Dealer management software for independent auto dealerships

About DealerCenter

DealerCenter is a cloud-based, centralized dealer management system designed to support the day-to-day operations of independent automobile dealerships - including both new and used car lots. Supported by mobile integration with native DealerCenter and DealerCenter mobile apps for iOS and Android platforms, staff can oversee car sales remotely from the forecourt or auction house. Key features include inventory management for recording and reviewing vehicle stocks, running reports and managing costs while querying car histories via AutoCheck, NMVTIS and Carfax integrations. The AutoStructure feature supports desking actions with automated loan calculations and deal structuring, leveraging dual-channel lender management tools and contract / documents management to centralize sales paperwork.

Accounting support is provided through direct QuickBooks integration that eliminates duplicate data entries and offers RFC management for Buy-Here-Pay-Here (BHPH), alongside scheduled reporting options. Coupled credit bureau services give access to consumer credit checks while promising compliance around every transaction, with fraud protection and authentication measures built in. Additional DealerCenter features span website promotion and marketing functions, inviting the customization of professionally-styled dealer websites from templates and the online posting of adverts listing inventory vehicles to third-party channels such as AutoTrader, eBay Motors, TRUECar and Craigslist.

    The best DMS for the small used car delaership

    Makes my every day work so much easier!

    Makes my every day work so much easier!

    Pros

    The company is so far ahead of the curve when it comes to bringing anything a dealer could want from a DMS. From our website to inventory. I have been with Dealer Center for over 6 years and I don't keep using them because their bad!

    Cons

    some times, there technology gets ahead of their support. But, they are always willing to get the answer and fix it

    Bad Product!! Will Devastate your business!!

    Reviewed on 2017/01/21

    Used this for years, Was Great! They changed it at the end of 2015. Now it is down all the time!...

    Used this for years, Was Great! They changed it at the end of 2015. Now it is down all the time! And not user friendly at all! I use the full DMS. My business is shut down for the third day this week, because their system is down!!, I have lost tens of thousands of dollars in the last year. They never apologize, and have never given a credit for all the days Deal Center has shut down my dealership.
    If you use Deal Center, you definitely need a backup system, like Reves, or Fraisier.
    Or just go with them in the first place, and save a lot of money, headaches, and lost profit.

    Cons

    System down all the time,
    cant print reports, without downloading to excel
    No customer service
    No one ever returns your calls, unless weeks later
