Streamlining Dealership Operations

In today’s era of digital transformation, the powersports industry is no exception to the wave of modernization sweeping across businesses worldwide. Lightspeed, a pioneer in Dealer Management Solutions (DMS), recently unveiled its third original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to adopt Multi-Point Inspection (MPI) forms. This development sparks a crucial conversation about the importance of dealership modernization and the transition away from traditional paper-based processes.

The Positive Shift Toward Digital Forms

Why is the move toward digital forms such a positive development? Let’s explore:

  1. Environmental Impact: By reducing our reliance on paper, we take a significant step toward conserving trees and minimizing our ecological footprint. Going digital means less paper waste.
  2. Efficient Space Utilization: Traditional paper-based processes require physical storage space—think filing cabinets filled with paperwork. With digital forms, dealerships no longer need to allocate valuable real estate for storing documents. Instead, these records seamlessly reside within customers’ accounts in the DMS.
  3. Catering to Preferences: As workforce demographics evolve, the younger generation entering the workforce prefers cutting-edge technology. Digital MPI forms not only expedite inspection procedures but also cater to customers’ preferences by delivering inspection reports electronically. Say goodbye to the risk of losing a physical copy!

The Power of MPI Forms

  • Efficiency Boost: Lightspeed’s MPI forms empower dealerships to enhance efficiency. By directly emailing or texting these forms to customers, the entire process becomes swift and hassle-free.
  • Instant Signatures: The synergy between Lightspeed’s MPI forms and their eSignature product is remarkable. Dealerships can obtain electronic signatures instantly, eliminating the need for paper-based processes.
  • Record Keeping Made Easy: Signed forms are effortlessly stored in customers’ records, ensuring compliance and facilitating future reference.

Modernizing Dealership Operations
