HIGHLAND PARK, MI - January 11, 2010 – General Motors and Helm, the Highland Park-based specialty fulfillment and brand support solutions company, recently launched Gmextras.com, the official online store for General Motors licensed accessories. The store centralizes items made by GM-licensed manufacturers, such as floor mats, splash guards, roof racks, towing parts, and cargo and trunk accessories.
The launch of Gmextras.com makes Helm the administrator of four online stores that support GM customers. The other stores are
• gmrestorationparts.com, for official GM Restoration Parts;
• gmnavdisc.com, for updated navigation discs for GM Navigation Systems;
• helminc.com, for factory-authorized service and owner information.
“Bringing Gmextras together with these other e-Commerce platforms benefits both the customer and General Motors,” said Jessica Rogers, GM Licensed Accessories Assistant Manager. “GM customers now have a one-stop-shopping-mall experience with convenient access to GM products, and the corporation can take advantage of common administrative processes, marketing, and customer service."
Helm will increase Gmextras’ visibility using search engine optimization, social media, and direct marketing strategies according to Garry Cole, Helm vice president of marketing. Helm will also develop cross-promotional strategies and leverage traffic from all four websites since they attract similar dealer, aftermarket repair facility, and consumer audiences with needs relating to vehicle parts, accessories, and service information.
