4 Ways to Rev Up Powersports Business with Dealer Management Software
Those who deal in the powersports retail industry know how much their clients love engines that can work at full throttle, so shouldn’t your dealer management software (DMS) work the same way?
The powersports dealership business is all about powerful machinery. Your sales consist of those four-season toys that grown ups love to play on, whether it’s riding the wind on a motorcycle, revving up a sweet line on a snowmobile, hitting the dirt on an ATV (all-terrain vehicle) or leaving others in your wake on a PWC (personal water craft),
Customers who invest in expensive powersports want the best service possible, so you need retail software that can offer a broad set of applications – from customer relationship management (CRM) software to store inventory software.
All your stock and parts also need to be accounted for, so your sales staff can help customers get out to play on the latest piece of equipment as quickly as possible.
With advanced dealer management software, you can do this and more:
1. Start your engines
Add new clients with the touch of a screen or the click of a mouse. Dealer management software with CRM allows you to input new customers information instantly, generate invoices, and put them on your mailing list or database. You can edit their information just as easily. This easy access to your clients’ information is most helpful when it comes to sending warranty information to the manufacturer.
2. Add to your horsepower
An integrated dealer management system allows you to take advantage of the most current technologies such as:
- Wireless hand-held scanning
- Full Internet capabilities
- Bar coding
- Serial number tracking
3. Shift gears
If you are a powersports dealership with more than one retail outlet, you need dealer management software that will share information with all your stores. If you operate out of a main office, you can receive management reports from all your retail locations, plus receive a joint report on your entire operations, including daily balance reports, sales, and inventory management without having to run all over town.
4. Check your brakes
From models and makes to exhaust pipes and handlebars, it can be hard to locate every piece of equipment your customer needs. With inventory control software as part of your integrated software package, you can find your parts easily, track your inventory movement, print detailed reports, and make orders all the way from the showroom to the backroom.
