Dealer Tips

  Dealer management software can increase your bottom line.

Running a used car dealership can be difficult if you don’t have the right resources and tools at your disposal. These days there are many companies offering products and services designed to help the used car dealer. If you haven’t taken a good look at dealer management software, now may be a great time to do so.

There are many reasons to use dealer management software, but first and foremost you need it to make sure your dealership is always on the right side of the law. This software provides the latest forms and contracts you need to keep your dealership legal. It also provides programs designed to keep track of your customers, cash reporting compliance procedures as well as crosschecking capabilities with the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC). OFAC requires used car dealerships to adhere to the SND list (also known as the Terrorist List) to monitor individuals who are restricted from doing business with U.S. businesses or whose assets are frozen.

There’s no doubt that by choosing a good dealer management software company you can rest assured you have what you need to be compliant. Did you know that dealer management software can also play a vital role in giving you a clear financial picture of your dealership?

“ Don’t overlook the power of information – dealer management software helps you to be proactive by analyzing trends so you can fine tune your business,” says Michael Frazer, President of Frazer Computing “It helps you make better decisions so you can make more money.”

In order to quickly adjust to market changes you need access to reliable, local information about your dealership. A good dealer management software package can provide you with information such as your biggest profit per day by vehicle make and model in the last quarter. Armed with that data you can make sure to only buy the vehicles that are selling for the biggest profit on your lot. Over time you can also spot trends in your local market regarding vehicle colors, makes and models.

We all know how important it is to get it done right the first time. As a small business owner there’s very little room for error. Dealer management software can help the used car dealer tremendously. It’s not only a tool that will help you get your work done quickly; dealer management software can also help you run your business more effectively.
