Accessing Remote Apply
To access Remote Apply you can either go into the quoting area to start the journey from scratch or you can start it from an existing lead. For the purpose of this guide we will start the journey from scratch- from the ‘Quick Quote’ area of Showroom.
Selecting a vehicle
Once you are in the quoting area you can create a quote by selecting a vehicle. You can select a vehicle in a number of ways - via VRM, Selection, Quicker Picker, Identifier, Description or search your Stock. Have a play around to see which of the ways suits you to find a vehicle. In this example we are searching via Stock.
Creating a quote
Once you’ve selected a vehicle you can then create a finance quote for the vehicle. Guide your customers through changing things like the deposit, monthly payments, add any contributions etc.
Saving the quote
Once you’re happy with the quote click the save button. To save the quote you need to enter a name to identify the customer. You can create as many quotes as you would like by clicking the save button. You can also select multiple vehicles to create quotes upon, you don’t need to stick to one vehicle.
