New Openbay subscription service, Openbay+ provides cost savings on automotive services
Openbay+ combines pre-negotiated discounted pricing for all automotive services with a curated nationwide network of automotive service professionals that deliver quality service. Combined with Openbay+’s technology, Lyft drivers will achieve cost savings on automotive services.
Additional benefits of Openbay+ help take the friction out of finding and booking service. Openbay+ will match a Lyft driver with an automotive service professional that can provide the service for their year-make-model vehicle. Openbay+ delivers multiple competitive price estimates upfront for a driver to select from. Drivers can then book a service appointment online right from their mobile device. The entire end-to-end process for servicing a vehicle cost-effectively is now easy and frictionless with Openbay+.
A banner to opt-in to the Openbay+ program is now present on all Lyft driver Openbay+ accounts not already on Openbay+.
Key updates to Openbay+ are discounts on automotive services up to 25%, no credit card required to enroll in the program, expanded coverage areas throughout the U.S., and the removal of the online payment method required to book service (e.g. credit card). An effortless process.
The updated Lyft driver Openbay+ dashboard contains a search-like field to select from thousands of services. Common services are highlighted on the Openbay+ dashboard to facilitate a quick service-selection process. Not sure what service to select? Not a problem. Openbay+ offers a unique workflow to help describe the problem.
The Openbay+ user interface displays upfront pricing to include the retail price, discounted price, and savings (displayed in dollar amounts). Shop amenities are on display for each shop that delivers a price estimate. Lyft drivers may be seeking certain amenities that meet their needs to get back on the road quickly.
Openbay+ allows users to sort based on customer ratings / reviews, distance, and price to find the service center that best meets their needs.
Lyft drivers are able to learn more about a price estimate by viewing individual parts and labor line items in detail. Also included with each estimate, are ratings and reviews by customers that actually had their vehicle serviced by the respective service center, hours of operation, amenities, certifications and more.
Booking a service appointment is a few clicks away – drivers select a date and time for service and receive confirmation of the booking.
