For those of you who might question whether or not I'm independent after designing DealerStar - I'm not, but I do know these systems and I haven't met another consultant that has spent the time that I have consulting with dealers on these systems. In one month alone, I was on an AutoSoft system helping them use the dispatching and flagging system, then over to an ACS system to help them download to Excel, and finishing up with an office manager during their Arkona/DealerTrack DMS installation. I recently wrote Expense Master for Auto/Mate. I am proud to say that I am probably the only consultant that has taken payments for almost ALL of the DMS providers over the years. Yes, I've consulted with almost each one; product consulting, data extraction or sales training. I like all these systems and they do the job, so the challenge will be for you to read this guide, see the systems, and pick the one best for you! Buy now and it will be emailed to you !
