Turning Your Data into Real Sales: A Quick Guide
Using Inventory Management software for Powersports to drive sales and generate leads
Businesses have been using sales-generating, and inventory management software for a while now. Many CRM softwares, aka “Customer Relationship Management” claim they can be used to manage inventory. CXM software, also known as “Customer Experience Management” is used to track data on customers to help businesses interact with their customers with a personal touch.
What's the Difference...Really?
CRM comes after the experience. CXM works hard to anticipate it!
In other words, CRM focuses on facilitating your relationship with customers while CXM works through the customer's viewpoint to assess the quality of their experience. A CRM platform is an important investment since it keeps track of crucial data for your inbound marketing and sales efforts and analyzing customer behavior.
The PSX CXMAi platform includes a CRM!
Within a proprietary platform built exclusively with Powersports dealerships in mind, our core products include: CRM, Inventory Management, Websites, and Marketing Automation.
Although there exists DMS software (dealer management software) as an excellent way to organize stock, most DMS software is either too specialized to offer all of the features a business requires, or too generalized to cater specifically to the needs of a Powersports business.
Retail industries across the board have been using these tools for years now, and the automotive, Powersports, and motorsports industries are no exceptions.
Efficiency is critical in the Powersports business. The speed and accuracy at which your sales team operates is the key factor in determining how many deals you can close in a day. Moreover, the software offers us an added advantage that humans aren’t capable of providing: it can analyze large amounts of data and produce useful conclusions!
By using a fully-integrated, all-in-one software that is specific to the Powersports industry, you will be able to increase your efficiency, analyze your data, manage your inventory, boost your marketing, generate more leads, and close more deals! That may sound complicated, but the process is quite easy.
These steps will describe your journey as you integrate PSXDigital into your business.

What are Powersports customers interested in?
You’ll be able to see which products your customers love the most, and your dedicated sales team will be able to keep track of an individual customer’s wants and needs. Did a customer express interest in a pre-owned motorcycle? Maybe they were looking to buy a brand new boat, but only if it had a flying-bridge! Don’t ask again next time. Know!
Have they done business with you before?
Don’t treat your loyal, returning customer like a stranger! Reward brand loyalty with a personal touch. Ask them if they were satisfied with the smooth operation and sheer power of the Polaris Ranger they purchased a year ago! A little bit of personalization goes a long way.
Know even more about your customers!
Keep track of data from your conversations. Ask how the kids are doing! Send your customers exclusive offers with a signed card on their birthday!
