DealersLink overview

What is DealersLink?

The DealersLink marketplace module is a dealer-to-dealer marketplace that provides users with on-demand inventory and sell inventory with no wholesale transaction fees. The solution also offers live trading desk support to help users find the inventory items they require.

AuctionLink is a no fee online vehicle auction that is open to members of DealersLink and provides them with live bidding, reserved bidding and vehicle reporting features. The LiquidationLink module of the solution allows dealers to post aged vehicles below their wholesale book value price and reduce their inventory age time by getting rid of aged inventory.

The Dealership Tools module has scanning (Vehicle Barcode Scanner), inventory booking, inventory management, photo management and vendor consolidation features. The FastBook Pro 5.0 VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) scanner allows users to scan vehicle's VIN, set their retail prices, book vehicles and analyze competitor’s prices.

ExportPro is an inventory management solution from DealersLink that allows users to manage vehicle details such as specifications, pricing, and photos. It automatically creates description, marketing content such as stickers and guides, exports vehicle logs and integrates vehicle videos from YouTube and publishes them on internet. ExportPro is also available for Android and iOS devices.

The analytics module provides various reports such as retail market analytics, velocity reports, inventory health reports, inventory equity reports and stocking reports. This also has a retail pricing tool that analyses and posts a dealer's prices online within a dashboard.

I may have been one of the first dealers in the area to take on Marty and dealerslink when I was UCM for Dave Smith Motors. It helped me immensely to better manage my inventory as well as export to other platforms. It's been exciting to watch them grow over the years, add more features, more dealers, and bring all of these dealers together. Today, sourcing true front line quality inventory has never been more difficult and for those of us dealers who are using dealerslink, I think it's easy to say we would not want to lose the benefits it provides. Not sure how many hundreds of transactions the Gee Automotive Group completes through dealerslink today, but it's substantial and I really like the ease of digitally signing wholesale orders now. Keep up the good work and look forward to future innovations. Jason "Hunter" Hollibaugh, Gee Automotive Group

We have used dealerslink for some time now and I don't know how we would do what we do without it! I know when I did have problems with the App. Customer support representative was always helpful he can be hard to reach some times he is busy!!! You guys need to give him a vacation!! Lol! Anyways they have always found a fix!! And it works great keep up with the good work!

Pros
It's everything at the click of a button! Keeps us all connected with inventory that's hot and warnings when there are the right things we look for wether it's price or make and model it's nice to have more eyes out looking!

Cons
Would be nice when there are updates to have Marty come show us all the new goods and why it changed plus it's a good reason to get him out here!! Mostly for the ones less computer savvy. But we're kinda different then a dealership so no biggie!

New to the business and all the software. If the dealers put on a crappy photo that is what you see. Tend to skip those with crappy photos. Would like to see the dealer's name so we can trade.

I have been partnered up with Customer support representative n and the Dealerslink Team for approx. 3.5 years now. In that time we have experienced changes to the industry in Colorado such as mandatory placement of the dealerships Dealer Handling Fee into their displayed pricing. When this was instilled, none of the providers had software to handle that request. Dealerslink was fast and effective in making us one of the first dealerships in the state to be compliant with the new law. Whether you are talking about an issue with pictures, pricing, etc (which rarely happen) they are patient, knowledgeable, but most importantly fast to respond!

This is a great program to use. easy to upload pictures and check out inventory from other dealerships, going to auctions to see what vehicles are worth buying. It's a great tool to have in all of your stores to manage all of your inventory and making sure you are in the right price range as well.

Pros
How easy it is to upload and change pictures around

Cons
uploading pictures on an Ipad or IPhone, always have to use a computer in the office instead of being somewhere else to upload
