Frazer Dealer Management Software

Sept. 27th, 2022

Version 3.5431
  • Hello Kentucky dealers! We have improved our tax calculations for you. Sales tax has its own field and will no longer be combined with the Motor Vehicle Usage tax.

Version 3.5429

  • Do you know how to check to see if your Windows operating system is running in Compatibility Mode for an older version, or even why you would care? For most people, the answer is no, so we have released a detection system that will alert you if it finds this setting and will offer to turn it off for you with a big “Fix it Now!” button.

Frazer Dealer Management Software

Aug. 30th, 2022

Version 3.5423
  • Smiles are free, but great service sometimes requires more investment! The maximum dealer service fee in Washington has been raised from $150 to $200.
  • Important news for those of you who are uploading inventory directly from Frazer to AutoList! They are only going to accept uploads from CarGurus from now on, so please check out their new requirements. Frazer will continue to send the upload if it’s already set up, but at some point in the near future AutoList won’t accept it anymore.
  • In other inventory upload news, we’ve added “Retail Price” to the Carbase.com upload.
  • Today is the day! Windows 7, 8, and 10 Enterprise (10 Pro is fine) no longer have Windows support or updates, so we’ve been notifying you that we want to make sure your customer and business data are safely stored on a secure device. Frazer will no longer operate on computers with these unsupported Windows operating systems. Please give our support team some grace during this time as they assist your fellow dealers with moving their Frazer software to new computers.

For those who use the Frazer accounting system, you will notice that these payments now post to the General Ledger under their own Journal.

Frazer Dealer Management Software

Aug. 9th, 2022

Version 3.5409
  • Minnesota dealers may now raise their minimum late fee from $8.84 to $9.36. Doesn’t that sound weird, “minimum late fee?” It means that you’re charging a percentage of the payment as a late fee, usually 5%, but no less than the minimum late fee amount. Neat, right?

Frazer Dealer Management Software

Jun. 28th, 2022

Version 3.5393
  • The state of Missouri now says, “Show me an E for Admin Fee!” on wholesales on the Electronic Sales Report. The “E” is for exempt, as the report does not take Admin Fee into account for wholesales. Done!
