Electronic Distribution of DCS Application Enhancements
many instances, changes in business procedures require
new application program changes. Deploying such changes
can be a daunting proposition, particularly the task
of ensuring that all dealers are using the same version
of the software. With Strategic's DCS, you can automatically
distribute program modifications and enhancements to
your dealerships' DCS computers. When such updates are
distributed, they are automatically installed and self-configured
without any intervention at the dealer level. The process
is completely invisible to the user, and allows you
to update and distribute your software at any time,
without worrying about dealership impact.
Electronic software distribution gives you standardized
control over your dealers' DCS sysstems. You control
when software changes are applied. CD and disk duplication,
mailing, and resource expenses are eliminated. You need
no longer worry about dealers applying changes too soon
or too late; YOU control when updates are sent and installed,
in a process that is completely invisible to your dealers!
Electronic Distributed Database Maintenance
information, such as part numbers, part prices, labor
times and dealer numbers, is centrally maintained
on your computers. Changes to such data are routinely
made, sometimes on a daily basis. Keeping dealers
informed of changes in this data can be expensive,
time-consuming, and confusing. With Strategic's integrated
DCS solution, distributing changes to this operational
data is controlled centrally through the system, without
requiring intervention from dealers or internal system
staff. Our system applications log any modifications
to operational data that could impact dealer DCS functions.
Once approved for distribution, these changes are
automatically sent to each dealer's computer and seamlessly
update the appropriate database files.
Dealer DCS computers and application programs always
reflect the most current information. Electronic Distributed
Database updates ensure that the operational data
viewed by dealers is always the same as the data contained
in your central databases. This allows the system
