How Can DMS-Integrated Mobile Apps Benefit The Parts Department?

17th April 2024

Time-consuming methods in the parts department, such as using a pen and paper to record stock checks before heading over to a computer to manually enter the written details into a dealer management system, can be vastly improved, as garages and service centres look to streamline traditional processes and improve their efficiencies.

Mobile apps are now commonly used across the automotive industry to speed up tasks, and more and more garages are taking advantage of the ability to accurately input their data away from their desks or out in the workshop.

When your staff are able to create parts stock using a mobile app that is integrated with your dealer management system, it means new stock items can be added into your DMS as soon as they arrive on-site, which makes them instantly available to either be sold over the counter or issued to a service.

Significant time can also be saved when performing your stock checks from a mobile app as opposed to a manual paper method, and handwritten mistakes discovered after making your way through every shelf in the parts department are eliminated. Entering data digitally on a mobile device as you are physically at the parts location counting the stock, which updates your stock levels as you go along, increases the speed and accuracy of your stock check.

Your device’s camera should also be able to link to your mobile app so that you can quickly locate an item or stock location by simply scanning a barcode. This is a particularly useful timesaver if you have a large amount of stock on your shelves and require a much faster approach, while maintaining maximum accuracy.

Dragon2000’s Stocklister mobile app works with the DragonDMS dealer management system to speed up your parts department processes, making it easier for your team to check, create and receive items into stock, with all of the above features included.

Additionally, if your garage has an ecommerce store and your website is powered by Dragon2000, your online stock levels will be updated as soon as you’ve entered data into the Stocklister mobile app, thanks to the real-time DragonDMS integration.
