It’s been a tough year for commercial vehicle OEMs, with profit margins strained due to increased competition from emerging markets, tightening environmental regulations, and continued fuel price volatility. These challenges are trickling down to dealerships, so it’s no wonder that many groups are seeking to consolidate their operations and rein in costs through strategic mergers and acquisitions.
The good news is, within this complex, ever-changing environment, there are significant opportunities for growth and profitability for those willing to implement necessary strategies to ensure a seamless transition.
That’s where we come in. Just as our Procede Software team was there to help you every step of the way when you first decided to make the switch to Excede DMS, we will be there for you if and when the time comes to implement a successful merger with, or acquisition of another dealership.
If you’re adding new locations/branches:
Our developer agility, direct access to data, and the fact that “we listen” are clear advantages for Procede customers in a merger or acquisition situation. From the onset, our leadership team will assist you with the database setup and conversion processes. Further on, we will work with you in order to ensure continued streamlining of operations and processes.
If you’re adding new employees:
We can provide onsite or web-based training for Excede DMS. Thanks to our familiar Windows® platform, SQL Server database, and industry standard utilities and processes, new staff can be up to speed in no time.
Best of all, our approach is a collaborative one. We will work with you to optimize Excede DMS in order to align with your newly merged business processes and make it easier to gain consistency across all your dealership operations.
Bottom line: It makes good business sense to have the Procede team work with you to ensure the success of your business growth.
