[responsive]DME logo[/responsive]DMEautomotive’s Driver Connect App is one of the most widely used mobile applications in the auto industry and was in version 2.8 at the time of our review. DME’s mobile app is used in five of the top ten dealer groups in the country. We[responsive]DME SS[/responsive]are pleased to announce that DMEautomotive has won an AWA for their Mobile Application for the second year in a row.

Dealers using this app often include the app installation on the customer’s phone during the delivery process. Since last year, mobile app activity by DMS customers has grown by 190%.

On January 15, 2015, DMEautomotive unveiled version 3.0 of Driver Connect, which was too late for PCG Consulting to include in our full review, but we were excited to learn some details about the upgrade. The industry is buzzing with talk about transforming the customer experience at franchise automotive dealerships. The new tap-to-pay functionality of Driver Connect will not only increase utilization but it will also create happy customers!

DMEautomotive’s well-designed set of features, excellent retention tool, integration with their Lifecycle Marketing Platform, single login to Xtime and DealerSocket for appointment posting in DMS, and more earned them an award in the Mobile Applications category once again. Congratulations to DMEautomotive!
