Personalize Implementation

Introduction

Background

Driverbase has developed and trained a vehicle model recommendation engine and is now making this technology available as a plugin for car dealership websites.

Objectives

This new online experience helps drivers quickly find their optimal vehicle and provides dealers a new way to engage with their online consumers using a personalized approach instead of the traditional online car search experience which involves over 900+ online touchpoints.

Standard Installation Instructions

How to Activate Driverbase Personalize [completed by dealership]

Login to your Driverbase Dealer Console account, click “Subscriptions” and add “Driverbase Personalize” to the locations you wish to activate.

Recommender Plugin Provisioned [completed by driverbase]

Once an inventory feed is established driverbase will provision the recommender plugin and share the live url with the dealership and web provider for implementation.

Branding [decided by the dealership]

Dealership decides how to brand the vehicle recommender page:

“What car should I buy?”, “Which car should i buy?”, “Find your perfect match”, “Find your match”, “Car Quiz” or similar.

Plugin Installation Instructions [completed by website provider]

  1. Create a new page on dealership website (page name provided by dealership)
  2. Paste the html snippet below on the new page you created. Note your DriverbaseID can be found in your Dealer Console account under “Recommender Settings”.
  3. Add a link to your top level navigation so users can locate the page.

Advanced Implementation: Dynamically set iframe height

Option 1: Automatically set iframe height to content using CSS

Option 2: Automatically set iframe height to content using Javascript

<script>
  function resizeIframe(obj) {
    obj.style.height = obj.contentWindow.document.documentElement.scrollHeight + 'px';
  }
</script>

<iframe src="..." frameborder="0" scrolling="no" onload="resizeIframe(this)" />

Why? By dynamically setting the height of the iframe you will be able to:
1. set the iframe parameter scrolling=”no” (prevents the need for scrollbars on certain resolutions)
2. remove the iframe parameter height=”X” (prevents white space between iframe contents and dealership website footer area)
