DEALERS have sold two million cars, completed six million services and charged for 13.3 million service labour hours since Dragon2000’s DragonDMS software was launched, the company has revealed.
It said it had recorded significant growth in new customers over the past 12 months, and now had more than 1,000 dealers, car supermarkets and garages across the UK using its dealer management system-integrated software for all aspects of car dealer and garage businesses.
Commercial manager Mark Kelland, pictured, said: ‘We are delighted with our growth and success, and it is testament to the passion and dedication of our staff who develop and support our software and websites. Over the 12 months, we have experienced a surge in dealer website and DMS inquiries.
‘We have been providing DragonDMS to dealers, car supermarkets and workshops over the past 23 years and a number of our customers have been with us for over two decades. We continually listen to our customers and shape our products and services to meet their needs in a changing market.
‘Increasingly, dealers are getting bogged down with maintaining many separate systems and rekeying data, so we are seeing an increase in demand for our bespoke websites, which integrate fully with our dealer management system.
‘Integrations are key, and by using the DragonDMS software dealers can also benefit from integrations which allow them to manage advertising leads and stock feeds to online advertisers, card payments and their accounting all from one place.
‘It’s a huge time-saver and eliminates a lot of errors associated with retyping or copying data from one system to another.’
