The Most Time-Consuming Tasks for Motor Dealers in 2022

23 Mar 2022 Helpful Tips


Time…. It’s the most important part of running a business. As the Australian Car Industry continues to change, many dealers still find themselves wasting time on manual tasks. If your dealership is struggling to find the time to achieve your goals, you could have a big problem.

Here are the most time-consuming tasks for Motor Dealers in 2022 and how your dealership can avoid them.

1. Vehicle Advertising

Vehicle Advertising is an essential but time-consuming task for all motor dealers in 2022. If your dealership sends vehicle listings to advertisers individually, you are wasting significant time and money.

To minimise time-spent on the advertising process, dealers need to automate vehicle advertising using a Dealer Management System. The benefit of automating your vehicle advertising is you can create, customise, and send ads to multiple advertisers at once. You don’t need to waste time re-keying the same vehicle advertising data into multiple systems to achieve the same result. The less time you spend on advertising the more time you will have to close sales and focus on growth.

2. Government Compliance

The Australian Motor Industry is always under the microscope from the ACC and many dealers receive high penalties for non or incorrect compliance. Government Compliance should not be feared, many dealers make the mistake of stressing over Government compliance during the sales process.

Using a Dealer Management System like EasyCars, motor dealers can automate the entire compliance process – making government compliance stress-free and hassle-free.

Another vital but time-consuming task for Motor Dealers is Stock Management. Many dealers often get caught up doing manual stock take, the problem with doing stock take manually is it doesn’t paint the entire picture.

To increase efficiency, Dealers need to automate the stock management process. The benefit of using a system like EasyCars is stock is automatically updated as you buy and sell. As EasyCars is a centralised system, dealers can export simplified stock reports that paint the full picture of your dealerships stock standing.

A Dealer Website is the key to success in 2022. In 2021, 95% of Australian Car Buyers found their next dealership via the internet. With that being said, you need to make sure your listings are up to date at all times.

Many dealerships waste time manually updating website vehicle listings once they sell a car or when new stock comes available. The problem with this is it’s time-consuming and you are prone to error. Using EasyCars DMS, Dealers can automate the entire website vehicle listing process. Vehicles are automatically uploaded and removed once they are bought and sold. Information automatically transfers in the background from EasyCars directly to your dealer website – you don’t need to do a thing.
