Likelihood to Recommend

The only situation within the automotive field in which I would not recommend using this product is if your employees are already comfortable with another, similarly priced DMS, such as DealerTrack or AutoMate. In that type of situation, the positive impact of the DMS would likely be outweighed by the cost and effort of retraining an entire staff to use it.

For a mid-sized company, it is a decent choice. Other ERP vendors will give you a better employee self-service portal. I'm assuming Lawson's price point is lower than those, however.

Pros

CDK Drive

  • Cloud-based, uses far less resources to run on each individual computer, minimizing the costs of upgrading hardware for every employee.
  • The fact that it is able to be used remotely adds a great deal of functionality, as there are times when usage outside of normal business hours is needed in my position.
Mark DiNallo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Infor M3

  • Web-based and rarely crashes.
  • Capable of producing a lot of different report styles.
  • Facilitates information sharing across different departments.

Cons

CDK Drive

  • Possibly because of the web-based nature, there are times when it can be slightly slow and laggy.
  • Some functions are less intuitive to use than Reynolds and Reynolds but that is more of a personal preference.

Infor M3

  • Reporting capabilities with mobility options.
  • Flexibility to multiple hierarchical reporting.

It meets most of the reporting requirements and ability to use the system easily. We like the simple interfaces for the users and ability to perform mass journal entry uploads. The Master data is easy to consume by users, including Chart of Accounts structure, Accounting Units, Cost Centers. The Activity based reporting feature is useful.

Great job by everyone from the initial sales staff to the implementation team to the support staff. Always ready, willing and able to help out with any questions or issues that arise, even those from people who are simply not computer savvy and have had a hard time transitioning to a new product for everyday use.

The support is satisfactory, given the large user base of the product. We had no issues to meet our reporting deadlines with Lawson. The organizational support team internally are well trained and hence only on exceptional basis issues are escalated to Lawson support team. We had no negative experience so far with the support of Lawson.

Alternatives Considered

CDK Drive

CDK presents a much stronger, full integration of needed services than I found with AutoMate in particular, slightly better than Dealertrack, without the enormous additional cost incurred by using ERA-IGNITE. I have used nearly every DMS on the market and while I am still most comfortable with Reynolds, the thousands of dollars per month extra simply can no longer be justified for a product that lags behind in areas like reporting and cashiering functionality.

I am a user, I did not participate in selecting, though I am satisfied with Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia).
