Cloud based, or web based software, has quickly became the best way to deliver software to users.

Being that cloud based software doesn't require buying servers, that got me thinking... is it "green" software?

There are numerous advantages to cloud based software:

1. Better cross platform support - Windows XP, Windows 7, Mac,…


Streamlining the Sales Process

Posted on August 20, 2010 at 7:47pm 9 Comments

Dealers use a variety of software applications as part of their sales process. Using too many software applications requires a lot of duplicate data entry and jumping through different tools. This can create errors and slow down the process.

Automated emails and similar vehicles

Posted on September 27, 2009 at 12:00pm 14 Comments

Automated emails are very important to the success of your internet sales.

Auto responders also provide opportunity to provide information that they did not receive on the website they submitted the lead from. For example, your auto responder can automatically send pictures and brochures of the car they were… Continue

Saw you left a comment on this blog post about Arkona. Did you know that was my very first blog? The original BlogPro Automotive. The header banner is missing, probably because I removed it from our servers. Old skool, that's for sure.

Happy first day in the new office! You all deserve it. Now I just wonder how quickly you'll outgrow this one :)

I noticed you graduated from DeVry. Which campus? I went to the one in Addison, IL.

Great to speak with you at the show Matt. Funny how you meet people despite only speaking via phone or internet. I hope the show went well for you. I did a quick check and we seem to have a basic feed from you for one dealer, but I'll follow up about the rest of the dealers via email later. Take care! I hope the snow isn't too bad by you. My family and friends in IN and IL are getting killed!
