CLIFTON PARK, NY (May 11, 2009) – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (www.automate.com) announced today a 14% growth in new auto dealer clients over the past 12 months. The increase reflects current market conditions that have been prompting many dealers to look for cost-effective alternatives to their expensive, legacy dealership management systems (DMS).
“Dealers are worried about the future and looking for ways to cut costs,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “Our Automotive Management Productivity Suite can save dealers up to 75% on their DMS expenses without compromising on features, service and support.”
Auto/Mate’s Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS) is a robust DMS with over 20 integrated modules to suit any size dealership. Dealers get all of the tools they need to effectively and efficiently manage store operations, including Sales, F&I, Fixed Operations, Accounting, CRM, and Fleet Sales.
AMPS can be purchased and paid for on a month-to-month basis, eliminating the need for long-term contracts that often contain hidden charges, excessive third party DMS integration expenses and mandatory upgrade fees. AMPS is offered as both an in-house and ASP solution.
Auto/Mate has 75 employees and a customer base of over 500 dealerships nationwide. Many Auto/Mate clients have been using the system since it was first marketed and sold by Wang Laboratories in the 1970’s.
“When we switched from a legacy DMS vendor to Auto/Mate last year, our system expenses dropped from $8,500 to $1,500 a month,” said Matt Bell, owner of Greg Bell Chevrolet Cadillac of Michigan. “We have all of the features we need to manage our dealership, and at a fraction of the cost of our previous vendor.”
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.
Auto/Mate’s employees have more than 300 years of combined experience working in auto dealerships – the foundation of its “Designed by Car People, for Car People” slogan.
