VinSolutions is looking to help dealers cut cost and is showcasing their do it yourself inventory management software and hardware at the 5th Digital Dealer Conference. According to VinSolutions the do it yourself segment is growing and their products will help dealers cut expenses and increase ROI. Here is the full release Grapevine, Texas, October 7, 2008 – VinSolutions, a leading Web-based automotive software provider, is showcasing their Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and Inventory Management module at the 5th Digital Dealer Conference and Exposition in Grapevine, Texas. Running from October 6th through 8th, dealers can meet VinSolutions’ upper management, salesmen and trainers for one-on-one demonstrations of the VinCamera, VinBuddy, CRM, ILM, Inventory Management and Web site design products. “The thing I like best about coming to this conference is the chance it gives us to actually show dealers in person how great our products are,” said Mike Dullea, VinSolutions’ CSO. “Since our software was designed by people who were in the car business for years, we know our products meet the needs of real people working real car deals.” The DIY market segment is growing. Upgrades in technology have made do-it-yourself activities easier, and as dealers look for ways to cut back on expenditures, taking their own inventory photos makes a lot of sense. VinSolutions has stepped up their efforts to provide dealers with a turn-key DIY product. The VinCamera offers dealers a way to match vehicle stock numbers from their DMS directly with photos they shoot on their lot. Simply plug the camera into the dealership’s computer system and the photos upload automatically in the Inventory Management module. Right now dealers need to use every advantage they can to cut cost, maximize efficiencies, and convert leads to sales. Selecting and using the right CRM, ILM and Web site design allow dealers to do just that. The down turn in auto sales brought on by the softening of the nation’s economy has many dealers battening down the hatches in an effort to ride out the tough times ahead. Running an efficient operation is key to survival. “Even though the nation’s economy is soft right now, we’ve just come off of the best third quarter in our company’s history,” said Doug Kinney, VinSolutions’ CEO. “We owe that success to the results our clients get from using our fully-integrated products. Efficiency equals savings.” Using VinSolutions’ suite of products, dealers can handle everything from taking pictures of their inventory to pushing a deal to finance without ever having to sign a long-term contract or chase down contacts from multiple companies to handle their needs. One contact, one company, one commitment. It doesn’t get much more efficient than that. About VinSolutions (www.vinsoltuions.com): An industry-leading developer of Internet-based customer relations management (CRM) and Internet lead management (ILM) software, VinSolutions provides 24/7 dealership sales and marketing information to their clients anywhere Internet access is available.
