The Strategic Dealer Communications System (DCS), a complimentary product, enables you to push the data entry and validation requirement out to your dealerships, while providing them with a user-friendly way to educate them on the benefits of warranty controls. With DCS, you need not waste warranty auditors' valuable time in correcting invalid data entry This allows your warranty staff to focus their attention on those claims which fall outside of the normal and expected range and cause undue increases in your warranty expenses.
