Dominion Dealer Solutions Launches Adaptive Automated Commenting Tool for Vehicle Inventory

Dominion Dealer Solutions, the nation’s largest provider of comprehensive inventory management solutions, data services and merchandising tools, as well as a leading provider of automotive data, announced today the addition of adaptive, automated comments to the Dominion Inventory suite. The Dominion StoryBuilder tool gives dealers a quick and efficient way to transform vehicle description data into real-time, engaging commentary for online car shoppers.

By leveraging the existing inventory platform, Dominion StoryBuilder automatically combines data analytics (such as dealer and vehicle information, third-party reviews, crash test results, certifications, warranty status, CarFax history, and fuel economy rankings) with artificial intelligence and consumer-tested narrative to yield the most relevant consumer-focused inventory content. Dominion StoryBuilder, with its ability to learn, provides dealers with an evolutionary process that optimizes and stays relevant for tomorrow’s online shopper. The entire process is automated, requiring zero input on behalf of the dealer.

“Based on the adaptive and intelligent strength of this system and Dominion’s ability to expand existing data resources, new content is continually added to this solution. Dominion StoryBuilder is constantly optimizing -- targeting new content needs based on feedback or opportunity and increasing narrative variability,” stated Jennifer Ryan, director of inventory solutions for Dominion Dealer Solutions.

The addition of Dominion StoryBuilder to the Dominion Inventory suite provides dealers with vehicle stories that deepen consumer engagement and drive more leads. This significant addition saves dealers time and money while concurrently optimizing online shopper interactions. The artificial intelligence of Dominion StoryBuilder is constantly learning and adapting to drive superior online results for both SRPs and VDPs.

Greg Polen, senior product manager for Dominion Inventory Solutions, added, “Dominion Dealer Solutions provides a seamless, automated and utilitarian approach to maintaining complete inventory control. From data collection, aggregation and syndication to market pricing, appraisal or stocking insights, Dominion Inventory is designed around dealership needs. It’s scalable to meet changing demands and provides user control from one point of contact. Dominion StoryBuilder is just one more way to provide a complete offering for dealers to control and promote their inventory.”
