What Powersports Dealers Are Saying

Ideal has reduced my workload by 50% compared to the old system. It’s allowed me to get a lot more work done without adding another employee. Todd Gabrielson, Pokegama Lawn and Sport – Grand Rapids, MN
Pokegama Lawn and Sport
Many times over Ideal has paid for itself both in money and time. If we didn't have the system, we would need to hire more people to get everything done. It takes the place of at least two employees. Dave Wanderscheid, Country Cat – Sauk Centre, MN
Country Cat
I have looked into Lightspeed and other companies. Nothing tracks it from department to department like Ideal. Mike Burns, M & M Lawn and Leisure – Rushford, MN
M & M Lawn and Leisure
We love the software. Out of the three software programs we've tried, it's the best one out there. Greg Elyard, TPC Power Center, Inc. – Bloomsburg, PA
Bloomsburg
I was also able to get rid of one of my bookkeepers because of the Ideal's powersports accounting system. It made our accounting so much more efficient that I was able to save on payroll. Jake Starkel, S & S Sports – Ronan, MT
S & S Sports
They're on top of things, and they understand their own system. If I need something changed, they get it done. Butch Hausladen, B&B Sports & RV – Hutchinson, MN
B&B Sports & RV – Hutchinson
The overall system works pretty good. They've done a lot of improvements to it, and they're listening to what the dealers say. Richard Peifer, Boomerang Marine & Powersports Inc. – Melrose, MN
Bloomsburg
The support people I talk to are always really good. They're helpful and have a positive attitude. Ron Vanderheyden, Full Throttle Powersports Inc. – Lena, IL
Full Throttle Powersports Inc.
When people used to call and we had the old system, it was difficult to check on the status of an order. Now any person in the building who answers the phone can check on a work order or parts order and tell them just about anything they need to know in a few seconds. Todd Gabrielson, Pokegama Lawn and Sport - Grand Rapids, MN
Pokegama
Being able to track what your employees are doing on a day-to-day basis, whether it is a mechanic or a salesman, is huge. From a management standpoint, Ideal makes my job so much easier. Mike Burns, M & M Lawn and Leisure - Rushford, MN
M & M Lawn and Leisure
Ideal's motorcycle software has helped us tremendously. We've been able to keep expanding because we knew that with Ideal, we could handle the growth. Jake Starkel, S & S Sports – Ronan, MT
SS Sports
With our previous system, it was difficult for me to have a snapshot of where my business currently stood as far as profitability and inventory control was concerned. With Ideal, it's so easy for me to constantly be aware of the profitability of the store and all the other aspects, especially through the dashboard. It's really easy for me to see where we are at any second of the day. Todd Gabrielson, Pokegama Lawn and Sport - Grand Rapids, MN
