New cloud-based platform has become a major contender with established DMS brands
EL DORADO HILLS, CA – November 29, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –
ZiiOS, a Dealer Management System (DMS) provider and a division of Dominion Enterprises, is quickly becoming a major player among established DMS brands in the powersports industry. ZiiOS supports cloud-based technology and encourages the move to the cloud for convenience and cost effectiveness.
“Having the ability to access your dealership’s reports and inventory data from anywhere with internet access is incredibly empowering. It allows a dealer to make business decisions wherever they are, based on factual and up to the moment data,” said CJ Pedler, director of client services.
Cloud computing, or “Software-as-a-Service,” allows the dealer access to data and software from any internet-connected computer. Cloud computing was first created in the 1990s as a more convenient way to store and access data. Cost effectiveness, system scalability, automatic updates, and remote access capability are among the top reasons cloud computing has proven beneficial for businesses.
“ZiiOS provides a level of advancements and features previously thought to be unobtainable in the industry. Our system is designed to address the specific frustrations dealers have with current DMS providers. ZiiOS customers enjoy significant increases in efficiency which directly affects the bottom line,” said Dave Yeargin, general manager for ZiiOS.
Forward-thinking companies like Amazon, Google, Apple and Microsoft understand the cloud’s robust capability and have already adapted it for their own business processes. Notably, products such as Office 365, iCloud, Salesforce, and Sugar CRM are examples of cloud-based systems. With a cloud-based DMS, powersports dealers can now realize the extremely low overhead costs and the ability to easily scale the DMS to match their business needs.
While current DMS providers require an expensive investment of proprietary hardware and software licenses, ZiiOS offers a positive shift from antiquated technology and excessive costs. The ZiiOS dealer simply pays a small upfront fee (under $1,500) and a low monthly per-user fee. This fee includes all software updates, OEM model data, OEM warranty and sales incentive data, taxation database, zip code database, forms programming, and vendor price books/updates.
ZiiOS is changing the way powersports dealers do business. As the premier developer of Dealer Management Software-as-a-Service applications, ZiiOS provides cloud-based tools to optimize their dealership business processes in the sales, F&I, parts, accounting and service departments.
