DMS Consulting

With over 30 years of experience, we’re the most trusted dealership technology advisor, helping dealers navigate an ever-changing industry with our dealership management software.

We know what DMS problems dealers are facing. Learn more about how we can reduce your DMS bill, improve your contract terms, and maximize your product configuration.


When buying or selling a store, dealers are faced with a variety of different challenges. One often overlooked is the DMS contract. Many vendors offer multi-year agreements that must be addressed when buying or selling a location.

If there is a current DMS agreement with a DMS provider, the buyer or seller must take on that agreement. Any remaining obligation must be fulfilled before the agreement can be canceled. Gillrie works with dealers to ensure the best possible outcome when buying or selling a location.

By hiring Gillrie, you can ensure you completely understand the agreement and what obligations you might have.

Software Review

Purchasing software has never been as complicated as it is today. Combining tools from DMS providers with 3rd party tools, dealers have countless options when deciding which software to use. The challenge is tracking all of these different software packages and what capabilities they offer.

This becomes even more complicated when you take into account OEM-mandated software. Many dealers find themselves in situations where they’re paying for two platforms that do the same things. Dealers also commonly miss out on the potential savings of consolidating everyone onto a single vendor/contract.

This is why Gillrie offers a complete software review. By providing us with your bills, we can determine what is being used, how much it should cost, and provide you with potential options. We can also partner with you to ensure you avoid these pitfalls.

We were in need of a new computer system, before going into negotiations we hired the Gillrie Institute. The Gillrie Institute gave us step by step instructions not only on the hardware, but our monthlies are less than before on a new system, the addendums the Gillrie Institute provided solved many of the problems dealers have with contractual issues, and we saved a lot of money.
