Auto/Mate and DealerSocket Integrate DMS and CRM Solutions, Improving Sales Efficiency for Auto Dealers

ALBANY, N.Y. – March 3rd, 2014 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (http://www.automate.com) announced today that DealerSocket, a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software to auto retailers, has completed integration with Auto/Mate's dealership management system (DMS). Dealers using both Auto/Mate and DealerSocket solutions will benefit from improved sales efficiency with real-time, bi-directional updates of customer, vehicle and deal information in both systems.

 

“Both Auto/Mate and DealerSocket use an open API to integrate with other vendors, keeping integration costs low and providing dealers with more choices," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. "I've always believed that dealers should be able to choose any third-party solution without integration being a factor in that decision."

 

With integrated systems, prospect information entered into DealerSocket's CRM is instantly and securely updated in Auto/Mate’s DMS, while any changes made in the DMS are immediately updated in the CRM. Real-time integration ensures accurate information in both systems, compared to data exchanges performed via batch deliveries.

 

“We’re happy to be able to provide our customers with another quality choice when it comes to dealership management system (DMS) vendors," said Nathan Usher, Director of Product Management with DealerSocket.

 

DealerSocket's innovative CRM and lead-management solutions are designed to increase revenue from sales and service, improve customer satisfaction index (CSI) and boost the dealership’s gross profit. At NADA 2014 both Auto/Mate and DealerSocket were honored with “Highest Rated" dealer satisfaction awards, determined by the thousands of auto dealers who are part of the DrivingSales.com community. Auto/Mate received the “Highest Rated DMS of 2013” award; while DealerSocket received the "Highest Rated Sales CRM of 2013" and the "Top Rated ILM of 2013" awards.

 

Auto/Mate provides dealers with robust, user-friendly software along with the best customer service in the industry. Auto/Mate's DMS is the ideal solution for single and group franchise dealerships. For more information call Auto/Mate at 877-340-2677.
