As dealerships have become more digitally savvy, back office systems for accounts and general dealership management have become the norm. The problem with that is these systems don’t share data or integrate with each other thus forcing dealers to use multiple software packages and suffer from unnecessary levels of inefficiency.
Click Dealer’s aim from the moment its DMS was born in 1999 has been to consign disparate systems to the history books and give dealers an all-encompassing one stop shop from which to run their businesses. Unlike a generic back-office system, ClickDMS can tell dealers exactly how they are performing, not just in terms of stock management but in all facets of their company.
DMS Provider of the Year 2018
The DMS Provider of the Year has created an end-to-end solution which not only improves dealership performance but also gives them access to better data and streamlined processes to save them valuable time and money.
With a full suite of insightful reports available at the push of a button Click Dealer is able to analyse dealer’s data and provide valuable insights, which have been configured from their KPIs. From stock analysis, team performance and commission calculators to FCA compliant reports, Click Dealer’s innovative system goes the whole nine yards for its dealers and more.
Whilst Click Dealer’s DMS can’t replicate every single piece of functionality from the vast array of solutions on the market, the digital dealership experts use the latest technologies available to allow third party platforms to talk to its DMS, so that dealers can manage their business in one place.
Integration is King
Whether it be chat integrations on enquires, or Xero for accounts, Click Dealer has removed the need for multiple disparate systems and double data entry. The reporting and analytical abilities within ClickDMS are vast, dealers can save time by creating one advert with multimedia options, using video and image editing facilities – then set up automatic feeds to all major portals. They can also increase their professionalism with digital invoicing, document repositories and silent salesmen functionality.
Having been carefully honed and perfected over almost 20 years in the automotive sector, ClickDMS enables dealers to be accurate with VAT analysis, understand where their money is with debtor and creditor reports, stay consistent and in control with PDI prep and after-sales processes, as well as providing the ability to manage stocking plans with ease.
As a cloud based system, ClickDMS can give busy dealers peace of mind wherever they are in the world. The system boasts ultra-tight security protocols and advanced server infrastructures, to ensure data compliance and privacy are taken care of. Not to mention permissions controls, unlimited user log-ons and personalised menu options to give varying levels of control and visibility to different tiers of staff.
The Future of ClickDMS
In 2018 and beyond Click Dealer will be upgrading ClickDMS to include: a new advanced order screen, streamlined finance presentation integrated with its showroom solution, open API integration, and the system is already HMRC compliant in preparation for its dealers to utilise VAT submissions online ahead of the important changes next April.
