AUSTIN, Texas — June 1, 2020 – Dealerware, the leading connected car platform, has been named the preferred provider by Jaguar Land Rover Canada to power its courtesy vehicle program. This decision expands the program, following a successful roll-out as the preferred provider for Jaguar Land Rover’s US retail locations.
“We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with Jaguar Land Rover North America,” said Russell Lemmer, President of Dealerware. “We’re committed to providing innovative digital solutions that customers love while evolving our platform to meet their current needs, reducing their anxiety, and ultimately making them more profitable.

We’re saving thousands of dollars a month in fuel recovery and most importantly, we’re delighting customers with a more modern experience,” states Damon Spears, General Manager, Jaguar Land Rover Austin.
The company recently adapted its offerings to provide contactless contracting to all customers which gives dealers a seamless and safe way to deliver courtesy vehicles, offer extended and at-home test drives, and enable pickup and delivery, all without compromising the health of their employees and customers. This feature eliminates handheld device sharing while elevating customer experience and respecting social distancing guidelines.
