As the car shortage continues to escalate, nearly two cars are stolen every minute according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Phoenix-based RecovR is an industry-leading service that locates and recovers a car for dealers as well as individual owners. Its 2-in-1, lot-management and theft-recovery solution has been developed by global tech and security leader Kudelski IoT, a Swiss company whose U.S. headquarters is in Phoenix. Multi-location dealerships in Arizona are among those nationwide that have already reported benefit from the product since its launch in February.
Provided at no upfront cost to the dealer, RecovR also provides improved efficiencies and faster sales with its lot-management features, helps prevent theft or misplaced cars, gives a potential reduction on garage keepers insurance, and provides a high-quality product that creates significant revenue at the Finance & Insurance desk.
The RecovR locator is installed and associated with a vehicle in less than 60 seconds by placing it in a hidden location in the car and scanning the vehicle’s VIN. Because it doesn’t need to be wired into the vehicle, it doesn’t require professional installation and there is no risk of voiding the warranty as wired, battery-connected solutions can. And, because it is completely independent of the vehicle’s electronics system, it cannot be easily detected or disabled by thieves. RecovR is designed for ease of use by dealers, allowing them to use a powerful web portal or an individual mobile device to locate a specific vehicle in real time on or off the lot. RecovR data can also be integrated with a Dealer Management System or other software used by dealers.
RecovR provides consumers the most advanced and reliable wireless theft-recovery solution, which can be used by the car’s owner to find a misplaced vehicle in a parking lot and also triggers immediate alerts if a vehicle is unexpectedly moved from its assigned location. Through RecovR’s app, consumers can instantly share vehicle location with law enforcement via a live tracking URL if stolen or misplaced.
