ALBANY, N.Y. – October 6, 2014 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (www.automate.com) announced today that it has become the first dealership management system (DMS) vendor to successfully install a new Infinitinet system, which replaces the legacy Infinitinet AS400 DMS and provides integration to Infiniti’s new Dealer Communications System (DCS). Infiniti dealers using Auto/Mate's DMS now enjoy a seamless communication path with their manufacturer and unparalleled flexibility to adopt third party applications.
Infiniti dealers have relied exclusively on the legacy Infinitinet for their DMS and DCS requirements since 1989. Auto/Mate has blazed the trail to complete development, testing, and installation of the new Infinitinet, which will enable sunset of the legacy Infinitinet architecture.
"We have been working closely with Infiniti to ensure that the migration to the new Infinitinet utilizing the Auto/Mate DMS proceeds smoothly, and additionally that the rollout of their new DCS goes flawlessly," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. "We are excited to be leading the effort to enable Infiniti dealers to migrate to the new Infinitinet and believe that the Auto/Mate DMS in combination with Infiniti’s new DCS provides the benchmark for reliability and functionality at a compelling price point."
Gregory Infiniti in Libertyville, IL was the first dealership to benefit from the integration of Auto/Mate's DMS with Infiniti's new DCS. "Transitioning all our data from our old DMS to a new DMS was a daunting task, but Auto/Mate helped make the process manageable and overall it went more smoothly than I expected it would be," said Greg Mauro, President of Gregory Infiniti.
