Darrin Smith commented on Mike Esposito's blog post Overwhelmed by Technology Choices at NADA? Here’s All You Need to Know.
"Great reminder of how important the fundamentals are in order for a store to take full advantage of today's technology. I've seen your examples from both sides of the desk and couldn't agree more. Thanks Mike."

One Command

Every once in a while a client will ask me to recommend a third party vendor. Sometimes they'll ask "what are some of your other dealers doing?" looking for my professional guidance. Being a DMS company we like to play well with others so if the question pertains to say; a CRM tool I simply let them know ALL of the vendors our dealers use with success and recommend they look at each to find the best fit.Recently I had a dealer ask about automated contacts in addition to what their CRM tool…See More

Richard Bustillo on Expense Control and Supplier Management

"Great reminder Richard. When my dad had his store we did the "vender recap" every year (usually in the fall). It allowed us to not only be aware of who did what, but also made the ones that increased their fees (for whatever reason; if…"

"Very true to the mark with the paraphrased grand parents scenario. In my first-life-after-college job I worked for a professional graphics lab (early '90s) and they had decided to opt for an IVR. Ironically my company liked my voice and opted…"

Darrin Smith commented on Tom Gorham's blog post From the Trenches - Digital Vendor – How do you sell your wares?
"Great post Tom. As a dealer-kid-turned-vendor I was wary of the "dark side" before taking that leap. Working with my dad at his store for many years, as well as dealing with vendor reps you describe, taught me NOT what to do. Thanks again…"

ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
At Dealertrack, we’re building the future of DMS. The Dealertrack DMS provides robust functionality and the real-time data you need to maximize profits. It features reporting that can be customized for your business, allowing you to view the big picture, or with a few clicks drill down to the source documents for a precise view.

Our software suite is designed to reduce management hours, not add to them. That means delivering a comprehensive system for either franchised or independent dealerships. While our DMS is full featured, we also have additional offerings to support the unique needs of your business.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I have just begun my career with Dealertrack. Prior to this recent move I was with OneCommand as well as with ACSDMS for 5 years. Before that I worked with my dad for many years at his GM dealership in Bennington VT. I graduated from the NADA Dealer Candidate Academy in 1998.

I like my profile photo…. I do. It’s warm and friendly (at least to me it is).
