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.

    Anyone can set up a auto dealership and have it operational and effective in a week.

    Pros

    Ease of use, and with out a doubt when it doubts call the customer rep. I have been Consulting for the Sports Car Group and suffered major set back with what I wanted to be the heart of the operation, a full spectrum lender, and as I was just at my point of turning negative which is a but rare for ME. Sunshine came through in the form of the rep who didn't allow to me harp but do what I knew to do and that looked past to see what was still there. She found me 5 sub prime and 4 prime options to offset my loss. I am grateful for her, she may never know how much that small act of kindness resignated with me.

    Cons

    The Customer experience isn't shared accross all Westlakes Products and Services. I wish preferred lender didn't auto submit.

    I would like to say I’m very impressed with the continual updates and improvements The Team at Dealer Center continues to make, regularly. It’s like owning an Apple computer and getting updates every 45 to 60 days.
    In an industry that’s notorious for creating software and promising to make improvements ONE DAY... Dealer Center is a breath of fresh air.
    A tech company creating Automotive Software solutions. The updates and improvements are continual. Their motto is certainly to be the best, which means we must get better every day. Never static, never stuck, never the same old same old... I’m a believer.

    Pros

    Easy to use, intuitive in fact. Everything you need and more. Cannot beat the value.

    Integrated system

    Reviewed on 30/9/2021

    Pros

    There are many banks that are integrated with this system, which helps us contract more deals. This helps us with leads as we can keep all of the customer's information in one place.

    Cons

    Sometimes the system delays which causes an issue with contracting deals but other than that it's an easy system to use.

    All in all for the price it seems like a fair value. There are certainly more sophisticated and better systems out there. After its all said and done I wish I would have spent the money to get a better quality system. The bare bones of the system is Ok but to get all the nice features there is upcharge after up charge.

    Pros

    It was turn key and it was up and running was not much down time.

    Cons

    Its really slow, and clunky, When there is an issue often times its not a quick solution.

    Reasons for Switching to DealerCenter

    There was another dealer we work closely with who was already signed up with DC. To keep things simple and be able to share data quickly we went with the same system.
