CLIFTON PARK, NY (May 23, 2011) – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (www.automate.com) announced today that it has completed full integration of its dealership management system, Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS), with the Toyota DMS Integration Program. Toyota dealerships using AMPS can now communicate seamlessly with Toyota Motors Sales, USA, Inc. (TMS) through integration points in all departments, including sales, F&I and accounting. The Lexus interfaces have also been successfully developed and tested with TMS.
“The trend by auto manufacturers to incorporate open standards into their systems greatly benefits dealerships,” said Mike Esposito, President and CEO of Auto/Mate. “Not only does it eliminate the high costs that legacy DMS vendors traditionally charge for custom development; it allows all DMS vendors to potentially provide seamless integration with manufacturers, thereby increasing competition and choices in the market, which further reduces costs for dealerships.”
The technology used in Toyota’s Dealer Daily communications system is based on standards set by the Standards for Technology in Automotive Retail (STAR), an organization that promotes the use of non-proprietary technology.
In February Auto/Mate announced a partial integration of AMPS with 13 interfaces; now every module in AMPS is able to connect in real-time with TMS via a web-based portal. The final integration approval was granted after Auto/Mate’s participation for more than a year in the Toyota Dealer Daily Open Access Project (DDOA). The latest updates to AMPS include:
Auto/Mate’s AMPS is a robust, easy-to-use dealership management system with more than 20 integrated modules to help dealers manage their business. It supports an unlimited number of users, workstations and printers, and can be implemented in any size dealership.
Auto/Mate Dealership Systems is a leading provider of dealership management system (DMS) software to retail automotive dealerships. Its Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS) is a user-friendly, feature-rich dealership management software in use by more than 900 auto dealers nationwide. Auto/Mate offers the best customer service in the industry; the company received top satisfaction rankings in NADA’s most recent DMS provider survey.
