Running a successful dealership requires more than just a good location, a lot full of great vehicles, and helpful staff. These days, success is reserved for those that also utilize a car dealer management system. They have become particularly important for the F&I aspect of running a dealership.
Choose Your Car Dealer Management System from These 3 Options
While there have never been more options to choose from, that doesn’t mean they’re all equal. Considering how much you’ll come to rely on your car dealer management system, it’s worth focusing on the following three platforms, which are largely considered to be the best on the market.
At The Ace Group, our personal favorite F&I Menu Platform is Darwin. It’s actually the platform we give to dealerships that partner with us.
While many dealership management systems are designed to help address the common challenges associated with F&I, Darwin was specifically designed with them in mind. As a result, we’ve found that our dealership-partners are able to reverse the trend of growing margin compressions at their location by selling an increased number of F&I products.
One of the many reasons for this is that Darwin is extremely user-friendly. This makes it easy for dealership staff and even their customers to use this platform to find the best possible F&I products.
Another very powerful platform you can use to lock in more F&I sales is StoneEagle. For one thing, it is also very user-friendly, with a sleek and intuitive interface that makes it accessible to anyone. So, you can rely on Stone Eagle to make your F&I presentation streamlined and, most importantly, successful.
The other great thing about StoneEagle is the reporting it will bring to your dealership. Being able to monitor the performance of your F&I sales in real-time is the most important step toward catching minor problems before they become much bigger (and costlier).
StoneEagle has been in business since 1987, and it shows. While their technology is cutting-edge, it’s not surprising that their customer service team has more than 30 years of experience.
Finally, there’s MaximTrak, which we love for its customer-centric approach. This platform is virtually guaranteed to shave time off your current F&I presentation, making it much easier to increase sales – quickly. That includes being able to work on desktops, tablets, table-tops, touch TVs, and other forms of technology. So, whatever devices you’re currently using – or whichever you’d like to begin implementing – MaximTrak is ready to help.
You can even private label your MaximTrak interface for a brand-consistent presentation that is in line with your dealership’s branding and physical presence.
