dealer management

Utilized by Independent and Franchise dealers (automotive, heavy equipment, motorcycle, RV, trailer, marine, and others) to profitably and successfully manage their business--in both standalone or network environments.  Inventory management, customer management, buy here/pay here (with the ability to print a payment coupon booklet or schedule), F&I, retail and wholesale, contract and forms printing, reports, built-in accounting and more.


​A true lease/rent to purchase software program, not a DMS modified to print lease to purchase forms.  This software includes all of our Dealer Management features.  We released the original version of this software in 1990.  With experience as a new care franchise dealer with a lease to purchase lot, and over 20 years serving our lease to purchase clients, we feel that no software company understands this type of sale more than we do.  We know the details, and provide these subscribers with a weekly Webinar to share valuable strategies to make your dealership highly successful.


Custom designed at the request of Deputy Registrar offices, a forms printing software program which gives you the ease of completing your State forms onscreen and printing to plain paper.  Once you have printed all forms for a customer, ending that session deletes the customer's information to address privacy concerns.



Our software is written in a time-tested and trusted software language used by governments and large corporations.  Designed by people who have been new and used vehicle Dealers, and designing software for over 25 years.  This experience is invaluable when it comes to issues that can arise in an ever-changing software and hardware environment.  Regarding your data, we feel strongly that sensitive data and devices should be kept in-house; therefore, our software programs reside on your computers.  However, you have the option to have the software reside on the Cloud or third-party hardware.


Internet-based training and technical support is included in your subscription.  There is no charge to reinstall or move the software to a new computer.  Most forms are programmed at no charge.  We do not charge an initial fee to sign up.  We do not require long-term contracts, our software is subscription based.  We do not start you at a "fixed rate" maintained for a period of time, only to raise it substantially after that time.  We are able to offer an exceptional value at low pricing, thanks to our substantial client base.


software training

Every week, we offer one-on-one software training sessions via the Internet for our software products.  You or your employees access the training right from your desktop.  And, for your privacy, each session is limited to one client (the the option of having multiple employees in that session.  The software is easily navigated; however, we offer training to ensure you and your employees are up to speed quickly.

lease/rent to purchase training

With experience as a new car franchise dealer with a lease to purchase lot, and over two decades serving our lease/rent to purchase client base, we feel that no software company understands this type of sale more than we do.  Lease to purchase is an effective tool for our economic environment, and a wonderful product for those of your customers who have had bankruptcies, want another option to purchase your product without long-term commitments, or are struggling with credit or financing.  We know the details and, in addition to software training, provide these subscribers with a weekly live Webinar in which we offer valuable strategies to make your dealership more successful.
