Hello Capital Auto Group,

Happy New Year and thank you again for all the hard work in 2018. I look forward to our journey together in 2019. So here we are the first edition of Capital Connected. What is this? It is a way for Capital to get Connected. We think that you all have a lot of super stories to tell about the great things happening at each location of the Capital Automotive Group.

There are many individual accomplishments that need to get recognized, and many team triumphs too.  We wish to celebrate long term employees and welcome the new. We wish to tell stories of who makes the Capital Auto Group really work. Plus we want to tell you what’s going on around the corner. The first issue is a little longer because we wanted to get you caught up for last year. In future editions we hope you join us in telling a good news story from your corner of the Capital Auto Group.

See you soon,

Dan Broderick

2018 was a great year for carma. Though the size of our team reduced in the second half of the year, we were able to complete our tasks in a timely fashion.

In 2018, we were able to finish the implementation of SalesBoard (version 1), and deploy it in all 5 Capital Auto stores. We have also added automatic callback from Trade Gauge, and digital inspection features to it.

We have also been able to keep our social media channels updated with content that are both appealing to the dealerships and general public (instagram, facebook).

In order to expand our services to more clients, we have done separate presentation to some big names in the automotive industry as follows:

  • Ford Motors Canada: Presented the concept of “Quick Mechanic” that can potentially replace the paper-based inspection sheets at the QuickLane locations.
  • CSN Auto Body: Presented a partnership proposal that will enable us to create a synergy between the body-shop operations and sales departments in dealerships by generating qualified leads from the vehicles that are being serviced at the body shops..

Though 2018 was a great year for carma, we are looking forward to 2019 to explore new opportunities to even further grow our business.
