    You mean when CDK figured their company would sell better if they inflated revenue like Reynolds? :D

    Exactly. Capitalism at its finest. There are so many other {good} choices and we are moving on.

    There are several that offer true Multi-Company accounting and many running multi rooftop groups. Just takes the balls to make the change.

    As for what RR charges, they charge so much for their actual DMS there should be no other charges, I know of a Ford Dealer in SC on RR, single point 150 unit per month store paying $18K per month. Now granted the DP did not use his head when he signed that contract but I don't even know how that sales rep sleeps at night. He could have another solution for less than $3K per month that does more and without a contract.

    The times of "we only have 2 choices" are over and have been for several years now.

    Switch to https://www.autosoftdms.com. I know Bryce Veon, personally, and his product is cheaper and better. Reynolds doesn't like them, because they offer a superior product, which is cheaper / flexible and with better support.

    @andwrig@andwrig

    I would encourage you, with @Jeff Kershner@Jeff Kershner permission and for the fact that we all know what REY and CDK do, that you write something about the transition from them to DL and what are their biggest points. I think smaller vendors in as niche of giants could use that help and become very useful for dealers in need of alternatives.

    Jeff and Yago - I would be willing to do that at some point in the future. It's only been approximately 90 days since our switch. It's gone quite well for the most part but I'd like to get more time under my belt so I can speak in greater detail.

    Whenever you fell is right, I think it would be a valuable doc for many dealers out there
