Robin Luscombe is a Yorkshireman and rightly proud of it. He is a straight talker who knows good value when he sees it. So he’s just the person to listen to when it comes to recommending a DMS. No spin, no flim flam, no hidden agendas. Robin owns and runs Luscombe Motors in Leeds with a very hands-on attitude. He’s a man who puts trust, honesty and loyalty at the heart of his business, so you know when he recommends Navigator he means it.
Since opening Luscombe Motors in Leeds in 2013, Robin and his team have won numerous awards for their joint Suzuki and Mitsubishi business.
As he says in this video, Robin runs a people business and a major part of his decision to invest in Navigator was that it enables him and his team to work in exactly the way that suits them. Other DMSs need the user to change their way of working to suit the system.
Throughout this video you’ll see that the entire Luscombe team talks straight about why Navigator is the right DMS.
In the words of finance director, David Taylor, “We’re not the typical motor dealer and the system had to match our requirements for an integrated system.”
David and he praises Navigator for the enhanced, real-time financial control it has delivered: “We used to spend 15 days doing the accounts, nowt it takes just 6-8 days.” So better information, faster.
Luscombe Motors is already amongst the Top 10 Mitsubishi Dealers in the country and is constantly ranked very highly in customer satisfaction polls. Marketing and customer relations manager Jane Whyman says Navigator DMS plays a big part in that.
Jane runs daily reports from Navigator and it has become central to her marketing of the business. As she says, “following up the database is the most important part of the business” and we can’t argue with that.
Luscombe Motors’ Suzuki parts department is the No. 1 in the UK dealer network and its Mitsubishi parts business is approaching that status. Group parts manager Aziz Ahmed knows more than most the importance of having a DMS that is thorough, efficient and –importantly – simple to use. “Navigator is so easy to learn,” says Aziz, “and simple to use.” These are really important factors when you realise that Aziz has a large and busy team, each of them using Navigator day in, day out.
Perhaps the most telling comment in the entire video is from Robin: “Good value is very important and I won’t waste a penny.” As good a reason as any to switch to Navigator, a DMS that delivers on value.
As Robin Luscombe says: “It works.”
