Dragon hits six million

New research from Dragon2000 shows that through its DragonDMS software, garages and workshops have completed six million services and charged for 13.3 million service labour hours, since it was launched.

Dragon2000 has recorded significant growth in new customers over the last 12 months and has in excess of 1,000 garages and workshops across the UK, using its DMS system – integrated software for all aspects of car dealer and garage businesses.

Mark Kelland, commercial manager of Dragon2000, said, ‘We are delighted with our growth and success and it is testament to the passion and dedication of our staff who develop and support our software and websites. Over the 12 months, we have experienced a surge in garage and workshop website and DMS enquiries.

‘We have been providing DragonDMS to garages and workshops over the last 23 years and a number of our customers have been with us for over two decades.  We continually listen to our customers and shape our products and services to meet their needs in a changing market.

‘Increasingly garages and workshops are getting bogged down with maintaining many separate systems and re-keying data, so we are seeing an increase in demand for our bespoke websites, which integrate fully with our dealer management system.

‘Integrations are key, and using the DragonDMS software garages and workshops can also benefit from integrations which allow them to manage vehicle health checks, time and attendance monitoring, taking card payments and integrating transactions into their accounts. It’s a huge time saver, and eliminates a lot of errors associated with re-typing or copying data from one system to another.’
