How AutoRaptor’s unique buy here pay here software helps independent dealerships prosper
When Howard Leavitt, founder of AutoRaptor was a dealership manager, he faced several challenges finding the right CRM tools to suit an independent dealer’s needs. In his 25-year career, a number of software packages emerged, but few accommodated the unique needs of buy here pay here (BHPH) and pre-owned dealerships.
Leavitt was frustrated by the existing sales solutions that third-party CRM applications offered. The big box software packages offered more than small dealers needed at larger price points, and the smaller ones didn’t cater to buy here pay here dealerships. They were so clumsy, complex, and intimidating that few salespeople mastered them. And not only were they over-the-top expensive, they were designed to collect data—not to sell cars.
Determined to find a better, faster way to work, Leavitt set out to design a system that would combine the best of both worlds: automated customer communication and sales accountability. Adapting to the change the internet brought to the automotive space he opted to produce a web-based buy here pay here software solution versus the traditional hardware.
The result? AutoRaptor — a revolutionary, new CRM created to serve independent and BHPH automotive dealers exclusively. The guiding principle was and is to build a powerful and cost-effective buy here pay here software application that gets used.
