Howards Group Completes Nationwide iDealFile Roll-Out
Howards Group is one of the latest dealer groups to be feeling the benefits of digital document management as it completes the switch to iDealFile – MotorDocs’ digital deal file platform.
Established as a single, family-owned garage in 1972, Howards has evolved into a multi-site group with 20 dealerships across 5 sites in Weston-super-Mare, Taunton, Yeovil and Dorchester. With over 40 years of automotive heritage, Howards is proud of the experience and reputation it has gained for delivering quality products and services that customers can trust.
Howards Group originally met the MotorDocs team in May 2019 for an initial discussion about the transformative effect of digital document management to help streamline and centralise the administration of its multi-site dealer group set-up. Positive discussions led to the execution of a seamless and strategic implementation plan - with the first Howards site installation starting in March 2020 and a site-wide rollout completed by the end of June.
Peter Haynes, Managing Director of Howards Motor Group commented: “It’s the perfect fit for us. By digitising our post-sale processes and removing huge volumes of paperwork, we have delivered significant cost savings and efficiencies already. We have a level of transparency and compliance we could only have dreamed of in the paper world.
"For us, this is about much more than document storage. The introduction of iDealFile has and will continue to improve workflow right across the group – the ability to capture signatures remotely and in a contact-free way is just one example of the added-value functionality that iDealFile offers and is a real win in the current times.”
MotorDocs Joint Managing Director, Andy Mee, added: “We feel passionately about helping retailers work as efficiently and securely as possible. By installing iDealFile, Howards Group has access to a range of benefits above and beyond a simple document storage solution.
“Our cloud-based system will help Howards Group remove huge volumes of paperwork as well as introducing a wide range of security, productivity, financial, compliance and environmental benefits. We've enjoyed working together with Howards Group to help them embrace the power of digital deal file management.”
