Canon Waives Fees for Dealers

By Staff Writer July 13, 2020

Canon Solutions America Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., announced it is waiving all set-up and training fees for automotive dealers who are looking to reduce operating costs and increase revenue and profits in their Fixed Operations by implementing the Intelligence Dealer Electronic Archiving System (IDEAS).

IDEAS was developed specifically for the auto dealer industry to help dealers reduce, and in some cases eliminate, expenses associated with printing, scanning, shredding, and storing large volumes of paper.

By transforming the RO process into a virtual paperless model, IDEAS can help to reduce paper handling; this can also help limit contact among employees and customers, in the age of social distancing.

“We realize that auto dealers have been severely impacted by the current crisis, with the resulting downturn of new and pre-owned vehicle sales. They are relying on their service departments to generate revenue and sustain profitability during this time,” said Peter P. Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America Inc. “With a traditional print-and-scan repair order process, the associated expenses can be costly. We are proud to offer this solution in hopes of delivering some economic relief.”

IDEAS captures, indexes, and validates each document against the repair order and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) in real-time, thereby improving the integrity of the warranty archive. That can mean less chance of document-related chargebacks for OEM warranty audits.
