Dragon2000 has partnered with Codeweavers to offer an “industry-first” finance integration into the firm’s dealer management system, DragonDMS.
The feature will allow car dealers to retrieve finance quotes alongside their stock and manage the resulting proposals from within one place.
Codeweavers’ commercial director, Shaun Harris (pictured), said: "We developed a range of APIs to remove the need for dealers to access multiple point of sale systems and bring finance to the fore in the dealer’s primary customer facing system.”
The integrated Finance Calculator enables live finance quote retrival alongside monthly payment budget searches across the entirety of a car dealer's stock.
Finance applications will be pulled through into the CRM section and linked to the customers enquiry record.
Dragon2000’s commercial manager, Mark Kelland, said: "Sales staff can easily adjust terms and figures to suit, in front of the customer and then submit a proposal without having to switch to another programme and ask repeat questions, making the sales process quick, easy and seamless.”
A pilot of the Codeweavers finance integration is currently being conducted with a number of selected dealers and the integration will be made available to all dealers using DragonDMS in the coming weeks.
