Auto/Mate Adds Rates, Residuals and Rebates to Desk/Mate, Providing Auto Dealers with Instant Incentive Information


e367cf37448045d53de18d9240804268.jpg?t=1ALBANY, N.Y. – December 8th, 2014 – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (http://www.automate.com) announced today the addition of rates, residuals and rebates information to its Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS®) Desk/Mate module. Dealerships that use Auto/Mate's desking solution now have access to real-time lease rates, residuals, manufacturer incentives and other rebate information, enabling F&I managers to quickly and accurately work the best possible deal for their customers.

"It's difficult to keep track of the many OEM incentive programs, expiration dates and to know which rebate or combination of rebates will be allowed or rejected," said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate Dealership Systems. "With Desk/Mate, all you have to do it select the vehicle you're working and all the scenarios are presented in a visually appealing and easy to understand format."

Desk/Mate automatically organizes and optimizes the best combination of incentives that can be stacked to give both F&I managers and customers the best possible scenario. It sorts through the various affinity, military, first-time and college grad programs available, and disallows any incompatible programs from consideration.

Having the latest interest rate data in a desking system can save dealers valuable time and money. If a manufacturer advertised lease rate is .00064 and the contract arrives with .00063, it may be rejected and sent back to the dealership. Desk/Mate is automatically populated with real-time data drawn from AIS Rebates, the industry leader in rebate and incentive management.

Desk/Mate also displays a menu of all financial institutions that a dealer does business with, including payment and gross information for available terms. Auto dealers benefit by seeing all payment options based on the various deal transaction scenarios, using manufacturer rates, bank retail financing, manufacturer supported leases, and more.

The AMPS Desk/Mate module allows sales managers to easily compare multiple retail, lease and balloon payment options; as well as multiple vehicle choices for the customer, displayed side-by-side. Desk/Mate is fast, flexible and easy to use, increasing productivity and profitability in the sales department.
