Changes To The Way Deals Are Pushed To DMS
As we embark down the path of establishing Autovance as a platform and developing an F&I Menu, it became clear we needed to modify the way we handled our DMS integrations. Previously, users would have to mark a quote as Sold, and if re-pushing to the DMS was required the deal would have to be changed to Quote status and then back to Sold.
Users with DMS integration active will now see the Push to DMS button on the right-hand side of the screen. This will prompt you to select which payment to push into the DMS and where the DMS Deal Number will be displayed. You can read the in-depth article on our help centre here.
Updated List of Supported Manufacturers
We’ve been so busy we haven’t posted a recent list of our supported manufacturers and makes, if you don’t see a particular make you would like please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org as we are always looking to expand our offerings.

Ford & Chrysler Window Stickers Now Available in Desk
Users will now be able to instantly access window stickers within Desk. Clicking on the vehicle information panel will expand the vehicle details and expose the Window Sticker button. The Window Sticker button will only be present if a VIN is entered or present in Desk. Please note that this feature is currently only available to Ford & Chrysler dealers.
Full Disclosure Improvements
You may have noticed some changes to the full disclosure. The layout has been improved for readability and now follows a 4-column grid. Gross Profit and Fee/Accessory Cost is now displayed on the Full Disclosure and can be toggled on or off with keyboard shortcut Ctrl+G.
