A Dealer Management System (DMS) offers the integration of your parts & accessories, prices files, labor tracking, RO scheduling, customer communication and accounting interface all in one integrated, easy-to-use platform.  Everything you need to successfully run the many moving parts of a service department will all be available in a well-designed DMS. When a repair order is placed, a series of logical and seamless events should follow in your shop beginning with customer history and the equipment they own, repair history, special order management, flat rate and technician tracking, all the way up to updating accounting records. From the moment a boat, motorcycle or RV enters your business until the you collect payment, all operations should be tracked and recorded in one integrated system. This streamlined process saves time, money and headaches by eliminating the wastefulness of disconnected systems and missed or redundant communication. 

A DMS not only improves the day-to-day operations for a dealership, but also is equipped to boost the efficiency of service departments, boat yards and repair shops. There are many benefits that service-related businesses can anticipate from investing in a Dealer Management System.
