Auto/Mate Completes DMS Integration with Subaru of America

 

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – December 12, 2011 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (http://www.automate.com) announced today that it has completed integration of its dealership management system, Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS), with Subaru of America, Inc.’s (SoA) dealer communications system. Subaru dealers using AMPS can now communicate seamlessly with SoA.

 “Now Subaru dealers have more options for low-cost, comprehensive dealership management systems than ever before,” said Mike Esposito, CEO and President of Auto/Mate. “Having a fully integrated solution saves dealers both time and money as it speeds up daily processes and eliminates loss of data and other inefficiencies.”

The integration of AMPS with SoA was a deciding factor for Scott Bement, owner of St. Cloud Subaru in Minnesota. “As a young, energetic company we wanted to a build a system from the ground up, and Auto/Mate’s integration with Subaru demonstrates they are growing and moving forward in a way that matches up with our needs,” said Bement. “Having an integrated system is important because it cuts out a lot of work associated with manual data entry.”

AMPS is now integrated with SoA’s dealer communication system in the following key areas:

Fixed Ops: parts order and parts return; users can upload order and return files to SoA on demand.

F&I/Sales: status updates (i.e. deal sold) trigger a disposition of prospect change to Customer/Mate, then to SoA.

Accounting: users can upload financial statement files to SoA and can also download warranty payment data files from SoA.

In 2010, Auto/Mate was certified by SoA as a vendor partner for the automaker’s Integrated Lead Management Program, allowing Subaru Web leads to be delivered to dealers via Auto/Mate’s CRM module, Customer/Mate.

Additionally, AMPS now has interfaces that can connect the DMS with Subaru New England. Dealers can send and receive financial statements, F&I deals, parts orders and vehicle inventory via batch transmissions.

AMPS is an easy-to-use comprehensive dealership management system (DMS) with over 20 integrated modules to help dealers more efficiently and effectively manage their business. It supports an unlimited number of users, workstations and printers, and can be implemented in any size dealership.
