PETRA OIL TO UNVEIL “GAME CHANGING” DEALER TECHNOLOGY AT AAPEX 2015

“PetraSync” Software Opens a New World of Service and Parts Department Transparency to Improve Cost Management, Increase Profit Margins

HOUSTON (November 2, 2015) – Petra Oil Company (https://petraoilco.com), a leading U.S. automotive aftermarket company, will announce and demonstrate its “PetraSync” technology at AAPEX 2015, Nov. 3-5, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas (booth #5022). PetraSync will give dealers, for the first time, the technology to remotely manage their parts and service departments for increased efficiency and sales performance.

According to Petra Oil President Arnold Gacita, “PetraSync is a game-changing technology for dealers.” The PetraSync software will provide dealers the never-before ability to easily read and monitor – even remotely – their parts and service departments for real-time insight on sales effectiveness, optimizing inventory, and calculating commissions.

PetraSync will “redefine what it means to effectively manage parts and service departments, as well as your service technicians, even when you’re hundreds of miles away from the dealership” according to Gacita. Specifically, PetraSync’s technology will:

  • Provide information that identifies weak points in the service offering;
  • Identify missed sales opportunities;
  • Assist in correcting weak points and missed opportunities that hurt profitability;
  • Visualize your Parts Department inventory and profits;
  • Capitalize on Service Department sales, profits and opportunities;
  • Show who is selling and who isn’t;
  • Permit dialing-in to the dealer DMS.

The reaction from several early-adopters supports Gacita’s claims that the PetraSync technology opens new levels of transparency into the service area. Tom Sheehan, Dealer Principal, with Sheehan Buick GMC, says “We’ve been able to use the insights from the PetraSync system to raise Petra-related parts and service revenue by 50% over the past year.” Similarly, David Puterbaugh, Sales Manager with FEA Distributors, reports “The PetraSync system allows us to have much more intelligent conversations with our dealers.  It also allows us to do targeted training campaigns to improve sales outcomes.”

PETRA BREAKS GROUND ON NEW HOUSTON WORLD HEADQUARTERS

U.S. Automotive Aftermarket Chemical Company Doubles Business Revenue Three Times in Five Years

Petra Oil Company (https://petraoilco.com), a leading U.S. automotive aftermarket chemical company selling to professional installers, has broken ground on Phase I of its planned 65,000 square foot corporate campus in Northwest Houston. Petra purchased the land at 11085 Regency Green Drive and expects to complete and occupy Phase I of the planned Five Phase campus by January of 2016.

According to Arnold J. Gacita, Petra Oil President and CEO, the company’s 300 percent revenue growth over the past five years equates to doubling the company’s business revenue three times and results in the physical need for a significantly larger operations facility as it expands operations worldwide to Asia and Latin America.

“Petra’s products have been so well received in the global automotive aftermarket that since the company’s beginning in 2010, we’ve already outgrown three buildings,” said Gacita. “Petra’s new world headquarters will be a home able to keep pace with the company’s continued growth and success. As of today, Petra is providing products and services to more than 23 countries, and that number is increasing, on average, every month. Petra Oil was founded on the principle of manufacturing top quality automotive aftermarket products and marketing them to professional installers through truly innovative programs. In the five years since its founding, Petra has become recognized in the industry for unmatched service, excellent products and an ability to drive revenue for its professional installer customers.”

The Petra story is one of triumph in the midst of a challenging economy that has seen Petra’s competitors lose market share. Gacita says Petra’s ability to weather the economic storm and maintain its growth is due to its customer focus. According to Greg May, Owner of Waco, Texas based Greg May Honda, the number one U.S. Honda dealer to work for according to a recent ranking by Automotive News, “ In the past 12 months, our Petra sales revenue has reached $200,000. Petra is a huge boost to our gross and shop hours and gives our customers a wide variety of great products to help increase the life of their automobiles.”
