VIMAboard is a product and service of HandMade Software, 8085 S. Chester St.,
Centennial, Colorado 80112. HandMade is a founding partner company in S3R Unlimited
Services Organization, a consortium with a strong financial base dedicated to the
success of its constituent companies and the complete satisfaction of their clients.
The VIMAboard system was conceived when the owners of Norfolk (Nebraska) GM Auto
Center undertook an extensive remodel of the facility. Not wishing to mar the
nice new walls of the updated dealership by re-hanging the multiple whiteboards
and their hundreds of attached card-holders that had been used for years to track
inventory and sales, and hoping that a replacement system could reduce the daily
and weekly labor that was involved in maintaining its manual system, Norfolk
commissioned the Denver-area software provider HandMade Software to create the
software that became VIMAboard.
HandMade Software consulted on-site and off to design and develop a system that
the dealership's staff would find familiar, intuitive, and easy-to-use, and that
would provide even more insight into the management of vehicle inventory than the
manual system had offered. In the summer of 2012, HandMade Software installed
the result of this effort on Norfolk GM's local Intranet, where it was referred
to initially as "BigBoard" or "eBoard". The service swiftly displaced the
dealership's manual methods, and has been in use by the sales and management
staff ever since.
Since that initial install, VIMAboard has been constantly updated and improved
according to feedback and suggestions from its users. With its migration to a
software-as-a-service Website here at www.vimaboard.com, the solution is able
to serve any number of dealerships.
