Thinking of Diversifying Your Dealership? 5 Reasons to Work Creative Services Into Your Solutions Suite, from imageSource.
A creative services team of custom web developers, designers and digital strategists can be a strategic and profitable business move for your dealership, and a value-add for customers. Business process automation teams typically design solutions to collect, store and retrieve documents and data more efficiently for a variety of business scenarios.
With a creative services team on board, your dealership can help clients collect their data more efficiently and use their data to implement additional workplace automation. Here are five reasons why creative services can be a good addition to your dealership’s solutions suite:
1. Upsell with custom application solutions
A unique service to offer is custom solutions tied into off-the-shelf software. There is a substantial opportunity to cross-collaborate strategic service offerings (Document Management software—PaperCut, PlanetPress and ViaWorks, etc.) with custom application development skills to focus on automating office workflow tasks. These engagements focus on lowering cost and increasing efficiency with our document management and MPS hardware solutions. This collaboration takes these ideas even further. Your team can assess business workflow scenarios— payroll processing, invoicing, taking orders or packing inventory— and identify redundancies and replace them with cost saving automation. A team of software developers can write custom applications to allow the sharing of data across multiple software suites: your ERP system can talk to your payroll system and your in-the-field sales reps can place realtime orders into your ERP using tablet based web apps. These integrations can eliminate redundant data entry and streamline an out-of-date business process.
