West Middlesex, PA (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
Dealer management system provider AutoSoft International (http://www.autosoft-asi.com) today announced a new, easier-to-use and more powerful integration with the General Motors Vehicle Inquiry System (VIS).
With this newest upgrade, service departments within dealerships on the Autosoft DMS can now view previous recalls and service records and other critical vehicle information without having to go outside the DMS application. This makes using AutoSoft-GM VIS simplier and more user-friendly for service department personnel to use, increasing efficiency and operation productivity.
AutoSoft is an endorsed GM Integrated Dealer Management System (IDMS) provider. A major benefit of GM VIS is the integration of the scheduling applications within the AutoSoft service module. With use of the scheduling system, service personnel can import and export customer information from the scheduling module to the repair order screen. This allows the service department to view the vehicles' summary information, previous field actions, and past service information related to the customer's scheduled service
This latest addition of GM VIS can also be printed to paper for the customer, providing reassurance by enabling them to view their entire vehicle’s history. Some additional benefits are:
- Greater user convenience, with the GM VIS screen located within the AutoSoft DMS
- Improved user interface, with information displayed on an easy-to-read screen
- Instant retrieval of vehicle information with a click of the Get VIS button (located on the start conditions screen or by pulling up an existing customer profile).
- Increased service efficiency with sleeker more user-friendly interface.
Current and future customers will find accessing the GM VIS information will save time and increase efficiency by having crucial vehicle data available immediately with a click of the button.
“I wish when I was a service manager we had this kind of convenience of the effortless use of the VIS Button; it would almost guarantee more operational efficiency within my service department,” said Dick Scott, parts and service support staff, AutoSoft.
