Auto/Mate Announces Integration with Dealer-FX, Boosting Dealer Service Retention Capabilities

ALBANY, N.Y. – August 26th 2013 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (http://www.automate.com) announced today that its AMPS Dealership Management System (DMS) is fully integrated with Dealer-FX’s automotive retail marketing and software solutions. Auto dealerships using AMPS dealership management system (DMS) and Dealer-FX’s service customer retention solutions will now benefit from real-time data exchange between the two systems.

 

“One of the key components to an effective customer retention marketing program is to have all the customer information, history and vehicle history updated instantly and accurately across the DMS and customer retention systems,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate.

 

Dealer-FX is the most recent vendor to integrate with AMPS as part of Auto/Mate’s Open/Mate program. The open integration program ensures that all data delivered between the DMS and third-party software programs is instant and secure. Real-time integration eliminates redundancy and ensures accurate information for better marketing capabilities, compared with data exchanges performed via batch deliveries. Low-cost, open integration programs benefit auto dealers by improving internal productivity and increasing vendor choices, leading to more competition and lower prices.

 

“Dealers using our solutions and Auto/Mate’s DMS will be able to get more out of each system, as technological barriers are eliminated and the focus can be on improving programs and processes without having to worry whether the data is accurate,” said Sandor Segal, Director of Business Development with Dealer-FX.

 

Dealer-FX offers auto dealers service drive technology and tools that streamline the sales to service handoff, boost online scheduling, enable consistent electronic walkaround and inspections, and more. Its customer retention programs increase loyalty and integrate with Dealer-FX’s comprehensive suite of social media marketing, lead generation and conversion tools, as well as their marketing and brand effectiveness programs.

 

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