for increased sales: Data clearly shows customers are more likely to return to a dealership that offers a digital retailing solution, leading to more sales opportunities for those dealers. An integrated website allows applicants to estimate monthly payments and quickly access Sheffield Financial’s pre-qualification process with no impact to an applicant’s credit. Dealers will save time and resources with the ability to identify qualified buyers and accelerate the purchase process from online to in-store.

This optimization improves staff efficiency, allowing more focus on personalized customer service.

Commenting on the partnership, Jeff McKay, president of Sheffield Financial, said, “Our collaboration with Dealer Spike enables dealers to effortlessly incorporate Sheffield Financial’s innovative pre-qualification technology into their own Dealer Spike website. This fully integrated financing solution empowers digital shoppers to see if they prequalify without any impact to their credit. Dealers will enjoy an integrated and efficient workflow, as pre-qualified digital shoppers will be available in their Dealer Spike retailing portal.”
