How to Buy

Evaluating, purchasing, and implementing a new dealer management solution is an important project and can be a critical decision for your company. Your vital business data will reside within it and it will become an important part of the success of your business. Not only does your new solution have to meet your current needs, it also has to address your future goals. It might seem like a daunting challenge to make the right decision but it doesn’t have to be that complicated.

At IDS, we have helped many companies, just like yours, through this process and continue to enable them to make sound, profitable decisions.

The Buying Process

At Integrated Dealer Systems we take a very hands-on approach to helping you with the evaluation and purchase process. We understand that this will be an important decision for your company and our goal is to help you make the right decision so that you never have to do it again.

Initial Contact

Once you complete the form below, one of our inside account representatives will speak with you and ask some basic questions about your organization and your specific business objectives. If you would like to continue the process, the next step in the buying process will be to conduct a business requirements consultation.

Business Requirements Consultation

One of our senior account representatives will contact you by phone for a business requirements consultation. Our account representatives are not only very knowledgeable about the products and services that we offer, they also have a great deal of experience with the unique business processes in your industry. They will use this knowledge and experience to make some specific recommendations for your organization.

Onsite Evaluation and Product Demonstration

Once the business requirements consultation is complete and you have determined that an IDS product is a good fit for your business, your account representative will make an appointment to meet with you at your business location. Additional information will be gathered in person from the department managers and decision makers within your company. At that point we will be able to give you a product demonstration that is geared towards your particular business needs.

Business Solution Proposal

After the product demonstration, you will be presented with a business solutions proposal detailing the particular products and services recommended to accomplish your objectives.

Financing Options
If you’re ready to invest in a new dealer management system, and cash flow is a factor, IDS has financing options available.

IDS has developed trusted relationships with companies that specialize in the financing of business management solutions, including hardware, software and services. If financing makes sense for your organization, be sure to ask your sales consultant for referrals to some of our preferred partners.

“Managing the dealership is so smooth thanks to Astra—it does everything that we need it to do. There is no way we could operate today without Astra. Doing business the old way would require double the internal staff and tons of paperwork.”
