Business сhallenge

The project aim is the automation of all car dealers business processes, including:

  • customer support during a new car purchase (test drive, insurance, credit, trade-in, additional equipment, registration in the motor licensing and inspection department);
  • customer support in car service (repair, servicing, spares);
  • spares purchasing and registration;
  • accounting and human resource management;
  • data analysis.

Our solution

To hasten the system development and implementation, and to reduce the time between the first release and receiving feedback from real users, we chose Ruby On Rails 4.0 and the Scrum methodology to use. The system supports various databases: PostgreSQL and MySQL. Native JavaScript and BootStrap were employed to create interactive UI. To automate the work with Clients, we developed the most popular module — CRM. The module includes virtual desktops for each employee role interacting with the dealer’s Clients. The desktop includes a set of tasks concerning customer support. For services and document circulation automation, we developed such modules as «Service», «Spares», «Accounting».

Streamlining car dealership operations

The CRM module was the most crucial part of this project, encompassing the creation of virtual desktops tailored for various employee roles. These desktops facilitated efficient customer support and streamlined task management. Additionally, the modules developed for service, spares, and accounting significantly automated the document circulation and service processes.

Additional features:

  • navigation in the system without browser page reloads;
  • flexible security system for user access rights management;
  • interface for interaction with the customer’s previous systems;
  • advanced data analysis tools for enhanced business decision-making;
  • real-time inventory management for spares and services.
