Reynolds Launches Managed Network Solution for the POWER DMS

The Reynolds Private Managed Network Prioritizes DMS Traffic to Help Keep Business Applications Running at Peak Performance in the Dealership

DAYTON, Ohio – July 11, 2011 – The Reynolds and Reynolds Company today announced the availability of the Reynolds Private Managed (RPM) Network for dealerships using the Reynolds POWER dealership management system (DMS). The RPM Network is a fully managed, private Wide Area Network (WAN) developed specifically for automotive retailers.

“In today’s highly digital environment, so much of a dealer’s business depends on the ability to seamlessly communicate over the Internet, between dealership stores, and with the OEM,” said Jon Strawsburg, vice president of Product Planning for Reynolds. “In response, we’ve developed the RPM Network to meet the specific and complex networking needs of automotive retailers. The RPM Network delivers the reliability, performance, security, and flexibility dealers need to run their business efficiently and effectively.”

The RPM Network helps automotive retailers:

 

  • Keep business applications running at peak performance through a network designed to prioritize DMS traffic.
  • Reduce risk with a centralized firewall and layered security.
  • Eliminate network bottlenecks by monitoring traffic with an advanced reporting tool.
  • Increase employee productivity by monitoring employee Internet usage.

The RPM Network is scalable to meet the needs of all dealers – from a single point store to large dealer groups with stores spread nationwide.

Strawsburg concluded: “This proven network solution has been delivering results for our ERA® DMS customers for a number of years. We are pleased to now extend these networking capabilities to our POWER DMS customers.”

The RPM Network is available for both POWER in-house and POWER ASP (hosted DMS server) customers.
