Top Line Dealer Integrates Software with Keller Marine & RV

Thu Sep 8, 2016

Keller Marine & RV has been a leader in the RV business to business web site development since 1999. Top Line Dealer Management Solutions has been building state of the art Dealer Management Software since 1992.

In 2007, the company entered the RV Dealer Software development business. Top Line is a completely integrated dealer management system that allows dealers to manage their inventory, service labor and the parts. Keller Marine & RV is a full line RV and Marine parts and accessories distributor with some awesome technology tools for parts lookup and ordering. It only made sense that two technology visionaries would come together to build a state-of-the-art ordering and logistics platform.

“We at Keller Marine & RV are excited to team with a Dealer Management Software company that is built on a robust platform, and yet is open enough to integrate with industry suppliers," Top Line Sales Manager Michael Keller says. "Unlike some other DMS vendors we have spoken with, Top Line is really out to make their dealer customer’s stronger. With them it is about what is best for the dealer, not about what makes Top Line the most money. Dealers using Top Line Software have been able to measure productivity and leverage those measurements to change their business processes and increase profits.”

Steve Fretz, owner of Fretz RV located in Souderton, Pennsylvania, is a Keller Presidents Club dealer and Top Line user.

“The combination of Keller Marine & RV and Top Line Software is hard to beat," Fretz says. "It allows my parts people to instantly determine parts availability, compare prices with other vendors, and with one click place the item on order. Combine this software with Keller Marine & RV’s ability to ship my orders complete and correctly without damage and you have an incredible parts logistics system. I could not be happier with both of these companies.”
