Both Black Book and NADA Used Car Guide require individual licenses for each user of the book providers in the Autosoft Inventory Management Mobile app, even if your dealership has a license to use the book providers in Autosoft's Bookout and Inventory Management applications within the desktop version of Autosoft DMS. So Autosoft's Marketplace now allows you to make in-app purchases of and immediately activate the Black Book and NADA Used Car Guide book providers for selected users in the Autosoft Inventory Management Mobile app.
|Note: Users without the necessary roles or permissions to make purchases through the Marketplace tool can make requests for Autosoft solutions. You can then review your purchase history and any internal requests made by other users. (See the Help Center for more information on Autosoft's Marketplace.)|
