Auto/Mate Integrates DMS with AutoAlert® Data Lead Mining Solutions, Turning Big Data Into Big Profits

ALBANY, N.Y. – October 7th, 2013 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems ( announced today that its AMPS Dealership Management System (DMS) is fully integrated with AutoAlert, Inc.'s data lead mining solutions. Auto dealers using both systems can leverage the comprehensive data stored in their DMS like never before, using AutoAlert®'s abilities to identify and communicate opportunities that lead to more sales and higher gross profits.


“Big data is only useful if the data is current and accurate, so it's critical to integrate with both the DMS and CRM,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate.


The Open/Mate integration ensures that all data exchanged between Auto/Mate's DMS and third-party software systems is delivered instantly and securely in both directions. Real-time integration greatly eliminates redundancy and delivers more accurate information, compared with data exchanges performed via batch deliveries.

"The integration with Auto/Mate's award-winning DMS provides more choices to auto dealers who want to turn their "big data" into simple, useable action items that both sales and service can take advantage of," said Boyd Warner, CEO of AutoAlert.


AutoAlert solutions mine customer data in every department and alert dealership staff to opportunities they would never have otherwise known about, including:



- when a customer is in a position to upgrade to a new vehicle for a similar payment

- which buyers can trade-in their current vehicle for a new one for lower monthly payments, due to market incentives and terms

- when a customer's purchase or lease contract is approaching the end

- when a prospect is scheduled for service and when they arrive at your service drive

- when a customer's lease miles are over their contracted amount and help them into a new car, at a similar payment, while avoiding mileage penalties

- which clients are in the position for an extended warranty, even if they didn’t purchase the vehicle from your dealership


Auto manufacturers and third-party software vendors interested in integrating with Open/Mate should contact Auto/Mate at (518) 371–4331.
