Pros: Overall, we are very satisfied with this software. We have been using this software for 3 months now, after coming from one of the major national software brands. It is very easy to use, and our employees all seemed to train and adapt easily. There were a few small glitches, but nothing major. The glitches were on our part, not Auto Soft. All departments integrated and worked well with each other. Accounting was easy and payroll especially, was very easy to run. Accounting has some nice features. The Parts, service and F&I departments all integrate well. The monthly software fee is very reasonable, and has saved our company a lot of money, (several thousands of dollars each month).

Cons: The only small downfall that we can see with Auto Soft, is in the Service Warranty area. When we enter a repair order for warranty submission, there are a few extra steps that we have to enter in order to close it out. There may be a short cut to what we are currently doing, so this may actually not be an issue. Our office manager and our warranty manager are currently working that out. For only being on this system for 3 months, actually everything is going smoothly.

Overall: Training was excellent. The training staff from AutoSoft was very good, and actually stayed on-site to make sure that we didn't have any additional questions. They were extremely knowledgeable about dealership operations and how we could utilize every aspect of the software program. The support at their corporate headquarters has been excellent. They contact us frequently to see if we have any questions, but we haven't needed them. If we ever have to call them in the future for questions, it is nice that they don't charge us for talking with someone, like our previous software company did. I truly believe that the training experience and smooth transition that we had with AutoSoft was in large part, due to the fact that each one of our employees embraced the new system, and knew ahead of time that there would be changes and to go into this with our eyes wide open, not with blinders on. With that being said, our conversion went extremely well, with very few glitches. It was important that we held meetings before we converted and explained to everyone what to expect and why we were making the changes. Everyone came together as a team, and the conversion went smoothly. Even our 40-50-60 year old employees adapted well.

Autosoft is an overall extremely helpful accounting system.

Pros: What I like most about Autosoft overall is how organized it is. It has individual accounts that help you keep track of the most specific things that in turn allow you to manage your business more effectively.

Cons: My least favorite thing about Autosoft is the change I understand will be taking place very soon. From what I was told Autosoft will merge with the internet, which I am not anticipating being as the system as a whole will more than likely change a great deal in the process. I'm not looking forward to re-learning everything there is to do with the system.

Overall: Effective management within the department I am currently in.

Pros: Cheap Cost, live customer care, easy to Use

Cons: Not very in-depth with their reporting tools, not always able to achieve what I need to

Overall: AutoSoft isn't the most involved DMS out there, and there are times when we need in-depth reporting that we're unable to achieve, but it's also one of the cheapest DMS's out there - hence my review title - you get what you pay for. For the most part, it gets the job done!

Recommendations to other buyers: People will get what they pay for. If they're a dealership that doesn't go too in-depth with reporting, or ask too much of the DMS, it will suit their needs just fine!

Cons: We had Auto Soft do to limited abilities to in their software. We haven't returned but have found major improvements on their software.

When something happens they can't explain, it's a "glitch". You have to watch your payroll closely

Pros: Easy to use. Accounting side is easy to use. this is about the only pro I can give you for this software.

Cons: Too many things happen that they can't explain. Old vehicle sales show up in the sales journal and the only explanation is someone in sales was "looking that customer up & pushed the old sale back to accounting." Hogwash. Too many glitches happen that they can't explain. There for a while there were so many that I was wondering if a disgruntled employee might be sabotaging their software.

Overall: easy program for someone new to company to learn.

Pros: Access from everywhere. Also, the idea of their interface is nice, and relatively easy to navigate.

Cons: Broken promises began immediately after Sign-Up. Excuse for problems is that "a fix is coming" .......never does. Customer support is incapable of understanding problems and addressing them. It's a fantastic illustration of the old "you get what you pay for" more your money will be better spent anywhere but here. Don't be fooled

Overall: A greater understanding on how people can ruin a great idea simply from lack of care for their customers.

Pros: the only thing to like about it is the price and that's where it ends, works on the vehicle sales side but not at all in service

Cons: Everything, constant problems with losing information in RO's, not adaptable to other information systems. Horrible customer service. What else can I say?

Overall: Overall a bad experience in parts and service.

Cons: It was hard to use at first but became easy when directed to the right places

Comments: Autosoft could be a great product, but it doesn't integrate with ANY of our other programs. We work constantly to keep everything running smoothly between databases, programs and vendors and our biggest (and truthfully only) road block is AutoSoft. By itself, it works great... but unfortunately in today's automotive age, your product has to be able to talk to other products. Also, the couple of times I called support they seemed to know only as much as I do about the product. It's a good price, but in the end, you get what you pay for.

Comments: Information from Repair Orders sometimes will switch from one RO to another, Prices have been going up, up and up forcing us to look for a provider that we get what we pay for. It seems since the business has changed hands its value has plummeted
