DealerSocket

The sales system (Black Bird) is amazing, but if you're looking for a service scheduling solution, keep moving, this is not helpful. Their support doesn't even know what their program can do, online scheduling for guests is AWFUL, and the list goes on and on. Our business didn't even keep it a year because it was that frustrating for our scheduling team, for guests booking online, and ESPECIALLY for our service advisers and service managers.

Cons

DealerSocket

  • The service scheduler is mediocre at best. It offers very little control over what's coming in and is extremely clunky.
  • Adding a new user is a terrible experience for service. They need to be added to the BlackBird side, then to the scheduler as an adviser, then given permissions as a user, then given override permissions. It's way too complicated.
  • Their support team knew less about their scheduler than I did. I was almost training them within a week.

Alternatives Considered

DealerSocket

We were using CDK CRM for the sales side of things, which was greatly outdated and DealerSocket absolutely blew it out of the water. However, we were using Xtime for service prior to the switch and after just 10 months, we are back to our original system. We wanted to integrate both sales and service within the same system, which is why we went with DealerSocket, but it's not worth all the trouble it brings.
