Hardware Requirements

Once you make the decision to implement our dealership management software at your car lot, there are several considerations to make when purchasing computer hardware. We’ll divide our considerations into three categories: Minimum, Recommended and General Requirements. Hardware is increasingly more powerful and less expensive than ever before. Avoid spontaneous buying decisions that may cost you later. Take a moment to review our suggestions below and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions. Press the “Print Hardware Requirements” button for a composite of what to look for when you are shopping.

  1. Printer: Whenever looking at laser printers, consider purchasing a laser that has both automatic duplex (double sided) printing capabilities, as well as the option of adding a second paper tray for legal size paper. Our recommendations are pictured below.
    Note: if purchasing an Okidata dot matrix printer, ensure that it contains a USB port on the rear.

  2. Broadband Internet Access while not required is highly recommended and necessary for some optional features. Protect yourself by installing and subscribing to anti-virus software, and keep it updated!

  3. Backing up your data can be accomplished by several alternative methods. Flash drive, CD writer, external hard drive, or by an automatic remote Internet backup.
