Vehicle management: The heart of revenue growth for car dealers & dealerships

Vehicle management in the car dealership of the 21st century is a challenge for many car dealers. Between the sharing economy and online platforms, the traditional car dealership is faced with the task of redefining its role within the car trade and using existing resources as effectively as possible.

Vehicle management is a decisive factor in this complex situation. Whether cars or trucks, new or used vehicles - as a car dealer, you know that the time from purchase to sale of a vehicle is a key criterion for optimizing your sales and increasing your profits. 

After all, the shorter the downtime, the higher the turnover. In this context, digital solutions offer the opportunity to 

  • optimized processes,
  • fast response times to customer inquiries,
  • Precise sales management and vehicle marketing 

accelerate the sales cycle and effectively reduce downtime.

When looking for an optimal solution for your car management, however, the question arises: What requirements must such software fulfill in order to be really worthwhile for car dealerships and dealers?

Advanced features for efficient car management

The task of car dealership software is not only to ensure efficient car management, but also to react dynamically to changes and new requirements in the industry. Modern vehicle management software should therefore cover more than just the basic functions of classic administration. 

Innovative features are important to accelerate the sales cycle and reduce the downtime of your vehicles. 

The AUTOMANAGER sets new standards and stands out with its simple integration, innovative technologies and future-oriented functionalities. The software not only increases the efficiency of a dealership's vehicle management, but also makes a decisive contribution to optimizing sales.

Advantages of digital vehicle management in the dealership

In an era in which the digital customer and the requirements of online platforms are redefining the rules of the game in the car trade, the digitalization of vehicle management is not only a means of coping with the current transformation, but also a source of tangible, measurable benefits:

  • Effective coordination in complex vehicle management

Many contacts and service providers are involved in vehicle management, from vehicle receipt to the offer in the local and digital showroom. There are many process steps such as cleaning, repair and painting that take place between the receipt of a vehicle and its presentation.

So far, so good, but do you have an exact overview of how much time passes unused between the individual operations that could possibly contribute to shortening the service life of a car?

With AUTOMANAGER , you can individually define the entire process from the purchase to the sale of a vehicle. You can define responsibilities and time specifications and keep an eye on the vehicle's location. This enables you to identify weak points and time losses, optimize vehicle management and increase your earnings.

  • Efficient control between car dealership & online platform

Vehicle management at the dealership is already a time-consuming process. However, it becomes even more complex when cars and trucks are to be presented not only in the physical showroom, but also digitally for online-savvy customers.
