Auto/Mate Releases Deal Closeout for Desking Module

New Feature in Desk/Mate™ Designed to Streamline Auto Dealerships' Sales Process & Improve Their Workflow

Albany, NY – May 14, 2018​ – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems recently released Deal Closeout, a new feature in the Desk/Mate™ Module of its dealership management system (DMS). Desk/Mate users can now work and close deals all in one module, streamlining the sales process and improving the workflow of sales managers, F&I managers and office clerks.

"In most dealership management systems, the process of working a deal involves jumping around several different screens or programs. Deal Closeout simplifies that process so it can be performed all in one place, saving employees a significant amount of time," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate Dealership Systems.

The release of Deal Closeout will sunset Auto/Mate’s F&I Billing Module, a separate application in which F&I managers manually closed deals and posted them to accounting. Eliminating this extra step saves valuable minutes per deal and expedites the posting of deals to accounting.

Deal Closeout comes equipped with enhanced security permissions that provide system administrators more control over which employees can access and/or make changes to a sold or closed deal. An audit log keeps records of which employees closed deals and when.

Deal Closeout is available to all new customers at no additional cost. The new feature is currently being rolled out to Auto/Mate's existing customers.
