More robust analytics and reporting capabilities are coming your way with new enhancements on Modal Desk. Streamlining data and analytics aims to give dealers up-to-the-minute visibility of sales performance.  Dealerships will be able to see shopper trends over time to gain better insights on car buyer behavior during the checkout process. This reporting capability can help sales and operations leaders create data-driven business decisions, especially when formulating new strategies or improving existing processes.


Dynamic F&I product integrations

Modal now partners with JM&A to dynamically show Finance and Insurance (F&I) products within the online checkout experience. This integration empowers customers with more choices during the checkout process, keeping them informed on what valuable add-ons can be included in their purchase.  In addition, this can also help increase F&I profits effortlessly by making these options readily accessible through Modal Checkout.
