The integration is part of Dominion’s efforts to optimize workflow and minimize data entry time.
Norfolk, Va. – October 22, 2018 – Dominion Dealer Solutions today announced that the Dominion Dealer Specialties Inventory Manager and Dominion Vision CRM, powered by CRMSuite, have officially integrated. The company reported today that users of the two platforms can begin searching for and stocking in-demand vehicles as early as today.
Dominion Dealer Specialties Inventory Manager allows dealers to appraise vehicles in advance of purchasing them at auction, provides market-based pricing insights and identifies in-demand vehicles. The software also provides extensive merchandising. Dealers can customize vehicle descriptions and distribute vehicle data to over 1,600 Internet partners, including all of the major portals, classified advertising sites, websites and more. The partners who receive the highest level of Inventory Manager data include NADA, AutoTrader, Amazon, CARFAX, CarGurus, Cars.com, TrueCar and Facebook.
“These integrations simplify dealership processes. Dealers and their managers can now utilize the more centralized data that exists in their CRM without having to spend time accessing multiple systems to value trades,” said Shane Marcum, vice president of inventory services & solutions at Dominion Dealer Specialties.
The integration offers a complete appraisal lifecycle between Dominion Vision CRM and Inventory Manager, improves customer experience by reducing appraisal process time and wins more trades and land more deals.
As of today, Dominion Vision CRM users can start a trade-in, and with the click of a button, begin the appraisal process in Inventory Manager. Vehicle, customer, and salesperson information being held in Dominion Vision CRM is then pushed over to Inventory Manager. From there, Inventory Manager uses that data to create a new appraisal for an “in-progress” state; and, Inventory Manager users will receive Dominion Vision CRM appraisal alerts.
Dominion Vision CRM has over 17,000 users with approximately 100 being added weekly, the company reported last month.
Dominion Inventory Manager currently powers 3,500 dealerships. Dominion Vision is the first CRM with which Inventory Manager integrates, however, the company has plans to integrate with more CRM companies in the coming months.
