“Andrews and Wallis Group have been using Dealer Drive since July 2014. The group implemented Dealer Drive over 4 dealerships both in Sales and Service and covers all; Loan cars, Demonstrators, Test-Drives and Staff drive cars.

The Dealer Drive system is a fantastic efficient tool to manage a paperless system with simple interfaces that all staff can use easily. We have saved time and cost with no paper use or insecure storage of customer licenses.

We would have trouble going back to a loan book and photocopies in a folder now. Additionally the CRM side of Dealer Drive is fantastic in marketing to those customers who have taken a demo or loan gaining further sales opportunities. I would recommend Dealer Drive to any business loaning or driving cars on a daily basis.”
