Next Stock Number

You may decide whether or not to let the system automatically calculate the next stock number, and what that stock number will be. The system automatically updates this number as you enter more vehicles into inventory. Top of Page.



Default Lot Fee

A lot fee is used to spread costs associated with dealership overhead equally among all the vehicles on the lot. Lot fee is similar to PAC, but it is added when the vehicle comes on the lot - not when it is sold. Top of Page.



Always Display Vehicle Costs

This allows vehicle costs to be displayed when you open the vehicle information screen without having to click New Display Vehicle Costs. Top of Page.



Default Location Code

If you use location codes with your inventory, you may specify the location code for new inventory vehicles. Top of Page.



Always Leave Floor Plan Open
  Normally, when completing a sale, Frazer will ask you if you'd like to close a floor plan immediately with a prompt. This will keep that prompt from coming up. Top of Page.



Default Trades To Be Added to Inventory.
  When adding a trade-in, this will automatically check the box to add the trade to your inventory once the sale is complete. Top of Page.



Default Vehicles to Display

When you first enter the Vehicles screen, you have the option to see Inventory, Sold, or All vehicles. Top of Page.


Default Vehicle Tab Sorting

This lets you choose which vehicle sorting tab is active when you click Vehicle File Button . Top of Page.



If you are selling a vehicle manufactured in Canada, this option is for you! Top of Page.



Force a Valid VIN

The system will always warn you if the VIN is not 17 characters long. Checking this box will require the VIN to be 17 characters before saving the vehicle. Unchecking this box will allow you to save "invalid" VINs, but  still display a warning.  If you sell older vehicles or motorcycles, be sure to uncheck this box. Top of Page.




If you have a vehicle older then 10 years, you have the option to print "EXEMPT" instead of the vehicle's mileage. Top of Page.



Fill Vehicle Sales Features

This options allows sales features in the VIN to populate in the vehicle file. These features can be included with uploads and on window stickers. Top of Page.



Enable VIN Check for Sirius XM

This option is checked by default. If you don't use the SiriusXM integration, it can be unchecked to stop Frazer from checking vehicle VINs automatically. Top of Page.



Mileage Instead of Tag

Check this box if you want to see vehicle mileage displayed on the Vehicle screen. Top of Page.



Display Retail Price

Check this box if, on the Vehicle screen, you want to see the selling price of the vehicle rather than its number of days in inventory. Top of Page.



Add Repo Costs to Inventory Value

If you write-off a vehicle and add it back into inventory, this option will add your cost of repossession as an added cost on the inventoried vehicle. Top of Page.



Upload New Vehicles

If you want all the vehicles you add to inventory to be immediately included in vehicle uploads, check this box. Top of Page.




Include Buyer's Fee in Floor Plan Amount

Checking this will automatically include Buyer's Fees in Floor Plan Amounts. Check it if you prefer to Floor Plan your Buyer's Fees as well as the Vehicle Price. Top of Page.
