About ERA-IGNITE

ERA-IGNITE is a dealership management system (DMS) designed to help automotive dealers manage accounting, sales, inventory tracking, maintenance of parts, and other operations via a unified portal. The platform enables organizations to handle role-based permissions, allowing authorized users to reverse or adjust transactions.

ERA-IGNITE lets users generate financial reports and capture and store customer details in a centralized repository. The application allows employees to search transactions by invoice number, vendor name, posting status, and other attributes. Accounting teams can also rectify posting errors in invoices, track the productivity of employees, and monitor transactions’ status.

ERA-IGNITE also supports integration with numerous third-party applications like TRONIX, Dealer Uplift, ASR Pro, and more.

Reynolds and Reynolds has opened up the next generation of management software for business small or large.

Pros

This incredible software is user friendly for any level employee. It practically walks you through the process of any departments record saving so much time rather than through different screens it's all built in.

Cons

There is nothing I can say that I didn't absolutely love about Era- Ignite.
This software is exceptional and so far advanced.

Response from Reynolds and Reynolds

Pros

I love Reynolds and Reynolds. You can keep all your leads and prospect in the system for follow ups. We use era ignite for the service part of the dealership. Great for service advisors to put in their ROs and what work has been done on the vehicle.

Cons

The blue screen is a little tough to learn and the software is Expensive and if you go over the amount of licensed users you have to pay more.

Response from Reynolds and Reynolds

Not well thought out

Reviewed on 2018/11/26

Pros

The Windows UI is nice improvement over the old blue screen of ERALink/Access. Navigation can be a bit troublesome sometimes but the help function usually can guide you to where you need to be.
I've been told by some of my users they like it and it has streamlined their daily work. But I've also heard from an equal amount of users who's daily routine has been negatively impacted by the change. Mainly by adding more clicks/steps to their processes.

Cons

The fact that we are being forced to change to this product, when they still have so many bugs to work out of it is very frustrating. Reynolds continues to make changes on how things like reports print, but never seem to give any thought to how that will impact users. They would greatly benefit from having their programmer leads visit a cross section of dealers to see the daily usage of the product to better understand how to improve it. As it is now, it is a bunch of programmers doing what they THINK a dealership would do, rather than what actually happens. This has driven my multi-point group to looking at their competition and could very well lead us to change providers. Even long time users/admins of ERA in our group (25+ year users) are cursing the changes without thought that Reynolds has done in Ignite.

ERA-IGNITE is worth it once you're trained!

Reviewed on 2021/04/28

Pros

The features are endless once you're fully trained on ERA-IGNITE. Reporting is great and it integrates well with many other solutions, especially Reynolds & Reynolds solutions.

Cons

The learning curve from ERA to ERA-IGNITE is steep, as is any transition from a DOS system to Windows-based. It's clear that ERA-IGNITE is core software for Reynolds and Reynolds so there is no slowing down this change. The best you can do is adopt early and take training seriously so you don't get behind on your daily tasks.

Response from Reynolds and Reynolds

Kevin, we couldn't agree more about the importance of training! Like you said, ERA-IGNITE has so many great features that make life easier. With our 'Net Classes and free webinars, and our award-winning support team, we're here to help customers unlock all the benefits ERA-IGNITE has to offer.
