Sonic Automotive

Note: Since this interview, Sonic Automotive has rolled out Velocity Automotive’s recon tool to all Sonic locations, nationwide

Cutting down on the amount of time it takes to recondition a pre-owned vehicle is every dealer’s goal. Jeff explains that they rolled out their new Recon tool in a test environment at seven different locations across the country – and that the test has gone fantastic. So far, they have cut at least 2-3 days off their overall recon process, which has led to an increase in profitability and an improved inventory turn.

Jeff further explains that they would be the first national brand to roll out Velocity Automotive’s Recon tool across all its dealerships – and that he is very excited about it.


We have rolled out ReconVelocity in a test environment in seven locations… the test has gone fantastic… It’s dropped [our] recon time 2-3 days at a minimum, which we all know drops more money to the bottom line, helps us sell more cars, and increases the overall velocity of our inventory (turn).

Rick Hendrick Toyota Sandy Springs

Doug Beard, Service Advisor at Rick Hendrick Toyota Sandy Springs, says that the dealership started out using RapidRecon, but they recently switched to Velocity Automotive’s Recon tool. So far, they have found that it is much more user-friendly and simpler to use.

Gerry Ventry, Recon Manager at Toyota Sandy Springs, says that their Recon tool gives them the ability to make sure things are done properly and quickly – and he should know, as he used a competing recon solution, RapidRecon, for two years at other dealerships.

By comparison, Gerry says that, “Velocity Automotive’s Recon tool is much more user-friendly, and that it narrows down all of your information in one click – so we can see everything we need to see in order to improve our entire process. Simply stated, Velocity Automotive’s Recon tool is simply better!”

We’re measuring the efficiency of our recon process, and in two days I’m more familiar with Velocity’s Recon tool than I was after two weeks of using RapidRecon. This is a much more user-friendly tool.

ReconVelocity helps us become a better overall team, improves efficiency, and helps us hold each other accountable.

Vernon Auto Group

Chris Slaydon, President of Vernon Auto Group, says that ReconVelocity is one of the industry’s “hidden gems” – a powerful tool for the used car dealer who knows that the time it takes to recondition a pre-owned car needs to be as short as possible, but without sacrificing a thorough job well done.

ReconVelocity, according to Chris, provides transparent accountability, through its real-time, streaming platform. Every employee involved in the automotive reconditioning process can see his or her current level of efficiency so that the entire team can then be fine-tuned to move cars through reconditioning not just faster, but more effectively. He has seen dealerships go from 7 to 14 days in recon, to 48 to 72 hours – an amazing transformation that gets more cars on the fast track to a profitable sale.

We used this software mostly as a transparency and accountability tool… I’ve seen this software take dealerships from 7-10 days up to sometimes 14 days… down to 48-72 hours (recon time).
