The system allows that used car customers to buy a car from home.

“The first customer bought a car using the new tool within just a few hours of it going live on the site, which proves just how much potential it has.”

Darren Sinclair, chief customer officer for Modix, added: “We know that consumer expectations are changing, and research published in the 2019 Cox Automotive Insight Report revealed that car retailers are extremely focused on offering online transaction capability.”

“This tool helps to fulfil that need, giving consumers a simple, efficient way of reserving a used Nissan wherever they are, so all that’s left to do is visit the dealership to collect it.”
