A dealership management system (DMS) or auto dealership management system is a bundled management information system created specifically for automotive industry car dealerships or large equipment manufacturers, such as General Motors, Ford, Fiat Chrysler dealerships, and also adapted for cars, boats, bikes, RV, and power sports dealers. These systems often contain software that cater to the needs of the finance, sales, parts, inventory and administration components of running the dealership. One of their functions can be automating tax returns.[1] Other more sophisticated features can include online marketing tools and analytics on deals. Newer DMS systems have seen utilization of mobile platforms as well. Starting in 2019, the first new next generation of 'true cloud' web platform DMS SaaS solutions have entered the market for franchised light duty vehicle dealerships with the release of VUE® web DMS by Dominion Dealer Solutions, a division of Dominion Enterprises. SaaS DMS systems eliminate computer hardware and maintenance responsibility and cost, while simplifying deployment and integration.
