Abstract/Artist Statement

In current automotive dealerships, a considerable amount of time is spent locating vehicles in a vast parking lot. Customer satisfaction is a top priority, eliminating test drive wait times is a valuable element. The typical vehicle location process consists of locating a key, and walking to each vehicle in an attempt to match identification numbers. DealerTrack’s aim is to eliminate the inefficiencies of the everyday work environment for automotive dealership employees. DealerTrack is a windows application that creates an interactive virtual map of an automotive dealership. The user interface will include two main pages, Vehicle Map, and Key Tracker. The Vehicle Map consists of an interactive interface with vehicle objects that can be manipulated. Individual attributes (stock number, make, model, color) will be assigned to each vehicle so they can easily be logged and tracked. The Key Tracker consists of a large list of vehicle keys, and the location of the keys in the dealership. Keys can easily be created by management, and logged into their respective locations. A critical feature for key tracking is to indicate the status of a vehicle, including if it is ready for sale. Both pages, Vehicle Map and Key Tracker, will include a search feature, to allow employees to easily locate vehicles. DealerTrack will also include account logins to help assign appropriate permissions to employees. These accounts will be predefined by management teams.
