Originally published November 11, 2021. Updated July 11, 2023

Data analytics is moving to the center of the conversation in how heavy equipment dealers approach system management – from managing important data to streamlining communication between warehouses.

Whether you manage a single-location operation or an international enterprise, the right data analytics dashboard informs future decisions and ensures your business continues to run smoothly. In this post, we’ll share four ways dealerships leverage data analytics and business intelligence (BI) tools to foster long-term success.


1. Scalable Automation


Outgrowing your technology is more than just a growing pain; replacing your entire data analytics dashboard is a time-consuming and tedious undertaking for your whole company. There’s nothing worse than your dealership’s technology being unable to scale along with your business. It requires new programs to be implemented, new training and certifications, and can lead to onboarding confusion.

As a result, more and more companies are leaning toward automated analytical solutions that grow with them. These BI solutions can assist your growth by streamlining your services for more efficient daily operations. They also make it easier to adopt repeatable processes and keep all of your teams on the same page, even across locations and departments.


2. Comprehensive Tools


No matter the size of your dealership, having a comprehensive data analytics dashboard that encompasses all your business’s data is a must. With a BI system that operates across your entire platform, your employees will have total visibility into what other departments are doing and can operate smoothly.

Imagine how efficiently your operation would run if the departments of order fulfillment and inventory management communicated within one easy-to-use platform. This is a reality manufacturers are turning to.


3. Data-Driven Core Business Functions


Utilizing a tool that empowers your data to work for you can create better efficiencies across your entire organization.

Programs aren’t just for developers anymore. As more and more companies are automating their services and improving their systems, user experience has been at the front of everyone’s minds.
