There’s no question—dealers are becoming more reliant on software and technology to run and manage their businesses. Nearly all dealership processes and customer interactions are wrapped into systems like CRM, DMS, and various fixed operation tools that manage everything from scheduling to invoicing.
With this level of integration, it goes without saying that improvements in dealership operations may require changes in technology. While technology changes can be intimidating, they can also mean finding new tools that elevate dealership performance, or partnering with better providers who value customer relationships. The first step to positive change may be shifting your mindset from one of intimidation and fear, to one of excitement and opportunity.
During the course of this 60-minute presentation, we will discuss how your dealership can minimize the risks and maximize the opportunities associated with switching technology. We will cover the top five things you need to do before you consider a switch, and the steps to take to ensure that the transition is a success.
