Our software was developed to meet the needs of the contract furniture industry
and to make business simple and more efficient. Using cutting edge technology, we
developed a flexible and easy to use business tool. Dealer Choice manages every
aspect of your dealership from start to finish. This software will revolutionize the way
your company does business. We urge you to discover the many features and benefits
unique to our application.
Our software touches every detail and intuitively guides you through the project cycle.
Working the software interface from left to right, the user is taken step by step through
the proposal process. Everything in the software is tied to a proposal making it easy
to reference any related information. Dealer Choice naturally guides the project along,
encouraging and facilitating communication through all steps of the sales process
including: managing design, placing orders, receiving acknowledgements, incorporating
project management, punch lists, generating invoices, and tracking payables and
Tailor your site’s user permissions to allow personnel access to only the information that
pertains to them. This keeps the user interface clear of non-accessible functions.
Automated Customer and Vendor Discounting
Our discounting system can automatically apply discounts to proposals. Standard and
volume discounts are entered into the discount database and then can be applied to
the line items automatically when creating a proposal. Each discount entry requires
an expiration date so that expired discounts cannot be used. Other rules, such as
freight fees, call before delivery charges and fuel surcharges, can be customized to
automatically apply as well. This eliminates discounting errors and allows dealerships to
capture costs that otherwise may be forgotten or ignored.
Flexible and Customized Reporting
Build, save and even share a variety of reports based on the needs of each department.
At your fingertips, you can view in real-time the information that is your dealership.
Project Status Report
The project status report is automatically populated when purchase orders are created.
It is updated automatically as purchase orders are created and acknowledgement data
is entered. This feature allows the progress of a project to be easily tracked.
Proposal File Vault
The file vault is a location where all proposal-related documents, such as drawings, key
charts and bills of material can be stored. Documents can be uploaded, downloaded or
deleted. Files in the file vault can also be included as attachments to email and faxes
sent from Dealer Choice.
Integrated email and fax capabilities give you the option to send proposals, invoices, or
purchase orders without having to leave your desk.
Proposal Finalization Process
Dealer Choice coined the term “proposal finalization”, which refers to an electronic
proofreading step of the proposal process. The proposal is scanned for incomplete
specifications, discounting discrepancies and missing shipping and installation
addresses. It also applies tiered/volume discounting, freight fees, small order and call
before delivery charges.
This process also allows you to combine open market and direct bill orders within the
A proposal cannot be emailed, printed or faxed until undergoing a last check via the
finalization process. This ensures that each proposal is clean and accurate before it is
placed in the hands of your customers.

Design work and billable hours can be tracked throughout the project allowing your
dealership to maximize the profitability potential of your design department.

within the originating proposal.
