Auto/Mate Welcomes New National Sales Manager
Clifton Park, N.Y – January 24, 2011 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (www.automate.com), ranked the highest for overall customer satisfaction in the last three combined NADA surveys, today announced the addition of Alan Heaton to their team as National Sales Manager. Heaton brings to Auto/Mate twenty years of high level sales and marketing experience with a career focus in automotive technology, and in his new position will oversee the continued expansion of the company’s national sales force.
“Alan understands the needs of dealers and the daily pressure they’re under to maximize profits in a tough environment,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “His proven track record in sales and customer relations is a great addition here as we look forward to another banner year.”
Auto/Mate has achieved an unprecedented average growth rate of 25% in the last five years as automotive dealers have switched from high-cost, legacy dealership management systems (DMS) to streamlined, efficient solutions that can reduce dealership technology costs as much as 50 – 75%.
“I’ve admired Auto/Mate’s innovative DMS solution for several years,” said Heaton. “I look forward to being part of a company that listens and responds to its customers, and I’m excited to manage such a dedicated sales team.”
Auto/Mate’s Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS) is an easy-to-use, comprehensive DMS with more than 20 integrated modules to help dealers manage their business. It supports an unlimited number of users, workstations and printers, and can be implemented in any size dealership.
