Great Partnership
Reviewed by a BDC Manager Last Week
Recommended: YES
✅ Verified Rating

Pros: We have all been through the challenge of selecting the right product in a competitive CRM field. The old standby's are ever present. The sales person sells you on the bells and whistles and shows all the great things that can be done. The trainers then come in and when you need something specific to your dealership you are then told "oh, it can't do that." The trainers leave and you are left wading through the confusion with no clue how to use the system let alone getting the bells and whistles to work. This is a fairly new company and system with young blood and attitude.They have built a program that thinks the way managers and owners think so you can obtain the metrics and analytics you want with the ability to drill down to specific details. Training is done with pride to make sure the users actually know how to use the system to its fullest extent. The trainers and the support team are always available to answer questions and to customize to meet your needs. It is a partnership.

Cons: Limited in # of characters for the "pro" section, so I will continue with the positive. The program has been written to provide a breakdown of the details and specifics a manager needs to manage the team; analyzing the daily detailed tasks each member of the staff is performing which will enhance accountability leading to more sales. It is a system designed to foster accountability and productivity. If you need customization, the team is prepared to help you with knowledge and skill. There is a sense of urgency in meeting your needs, all done by a personalized team with a great attitude. This team is there after the sale of the system and there to improve the program with you. They are growing with the philosophy to never be too big that you lose the personal touch and connection with your customer. As for "cons" I have not seen many. The issues I have raised are being addressed. Some things may take a little longer than others but the approach is to find a short and long term fix.

Wow - thats all I can say. Thank you such much for the kind words. I promise - we will never stop pushing. If we ever fall down, please let me know. I know it will sound so cliche but we try to under promise and over deliver. This really made my day and I thank you for taking your time to provide feedback to our team. We do it because of you and we have such a passion for the automotive business. Again - thank you and please - if you need anything, please let use know.

User-Friendly Interface and differentiating CRM tools for staff

Pros: Drive Centric allows my sales consultants to get the most out of a CRM. Drive Centric has many capacities that benefit our staff such as the video implementation, text to consumers, daily workplan, and an overall simplistic interface for managing your pipeline of customers/prospects. Great support staff that is willing to come out to your store when needed for training or tweaking of rules to better suite your business model.

Cons:

Good features, still needs refining.

Pros: Overall, this is a pretty good CRM option. I have liked the interface, it has removed a lot of leg work from our daily processes.

Cons: The biggest issue we have is that the CRM requires us to be fairly proactive when it comes to managing emails and texts; most CRMs will send you notifications, we have to check to ensure we haven't missed anything. I also miss having a 'wish list' like VinSolutions had.

David Fultz

Thanks so much for the feedback. Is there anyway you can reach out to me in regards to the notifications. We do send you notifications for text and email. My email is david@drivecentric.com - you may not have notifications on. This should be a simple fix. In regards to 'Wish List" - this is in our planning to provide a robust option I know you will like. Just wanted you to know that it is in the works. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you!!

Pros: This is a good option for a CRM. It does what it needs to, but lacks some features that make other options nice.

Cons: This is not as user friendly as other CRMs. I also feel like many of the processes on it are pretty inefficient.

David Fultz

Thank you for your feedback. Always hard to hear when someone is not completely satisfied. I would love to better understand what features you need. We will build them - literally. Lets talk about user Friendly. If you have ideas on how a few tweaks can improve the use or processes, we will change it. My promise to you, we can make it work for you. Without knowing, I can never make it better. Email me as soon as you can and lets get started today. Again - thanks for the feedback and I'm excited to hear from you!!

Pros: I really appreciate this product I love the videos along with the pics after the sell that are posted to facebook and emailed to the customer Another thing I like is the access with the phone how I can do all my work outside of the office on my cell phone

Cons: I wish I could interact with other sales guys and managers through the system by a tagging method like facebook Also on trade appraisals if the notes would print on the trade appraisal form that would be great

Pros: This CRM is simply the best product on the market today. It's designed for car guys by car guys. You will see a 20% lift in sales after the first month. The service/tech help is the best in the business. This CRM is simply AMAZING!

Cons: I cannot think of a single thing I wanted changed that they did not change to suit my business.

David Fultz
