Platform overview

Technology

The Clutch platform makes it possible for dealers and OEMS to offer subscription services efficiently and at scale. The core of the platform is the intelligence layer that understands consumer needs and matches them to vehicles.

What does that mean for typical businesses that run the Clutch Platform?

Low ratio of vehicles to subscribers

The ratio of vehicles to subscribers is low, approaching one to one!

Our software uses deep understanding of consumers to anticipate demand, communicate to arrange flips and match everyone to a vehicle that meets their needs. Many consumers flip into vehicles that were being driven by other subscribers when the reservation was made.

Customers feel like VIPs

Customers give feedback via the mobile app, text messages or face-to-face during deliveries. The Clutch platform captures everything in a form that the intelligence layer can understand. This data is combined with the customer’s historical behavior in terms of flips and driving patterns.

The software uses this information to tailor service for every customer. Everything from suggesting flips to friendly banter to use with customers. Customers feel like you know them and are willing to share more, forming a virtuous circle.

Control depreciation, invest in the experience

Set objectives for your business on customer satisfaction and cost of depreciation. The software determines the optimal vehicle portfolio based on your goals.

Rigorously execute of buying, selling and/or trading based on rules, market data and optimal portfolio. Vehicles are automatically placed into an offboarding queue. The system will work to get those vehicles back from subscribers and track the efficiency of your offboarding process.

The system can optimize any fleet, including dedicated subscription fleets and pooled fleets that serve subscription, loaner and/or test drives. The system can also be used to control depreciation on traditional loaner fleets.

Incredible service in-a-box

Our SideFlip mobile app walks through every step of a flip, including background on the customer, what to say and to ask, and data to capture. You can quickly be delivering great service with only modest training.

The same app manages fleet tasks, including post-flip inspections preparation for the next flip and maintenance activities. The system schedules, assigns and tracks tasks across all of your locations and vehicles. Tasks are prioritized to meet your objectives for customer service and cost of fleet.
