The Total OEM Reporting Solution
In the modern automotive industry, there is no shortage of data. Each dealership in your network may be recording, managing, and reporting their data differently than other dealerships in your network. NCM core® was created for automotive OEMs to make enterprise-level reporting holistic, quick, user-friendly, and secure.
Since 2003, NCM core has provided OEMs with a single platform to view the critical financial statement data needed to make informed decisions. Our system accepts and processes financial and non-financial information and displays it within customized dashboards and reports that are tailored to your brand and preferences. Your homepage dashboard is host to a multitude of arrangeable widgets–each offering dynamic charts, graphs, and metrics that give you quick and easy access to the insights you need.
Do More with NCM core
The NCM core base package provides you with the ability to quickly gather, sort, and analyze the data you need from your dealer network. It is comprised of multiple modules that work in tandem to provide you with flexibility and simplicity.
- eSubmission: NCM core’s financial statement submission module allows each dealership to upload their data in multiple ways. Our system can accept, process, and cleanse information electronically from multiple DMS systems and in different file formats, including Excel, .xml, and .txt. This flexibility makes submitting data from your dealer network easier than ever. Admins can see who has submitted data, if it was accepted, and can set submission due dates and alerts to controllers and dealers as deadlines approach.
- eComposite: Our single entity reporting module offers comparative reports that quickly highlight the data you need, right from the financial statement of each dealer you evaluate. Available in Excel, .pdf, and HTML formats, these reports can be quickly viewed as needed. eComposite allows users to preschedule their reports, which sends an alert containing a link to the desired report(s) straight to their inbox. Additionally, users can save reports as favorites for easy access.
- eCompare: This module helps you analyze your dealer network by comparing and analyzing any group of dealerships. Whether you require regional comparisons, groups of the same size, a custom group based on numerous parameters, or multiple selections to compare dealers and groups against, eCompare is your essential reporting tool. The unrivaled filtering capability gives you the power to affect change across your dealer network.
- ePlan: NCM core’s forecasting module is an ideal tool for predicting sales, expenses, salaries, and more. This additional module will help you make adjustments and get your forecasting right every time. Admins have the ability to review annual plans, dealer by dealer, to adjust and agree upon realistic and attainable goals. Once the plan is accepted, that dealer’s data is available for reporting in other modules. (Additionally, you can utilize this module to assign and create action plans for specific metrics that help you create accountability and reach your goals.)
- eContact: NCM core’s communication module helps OEMs create, schedule, and document dealer visits and meetings throughout their network. Our calendar view is built on the foundation of user-friendly design, which allows your team to easily create and document meetings, dealer visits, on-site reviews, and critical conversations. Once a meeting is set, users can sync the meeting to the calendar applications they use most frequently (iCal, Google, Outlook, and more). Each meeting also has the capability to hold attachments, agendas, and meeting notes to help ensure all key points are successfully implemented after each conversation. This module provides your team with action items that provide documented tasks to achieve quantitative metrics, and sets reminders that can be easily assigned to individuals to achieve objectives.
