Dragon2000 launches innovative new mobile app: APPraise

Time 5 years ago

DRAGON2000, a leading provider of DMS solutions, has just launched a new, easy-to-use mobile app, APPraise.

It features innovative tools for carrying out vehicle appraisals, vehicle health checks (VHC) and making sales videos. Users can also add cars to stock from any location, all via a phone or tablet.

Available for both iOS and Android devices, APPraise is free to all DragonDMS customers. The new app enables dealers to carry out an in-depth appraisal of a vehicle, using both photos and notes, which is then stored within the DragonDMS system.

APPraise is ideal for appraising part-exchanges and cars bought for stock, as well as recording the condition of customers’ cars on collection and delivery. The appraisal is carried out in the app and, once completed, appears within the DragonDMS.

Users can open an existing appraisal record and attach it to a new estimate, booking, service or prospect record.  Alternatively, users can create an appraisal report for multiple uses.

The VHC tool within APPraise allows workshops to create and perform their own vehicle health checks, seamlessly integrating them into DragonDMS. The technician inspecting the vehicle can attach images and record video, which can be sent directly from the DragonDMS to the customer, to help them decide whether to have the work carried out, or defer it to a later date.

The sales video tool gives dealers the opportunity to speed up the sales process, before the customer has even walked into the showroom. Dealers can send a personalised video of a particular car the customer has enquired on, immediately.


Mark Kelland, commercial manager at Dragon2000, said: ‘We have designed APPraise with tools that are highly intuitive, making them simple to use. Feedback from dealers that have been trialling APPraise has been very positive.’

Dragon2000 has more than 20 years of experience, helping dealers grow their businesses. The firm’s software is used by more than 1,000 motor trade dealers and independent workshops, in the UK and overseas.
