"I wish you luck and applaude you for getting into the DMS business. You are well respected in the automotive industry and it it is about time that someone who truly understands dealer's pains, wants, and needs develops a product that is affordable and can work for a small dealer to a mega dealer. I wish you success!"Ken Mannell, a former Dealership Manager/Executive from Boston, Account Manager for R+R
DealerStar History There are a lot of DMS providers out on the market, but we didn't see many in the tier 2 market (fully integrated systems) that had multi-store functionality, reporting, and an interface to Excel. We had hoped that the new Microsoft Dynamics-based system might be the answer and then we could be consultants and developers of products for that; but were disappointed when we added up the license costs for the underlying products it needs and the slow performance on the web. We wanted to reduce the IT expense for dealers and the best way to do this was to develop on a database/platform that is fast and inexpensive to maintain and installs on both Windows and Linux servers; hosted or on a client's server. In addition, we saw problems with the current "go live" conversions. A typical computer conversion means that the installers are so busy putting our fires, that employees don't get the training they need. Instead of trying to convert a dealer completely to a new DMS system (which is often stressful to the employees,) we decided to do it in steps. A typical DealerStar employee can be using it for months or years before the "go live" date; looking up an old check or repair order, sending out thank you letters, entering service appointments for customers, or even using the service invoicing for a Quick Lube shop - and then when they "convert" to DealerStar it isn't a big learning curve. We launched DealerStar a few years ago, but after installing DealerStar at various beta sites, we took the input from our dealers and made it bigger and better; along with much easier and faster. It is a whole redesign. We now have dealers using and testing our DMS, CRM, Tasks, or Data Warehousing product. Why such a slow start and not thousands? Because I've spent the last 15 years helping dealers buy DMS systems and been rather critical of those other systems. Before I can bring my DMS "wide" to market - it has to be the best! Now as the icing on the cake, we're adding manufacturer integration for our clients - but only those manufacturers that use Star Standards. GM, VW, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAMandKIA are our current projects. We also specialize in dealerships that have lost their franchise and need a full-featured DMS but at much lower price than the Tier 1 or 2 providers. Lately we have added new features for the bus, RV, and truck market like maintaining a remote inventory in a service truck or van.
"A DMS system from Sandi is huge - she just tells dealers which system to buy and they buy it", former ADP sales representive with 15 years DMS experience.
The demo is very nice. I think it shows professionalism and that DealerStar will fill the needs of many dealers. I'm very excited for the launch/pilot opportunity. DealerStar will sell like red ropes at the Super Bowl! Director of Service and Business Development at a Honda Dealership
DealerStar appeared to be very user friendly. Plus, with your background and knowledge of the industry, I’m sure it will be a huge success. The one thing that I think was favorable to the group was the cost. Greta-Ann Jars - Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia
