BATON ROUGE, La. — AppOne announced Wednesday that  it has partnered with myEZCarCare to be the official portal solutions provider of the company's maintenance programs to independent dealers.

Under the agreement, dealers utilizing the AppOne platform can offer myEZCarCare's preventive maintenance services to their customers, either at their own service departments or at more than 1,000 nationwide service chains.

Customers can choose from such services as oil and filter replacements, tire rotations, light and wiper inspections and fluid checks.

According to officials, customers can receive various auto-work discounts as well as automatic maintenance record updating through myEZCarCare's Electronic Glove Box program.

The page can also store such vehicle records as electronic versions of loan, lease, window sticker and sales documents.

The program also sends out e-mail alerts with such information as service reminders and vehicle recall notices.
According to officials, the myEZCarCare Web site and all messages are co-branded with dealer or finance company name, and feature customer marketing message.

"MyEZCarCare provides prepaid maintenance and loyalty programs that help dealers build lifelong customers," commented Ed Bourgeois, president and chief executive officer of myEZCarCare. "In partnering with AppOne, we can expand the reach of this service and help more independent auto dealers offer a valuable service that all vehicles need, as well as begin an ongoing channel of communication with their customers.

"With today's vehicle and gas prices, proper vehicle upkeep is extremely important. myEZCarCare allows the dealer to offer consumers a convenient tool that can ultimately help them save money over time," he added.

"As independent auto dealers face increasing competition from franchise dealerships, AppOne is committed to offering tools and services that will help independents build their business and retain market share," said Lee Domingue, CEO of AppOne.

"While the AppOne platform simplifies the challenges associated with auto finance, such as compliance, loan documentation and risk mitigation, myEZCarCare and its technology help dealers administer a quality service plan — adding yet another benefit to their customers," Domingue continued.
