incadea.dms, the comprehensive, next-generation global dealer management solution, designed to enable car dealerships to achieve high performance, was installed in Toyota Caucasus dealerships during the course of last year. incadea.dms was selected via a tender process, as it provides the opportunity for optimizing business processes and improving the planning of company activities. Existing Group expertise in successful implementation of projects in the CIS region played a role in this choice.

Gap Fit Analysis, interviews with key end users and a concrete business requirements list – provided incadea the opportunity to offer a customized integrated solution
