DealerCenter

Dealer management software for independent auto dealerships

About DealerCenter

DealerCenter is a cloud-based, centralized dealer management system designed to support the day-to-day operations of independent automobile dealerships - including both new and used car lots. Supported by mobile integration with native DealerCenter and DealerCenter mobile apps for iOS and Android platforms, staff can oversee car sales remotely from the forecourt or auction house. Key features include inventory management for recording and reviewing vehicle stocks, running reports and managing costs while querying car histories via AutoCheck, NMVTIS and Carfax integrations. The AutoStructure feature supports desking actions with automated loan calculations and deal structuring, leveraging dual-channel lender management tools and contract / documents management to centralize sales paperwork.

Accounting support is provided through direct QuickBooks integration that eliminates duplicate data entries and offers RFC management for Buy-Here-Pay-Here (BHPH), alongside scheduled reporting options. Coupled credit bureau services give access to consumer credit checks while promising compliance around every transaction, with fraud protection and authentication measures built in. Additional DealerCenter features span website promotion and marketing functions, inviting the customization of professionally-styled dealer websites from templates and the online posting of adverts listing inventory vehicles to third-party channels such as AutoTrader, eBay Motors, TRUECar and Craigslist.

    Bad Product!! Will Devastate your business!!

    Used this for years, Was Great! They changed it at the end of 2015. Now it is down all the time! And not user friendly at all! I use the full DMS. My business is shut down for the third day this week, because their system is down!!, I have lost tens of thousands of dollars in the last year. They never apologize, and have never given a credit for all the days Deal Center has shut down my dealership.
    If you use Deal Center, you definitely need a backup system, like Reves, or Fraisier.
    Or just go with them in the first place, and save a lot of money, headaches, and lost profit.

    Cons

    System down all the time,
    cant print reports, without downloading to excel
    No customer service
    No one ever returns your calls, unless weeks later

    We like the software and believe it definitely helps get deals done. We love to use it for running credit reports. Very easy program to learn to use.

    Pros

    We like the ease of use. Fair pricing for running credit reports. Saves all the data you would need to work on other approvals.

    Cons

    Wish there were more lenders using the software, but they are added.

    DealerCenter has excellent customer service reps that are always there to answer our question whether it be by phone or live chat. If they don't know something, they'll always find a way to get the answers we need.

    Pros

    Payment processing is now so EASY to do! Integration is free so it was a no brainer deciding to go with it. Best training ever by [SENSITIVE CONTENT]

    Cons

    Integration is fairly new for us so there's really nothing that we don't like but if I find something, I'll be sure to update this review!
