Our journey began inside a dealership years ago as we looked for more efficient processes to mange our dealership with. Our expenses continued to rise, our margins declined and finding a talented workforce became more difficult. Each year we found that things became more complex and required more analysis.
We used various tools and applications to improve our situation but noticed the gaps with certain areas of the business. Our used inventory management tool was great for used cars but lacked the features to help manage the new cars with. Our financial reporting application was helpful to analyze our financial statement but too complex to build and track a forecast with. The HR application helped us cover the legal aspects of hiring but lacked any functionally to help improve our sales teams training performance and tenure.
After a year of testing and development we built our application with solutions to help with the areas we felt that needed the most improvement. We are passionate about solving real problems and committed to delivering the level of dedication and support to make an impact.

Managing 2 stores with 7 brands has been a challenge using the DMS reports. I can now see all 7 brands inventory levels with one click and building a forecast for all the brands is so easy!
I thought this would only be beneficial for bigger stores, but we saw a 350% increase with one a model line we were struggling with by having it in our forecast and seeing the progress every day!
The screens are so easy to understand and help you focus on achieving your goal. Love the inventory reports, it has even helped me desk my deals more intelligently!
Having the Group View to manage all our stores with is simply amazing! We have much more productive meetings and everyone is on the same page. Best of all, I don’t have to build reports and email them to anyone!
