    Good posting
    For DBM:
    DBM is ADD-On
    In Dealer business management VMS and MRS also used.
    Customers/partners have to purchase MRS seperately

    I have a feeling, I would have read this here before. And in fact, the date of the blog is 8th of August, while there is a comment on the 15th of July, looks really strange… 🙂
    On the other hand I would not like to hurt the author, but it is just some marketing stuff, instead of real information…

      The blog was moved back to draft as there was a piece of information that was incorrect and once clarification was made it was re-published. This is a first of a lot more information around this topic coming into the community however whenever there is a new topic it’s always hard to gauge where to start until you know the interest level of the community in it.
