Procede says the latest release of its DMS builds on the company’s strategic vision to deliver continuous process improvement by focusing on user experience and customer workflows that provide efficiency gains in all departments of a dealership running the company’s enterprise software.
The development process for Excede v10.1 followed a strategic approach where Procede Software analyzed and streamlined workflows for important, high-transaction processes across Parts, Service, Accounting and other key areas of the dealership.

“Building from the foundation we set with the release of Excede v10.0 last year, this latest release demonstrates our strategic focus on the user experience,” says Eric Fortin, vice president of product, Procede Software. “We have prioritized continuous improvements through high-transaction workflows and identified enhancements and features that have now made the system even more powerful.”
Additionally, Procede says the development process is augmented by collaboration with Procede Software customers through the Procede Software Insider Program. Started in 2013, the Insider Program utilizes the knowledge and expertise of over 100 subject matter experts (SMEs) that work in dealerships of all sizes, spanning across all commercial vehicle manufacturers.
“With the Insider Program, we’ve created a proactive, engaged role for our customers within our software development process,” says Eric Liddell, the director of product architecture, Procede Software. “Both new and existing customers participate and are instrumental in helping to define and enhance the dealer management system. And Insiders actively participate because they know their involvement directly impacts the dealership’s own success.“
Dealerships throughout the United States and Canada have come to rely on the Excede DMS to create millions of transactions every day in their businesses, Procede says. With Excede v10.1, the company adds the underlying architecture continues to focus on faster performance, improved reliability and increased data security, resulting in the continued confidence and peace of mind that Procede Software customers have come to expect.
“While we advance the Excede platform, we continue to maintain a vigilant focus on system performance and data security,” says Robert Stockfleth,” CTO, Procede Software. “Staying focused on these areas means that we are moving the user experience forward without sacrificing platform performance.”
With the release of v10.1 and moving forward, Procede Software says that its shift to an agile release model will provide faster, more impactful releases in the future. The company says that on average over 85 percent of its customer base actively upgrades to a current version of Excede when released and enjoy immediate benefits from the enhancements and features that are designed to improve the dealership’s performance, the company says.
