Making the Most of the Integration:

To ensure you’re getting the most out of the Dealer Spike integration with Lizzy, you’ll want to make sure that you’re filling in all the unit fields that are sent from Lizzy to Dealer Spike. These are:

  1. Year
  2. Make (Manufacturer Name)
  3. Model Name
  4. Model Description
  5. Unit Type
  6. Condition (New or Used/Pre-Owned)
  7. Mileage
  8. VIN/Serial Number
  9. Color
  10. Price
  11. Stock Number

Because Lizzy doesn’t require you to enter all of these fields when adding a new unit, it’s worth the time to check your existing inventory for accuracy and completeness prior to activating your Lizzy integration with Dealer Spike. And make sure anyone at your dealership who enters unit inventory knows the fields you want to track, so that new inventory is always entered properly in Lizzy.
