Dealer Drive Appraisals is here!

This has been the biggest addition to the Dealer Drive software since our initial launch. Over the past year or so we’ve had some productive and valuable conversations with dealerships around Australia in how we can help improve our offering. A common topic that kept coming up was along the lines of “we really need to streamline our appraisal process for our staff and cut down paperwork and time”.

To be honest, we’d already been thinking about the possibility of a vehicle appraisals add-on to the current Dealer Drive app. But talking to our customers only confirmed that we really needed to ‘go big’ on this. And we’re wrapped with the results so far.

So now, after months of design, development and testing, Appraisals is here. It’s a whole new app that can be seamlessly integrated into your current Dealer Drive system, or used as a stand-alone product for those new to Dealer Drive.

We’ve added too many features and functions to be listed here, so visit our Appraisals page to check them out and even register your interest. Dealer Drive is also offering a great introductory offer and free demo to those who are ready to streamline their vehicle appraisals process.

Vehicle appraisals have never been this easy!

"Dealer drive is such a simple app that has a huge impact on the daily running of our group.  A few key benefits are;
No more looking for paper work, Business Managers/All staff can easily look up drivers licences and contact details within seconds. I personally look after all infringements for the The Bruce Lynton Group and without Dealer Drive it could take me weeks to find a nominated driver; now its a matter of just 30 seconds! We have all our sites/dealerships linked so I can easily view our group, stock is automatically uploaded 3 times a day via our DMS to keep accurate, and there are plenty of automated reports available that allow our Managers to monitor each department on the go. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Dealer Drive to any dealership or group."

“Dealer Drive has significantly helped our business. We have been using Dealer Drive since October 2013 and are operating more efficiently and have seen substantial time and cost savings as a direct result of using Dealer Drive. For such a simple app, the features and benefits are endless. The reporting is quick and timely and more importantly, it’s relevant. Using Dealer Drive has made all of our sales staff more accountable by taking the guesswork out of tracking vehicles and sales staff performance. I highly recommend Dealer Drive to any automotive brand or dealership.”

“Andrews and Wallis Group have been using Dealer Drive since July 2014. The group implemented Dealer Drive over 4 dealerships both in Sales and Service and covers all; Loan cars, Demonstrators, Test-Drives and Staff drive cars.

The Dealer Drive system is a fantastic efficient tool to manage a paperless system with simple interfaces that all staff can use easily. We have saved time and cost with no paper use or insecure storage of customer licenses.

We would have trouble going back to a loan book and photocopies in a folder now. Additionally the CRM side of Dealer Drive is fantastic in marketing to those customers who have taken a demo or loan gaining further sales opportunities. I would recommend Dealer Drive to any business loaning or driving cars on a daily basis.”
