Seeking Automotive CRM or DMS Systems

02-16-2010, 09:40 PM
Hi all, I am new to this forum, and not sure if this is the best category for my post. I am searching for a good stable, but above all affordable automotive CRM or DMS system for my used car dealership. I have been researching and came up with few big names such as ADP, Vin Solution, Dealer Socket, but they all require a large amount of setup fee, and monthly subscription fees range from 2000 - 5000. Above all the software are mostly web based, they are not an actual desktop application. I also came across a company called Dealer Elite CRM, they seem to be the desktop solution with no setup fees. Monthly cost is alot less, too small as matter of fact that I am afraid they may not meet my requirements. So my question is does anyone has a dealership that is currently running on Dealer Elite CRM? If so what is your opinion on their product. Thank you, and you can reach me by email.

Every dealership i've worked at has used Reynolds & Reynolds.

Thanks Rahx, but Reynolds and Reynolds is exactly what I was afraid of not to mention the cost per month, and the fact it was poorly developed over 20 years ago.

LOL it is pretty archaic looking. I just figured it was a decent system if every place I've worked at/been to used it. Must be a necessary evil that is totally utilitarian.
