Unique Features

Car Research Auto Dealership Software includes unique features such as text message notification of key metrics (which allow users to send texts to one or one hundred sales or service representatives for immediate information sharing across the entire sales and service spectrum) and integrated call management solutions (which make call management problems become a thing of the past with solutions that allow automated follow-up calls and computer-to-telephone integration).
