Manage your auto sales business with this well-designed software.

We see a lot of poorly done software that is ostensibly meant for a specific business purpose but that looks like it was designed by someone who had no actual knowledge of the business in question. AutoSmart Dealership Management System, however, is refreshingly different. This attractive software program is easy to use and contains features that could be very helpful in managing an automotive business.

The program's interface is sleek and easy to navigate, with screens for sales, purchasing, and maintenance, as well as configuration options for contacts and other important information. We found it quite easy to record purchase and sales transactions, and the program creates professional-looking invoices automatically. We really appreciated how easy it was to customize AutoSmart Dealership Management System to meet our needs; we were able to add vendors, salespeople, customers, mechanics, and other people to the database in a quick and intuitive way, and it was equally simple to add vehicle makes and models. The program also has tools for handling chargebacks and sales commissions. A report feature lets you create a wide range of reports, including current inventory, profit and loss reports, and sales and purchase histories. There's no Help file, but anyone with basic computer skills and auto sales experience will be able to figure it out. Overall, we were quite impressed with AutoSmart Dealership Management System, and we recommend it to any dealership looking for a simple way to manage its business.

AutoSmart Dealership Management System comes as a ZIP file. It installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.
