Six-time PGA TOUR winner Hunter Mahan and Autosoft kick off 2014-15 season with partnership
WEST MIDDLESEX, PA – Oct. 16, 2014: PGA TOUR star Hunter Mahan and Autosoft, Inc., a leading software provider to automotive retailers, are proud to announce a new partnership to kick off the 2014/2015 season. This is Autosoft’s first sponsorship of a professional athlete and allows the company to feature Mahan’s name, likeness and image in all marketing and advertising. Mahan will display Autosoft’s logo on his left collar and make an in-person appearance at the NADA Convention and Expo (www.nada.org) in January, 2015 in San Francisco, California.
“Autosoft is very proud to team up with such an accomplished athlete as Hunter. He shares our values, and will appeal to our customers with his winning drive, passion for cars, and accomplished golf career” says Bryce Veon, Autosoft’s president and CEO.
Hunter Mahan is one of the elite players on the PGA TOUR, amassing six career victories and finishing the 2014 season sixth in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. “I’m excited to have Autosoft as a partner because we share the same winning spirit and commitment to being the best in our respective fields. I’ll also be closer to an industry that I love. One of my passions has always been cars and I look forward to being part of a team that serves dealers.”
Autosoft’s brand promise to dealers is “You Drive”, providing more freedom of choice and flexibility than they would experience with other dealership management system providers. “We give dealers the freedom to run their business in a way that’s best for them. With Autosoft’s FLEX DMS and FLEX Connect program, they can easily integrate software into our dealership management system from the providers with which they choose to do business. They have the flexibility to choose from self-managed or cloud-hosted applications that can be accessed from any device. And, Autosoft offers month-to-month terms and conditions so dealers aren’t locked in to long-term contracts. Hunter’s drive on and off the golf course makes him a winning partner as we build our brand” says Mark Hellbusch, Autosoft’s executive vice president and CTO.
