Biggest Issues With Your CRM?

Hello! I wish I would have found this sooner.

I've built my own CRM and am considering licensing it for other dealers. What issues are you having with your CRM(s)?

Quick background... I own Wheel Kinetics, a used car dealership in Arizona. We started selling mostly online in 2010, and none of the CRMs would sell vehicles how I wanted them sold, so I built my own. Now it's morphed into a huge app that also does my accounting, recon management (including a checklist app for the mechanics), customer payment via ACH, and can even automatically bid at auctions. And generating vehicle specific advertising pictures on the fly, e.g. Image 2021-03-10 at 11.12.23 AM.jpg

You can view the current version at Wheel Kinetics and see the future version at Crosscut (My dealership's rebrand, site is in testing now, buggy, and not feature complete -- launching late this month).

Here's a quick click around of the backend/admin

Any comments or insight is helpful. Happy again to be a new member!

Well the number one CRM problem out there is that sales reps won't even use the dang thing because there are too many features. I love VinSolutions as much as the next gal, but I feel like there are 30,000 things on my screen at all times. Keep it simple, that way they can squeeze notes in between appointments.
