    Anyone using or used Dealer Activator, and if so what are your thoughts on it?

    We started using DealActivator about two months ago and it's, so far, my favorite equity mining tool. After using Xtream, AutoAlert, and Target Pro I find it to be the easiest to use, gives the best info, and just gives me everything I would want. However, if you're not using TargetPro, which...

    VinSolutions issues

    I must be living in a different world than the last couple of posters. I have very few issues with Vin. I call support maybe once every month or so and get a fix usually the same day. Their support is awesome! The product is the best I've ever used as an ILM/CRM. I do admit we do not use the...

    VinSolutions issues

    I have to say after reading this that I am quite shocked at all the problems people are having with Vin. We've been with Vin for a year and a half and it is a great CRM/ILM. All software programs I've used over the last 14 years managing Internet departments have had issues come up and they...

    Autotrader acquires Vinsolutions

    A year or two ago I would have been very worried about this news. I hated AutoTrader and they have been my least favorite Internet company for years. They have really changed the last couple of years and I've grown to understand them. They also have left VAuto alone and that relationship...

    Silly Shit in the car business! Post your favorite!

    At least you see how this could have been taken! That shows the quality of the person you are. It certainly came off wrong if your intent was humor! Now back to silly things in the car business my favorite was when one of my fellow salespeople 20 years ago had his father come in to buy a car...

    Silly Shit in the car business! Post your favorite!

    Exactly what this thread is! As I said we're not idiots! Agendas always show through. Now I can say that this "hate" probably comes from their being a great company with great ideas which other companies envy! (Although why Dealer.Com would be involved I don't know since they have their own...

    A Shout Out To ContactAtOnce!

    I'm sure it's rare that companies receive a thank you but I for one feel it's just as important to pass along positive, as well as negative feedback. Signing up with Contact At Once was the single best move we've done to generate quality leads on people READY TO BUY! Last month alone we sold...
