Everyone is asking...
Wouldn’t it be great if… I could buy a car the modern way, with more convenience and transparency like I can with other products?
Yes it would be!
But it’s just not possible today.
"You have got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology, not the other way around."
- Steve Jobs
Another key question is...
What is keeping dealers from modernizing car buying?
- Fear of organizational change and reduced profits
- Inadequate Technology
- Traditional siloed sales processes
Who is in the best position to help dealers break through these barriers?
Dealers – because the answer was not going to come from Silicon Valley, A2Z was developed from ground up by dealers, for dealers, to provide:
- A modern in-store transactional platform
- Expertise to re-organize your store around a Single Point of Contact car buying experience, because we have done it for many dealerships
- An implementation blueprint that drives higher customer satisfaction, employee retention and dealer profitability

SPOC powered by A2Z Sync delivers these powerful results:
For Car Buyers
Customer satisfaction rises through much faster transaction times, less friction and more transparency.
For Sales People
Employee acquisition, satisfaction and retention are improved through enriched job content and better compensation.
Dealers gain market share and post higher PVRs through higher sales volume and greater operational efficiency.
Wait a minute... doesn't Digital Retailing fix the customer experience?
Typical digital retailing tool
Even though Digital Retailing is on the rise for good reasons, in-store sales will continue to be the dominant retail mode for a long time.
The core car buying experience needs to be reinvented from the inside-out (i.e. in-store first) rather than from the outside-in (via website tools)
How does SPOC powered by A2Z Sync improve Customer Satisfaction?
Unlike the traditional car buying process, A2Z Sync was designed through the lens of the ideal customer experience by:
- Delivering a faster, more convenient buying process; often in one hour or less
- Creating trust through transparency
- Making the customer feel more in control of the process
How does SPOC powered by A2Z Sync increase Employee Satisfaction and Retention?

- Elevating the scope of sales and management positions
- Providing more career potential
