Most dealership service departments use some form of stock dispatch number to efficiently delegate repair tasks to their technician team and ensure the proper repairs are performed on the correct vehicle. The RL-78 is the top item ordered from American Automotive by our Service Manager customers, but what do you do with them when the repairs are completed? They are disposed of at the dealership or left behind for the customer to throw away. As handy as they may be, the RL-78 has a pretty short utility life span.
Behold, the combination dispatch number and direct marketing solution:
