What Our Clients Say

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Customers really love it. Especially if we give them control of the computer and they can start playing with it and begin personalizing their vehicle.

Morgan England - Sales Consultant Chuck Patterson Toyota Scion Dodge

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Anybody that's in the automotive business should be in the accessory business. They should have the Insignia Group come on board as soon as possible, to not do it is foolish.

Brad Marr - General Sales Manager Chuck Patterson Toyota Scion Dodge

I highly recommend it because it teaches the salesman, service manager and parts manager that everybody has a key role.

Our History

A brief outline of what we went through to offer you this superb service today.

In 2000, Insignia President David Stringer successfully launched the branding effort and online catalog services of Prime Source Auto, a Florida-based automotive air conditioning parts brand. As the first fully-online automotive climate control catalog, the Prime Source project grabbed the attention of the Auto A/C division of Visteon, Inc. In 2001, Insignia launched the Visteon online Auto A/C catalog. At the same time, Insignia was developing and marketing ACDelcoPartsOnline.com for ACDelco distributors. This product served wholesale distributors for more than a decade, and in 2004, it received the Catalog of the Year award from the National Cataloging Managers Association.

2000

2002

In 2002, General Motors launched its Accessories Distributor and Installers (ADI) Network to serve GM dealers throughout the USA. Insignia developed a wholesale accessories cataloging system that soon became the default cataloging system for virtually all ADIs from 2002 to 2008. In 2005, GM signed a ten-year data agreement with Insignia. All the while, Insignia added services for GM dealers, which evolved into Insignia’s core product.ACDelcoPartsOnline.com for ACDelco distributors. This product served wholesale distributors for more than a decade, and in 2004, it received the Catalog of the Year award from the National Cataloging Managers Association.

Insignia released its first wheel configurator in 2004, and its first full vehicle configurator in 2005. During this time, Insignia expanded support for both Toyota and Ford dealerships. By 2008, Insignia supported approximately 41 GM ADIs and 1200 GM dealerships. It also diversified its portfolio, by supporting accessories cataloging in approximately 400 other-branded dealerships.

2008

Between 2008 and 2011, Insignia focused on developing the next generation configurator, process automation for scalable software deployments, and increasing support to 22 brands. In 2009, Insignia formed a working relationship with Ford Vehicle Personalization Division and continues, today, to serve Ford dealers and distributors.

In late 2010, Insignia finalized an agreement with Kia Motors of America, followed by an agreement with Mobis in 2012, to support Hyundai dealers. Today, Insignia holds data service agreements with both Kia and Hyundai Motors America. Insignia's services are eligible for local dealership use of the manufacturers' co-op funds, with both corporations. For the past two years, Insignia has held a data service agreement and has co-op status with Chrysler Group, LLC
