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. Other more sophisticated features can include online marketing tools and analytics on deals. Newer DMS systems have seen utilization of mobile platforms as well.
