Featuring an enhanced suite of reporting tools designed to empower data-driven decision-making within each department of a dealership’s business, Procede Software introduces its Excede Analytics data solution.
Designed to extend the capabilities of its Excede dealer management system that has been delivering dealers in the heavy-duty trucking industry unparalleled access to real-time data for almost 20 years, Procede CEO Larry Kettler says Excede Analytics will provide dealers of all different sizes the tools they need to succeed.
“With Excede Analytics, we are rounding out a powerful set of tools that provide dealerships unprecedented visibility into their operational performance and deliver even more power and confidence when making decisions,” he says.
Procede Software says the Excede Analytics toolset represents the next generation of its business intelligence solution and was built on years of market knowledge in collaboration with top industry experts. According to the company, the full Excede Analytics business intelligence solution includes:
- Excede KPIs and Metrics: A suite of powerful and responsive reporting dashboards designed to help dealerships easily measure performance against industry-standard key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics.
- Excede Data Insight: An ad-hoc reporting tool that allows advanced users to build reports and dashboards that can be run, delivered and archived based on a custom schedule.
- Standard Reports: Over 125 comprehensive reports related to each department in a dealership, from Accounting to Parts, Service, Vehicle Sales, Lease-Rental, and more.
- ATD Academy Reports: A custom-designed reporting suite which allows dealers attending the ATD Academy to access and analyze their own real-time data, providing a deeper educational experience.
The comprehensive toolset provides industry-standard metrics that allow dealerships to see areas in which they can increase efficiencies. Users drill down to view supporting detail about each aggregate metric, empowering dealership personnel to quickly and easily find the information that they need. What’s more, Procede adds Excede Analytics offers a high level of security, all while leveraging Excede’s powerful and stable Microsoft SQL Server database.
At the forefront of Excede Analytics are the newly released Excede KPIs and Metrics, which give dealership customers 24/7 access to powerful reporting dashboards that combine financial and operational metrics for real-time, fact-based decision making. Procede says the dynamic features and functionality of Excede KPIs and Metrics are embedded within Excede itself for seamless access during day-to-day operations and are also viewable from any internet-connected device, keeping dealership personnel informed wherever their work takes them.
From a service manager looking to maximize their effective labor rate to an executive wanting to evaluate net margin, the company says Excede KPIs and Metrics help optimize dealership operations and drive performance.
“We’ve worked closely with Procede Software on the development and testing of Excede KPIs and Metrics because we believe that our business has to be more data-driven to remain competitive,” says Dustin Petersen, CFO, Harrison Truck Centers. “Our dealership needs to have access to the right metrics at the right time, and Excede KPIs and Metrics gives us the insight and data integrity we need to make critical business decisions for our dealership.”
