What is a dealer management system and why your dealership needs one

16 Mar 2021 Dealer Management

You may have already heard of a Dealer Management system (DMS) but do you really know all the benefits that they bring to your dealership?

Whether you have little knowledge, are an expert, or anything in-between, this post will bring you up to speed with everything you need to know about what dealer management systems are and what they do.

Let's get started.

What is a Dealer management system?

A dealer management system is a software application that automates and simplifies everyday dealership tasks. It allows you to manage vehicle stock, VAT, Advertising, accounting and so much more all in one central application. Some dealer management systems are desktop based, while others use more advanced web-based technology to give you greater functionality.

What does a dealer management system do?

A DMS will automate all day-to-day manual dealership tasks in one central location. A DMS reduces the amount of admin time spent on manual tasks that often lead to costly errors and greater business costings.

A dealer management system allows you to manage and monitor your dealership much more simply. You can find, enter, and view any area of your dealership instantly without needing to use multiple different programs or sort through paper files.

What makes a dealer management system so beneficial is it can integrate to other essential business software programs to streamline your dealership. For example, you are able to integrate your DMS to your accounting software and send vehicle listings to multiple advertisers at once. 

I know what you're thinking! You may like what you are hearing but at the end of the day you have a business, and you need to limit costs! The costs of a dealer management system are not as expensive as you may think. Some dealer management systems, like EasyCars, only charge you for what you use and how much you sell. So, if you end up selling fewer cars in a month, your costs automatically decrease.
