DMS vs EMS – What’s The Difference?
24th May 2014
DMS (Dealer Management System) is known throughout the motor trade industry as automotive software you would use to manage your business more efficiently.
Whether you are a large franchised dealership or a smaller independent garage offering anything from new and used car sales to MOTs, services and general car repairs – you probably have a DMS in place to help you.
DMS vs EMS…..
Most Dealer Management Systems can perform a whole range of tasks aimed specifically at the motor business but have you ever wondered if your DMS is also an EMS (Enquiry Management System)?
An EMS is used by dealers to help make the most of all their leads, offering consistency and making sure nothing is lost or overlooked due to human error. In this day and age, leads come from a variety of different sources.
Telephone and walk-ins remain the key channels for enquiries however in this ever increasing digital world, leads from website, email, QR code and SMS also need to be managed effectively to ensure your business stays ahead of the game.
