How to Choose the Right DMS

Auto Tech Outlook | Thursday, November 04, 2021

The companies must ensure their DMS offers the correct functionality and provides greater efficiency and productivity.

FREMONT, CA: A DMS (Dealer Management System) is a dealership's primary hub, bringing together all the functional areas such as sales, accounting, service, and inventory into one system. The appropriate DMS should give companies real-time insight into how business functions, unlock efficiencies in the day-to-day procedures and help put data into profitable growth.

A majority of management at most independent or small automotive shops will tell people that they understand what a DMS is and how it works. Some companies may already have one. Even those who don't have one can see the advantages a DMS could bring to their business.

Choosing the right DMS

A multitude of variables should be considered while choosing the proper DMS for the dealership. It's critical to decide about the DMS with an open mind. Companies can consult with their colleagues to see what they're doing and whether they're satisfied with their solution and vendor.

It is necessary to research before settling for the first item that comes along at a "can't-beat" price. Most essential is to cleanse the mind of any preconceived notions or misconceptions they may have about obtaining a DMS.

Intuitive workflows with a modern, consistent screen interface

The main benefit of a DMS with easy workflows is that it is considerably easier to learn and utilize. Employees increase their speed and are more productive sooner as a result of this. One of the examples on how an intuitive design can streamline the learning process is having a consistent screen across the system with the same tasks and buttons in the exact location on every screen.

Cloud-based solutions

Cloud-based work is increasingly becoming the standard. Even though it is not a mystery that cloud-based platforms are redefining the future for companies of all kinds, people might be surprised to learn that small firms are the earliest adopters. Due to cloud-based architecture, people can manage their business even when they are not in the showroom or office. All they need is a device that can connect to the internet, like a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Security

Companies must depend more on data security as they rely more on working remotely and transferring data outside the walls of the business. The best method to preserve vital information for small firms is to use a good DMS, especially one that runs on a cloud platform. Cloud-based solutions developed on industry-leading platforms like AWS (Amazon Web Service) use 256-bit encryption, one of the most secure encryption methods available today, when it comes to data protection.
