Vehicle management - a software solution for 3 common problems

Vehicle management in the car dealership of the 21st century presents many traditional car dealers with numerous challenges. Between sharing economy, diesel scandal 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.

A decisive factor within this mixture is the vehicle management. Whether passenger car or truck, new or used car, as every knowledgeable car dealer knows, the time period from the purchase to the sale of a vehicle is an essential criterion for optimizing your sales and increasing your profits. After all, the shorter the service life, the higher the turnover.

Learn more about three major challenges in the car trade and how you can optimize your vehicle management with the help of software.

Problem no. 1 - The digital customer and his requirements

Vehicle management and customer demands - at first glance, these two areas do not seem to have much in common, but in the car dealership of the 21st century, different rules of the game are increasingly being applied than in classic analogue vehicle sales.

The modern customer is well networked and although a visit to the dealership is still important for over half of all buyers, just as many people are interested in buying their new car via an online platform, as a study by PwC found out.

The solution? Proactively meet demanding customers with streamlined vehicle management! With vehicle management software, such as. AUTOMANAGER, you can keep an eye on both your vehicle inventory and lead management , and match the right customer with the right vehicle in record time - online and offline!

Problem no. 2 - Between car dealership and online platform

Vehicle administration in the dealership alone is already a time-consuming process in the day-to-day business of a car dealership. However, if cars and trucks no longer only want to be presented digitally on the premises and in the showroom, but also for customers with an online affinity, online business quickly becomes a necessary but undesirable time and cost trap.

Around three-quarters of the car dealers surveyed by PwC see digital car sales platforms as serious competition for their business, which impressively emphasises the importance of efficient vehicle management, including online.

The solution? Manage your online vehicle management with software that helps you set up your digital car dealership. Via AUTOMANAGER MARKETPLACE , for example, you can create a website in responsive design in no time at all, even without IT skills, and present your cars in the perfect light using a photo app.

Problem No 3 - Many parties involved in vehicle management

As you know for sure, vehicle management is a complex area in which a wide variety of contact persons and service providers are involved. From the moment you receive a vehicle to the offer in your local and digital showroom, there are often a number of process steps involved, such as cleaning, repairing or painting a new car or truck.

So far so good, but do you have an exact overview of how much time goes by unused between each operation, which could possibly contribute to shortening the life of a car?

The solution? With a vehicle management software, such as AUTOMANAGER, you have the possibility to individually define the entire process from the purchase to the sale of a vehicle, as well as to define responsibilities and time specifications. By always having the location of the car in view, you have the possibility to identify weak points and time wasters, to optimize the vehicle management and to increase your profits.
