Likelihood to Recommend

CDK Drive

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.

Honestly, there is very little that I could ask for that this program does not already offer when it comes to maintaining a proper stock of vehicles, and ensuring that the vehicle is competitively priced when compared to similar vehicles at other local dealerships.

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.

  • Gives a solid base of comparison as to the pricing of inventory in the area vs. the potential vehicle you are looking at purchasing or selling.
  • Stores pictures, car fax, like comparisons, and lead info on every unit
  • Gives numerous different ways at analyzing stock units.

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.

vAuto Provision

  • Some of the icons are a little esoteric and hard to understand intuitively.
  • It would be nice if it were able to have preset pricing movements based on the age of unit, kind of like a stop-loss setup.
  • Can be cumbersome to access some programs, e.g. Carfax required 4-5 steps to access.

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.

I have had very little need for customer support on this particular part of the X time suite, but I have dealt with them to a great extent within the fixed operations side of the dealership and they are always extremely responsive, incredibly helpful and are always there for you when needed. A great asset to their company.

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.

This is really the only product I seriously looked at in this segment. It does literally everything I want, it excludes nothing, with nothing there that is not needed. Every feature is great, it works together with the other Xtime products to cover basically every need within an automotive dealership world.

Return on Investment

CDK Drive

  • It has had an enormous impact on lowering our fixed expenses, as everything is less expensive, down to the paper that is used.
  • Data processing costs are down as well due to the fact that multiple facets of the program combine needed processes into one.

vAuto Provision

  • Has increased ROI by enabling better pricing of vehicles, keeps in line with other dealers without underselling.
  • By carefully tracking aged inventory and enabling alerts at set age points, it has positively impacted gross by ensuring inventory turnover.
  • Other than the cost of the program itself, no negative issues with ROI.
