Inventory System

Our inventory system can be customized to meet your business and marketing needs!

Inventory Features

Truck Type –  You decide which truck types to include in your inventory.  The truck types can be from the common to the obscure, even made up.  Our truck types can even be a group type, i.e. Plumber’s Trucks, Oil Field Trucks, …. Plus the truck types can change to support your changing and evolving market.  Of course many upfit trucks can fit into more than one category, so each truck can be included in multiple truck type categories.

Quick Quote Routine – Do you find yourself, and your salespeople, spending too much time just creating quotes?  If so, our Quick Quote routine is for you.  Our quote system can create and email a quote in seconds.  Not only will it save you time, it will also help insure there are no misunderstandings in exactly what truck you are quoting.  The quote is built from our inventory system and will include pictures and description for the truck being quoted.

Selective Upfit Inventory Augmentor –  This routine adds upfit trucks to your commercial inventory.  It is unique in several ways.  First, we only augment truck types that you don’t have any of in your inventory.  Second, we only include upfits that have real images.  Third, we limit the number of upfits for each category to three trucks.  Finally, we only include upfit trucks that have been in the dealership’s inventory for at least 90 days.  

Inventory Management Tools – You can’t manage what you don’t know.
Aging Report – Our system can age your commercial inventory. So you are aware of the exact age of all of your trucks.
Valuation Report – Our system can report on your total investment for active trucks in the inventory. It can even
summarize your investment by truck type.
General Reporting – Our inventory system provides some of the most in-depth reports available.

Sales History Tracking / CRM – This routine is one of our most popular and valuable among our clients.  Like most sales trackers, it captures the purchase transaction of your sales, but unlike most, ours captures the type of truck.  Our report can be sorted, by data range and/or truck type.  Our dealers find great value in knowing what type of truck a business purchased in the past. 

In-Transit Inventory – We offer In-Transit vehicles for your inventory.  An In-Transit vehicle includes an In-Transit label and can include ETA information.  Both the In-Transit label and ETA message will automatically be removed when the vehicle is moved to the active inventory.

Automatic Advertising Updates – Our system can automatically update many of the national and regional websites that advertised work trucks.  For Commercial Truck Trader not only can be update their inventory automatically,  we can include each truck in up to three truck type categories.  We even offer a solution for Truck Paper, even though they do not  allow automatic updating.

Analyzing Website Performance – Google Analytics offers an excellent analysis of your website’s traffic and performance.  We can incorporate Google Analytics into the Work Truck Pros’ supplied website and inventory system.  You then will have direct access to your website’s actual results.

Flexible Pricing Options – A few years ago a commercial dealer could show only MSRP and have success, but things have changed.  Today if you want to effectively compete you need to show MSRP and the Sell Price. Our inventory system gives you the ability to show these and more.   We also offer a  Special Price option.  The Special Price is a price with an expiration date.    The expiration date will be shown as part of the truck’s information, to facilitate action on the part of the buyer.   Plus on the expiration date the Special price is removed and original pricing is shown again.

Custom Features and Search Options – Our system offers the common vehicle search options, but you can also include search options that you need .  These might include searches for PTO, gaseous prep, or a certain Cab to Axle measurement.

Search Option Link Builder – This feature lets you create a shortcut that  represents the values in the six main search options; Category, Make, Model, Fuel, Drive and Cab.  Once you have the search options set to shows the relevant set of vehicles. 

Options for our Inventory System

Archive Inventory – The Archive is an inventory of your sold upfit trucks. Our dealers find many uses for this inventory.  Perhaps the most valuable use is achieved when  paired with our Sales History Tracker.  When viewing the Sales History, all trucks in the Archive will have an active link for viewing from that report.  

Multi-Site Systems – If your dealership group has multiple commercial departments, our Multi Site System may be for you.  It can combine the inventories of all your dealerships into a single inventory, like the national advertising sites.  There are many advantages to this option and many ways to display the combined inventory.  We will help you find the right one for your group.
