Sleeker* – Summer Cohort 2016
Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of an auto service center?
Well, probably not…
But trust us: the systems that these centers use to schedule your work, create estimates, and communicate with you can make all the difference in your experience and level of satisfaction.
Enter Sleeker, an end-to-end software solution for auto service centers that’s well positioned to disrupt the current market for vehicle service software.
Sleeker’s software is focused on managing workflow that helps businesses increase efficiency and productivity, and allows for more continuous and transparent communication with their customers. It includes dynamic scheduling tools, service and work estimation features, the ability for service centers to communicate directly with customers, and an API for consumer-facing apps.
Jaguar Land Rover, a company that is always finding new ways to increase efficiencies for its service centers and transparency for its customers, has naturally been excited about the potential of Sleeker. Its founder, Phat Le, started as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Incubator and after impressing the team, has moved on up to join the official Summer 2016 Incubator Cohort.
Jaguar Land Rover and Sleeker will work in collaboration to determine how best to extend the Lyfeboat platform for direct vehicle integration for automated service scheduling and fleet management optimization, as well as better supply and inventory management for service providers.
“We’re really grateful to be part of the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Incubator. We started here as Entrepreneurs-In-Residence and definitely learned a lot about the auto industry and the current pain points that many service centers and auto shops are experiencing.
Now that we’ve joined the Incubator program officially, our goal for the next couple months is to finish our pilots with small businesses that we are working with and to continue building out our platform to prove out our business model. We then want to use our technology and those learnings to improve the efficiency and driver experience for larger auto shops and dealerships.” – Phat Le, CEO & Co-Founder, Sleeker
