10 Most Promising Automotive DMS Service Providers - 2014
Auto manufacturers and OEM’s are increasingly depending on dealership systems to customize manufacturing according to the preferences of customers today. This customer centric approach is resulting in many dealers upgrading their legacy systems to cloud and mobile platforms to engage customers and build data for future references. Successfully managing and growing dealership in a consumer driven marketplace requires more than just software. Many solution providers who understand the pain points of dealerships have customized their solutions to fully automate and support dealers throughout the country.
While some dealers use cloud as a platform to address these concerns, others feel mobile is the next big thing that will disrupt the automotive aftermarket eco-system. Automation of many of the man-powered systems is also enabling dealers to concentrate more on the operations than diverting valuable time into people management. Solution providers are also exploiting SaaS and PaaS models to help dealers improve their CRM and payroll activites.
