CLIFTON PARK, NY (August 19, 2009) – Auto/Mate Dealership Systems (www.automate.com) today announced a new integration relationship with Experian Automotive to provide the company’s AutoCheck® vehicle reports to Auto/Mate’s dealer clients using AutoCheck FreeLinkSM technology. Dealers will be able to quickly and easily get AutoCheck reports for prospective customers using Auto/Mate’s popular, low-cost Automotive Management Productivity Suite (AMPS).
“AutoCheck gives consumers the information they need to understand important aspects of a used vehicle’s history,” said Mike Esposito, president and CEO of Auto/Mate. “These unique, detailed reports help increase sales by giving consumers the confidence to make purchasing decisions.”
AutoCheck is the industry’s first and only vehicle history report to feature a vehicle history score: the AutoCheck Score. The AutoCheck Score distills large amounts of vehicle information into a simple, numeric score listed as a number from one to 100. This process capitalizes on Experian’s world-class expertise in collecting, interpreting, analyzing and packaging information in a way that people can easily understand and use.
The AutoCheck Score accurately summarizes the individual items and events in a vehicle’s history in a way that consumers can readily understand, including accidents or frame damage, mileage, odometer history, number of owners, emissions history, whether it has ever been repossessed or stolen or used as a government vehicle, police car or taxi, along with title brands such as Flood, Junk and Salvage. The report also includes an AutoCheck Score Range, which compares the car to other vehicles of similar age and class to better help consumers when evaluating a used vehicle.
“Having the means to quickly and easily help a car buyer understand the important events in a vehicle’s history is critical to any dealer needing to build consumer confidence in their inventories and close more sales,” said Scott Waldron, president of Experian Automotive. “We are excited to partner with Auto/Mate in bringing their dealer clients the tools they need in giving their customers peace of mind when it comes to buying a used vehicle.”
Auto/Mate’s Automotive Management Productivity Suite 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.
