Testimonials

Guy PEPINO Method and Organisation Director - Groupe Maurin
One thing is certain: Planet VO has become an invaluable and essential tool in our UV business. It is now impossible to work without this tool. In almost a single clic, you can advertise all your used cars on the Internet, prevent re-entering of data thanks to the DMS interface, and edit all management documents such as stock lists, labels, warranty transfers, etc.

It is a huge time saver for our teams. As far as I know, there is no such a tool in the market. We considered several other vendors, but they were much less complete than Planet VO.
Planet VO gives an overall picture of the stock of all your sites, and provides updated dashboards easily and rapidly. Moreover, there is a growing number of car manufacturers recommending Planet VO for their used car programmes.
Julien LODIEL Used Car Manager - Nissan Espace 3
We installed Planet VO in 2006. Back then, it had been recommended by a peer, and to my knowledge, there is no real competitors to Planet VO in the market. We mainly use it for sales and distribution, for trade-in or registration operations. Reporting functions are extensively used.

I find the product extremely adapted, particularly in the online web version. It is also great to communicate on the Internet with classified ads.
It is safe to say that Planet VO has become indispensable, as it offered an opportunity to manage our used car business growth, from 700 to 1,300 units per year, without hiring any additional employee. Without the software, I would say we would need to hire 1,5 full-time employees to do the job.
Emmanuel BOURDON Used Car Job Director - Rousseau Automobile
We integrated Planet VO about 10 years ago. Back then, we were looking for a multi-site and multi-brand management tool. Planet VO was the most complete solution for UV management.
Planet VO offers numerous features, and concerns not only the used car trade, but also web processing service with used car advertising, printing of summary sheets that Renault sales advisors prefer to the ones generated through the car manufacturer's DMS. It also covers trade-in forecasts and trader management which represents around 1,500 used cars per year.

Planet VO is also an excellent reporting tool as it allows data extractions to Excel notably stock overview, margin analysis, and valuation: in a single clic, you can valuate all your stock. We also determine the pay and variable grids thanks to Planet VO. Managing the business would be extremely difficult without Planet VO, especially for Renault, as we are equipped with an old generation DMS. Without this tool, I think I would need to hire at least to 2 full-time experienced employees.
