Increased Customer Distraction
Saturated Market Conditions

1 Product, 2 Options
Customized Product for Your Team
We understand no two dealership teams are created alike. That is why Owner
Connect provides retailers with two unique product lines for our Sales Virtual BDC
Traditional Model - The Traditional Sales VBDC provides retailers with "bell to bell" coverage, intense customer engagement & commitment to quality lead conversion at a fixed monthly fee. This product is best designed for retailers who do not have existing BDC operations.
Just Results Model - The Just Results Sales VBDC focuses on appointment to sold conversion only. While adhering to the Owner Connect lead management plan, the Just Results product prioritizes appointment to sold conversion over general engagement. This product is best designed.
