Saturn V Software Systems is headquartered in a suburb of Atlanta, GA with a research and development office in Chattanooga, TN. This location allows us to serve one of the largest retail automotive markets locally and provides easy national access to our customers and partners through Hartsfield International Airport, the world’s busiest airport.
Saturn V Software has been serving dealerships since 1996 with revenue and operational enhancing software which enable a dealership to work smarter, faster and more profitable than ever before. Our products were developed with the operational procedures of a dealership as the top priority.
Some of our competition has put out very comprehensive software packages that require intensive training and a change in philosophy in order to utilize them to the maximum. We, on the other hand, come from inside the dealership and have built the functionality to fit the way you do business. This includes the deal process from ‘up’ to delivery to post sale follow-up. Our software is the most intuitive and we continue to add functionality as our customers request it. This is what sets us apart. We listen to the needs of our customers and that has translated into the best software available for retail automotive dealerships. The bottom line is, we don’t tell you how to do business with our software, we let you tell us how our software needs to do business for you!
Saturn V Software was born in 1996 when Johnny Wilson was a manager at a franchise dealership. He knew there was an easier way of selecting and structuring sub-prime credit deals and developed a basic Excel spreadsheet to assist in lender selection. As anyone experienced in sub-prime knows, lender selection and credit packaging is only the first step in the process. So as Johnny identified more and more areas of improvement he set out to develop software to assist in his daily activities. This personal productivity package became so successful word got around and Johnny was in high demand at other dealerships facing the same confusion. So, instead of helping just one dealership, he founded Saturn V Software to help all dealerships.
After the initial sub-prime credit qualification came integration with inventory for complete deal structuring. In 1997 we added the book value integration for automatic updating and the inventory control reports. Since 1998, additional functionality has been non stop. Complete contract and form printing, customer follow up letters, lease residuals and deal selection, complete accounting reports, historical trend analysis and reporting and effectiveness of sales team, lenders and advertising sources are some of the additional features. What started as a solution to one problem has now turned out to be the most complete customer, inventory and financial software package for front end dealership management available.
In just the last year alone, we have added the Internet module which synchronizes your showroom and business office with your web site. So many dealers are struggling with how to use the Internet to increase their showroom traffic and we have once again responded to the request. With Master Web, inventory is updated with one click (and never outdated), sale prices are always updated, consumers can search by loan or lease payment range and sub-prime credit consumers can pre-qualify themselves and print a list of cars matching their budget and situation. This has made a tremendous, positive, impact on the way dealerships can serve the multi-channel consumer and has again increased our ability to deliver to the dealership.
Future enhancements include customer follow up and loyalty campaigns, synchronization of inventory with third-party marketplaces and electronic credit and lending package submission. We continue to increase our productivity to meet the ever changing demands of our customers and their consumers.
