“We have been working with Pinewood since 2010. All parts of Pinewood DMS are beneficial to us, especially CRM and the Aftersales Diary. It’s very important that the DMS supports integration with our manufacturers, in particular, the Vauxhall warranty integration is very good. All departments can see information instantly and see when amendments are actioned. Staff engage and learn quickly with the system, it’s menu driven and each step is easy to follow. Pinewood DMS has helped shape our processes in each department, it controls the work flow, ensuring each step is followed to arrive at a sale. One system, linking all departments, holding all vehicle and customer data, with regular system enhancements and system usage reviews…it suits our business needs for a fully integrated DMS, it’s an excellent system with good support, continuing development and integration with manufacturers.”
