What is a BDC?

Jim Chamberlain
What is a BDC? Just about everyone I talk to in the business says they have a BDC. When I ask them what their BDC does, I get everything from, two ladies that answer phones for the Service department in the afternoons, to a phone room that pounds customers with razzle dazzle specials for sales and service. Some have a phone room that answers inbound calls for the sales department and many call the room the internet department works in a BDC. We have a BDC at our dealership. I have my own definition of what it should be. I’m curious to know what everyone else thinks a BDC should do in a dealership. Why do we need a BDC? Do we need a BDC?

Our main function in sales is to take sales calls and make sure that no one falls through th cracks(fresh ups, internet and phone leads )

wow this is a 7 year old thread with 55,000 views! I think that does demonstrate that we are still as an industry not fully bought into the concept of a BDC when they are clearly the present and future.
