Dominion Dealer Solutions, the nation’s largest provider of comprehensive inventory management solutions, data services and merchandising tools, as well as a leading provider of automotive data, announced today the launch of a suite of cloud-based services based on Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Windows Intune and Microsoft Azure technology. This combined platform is specifically designed to make core information technology services easier to use for automotive dealers nationwide.

These services include a full range of applications integrated into a few subscription offerings for easy dealer implementation and management:

  • Web and desktop productivity applications: Microsoft Office Professional Plus and Microsoft Office Web Apps
  • Email: Microsoft Exchange Online with mobile device support
  • Portal, content management and collaboration: Microsoft SharePoint Online
  • Instant messaging / screen sharing / VOIP telephony: Microsoft Lync Online
  • PC and mobile device management: Microsoft Windows Intune
  • Dealer private cloud for hosting a dealer’s own applications and services: Microsoft Azure

“These services offer dealers the opportunity to improve collaboration between employees and customers, increase internal productivity, and reduce the management effort and expense of the technologies that are typically used with DMS and other dealership software solutions,” stated John Reed, vice president of Dominion DMS for Dominion Dealer Solutions.

These services are available as part of the Dominion Dealer Management System (DMS) or as a separate service, regardless of the DMS or other applications deployed in a dealership or dealer group. The services assist dealers in providing up-to-date software and services while improving overall IT manageability.

Van Koppersmith, president of Dominion DMS, added, “Office 365, Intune and Azure offer rich hosted services that allow dealers to update their operations and transition services to the cloud at their own pace, while still taking advantage of all the great features of the software they already have in production.”
